P.O.D.  


P.O.D. (Payable On Death) is a San Diego nu-metal band that draws from some familiar influences (Rage Against The Machine (particularly the earlier releases), and Korn, to name two), as well as throwing their own originality into the mix. They have been referred to as a Christian band by others, and though there is definite spirituality in the lyrics, they don't come across as preachy or heavy-handed in their approach, nor are they entirely comfortable with the label of Christian band. After a string of locally-released albums, they signed to Atlantic and hit it big with 2001's Satellite. More recently has come the first lineup change, with guitarist Marcos Curiel deciding to pursue other interests. His replacement is a veteran in the Christian extreme metal scene, former Living Sacrifice guitarist Jason Truby. 2003's Payable On Death, the first featuring Truby, is in general a more relaxed alterna-nu-metal album, though also more diverse in its approach.
