    The only song by them that I like is "Anthem Of Our Dying Day" (a good choice for the current single).

    Is it true that before they were Story of a Year they were actually a nu-metal band?

    I doubt it, since they're really not metal or rock fans... mainly punk...

    Well, here (http://www.mtv.com/bands/az/story_of_the_year/bio.jhtml) is the MTV Biography on them...

    Story of the Year began as Big Blue Monkey in St. Louis, Missouri. At the time (the late '90s), the band's sound was much heavier (think Deftones), and the lineup that would become Story of the Year was not yet in place. Big Blue Monkey played frequently in and around St. Louis, issued a few EPs, and endured the lineup fluctuations typical to any struggling combo. Creative and persistent self-promotion caught the ear of producer John Feldmann, who in turn brought Maverick Records into the picture. By 2002, Big Blue Monkey had become Story of the Year, moved to Southern California, and toured with Feldmann and Goldfinger. The lineup of vocalist Dan Marsala, guitarists Ryan Phillips and Phillip Sneed, bassist Adam Russell, and drummer Joshua Willis entered the studio with Feldmann, emerging in spring 2003 with the full-length Page Avenue. Story did some Warped Tour dates that summer, and issued the record the following September. By this point the Story sound had morphed completely and comfortably into emo-inflected post-grunge, akin to groups like Thrice or the similarly Feldmann-shepherded Used. ~ Johnny Loftus, All Music Guide

    Well in Big Blue Monkey they had a different singer who was trying to sound like Chino from the Deftones and Dan was on drums. They kinda sounded like them but then the singer left and they had a different sound when Dan started singing.
