Tag Archives: Korn
Speaking of stuff that belongs in the era where computer speed was determined by the number that stood next to “Pentium,” Korn have actually announced they’ve started working on a new album. No, seriously, they did.
That would probably be their third project this month, if we take the term “project” loosely and apply it to Jonathan’s Macbook and the latest random noise that came out of it.
I guess kudos to them for being so busy and always working (something a certain someone who sleeps for 12 hours a day could look up to ), but seriously guys, you shouldn’t. I mean, seriously, get a hobby or something. Thanks, our ears.
We all know Korn as the band who invented metal ten years ago. They also reinvented it last year with their metalstep project, and it seems now they’re about to do the same to acoustic music.
A while back Metal Hammer posted about the above cover of Korn‘s Narcissistic Cannibal by British rock band The Dirty Youth. Seems that the band heard the song, and decided to take the band on tour with them for some European dates. Our only guess is that they’ll also write a “revolutionary” acoustic album together. Oh wait…
I’ve learned about two new “supergroups” this past week. One features David Silveria (former Calvin Klein model/drummer for Korn) and the second features Dani Filth (former Versace model/vocalist for Cradle of Filth). Good thing they’re in separate bands because crossing them in one would probably result in Earth imploding just to prevent the sounds exiting our orbit and doing damage to the solar system.
The band David’s in is called Infinika, and it also features members of Anyone (as in, “Anyone ever heard about this band?), and I gotta say, the music kinda sucks. But hey, it seems they’re doing it to have fun and to pay off whatever debts and drug habits David’s picked up since leaving Korn and selling his drums on eBay. You can listen to and watch a promo clip above.
Dani’s project is called Temple of the Black Moon, and no, it’s not the next Transformers movie, it’s a band featuring Rob Caggiano (Anthrax), King (ex-Gorgoroth) and John Tempesta (The Cult). I didn’t find any clips with music previews, but if you’re really interested and like, really, really bored, you can “like” their Facebook page for further updates.
I didn’t know Walmart had gone Yahoo! and shit, and now offers some web series to promote artists and in turn make money from album sales on their music store. Not saying anything bad about it, just pointing out didn’t know about it. Also, I want to point out some metal news sites reported Korn were actually shooting a commercial for Walmart, and gloat over that. We at Dose of Metal would never do that (except I almost reported the news myself but felt too lazy to write about Korn).
The thing is called Walmart Soundcheck, and the band performed a few songs from their new album on it. Also, I should point out that Jonathan appears in his wubstep JDEVIL persona (with those creepy looking eye lenses and grills), which I thought was created to separate his solo stuff from the band. I guess it’s now safe to say that the band is nothing but a back up band to whatevs he’s doing at the moment. And he’s dubsteppin’, brah!
You can watch the (actually pretty good) performance of their classic Falling Away From Me and three new songs. If you really feel like it: click here!
The other news is still a rumor at this point, and being the quality journalist I am, I’m leaving it for the end and if I weren’t that lazy I’d also change the font to “smallprint” — there’s speculation that Korn and Slipknot might co-headline this years Mayhem fest. Will bring you confirmation when we get it.
Korn‘s Munky is one of the best metal guitarists of all time. By ‘best’ I mean ‘pretty bad,’ and by ‘metal guitarist’ I mean ‘nu-metal power chorder.’
But still, the guy is famous enough to marry a known actress, by ‘famous’ I mean ‘not famous at all’ and by ‘known actress’ I mean ‘who the hell is she?’
I don’t want to be a party pooper, cause marriage is a pretty beautiful thing… If by beautiful you mean emasculating, depressing, and sad. Anyway, Munky married a girl in France. He proposed to her on the Eiffel Tower… 3, 2, 1…
And according to Radar Online, they’re going to a secret location for their honeymoon. Judging by Korn‘s latest effort’s success, I’m betting the ‘secret location’ will be McDonald’s or something.
When asked what he thought of his former bandmate’s wedding, former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch said “No comment” and nailed himself to a cross.
Munky of Korn was interviewed again, for some reason. This time he was interviewed by The Pulse Of Radio. You can check the interview out at Blabbermouth.
In the interview, Munky describes how home is the place to be at Christmas, and that’s literally it.
Well Munky, fucking duh! I hate people, so Christmas is awesome, because you get to spend it without seeing a single other person. Plus you have a chance to get smashed. Brilliant.
Meanwhile, Korn fans have the difficult decision to decide whether to buy the new album this Christmas for $15, or wait until next Christmas when they’ll be able to get the band to perform in their living room for the same price. Personally, I’d choose neither, because Korn suck.
Munky of Korn fame recently spoke to Peter Hodgson of IHeartGuitarBlog.com about the recording of the new album, The Path of Totality.
The Korn guitarist has described the making of the album as ‘challenging’ (I know what you mean Munky, I found it challenging to listen to) and discussed some other stuff I was way too lazy to read. Honestly, reading that drivel was more depressing than the time I got hit by a car.
You can read it all over at Blabbermouth.
I’m not gonna lie, I don’t really like Korn, and that’s putting it nicely. Thing is, when they decided to add dubstep to their sound, I realized I hate them almost as much as I hate Linkin Park or Nine Inch Nails.
The problem with tier dubstep album is that it sold enough records to warrant another ‘effort’ from them where the only instrument used is a Macbook Pro. I wish it would have pulled a Lulu and just failed, just to teach them a lesson. Instead, it probably sent a message: “Make your shitty music even shittier by adding random computer-generated beats to it — it will sell even in this shitty economy.”
“Korn‘s 10th studio album, The Path Of Totality, sold 55,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart.”

Congratulations people, way to ruin an already ruined music scene.
After the jump I will treat you to a listenable song from this band, with one of my favorite music videos of all time.
Hate torrents? Afraid of RIAA? Well, you can now do it legally, via Roadrunner’s website. Click here to listen to The Path of Totality.
If you’re up for some mind-blowing guitar solos, faster than light drumming and bass lines that make Evan Brewer shit his pants, you’re at the wrong place, bro.
Just a couple of weeks ago, the UK’s Kerrang magazine counted down their top 10 heaviest albums of all time. The thing is with Kerrang’s list, though, was I just couldn’t really agree with it. I mean they had The Beatles in the top 10! It was obvious the list was a bit of a joke, so I decided I would put together my own top 10. A top 10 that was just a bit more credible, serious, and would appeal more to so called “real” metalheads.
So to the elite, for real fans of Metal, this top 10 is for you. I hope ya’ll enjoy it, yo.
