Call me a metal elitist, but I’ve been fantasizing more about hitting nu-metal musicians in the face than about Pamela Anderson after first watching her porn tape as a teenager. And trust me, I loved that video.
So when I see my man Fieldy of KoRn sporting a huge fucking X on his cheek, I can’t help but think I’d like to hit that. With a fist. While wearing brass knuckles.
I know, some of you superstitious assholes out there might point out that it’s actually a cross. But I see a target.
I got that image from an interview which you can watch after the jump, in case you want to hear two ambiguously white dudes pretending to be black.
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.
