I know there are junkies on the site that are Korn fans, so I feel it's my duty to let you know new samples of the band's upcoming release, Korn III: Remember Who You Are have been posted. Take a listen to those in the video embedded above. Do not expect a musical shift to neo-melodeath. It sounds very much like Korn has sounded for the last 15 years. The tracks sampled are "Pop A Pill", "Let The Guilt Go" and "The Past" . The album drops July 13th.

Whenever I read a review about an album, song or live show, I can't help but ask myself, "Who the hell is this to be publishing an opinion? What have they done to make their viewpoint so damn special?" It's something I think about whenever I pick up a magazine or read an article on one of my favorite music websites. Now as I'm about to review a new KORN single entitled Oildale, I couldn't help but ask myself the same question… and to me the answer is simple. I used to be a giant KORN fan. Growing up in the band's home state of California, I would persevere through the onslaught of garbage on Total Request Live every single weekday just so I could watch the latest KORN video. When they finally beat the BACKSTREET BOYS and NSYNC for the top spot on the countdown, I lost my mind! It was a victory for rock fans everywhere and a big FU to the boy band craze of the late 1990's. (more…)
ShareIt's official! Call your grandmother (I don't know why she would care, but call her anyway). The complete official lineup for this summer's (Metal Injection sponsored) Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival has been announced and it's certainly an eclectic buffet of hard rock and heavy metal using a something for everybody approach. Without further ado: (more…)
It's not even January and already word is leaking out about headliners for the biggest summer festival around, Mayhem Festival.
Current KORN drummer Ray Luzier let the cat out of the bag during a recent interview and revealed that his band would be headlining the summer festival. Meanwhile, ThePRP is reporting that Rob Zombie will headline the festival as well, which makes perfect sense seeing as though he is about to put an album out.
Meanwhile, Jamey Jasta was a little more subtle about HATEBREED being on the bill. When speaking to Metal Mark, he said "We're gonna be on a very big summer tour, which I just can't say just yet, but most people will probably guess." Now, he could also mean Ozzfest, which is rumored to be returning next summer.
How do you guys feel about these initial announcements? Who would you like to see on the bill?
It's really hard to make fun of this endevour because it is for a good cause, but I couldn't resist posting that title. KORN bassist Fieldy Snuts got a bunch of musicians (a who's who of 90s rock radio favorites and uhh Adam from Killswitch Engage) to collaborate on a song that will be sold with proceeds donated to the large collection of medical bills Deftones bassist Chi Cheng is incurring after a tragic car accident in November. The song could be purchased here with more info on donating at oneloveforchi.com. The full list of contributors to the track (as seen above) are:
Jim Root (Slipknot)
Sid Wilson (Slipknot)
Ray Luzier (Korn)
Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu (Korn)
Dave McClain (Machine Head)
Robert Trujillo (Metallica)
Clint Lowery (Sevendust)
Morgan Rose (Sevendust)
Brian 'Head' Welch (ex-Korn)
James 'Munky' Shaffer (Korn)
Wayne Lozinak (Hatebreed)
Mike Wengren (Disturbed)
Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage)
Headbangers Blog has posted a new podcast interview with the enigmatic Jonathan Davis of KORN . Its quite the interview, where Davis addresses the rumors that the band has broken up (which is false, they are all just doing solo stuff at the moment). He announces during the interview that the band has booked studio time in November with producer Ross Robinson (who also produced their first two records) so look for the press releases for this album to say "KORN comes back to their roots". Davis also talks about how he wants to work with Head again and how David Silveria may never play live with the band again.
