Korn - "Oildale"


KoЯn will never forget where they came from: a dark place where salvation arrives in the form of twisted, throbbing guitar riffs, syncopated chaotic funk beats, a schizophrenic bass thump and an unmistakable cathartic howl. Emerging from the depths of Bakersfield, California with a sound unlike any other in 1994, Korn have been able to cement themselves as one of the most important bands ...

Product Description


Love 'em or despise 'em, you've got to give Korn props for kick-starting a new metal movement that blends aggressive hip-hop rhythms with roaring hate-metal riffs. In the wake of the band's 1994 debut, many like-minded groups cropped up, including Deftones, Snot, and Limp Bizkit. But with the release of Korn's disappointing 1996 sophomore effort, Life Is Peachy, the imitators seemed likely to usurp the innovators. Maybe that's why Follow the Leader is so crafty and inspired. Instead of continuing on cruise control, Korn have diversified their formula, experimenting with mood and dynamics while intensifying their melody and noise thresholds. "Got the Life" blends a seductive disco beat and vocals reminiscent of Epic-era Faith No More with oppressive guitar chimes and squawks. "Children of the Korn" features a propulsive rap beat, throbbing bass lines, and angry guest vocals by Ice Cube. But just when Korn's groovin' psychedelic fury starts to make listeners see red, the band lashes out with "All in the Family", a hilarious rap-metal diss-fest duet with Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, that proves Korn are much more than the sum of their rage. --Jon Wiederhorn

Product Description

ATTENTION: The songs on this CD begin from Track #13, not from Track # 1. The first 12 tracks have 5 seconds of silence. This is not a manufacturing defect, it was the wish of the artists to begin this album from Track 13.

5.0 out of 5 stars Korn Best Album! 20 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is definately Korn's best album I have had it for quite some time. It is slightly softer than Korn and Issues but that does not make it a bad album. The best songs are 'Freak On A Leash' which is Jon's song about hating the music business, 'Got The Life', 'B.B.K', 'All In the Family' which includes Fred Durst, 'Children Of The Korn'. Also 'Pretty', 'Dead Bodies Everywhere' and 'It's On' are good songs as well. Jonathon Davis does a lot less screaming in this than in his first studio album and this unlike Issues dosn't have any short filler songs so it is just pure music all the way through and I strongly recommend you buy this even if your new to Korn and if you are new to Korn then this would be the album I would buy to see if you like them.
The drumming is a lot better on this record than Korn and Life is Peachey. The guitaring is also more melodic rather than just chords.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is good. 16 Feb 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yo. I just wanna say that KoRn are an incredible band. I'm not sure about their 2 previous albums but this is the one that shows KoRn's true talent. If you want a KoRn album to start on, chose this. Now, the things that make this album good. Well, the sheer truth and pain that goes into the Jon's vocals is incredible. Head and Munky's riffs are outstanding and send that shiver up your spine. The basslines by fieldy and the drumbeats by David combine to create an aggressive mix. The best songs in my opinion are It's On!, Freak on a leash, Reclaim my place and Dead bodies everywhere. The 2 to avoid are Children of the Korn and All in the family. These 2 feature the rappers Ice Cube and Fred Durst. I normally like Rap and Hip-Hop but these are just out of tune and embarassing. I also have issues, which is only marginally worse. BUY 'EM BOTH!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Meaning Of Really Rather Quite Angry 19 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
In 2005 metal may have slipped back out of the mainstream again, replaced by grime / dub step / bhangra n'roll / whatever genre the ever-twitching music press have re-invented this week, but listening to Korn's quite unreasonably furious third album Follow the Leader again, it's as if the world never quite caught up with just how pissed off the Bakersfield boys were - and for this reason and this reason alone they just had to stay angry forever (Apart from Mr. Head of course - Jesus had other ideas). Issues and Untouchables saw Korn retreading the same old doom-rock ground of old, with Jonathan Davies still roaring like a eight-year-old with ADD - but right from the off, Korn's terrifying ire kicks you violently in the gut and doesn't stop doing so until the album ends. Sure, there are moments of respite - All In The Family was funny, at least before anyone had heard of Fred Durst - but the diabolically heavy likes of It's On, Dead Bodies Everywhere - and My Gift To You do their best to break the windows with sheer crushing force. Davis's vocals are staggering - Jonathan has said in interviews that his favourite singer of all time is Freddie Mercury - and maybe this explains the often camp melodrama of his phrasing - at least on the parts when he's not trying to drown out every scream and bellow Max Cavalera has ever uttered in his life. Then there's the music - the never ending bottom end! Fieldy's bizarre rattling Primus-y bass! The crazy mid-song prog-jazz scat freakouts! But never mind the analysis - Follow The Leader is just really, really, insanely heavy, and bleeds unhinged fury from every nu-metal pore. And with it, Korn made - and still do make - most of their contemporaries look like a bunch of old Daniel O'Donnell-loving grannies.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm Surprised To Say...I Like It 27 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those moments where your ears are telling you something, and your mind and your friends are telling you something completely different. Thankfully I didn't give into the latter and have always enjoyed music for what it is and not who it's by. As no doubt everyone knows, KoRn are a nu-metal band, more than likely, the very first, as my knowledge on them isn't exactly wide-spread. All I know about them 15 days ago, was that they performed vicious nu-metal, turgid riffs and delicate but raging vocals. The other side you hear is that they're...constantly depressed...boring...samesy...and that they're just not as people as their music portrays. Thankfully, I can, on my own behalf, eradicate 2 of the 4. While they do stick to a similar style throughout, KoRn are still pretty varied, and it certainly isn't a boring style, as KoRn's own brand of metallic groove based metal is actually quite thrilling...
And despite many people's opinion that Johnathan Davies is just a whiner, he does have a terrific voice. Or should I say voices.
There are two primary elements to KoRn's music. The metallic grooving of the guitars and the weapon in Davies' throat. The crunch of the guitars in the likes of 'opener', 'It's On!' and 'Got The Life', build up slowly and when they do start pacing at full pelt, they pull you in and don't let go, and while being hauled in, that weapon in Davies' throat is just getting ready to blow...his wide array of vocal styles adds a unique sound to KoRn without even starting on the guitars and fine drumming. On 'Follow The Leader', KoRn are almost 3D and could be standing right there in front of you, such is the visual abilites that the music lends itself out to.
It's also pure rage throughout, which I suppose is to be expected.
