This album not only set a new genre in Metal, it introduced us to KoRn, a five-piece band from Bakersfield, California. It is on the first track, "BLIND" a grinding legend, where KoRn show exactly what they are about. Brian "Head" Welch, and James "Munky" Shaffer's guitars explode along with Reggie "Fieldy" Arvizu's unique percussion bass. David Silveria's drums along with Jonathan Davis's unqiue and sensational talent make not only Blind, but the other 11 tracks pure Metal bliss. Davis is a genius; a man fuellled by pure emotion and hate, telling a tale of his childhood lost. He is like a man possessed behind the microphone, seething and crying out pain and anger from his dark past. The lyrical talent of Davis is highlighted on "FAGET", a twisting yet grinding Metal anthem, and although "CLOWN" is similar, it too portrays the scary amount of Talent, emotion and sheer brilliance of Jonathan Davis. The album's pace only slows briefly on "SHOOTS AND LADDERS", yet this rest is brief as the track explodes with Davis's rip-roaring vocals and Head's undoubted talent. Korn are what Music should be all about - Where everything seems to go perfectly right, the music, percussion, and vocals connect on a level never before, and still never heard in Metal. On the last track on this revolutionary album, "DADDY", Davis builds his emotion throughout, eventually screaming and crying, tearing himself to pieces mentally with the darkest and most atmospheric lyrics ever written. All of KoRn's stuff is sensational, if you're a new fan then Issues would be the place to start, but KoRn - KoRn is an album ALL rock fans must own, introducing us to the greatest band of all time..
