BBC Review

There aren’t many bands who can claim to have invented a genre. Korn did just that, though, when their 1994 self-titled debut down-tuned heavy music and wore its vulnerability like an ugly but distinctive scar as it stared into the abyss.

Nine albums and millions of record sales later, it’s unrealistic to ask that they stay the same angry young men. Still, there’s something particularly frustrating about the way they’ve settled into a well-worn groove – complete with their trademark clicking basslines and stop-start riffs – ever since their third album, 1998’s Follow the Leader, put a gloss on their sound and sent it supernova.

Until now, that is. Tenth studio album The Path of Totality is a bold attempt at a new direction – sonically, at least. In collaboration with the vanguard of popular dubstep – most notably Skrillex and Noisia – they’ve taken their now immediately recognisable sound and put a dizzying spin on it.

They get full marks for effort but, unfortunately, not for the end results. It’s a credit to all parties involved that this doesn’t simply sound like a remix album, but once the novelty of the squelching, space-aged din they’ve birthed fades, what’s apparent is how little Korn have to say for themselves these days. Lead single Get Up! is an empty-headed party starter, while its follow-up, Narcissistic Cannibal, sounds jumbled, bloated and directionless. It doesn’t help that Jonathan Davis’ vocals are frequently swamped by what surrounds them, but even when he’s not clear it’s more than apparent that the fire that lit up early, nerve-twisting invectives against bullying (Clown) and homophobia (Faget) and big hits such as Freak on a Leash just isn’t burning here.

Still, there are a couple of edifying shocks the system. Burn the Obedient is a rare occasion on which they harness their new powers to sound truly intimidating, and closing track Bleeding Out’s use of piano, bagpipes and a coherent narrative makes it an ear-catching final call. Too much of the rest lacks the same impact, with the main consolation being that Korn have rediscovered their pioneering spirit.

After returning to basics on album number nine "Korn III-Remember Who You Are" Korn have gone all experimental again with album number ten "The Path Of Totality"(originally it was only going to be an ep) which is released a mere 17 months after their back to basics approach. Which came about after the hit and miss albums "See You On The Other Side" and "Untitled" which saw collaborations with The Matrix and Atticus Ross. "The Path Of Totality" see a whole host of collaborators mainly from the world of dubstep, the most famous being Skrillex. This reviewer is glad to say that the new approach work well for Korn and this comes from someone who loves their classic early sound.

On album opener "Chaos Lives In Everything" we are welcomed by a looped drum machine before Jonathan Davis vocals kicks in, it's got to be said Davis vocals sounds really good over these big beats with Munkys guitar also in the mix. It does seem Fieldy's famous slap/click bass sound is missing not only on this track but most of the album really. This track comes of sounding like Pendulm only much heavier. "Narcissistic Cannibal" which has already been released again features Skrillex and features a crushing barrage of beats, it's one of the standout tracks on the album along with the "Get Up" again featuring Skrillrex whose beats nicely compliment Munkys guitar and features a heavy driven chorus.

"Let's Go" which features dutch drum and bass outfit Noisia is one of the catchiest tracks on the album with a great chorus. "Burn The Obedient" starts off tame enough that's before the chorus kicks in. "On Way Too Far" which at times is really mellow before Davis delivers a death metal vocal. "My Wall" again features some real big beats with Davis changing his vocal style throughout.

Let's be honest here, when KoRn announced The Path of Totality, many people were shocked. Some people thought KoRn ruined themselves when they released "Get Up" to their SoundCloud page, others thought it was an epic piece of music

So, which is it for me??

For me, if I forget everything KoRn have done in the past and just listen to the tracks on the CD, then it's a 5 star album. Yes, there are tracks which are simply unexciting or uninteresting ("Sanctuary", "Fuels the Comedy" and "Tension" are sub-par, "Illuminati" and "Burn the Obedient" are again average), but no album has 13 tracks of pure gold. Each track depends on the mood you're in.

However, the other tracks are good, if not brilliant. "Chaos Lives in Everything" is a powerful opener and isn't overdone on the dubstep part (like the ones I mentioned above), "Kill Mercy Within" is again a perfect balance, the intro of that song is just freaking brilliant for me, "My Wall" is good, nothing really amazing about it...

Then, the highlight of the album for me.... "Narcissistic Cannibal". Truly an epic piece of work by KoRn. The combo of Korn, Skrillex and Kill the Noise just works well with this song, and every bit blends in superbly. It seems like a song that was thought of, produced and left alone because it was finished. I'm an aspiring guitarist, and I know about trying to squeeze out too much goodness out of a song, it doesn't work and often leaves the song sounding below expectations.

"Illuminati" and "Burn the Obedient" are again a good blend. Slightly questionable in parts, but a good effort. "Let's Go" is another personal favourite of mine, as it sounds like KoRn at their best, very limited dubstep, however I still prefer "Narcissistic Cannibal".

I was worried about this experiment - Korn do what they do so well they perhaps had more riding on this than other big bands who change their sound to 'mixed' results, ie Metallica with Load, Paradise Lost with Host and so on. Those experiments however, are tame compared with what Korn have done to themselves. Dubstep is a form of music that is beloved of the hipsters but derided by a lot of the rock community as another fad. Credit is due then, to Korn who have taken this form of trendy dance music and used it to update their sound. You can't do this unless you are 100% certain what you are doing is from the heart and its good to know that in Korn's case, this is true. (See the J-Devil, frontman Jonathan Davis' side -project).
Kick off 'Chaos Lives In Everything' isn't too much of a departure to be honest. Its still Korn in essence - percussive bass - check. Simple yet super heavy riffing - check. Screaming about the horrible things that live in your mind - check! Really, its the drums and production that make this album what it is - not the songwriting. Ok so they might have trucked in the trendiest names of the moment to work over their songs but Korn know what they are doing - don't worry! There's a few moments that don't work quite so well but the likes of 'Let's Go', 'Kill Mercy Within' and my favourite ,'Fules The comedy' from the bonus disk are excellent tunes.
Yes there will always be people ready to complain that Korn have 'sold out' or 'gone trendy' but ignore the cynics. This is brave, bold and a step towards something new, not just in metal but in music - in 10 years THIS will have been the blueprint for a whole new genre! Good on them!
