5.0 out of 5 stars This is KoRN, 18 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Korn (Audio CD)
Welcome to one of THE most important metal albums of the nineties. Some would say this is not real metal but "nu-metal", if that is true then this is where nu-metal began. Korn's explosive debut album as a 5-piece (they have a previous release under the name L.A.P.D. but are missing Jon Davis) kicks off with lead singer Jonathan Davis' menacing growl of "Are your ready?" after the simple intro to the first track Blind. That isn't the end of the growlong for this album by any means, Davis sings his highly emotionally charged lyrics by singing, screaming, growling, and simply barking gibberish. This is all on top of the low tuned 7-string madness of Head and Munky, who bring a whole new dimensional sound to the guitar world on this album, the thumping hip hop beats of David Silvera, probably one of the best drummers around, and the unique slap/dampened clicking of Fieldy's basslines. Every track on this album could be released seperately and do very well, Faget being one of the more stand out tracks, is a twisted, grinding foray into the past of Davis and the childhood taunts by his fellow school children. Daddy is probably the most emotional track because of the disturbing story it tells, one of a childhood destroyed by sickening acts of abuse, it is because of this story the Korn have only ever been played it in it's entirety twice. All in all this is an excellent, well rounded, angst and low guitar fuelled rollercoaster straight into the dank dark recesses of Jonathan Davis' soul. A ride which should not be missed.

you are talking about the wrong album mate. this album is Korn - Untitled, not Korn - self titled (i.e Korn - Korn).

Untitled is their newest release so far, and self titled was their debut so anyone reading this dont be misled :)
