Product Description

Product Description

Korn - S/T - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

Combining the stop-start rhythms of Helmet, the hip-hop assault of Rage Against the Machine and the brooding vocals of Faith No More, Bakersfield, California band Korn concocted a golden formula that would reanimate the dormant corpse of heavy metal. The band's self-titled debut is a teenage-fantasy-endorphin-rush--a subversive noisefest as angry and hostile as Slayer but with a propulsive groove perfect for skateboarding, vandalism, or jumping up and down until you're nauseous. Songs like "Blind", "Clown", and "Shoots and Ladders" blend dark, bleak riffs with head-spinning guitar effects and scream-and-response choruses. But even at their most vitriolic, Korn imbue their blustery music with a cathartic element of fun. --Jon Wiederhorn

A previous reveiwer asked if KoRn will ever make an album as good again. Well, I have the answer - NO. This album is so aggressive, so devoid of the mainstream and ultimately so early 90's KoRn that this is a musical feat that can never be re-ccomplished - and personally I don't want it to, becuase if they were to reach these worryingly brilliant heights again, it would certainly take the shine off of this eponymous debut, the most important rock album of the last 25 years . This album has it all for the "alt. metal" fan, from the bruising welcome of 'Blind', the moody monotne of 'Faget' or the album's distressing conclusion, 'Daddy.' Basically, this album contains one classic song after another, it has no weaknesses and it is the album from which all other metal albums are judged - if you never buy another album, make sure this one is in the collection. Brilliant.

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..

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.

This is a emotionally scarring record with more brains that are hidden by the screaming vocals and the back breaking guitars.KoRn are a band that incorporates physical and mental assaults,if you don't believe me listen to "DADDY".

Well its been 15 years since I walked into the record shop as a snot nose kid and picked this up and today it sounds just as edgy fresh and unusual as it did then.
To sum up sound wise to anyone who has never heard Korn they take a lot of low end funk noise combined with hip hop stylings and vicious deep distorted guitars. This is topped of by emotional singing / beatboxing by heart on sleeve vocalist Jonathan Davis.
A loose but accurate description of their sound would be a cross between Primus (rhythms and tempo) and Alice in chains (downtuning and dark themes) with elements of public enemy (abrasive effects).
One of the rare few albums I can sit through end to end "korn" takes us through a tough disturbing journey provoking a similar feeling to nine inch nails' the downward spiral (albeit in a completlely different style) this album takes us through Drug abuse (blind) tattered friendships (ball tongue) Bullying (clown) having disturbing thoughts (shoots and ladders) to child abuse (daddy)it is a vey uncomfortible but compelling listen.
Not enough credit is ever given to korn on a musical level, Far more accomplished than many bands were on their debut the timing and delicate structures of the guitars and the driving metronomic bass and drums are a musicians delight check out the brilliant interplay between munkey and head the guitarists) or silvera (drums)and fieldys' (bass)thundering rhythms.

All in all I feel this is an essential purchase for all metal fans and fans of great music.
I added alitle bit on influences here just for ou to check out similar acts in the future.

Similar bands that preceded korn: Primus, alice in chains, Kings X, faith no more, suicidal tendencies, Helmet

Similar bands from the same time: Hed (p.e), Sevendust, orgy, limp bizkit (early),
