13 albums and still going strong.
Now I'm not going to sit here and tell you what and how much Korn means to me (if you want that you can find it HERE), nor am I going to give you Korn's back story (see previous link). No I am going to just focus on the music, and the pain that makes it.
The Nu-Metalers from Bakersfield have gone back in time for their 12th studio album The Serenity of Suffering.
Korn was my break through band, back in 98 I listened to a lot of pop and mainstream shit mainly because that was what my friends at the time liked, but after the first listen to ‘Freak on a Leash’ I was converted, my musical tastes expanded and I became a proud metalhead. I of course went back and got hold of their previous releases and my love for the band grew, I became a follower.
After almost 30 years and 8 studio albums Deftones are a force to be reckoned with, so here is the honest truth about their latest offering: Gore.
Deftones have had their ups and downs over the years. Alongside Korn they created Nu-Metal, watched the genre be taken over by copycats or as Chino Moreno called them “cookie-cutter, candy versions”, released massive albums such as Around the Fur and White Pony, then sadly watch on as their oldest friend and band member Chi Cheng had a car accident and slipped into a coma he unfortunately never recovered from, passing away in April of 2013. But through all this they never lost sight of one thing, the music they love and this album is testament of that.
