The two bands joined forces at Wembley Arena on Friday night for this mega metal collab.
Jokes about nu metal being korny aside, the Bakersfield boys are back with a storming album...
Achieving the impossible by somehow making kilts and bagpipes cool, Bakersfield boys Korn were one of nu metal’s original sons. It feels as though the band we once knew have been absent for far too long so it’s with some relief that ‘…Remember Who You Are’ grinds with a righteous, down-tuned fury that signals the band moving with a common purpose. The rumbling grooves of ‘Oildale (Leave Me Alone)’ and ‘Move On’ remind you of everything you ever loved about Korn, while ‘Let The Guilt Go’ is an absolute monster and will easily go toe-to-toe against mosh anthems like Slipknot’s ‘Duality’ and Drowning Pool’s ‘Bodies’ without breaking a sweat. Super producer Ross Robinson has been given the unenviable task of bottling lightning, and he’s certainly earned his money this time round; from Jonathan Davis’ tortured, primal yelps to the pounding drums and a bass sound that ebbs and flows violently through your extremities. Damn, you can even hear the sound of fingers moving along guitar strings as the album crushes and crunches around you. Track for track ‘…Remember Who You Are’ is easily the equal of any of their fi rst three classic albums and sees these freaks back off the leash again.
