Korn Go Dubstep, Finally

Sometimes, you just have to let the artists speak for themselves, so all intentions and ambitions are just out there in the ether. When Korn announced that they were going to make an all-dubstep album (of course!), here’s what lead singer Jonathan Davis had to say about the set, called The Path Of Totality:

The title ’The Path Of Totality’ refers to the fact that in order to see the sun in a full solar eclipse, you must be in the exact right place in the exact right time. That’s how this album came together. I think all the producers feel the same way. I’m not sure it could ever happen again.

Korn bassist Fieldy, on dubstep:

Jonathan loved it [dubstep] and he just got us into it. We feel it’s important to stay current and keep on top of what’s going on.

Right. Korn already has a single out from this affair called “Get Up!” which is produced by Skrillex. The album will also feature production from Excision, Datsik and 12th Planet. May God have mercy on our souls.

  1. More like “Freak On A Yeeeesh” who’s with me

  2. If Korn didn’t exist I’d have to make them up.

    I think I’m going to have to side with James Blake on all of this… (http://lizpelly.com/post/10769210213/i-think-the-dubstep-that-has-come-over-to-the-us)

  4. Wait, isn’t the new Tombs album named “Path of Totality?” This is unacceptable.

  5. Match made in the eery depths of your local trash compactor.

  6. I can’t decide if this will make two bad genres worse, or actually improve them by giving brostep actual songs rather than a series of cheesy buildups to beat drops, and nu-metal… well, relevance for the first time in a decade.

    I’m genuinely hoping for the latter :(

  7. I think I just threw up in my mouth. 9 times.

  8. No. Sorry but, no!

  9. Oddly enough, they’re the most talented musicians to ever make dubstep.

  10. And then suddenly, Lou Reed + Metallica sounds like a genius move. :/

  11. People who were into dubstep back when it was actually dubstep (2005-2008) are all dying of barfness at the prolonged, perverse death of this genre. Dubstep is so far past being over, it’s just embarrassing now. It’s been over since 2008. Anyone claiming to make dubstep in 2011 is a complete fraud. The originators have all moved on- to post-dubstep, funky, UK Bass, and a myriad of other hybrid genres. Scuba is making tech-house now (and damn good tech-house at that.)

    “Dubstep” today has virtually no traces of the original genre. Its goddamn terrible, and the only people who like it are suburban white-trash posers with awful taste is music. This album will be a smash hit with the Skrillex crowd, i’m sure.

    All of these goddamn idiots need to go back in time to 2006, listen to Horsepower Productions, Kode9, everything on Skull Disco, Peverelist, etc… and then realize that what they are listening to now is nothing more than farty electro from 2007 with a half-time beat.

  12. fart. shit. puke.

  13. “and he just got us into it. We feel it’s important to stay current and keep on top of what’s going on.”
    I’m gonna say this the way they meant it
    “we listened to dubstep, saw all the fans the music genre had, so we thought we would make a dubstep because we want to stay mainstream”

  14. Doesn’t get much classier than this.

  15. Lets ‘keep on top of whats going on’ by jumping on to a fad thats damn near worn to death. great plan. then again these guys have always blown.

  16. What’s next? Chino Morena doing a Witch House album? Oh wait…

  17. nooooooooooooooo

  18. “we feel it’s important to stay current and keep on top of what’s going on” uhhh, or it could be more important to just stick to what you already suck at. i mean, jesus.

  19. I want a Korn album produced by Lex Luger.
