Let’s be real, KO(insert backwards R)N has had a slippery slope as a band. In the earlier stages of their career (Untouchables, Follow the leader, Issues), their music was unprecedented, which lead to their platinum records and sold out shows. That may be a dream come true to many, but to Korn, it was their Kryptonite. Their lead guitarist, Brian “Head” Welch, along with drummer David Silveria, left the band, and Korn was left to reinvent themselves once again.
It’s been ten years since Brian “Head” Welch left the band, ten long years of mediocre grunge electronic rock that KORN embellished in their most recent work. Thankfully Paradigm Shift has little to do with that, and a lot to do with early KORN. Heres to another ten strong years of “Mass Hysteria”.
