Editors’ Notes

The shift to an electronic direction on Korn’s 10th album reveals a band craving change. Frontman Jonathan Davis wrote on the Roadrunner Records website that the group is creating “future metal” by incorporating dubstep, drum and bass, and house music into its old formula. The King Midas touch of dubstep luminary Skrillex is noticeably present—especially in the opening song, “Chaos Lives in Everything,” where gigantic walls of aggressive electro textures accompany the band’s cathartic nu-metal. Skrillex ramps up his production on the standout cut “Narcissistic Cannibal” (also featuring Kill the Noise), where an arsenal of mechanics interlock with the flesh-and-blood workings of the band’s human attack. KTN also appears on the bonus track “Fuels the Comedy,” a kinetic fusion of Korn’s signature sound braided with rapcore and dubstep. Excision Datsik and Downlink appear on the second bonus song, “Tension.” Overall, The Path of Totality doesn’t sound so much like a new direction for Korn; it plays more like the remix of an entire Korn album of which there's no original version.

Oh no

The worst korn album ever why change.i have been a korn fan forever and to go this way is a joke

New sound

great fresh sounding album highlights are get up,nc,my wall,lets go,way too far and bleeding out if your looking for something that sounds diffrent and unique then this albums for you if your look for the old korn flavour then listen to the old albums and give this a miss

Throwback of sorts to old school Industrial

As a Korn fan now since day one, I went into this trying not thinking of older Korn music, and take it at face value. I came away with a vibe that some of these tracks are almost like a new take on older electro-industrial music. If you also like NIN or Reznor remixes, then this will be right up your alley.
Like Fear and the Nervous System's debut album, though, this will polarise the fan base. To this writer, however, that can be a good thing. With JD and team trying something different, the phrase; "Running water never grows stale" comes to mind.

Every metal musician, whether we like it or not, evolves over time. Max Cavalera became more heavy. Corey Taylor offshoots with more mellow tunes with Stone Sour. And here, we have Korn, exploring other areas entirely.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Korn's cathartic alternative metal sound positioned the group among the most popular and provocative to emerge during the post-grunge era. Korn began their existence as the Bakersfield, California-based metal band LAPD, which included guitarists James "Munky" Shaffer and Brian "Head" Welch, bassist Reginald "Fieldy Snuts" Arvizu, and drummer David Silveria. After issuing an LP in 1993, the members of LAPD crossed paths with Jonathan Davis, a mortuary science student moonlighting...
