Ty's Concert Reports Part I: Korn 23/03

I bet that some of you were expecting me to come up with a review one of these days but sadly rI'm still suffering from a massive writer's block... But anyway, as most of you know I'm a rfervent Korn fan so when someone told me they were playing here in Belgium I didn't have to rthink twice. Here's the report!
Life is Peachy
See You On The Other Side
Korn III: Remember Who You Are
Follow The Leader
Take A Look In The Mirror
10 Jdevil

Jonathan's dj set was pretty weird, considering the fact that most of the time he was just jumping around
instead of actually doing stuff at the turntables... Still, he got the crowd going as best as he could (there were
a lot of old grumpy Ko?n fans that kept complaining about 'all that loud electronic stuff, it's not music...') and
his set was actually pretty varied, going from brostep to hardcore... Overall: a pretty fun and varied set: 7/10
11 Downlink

Dowlink's set was just boring, the main factor of his set being, of course,
built on brostep, which the crowd didn't seem to really enjoy all that much...
The little bits of d'nb thrown in couldn't really save his set from eternal
damnation but he luckily managed to redeem himself (albeit only partially)
with a (wtf!) Lamb of God remix... Overall, this was a pretty big
dissapointment: 5/10
The Path of Totality

Korn used to be one of the flagships of the nu-metal movement, but one by one their compaignions died
out or chose other paths. After a while, being the last man standing, Korn decided that it was time for
them to try something new too. So they made, The Path of Totality, which was an interesting experiment
to say the least, trying to fuse brostep with their core nu-metal elements... This actually worked out pretty
well on the album, but would they be able to fuse all those new elements into a good live show?
The answer is: kinda...
When you take a look at the setlist you can see that for the most part they are still playing it safe by
putting the big bangers like 'Here To Stay', 'Shoots and Ladders', 'Freak on A Leash' (how could they not
play this) and so forth on their setlist. As if they wanted to encapsulate the newer songs into this big
cocoon of bombastic nostalgia... But
anyways, aside from the pointless shit being shown on the big plasma screen (I could have sworn I saw
strange stripes on my retina for days) it was a pretty cool show. Even though Jonathan had gotten really
thin (probably from all the cocaine) and fieldy looked like he rather wanted to be somewhere else the show
still rocked hard. Jonathan's clean vocals have waned a bit but when he did that amazing rasp of his we
knew he was 'Here To Stay' (sorry!). The weakest part of the whole set was actually their Pink Floyd cover,
which was sloppy to say the least. Munky really shouldn't do any guitar solos, ever... But hey, the new
songs rocked hard (they fould something useful for Munky to do during them too!), their older material
rocked even harder, and now I know that Ray Luzier is the man. The only bad thing about their set is that
they only played 16 songs instead of the 18 they did everywhere else, damned.
Conclusion: Fuck that shit 8/10
