Posted by on October 7, 2015

It’s  been 21 years since Korn released their self-titled album, which ushered in nu-metal. Because they never do what you’d expect (like spelling their name Korn instead of “corn”), instead of playing the album in its entirety to commemorate it’s 20th anniversary, they started October off by touring in support of it almost 21 years […]

Korn vocalist sued by former lawyers

Posted by on July 27, 2015

About 10 years ago, Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis was going to open a “serial killer museum.” The American Curiosities Museum fell apart, and he got sued not once but twice by his fellow investors.

Last year was Korn’s 20th anniversary of their debut, self-titled album that not only put them on the map, but essentially ushered in the nu-metal era.
