KORN “The Paradigm Shift”

WHATS UP NATION!? This is The Concert Cruizer here and this week were gonna look at the new album from one of the pioneers of “NU METAL”. I have been a big fan of theirs for a long time and with the return of their second guitarist Brian “HEAD” Welch I could not wait to check out

KORN “The Paradigm Shift”

I was so thrilled about this new album it marked the return of Head, brought back that groove writing style, and I couldn’t wait to hear how Ray (Their newest drummer) was gonna sound with Brian…..but, then I heard the first single Never Never. It was catchy but it wasn’t the kind of song I was hoping for but, luckily my fears were laid to rest when I heard the second single Love & Meth. This song got me back into the excitement for this record and it did not disappoint.

This collection of songs has familiar feel to it, almost as if it was the missing seventh album, it had all the elements of their previous records as well as some new ones. Munky and Head still being a great & cohesive unit, Fieldy bringing back that percussion style of playing, Jonathan Davis manages to bring that vengeful sound, and Ray Luzier has proven he is a suitable replacement for their previous drummer. This album is just great and I give it 4 \m/\m/\m/\m/ out of 5. Korn it’s great to have you back, I can’t to see you guys live again, and I hope I can meet Brian “Head” Welch.
