1. DVD: The Encounter
Korn embrace the future on The Path of Totality, their tenth full-length studio album and second for Roadrunner Records. Infusing dubstep anarchy into their signature sound, the legendary quartet stand on the cusp of a musical revolution for both hard rock and electronica. Korn are no strangers to revolution though. In fact, they've been purveyors of heavy music's progression since forming in Bakersfield, CA in 1994 and becoming one of the most influential entities that the genre has ever seen.
Korn usher in a new horizon for heavy music with The Path of Totality. Collaborating with dubstep heavyweights Skrillex, Excision, Downlink, Noisia, Feed Me, 12th Planet, and Flinch, Korn have constructed a hypnotic hybrid of dubstep and metal. Bouncing from polyrhythmic guitar pummeling into drastic electro drops, the music is dark, dangerous, and definitive Korn.
This CD/DVD set includes a 2-Hour Live DVD of The Encounter Crop Circle Concert, exclusive interview footage, and 2 exclusive bonus tracks.
I have been a long time fan of Korn and though I have mixed feelings about particular albums for the most part I enjoy everything they've released to date. This is a band that has never been afraid to experiment with their sound and never have truly had a signature sound as each album has a feel all it's own. Whether it be the sheer rawness of their 1994 debut or the spacey dramatics on Issues, each release has significant differences that allow it to stand on it's own.The Path of Totality is by far their most drastic experimentation to date. Featuring a wide array of various Dubstep, Drum and Bass, and Electro House artists. We have heard Korn utilize more electronica in their music (Issues, Untouchables) and the finished product was of excellent quality. (in my opinion) we see the same on The Path of Totality. I feel it was a brave step in an interesting direction and that the mixture of electronic elements breaths new life into a band that has, for the last few albums been straying away from experimenting with their sound.The DVD included in the Special Edition is worth the extra cash. It includes the entire Korn Live: The Encounter that was broadcasted on HDNet in 2010. This live concert was in support of Korn III - Remember Who You Are and features mostly tracks from that album, however their are some excellent older tracks scattered here and there especially towards the end. The DVD also includes interviews with the entire band regarding The Encounter performance and also their opinions on The Path of Totality. The Special Edition also includes two bonus tracks "Fuels the Comedy" and "Tension" both being excellent additions to the album.I personally feel this is one of Korn's best releases in years. I love the new sound and am enjoying the contrast of Korn's signature low gritty heaviness to the high energy electronica. One has to wonder if this is a sign that we can expect more experimentation in the future or was this simply a step away from the norm and we see a return to the gritty hard rock group they have been on their last couple releases? Only the future will tell, but by what I have heard on The Path of Totality I truly hope this is a trend that Korn runs with on future albums.
