Editorial Reviews

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.

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.

If you can accept that a groundbreaking band such as Korn deserves the right to stretch out in new, bold directions as they choose, consider the following:

There are many warp/vortex like electronic sounds here that sound similar on each track, with beats that break up the song with moments of nearly complete silence one half second, to heavy electronics the next coupled with plenty of loud drums with a nice groove if you like this style on occasion.

Combine that with Jonathan Davis, a bit more laid back here. Other than GET UP, you won't hear much of his awesome screaming vocals on this album sadly. Instead, he chooses to sing most of the lyrics and does a good job of it. But I miss the aggression of his voice. He lets the music be the aggressor here most of the time as he sings the verses and choruses.

MELODIES/RIFFS: There are some seriously CRUSHING riffs that take no prisoners on this album, but to be a bit critical, they eventually begin to blend into each other from track to track. Separately, they can be impressive, but not enough original sound synths were used, so you'll tend to hear a lot of familiar sounds throughout each track, as though they were substituting these synths for guitars. But the synths aren't as expressive or adaptive it seems. This is my biggest criticism nex to the overall lack of Davis' trademark screams.

With time, this album may grow on me, but after two listens, the lack of Davis' aggressive screams and the repetitive sounding synths hurt what could've been a very varied album with plenty of original tracks. Instead, it mostly melts together.

There are some very cool sounding tracks here to discover, and on their own separate from the rest of the album, they'd be stronger.

i have always found something to love in everything korn has produced. although they have had a few missteps in their 10-album career (not a huge fan of most of "take a look in the mirror"), i have always admired their tendency to flirt with other styles of music and/or sounds, and i think jonathon davis was right in that this time they nailed it. as soon as i heard dubstep music and the possibility of a korn collaboration, i instantly had a feeling that the two styles would compliment each other nicely. after listening to "the path of totality" at least ten times through at this point, i can say my early predictions were indeed the case. this album is atmospheric, heavy, and has many textures. i highly suggest listening to it in headphones, so you can hear all the subtleties in the album. jonathon's vocals are extremely catchy throughout the entire album, just don't look to his lyrics for any higher-learning (not that we ever really did). davis has always been his best a. in the beginning when his tortured emotions were probably more warranted and b. when his lyrics are vague enough that they can really be applicable to many of life's predicaments. it is when he tries to get political (i.e. illuminati) that he fails. korn has never really been a thinking man's metal band to me, so i think they should stay that way (as odd as that may sound). overall this is the best performance JD has given us in a long, long, long time. don't let the other reviewer's distaste for the "lack of growls" fool you. this is the definitive JD singing experience, and there are definitely some fun growls, scat, and bagpipe to be heard (like any korn album should have). the music itself sounds great.Read more ›
