Biography

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 or innovation though. In fact, they've been purveyors of heavy music's ... Read more in Amazon's Korn Store

Amazon.com

The band that unwittingly begat the current, if waning, rap-metal frenzy, Korn has been semidormant since 1999's multiplatinum Issues, while bands they inspired, such as Linkin Park, have ruled the charts and minds of disenfranchised teens. The wait for Untouchables' 14 cutting cuts is more than worth it, however. The quintet's heavy sound and lyrical angst have not been dulled by success. Singer Jonathan Davis's often agonized, cathartic lyrics and slightly lispy, emotive delivery are as heavy and varied as on previous outings. On the first single, "Here to Stay," which boasts a spooky, Nine Inch Nails feel and Fieldy's aggro, down-tuned bass, Davis growls in pain, "This state is elevating / As the hurt turns into hating / Anticipating all the f---ed up feelings again."

Among and within songs, Korn move seamlessly and dynamically from gentle, spooky, and lushly melodic to a bass-heavy propulsive, explosive musicality. "Embrace" is almost grandiose and Cult-like in its rock drama, in contrast to the punky, straight-up "Wake Up Hate," on which Davis's vocals are especially creepy and Marilyn Manson-like as he rants: "I'm, I'm filthy/ Wasted piece of s--t/ I am disgusting/ Take me away." Untouchables, with its brutal introspection and hints of misogyny, is sure to earn its parental advisory sticker. But the album is still a must-have: 62 minutes of deeply felt, ultra-intense spewings, a tour de force that will strike a chord with fans and critics alike. --Katherine Turman


Customer Reviews

Keep making good albums like i know you can.
Roger
To me the album feels and sounds like the Korn boys have grown up and matured musically, and it shines through in their most recent album, Untouchable.
Jenn Harry
They have some really good songs like Here To Stay, Thoughtless, Alone I Break, and No Ones There, which are my favorites.

Is it possible for a C.D. to be over-hyped and underrated?

Following a three year break with no new material from Korn, "Untouchables" became one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2002. Plus, the band members couldn't keep their mouths shut about the new album, saying it was one of the best things they've ever done. But, after hearing Korn's fifth album, I still prefer their self-titled debut and "Follow the Leader" over this. So, "Untouchables" was a bit over-hyped, but it was also simultaneously underrated, because the general response to it was disappointment. Plus, even though it sold 700,000 copies in its first week of being on the shelves, "Untouchables" just barely managed to gain platinum certification. Many fans thought it sounded over-produced and was too "poppy." Why must a new sound always mean the band sold out?

I have a different word for this album: creative. Michael Beinhorn, a virtuoso producer, makes "Untouchables" have *gasp* a new sound. This C.D. sounds robust, and it sometimes seems like it was recorded in a ten pound drum. Korn have been criticized for making the same album again and again, so they change their sound for their fifth album, and what happens? Some people STILL criticize them. Another problem with this album is that it didn't translate well live. That's why Korn quickly followed up this album with 2003's "Take A Look in the Mirror."

And even though it has some big choruses, well thought-out songs, and even a soft song ("Alone I Break" is the closest thing to a ballad Korn have ever written; Jonathan Davis sings clearly and properly over a digitized beat and Blue Man Group-esque drums,) the majority of this album is very heavy.

Format: Audio CD
Its been nearly 3 long years since music's most compelling band has released an album. Many fans who thought "Issues" was a bit flat (which granted, it was) were eagerly anticipating KoRn's next release in the hopes that it would save "nu-metal" from the past 3 years of monotonous, imitator music put out by polised, radio friendly bands like Disturbed, Linkin Park, Puddle of Crap, etc. Well fans of real music, the day has arrived. "Untouchables" is here and it does not dissappoint.
I, like thousands of others, downloaded this CD back in March, but I also made damn sure that I was one of the first in line to buy the CD midnight on June 11th. This is a great CD, as its the next logical progression from "Issues". If I were to compare it to any other KoRn album, it would probably be "Issues", only "Untouchables" has much more memorable riffs, choruses, and songs in general. "Issues" seemed thrown together and each song seemed to bleed into the next with no real focus. "Untouchables", however, is very well put together. Practically every song is memorable and KoRn pushes the boundaries of their sound on songs like "Hollow Life", which has a very serious/eerie vibe to it. Then you have songs like "Hating", which has an 80s electronica vibe to it with a very big, epic sound. "Wake Up Hate" has a major techno/rave sound while still remainng quite heavy.
The great thing about this album is that it is innovative, and it makes the other wannabe bands in the scene look very unoriginal and stupid. Albums like this are what is needed to keep the scene legitimate and keep it evolving.

It seems to me that this album's relative lack of commercial success can be attributed to confusion. "Confusion" is the term I think fits best when describing the general reaction of fans. Many people didn't quite know what to think when Untouchables came out. It was highly anticipated, if I recall, and it certainly wasn't what people expected. So as a result, this is one of the most divisive Korn albums - ask three people what they think of it. One will hate it and yell "sell out!" Another will love its progressive tendancies. Still a third won't know what to tell you. And probably won't listen to the album anymore. After all, nu metal fans aren't best known for their patience.

The album itself is a patchwork amalgamation of catchy pop-metal, industrial sludge, experimental creepiness, and trademark Korn aggro grooves. The production is slick and round and the songs aren't really reminiscent of any sound Korn has had in the past. It is creative and unique in Korn's catalogue. I'm sure many filler fans were disappointed that this wasn't Follow the Leader Part Two - but going backwards is a real quick way to end your career in music (as we are seeing with many a mediocre nu metal band that is slipping through the cracks now.) Most of all, this album took risks. Even when the risks don't work out, you have to give them credit for being bold and foreward-thinking. And, one thing that is important to point out, Jonathan's voice is incredible here - his time spent with a vocal coach payed off big time on Untouchables.

The best songs on this album are the songs that sound absolutely nothing like anything Korn has ever done. My favorite song on this album would probably have to be the ethereal, beautiful (yes I said "beautiful", at the risk of immasculating myself) "Hollow Life.
