Metal Hammer Festival returns to life after a two-year gap. The new edition will take place on August 27th at Spodek Hall in Katowice, Poland and will be headlined by the revolutionary multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning rockers - KORN. The full line-up to be announced soon!
Over the course of eight full-length releases, Korn have sold in excess of 30 million albums and played countless sold-out shows worldwide. They've won two Grammys - one for Best Short Form Video for 'Freak On A Leash' from 1998's Follow The Leader and one for Best Metal Performance for 'Here To Stay' from 2002's Untouchables - and have launched a massively successful festival of their own, The Family Values Tour. However, despite all their massive success and accolades. Korn haven't lost hold of the savage, raw energy that made them such a crucial band for diehard rock and metal fans. Korn are one of the preeminent voices of this generation. Their ninth offering, Korn III - Remember Who You Are, is scheduled for release on July 12th and it bursts at the seams with that very feeling that defined the band from get-go. The album strikes the balance between their past and their future, as it finds the band reuniting with producer Ross Robinson, who manned the boards for their first two albums, all the while joining forces with Roadrunner Records.
Current line-up: Jonathan Davis (vocals), Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu (bass), James "Munky” Shaffer (guitar), Ray Luzier (drums).
