Korn will never forget where they came from: a dark place where salvation arrives in the form of twisted, throbbing guitar riffs, syncopated chaotic funk beats, a schizophrenic bass thump and an unmistakable cathartic howl. Emerging from the depths of Bakersfield, California with a sound unlike any other in 1994, Korn have been able to cement themselves as one of the most important bands in rock n' roll history.
Now in 2010, the band emerge with their ninth studio offering, Korn III: Remember Who You Are, an album which bursts at the seams with that very feeling that defined the band from the get-go. Korn bleed with unsettling and unpredictable aggression on Remember Who You Are's 10 tracks, including opener "Oildale (Leave Me Alone)" which buzzes with an eerie clean guitar that slowly gives way to a steamrolling bass and riff assault.
