Korn Play The Wellmont Theatre Tonight

May 22nd, 2013

Despite little publicity, nu-metal pioneers Korn made a big splash with their eponymous debut full-length back in 1994. But it was their third album, the hip-hop-and-heavy-metal Follow the Leader, which really pushed them into the mainstream, reaching No. 1 on four different charts. The band—originally out of Bakersfield, Calif., and currently consisting of frontman Jonathan Davis, guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer, bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu and drummer Ray Luzier—continued to raise the bar for metal at the turn of the century, winning awards and inspiring bands like Slipknot and Staind. But just as Korn (above, playing “Freak on a Leash” for BBC Radio 1) changed things 15 years ago by mashing up hip-hop and heavy metal, they, again, combined genres—this time dubstep and metal—on their 10th studio release, 2011’s The Path of Totality (stream it below). Working with the likes of Skrillex, Excision and Noisia, the
band made what Davis calls “future metal.” But the future is now because you can see Korn play The Wellmont Theatre tonight.

Infected Mushroom Is Coming to Terminal 5

September 17th, 2009

Infected Mushroom is a psychedelic-trance and electronic-music band out of Haifa, Israel. Amit Duvadevani (Duvdev) and Erez Eisen (I.Zen) got their start playing Goa trance music, but they’ve consistently explored musical territory beyond psytrance, experimenting with R&B and rock and playing with other musicians at their shows. The duo relocated to L.A. in 2004, and their most recent album, Legend of the Black Shawarma, features Jonathan Davis, of Korn, and Perry Farrell as guest vocalists. (Check out Infected Mushroom and Davis performing “Smashing the Opponent,” above.) The album came out last week, and Infected Musroom—along with Jonathan Davis as a special guest—is playing Terminal 5 on Saturday, October 3rd.
