Korn Celebrating Studio Debut With Vegas Show

Korn

It’s been 20 years since Korn released its first record, and it’s been downhill ever since, am I right? Rumor has it the band will be playing some 20th anniversary gigs to celebrate the advent of Korn. The first of those shows seems booked.

Slayer, Exodus, Slipknot Playing Carolina Rebellion

Slayer

The lineup for the fifth annual Carolina Rebellion has been announced, and for a fifth straight year, I am unimpressed and uninspired to make the trek to North Carolina.

Slipknot To Tour Europe

Slipknot

Slipknot have announced they will be crossing the pond with their “Prepare For Hell” tour. Yup. That means Slipknot and possibly Korn (plus a band we do not acknowledge on this site any more) will be coming for you, Europe. We know Korn and that other band will be playing the U.K. dates — but […]

David Silveria Apologizes For Not Being In Korn Anymore

Korn

This is fucking weird. Just when you thought David Silveria actually gave no fucks about being in Korn anymore (something I nearly respected the dude for), he’s gone and apologized to fans for not being in the nu-metal act anymore. Silveria thanked the band’s fans on the 20th anniversary of the release of the group’s […]
