Korn’s Jonathan Davis was excluded from the recent “Mayhem Fest” cover of Revolver, and there’s a reason for that.
As suspected, the rag mag has a beef with Korn, because the band bailed twice on playing their shameful Golden Gods Awards.
Let us not forget, though, that Revolver named Korn’s dubstep record The Path of Totality the album of the year in 2011 — a year that saw the release of new albums by bands like Abysmal Dawn, Crowbar, Amon Amarth, Obscura, Between The Buried and Me, Anaal Nathrakh, Tombs, In Flames, Autopsy, The Devin Townsend Project, The Black Dahlia Murder, Lock Up, Decapitated, Toxic Holocaust, All Pigs Must Die, Chimaira, Revocation, and Opeth, to name a few.
This month’s mag’s index says the following, in an obvious reference to Korn:
“Number of rock and metal icons who were booked to jam with performing bands at the Golden Gods this year but various reasons (mostly, the groups they were supposed to jam with flaking out, pussing out, or just being fucking stupid) did not ultimately play at the show: 6—at least
“Number of bands that have cancelled one performance at the Golden Gods, let alone two performances: 1
“Likelihood that said band will ever appear on the cover of Revolver again: 0”
Hit ‘em where it hurts, Revolver.
Surely, never featuring Korn on the cover of your piece of shit publication will hurt the band in a myriad of ways — they’ll regret the day they ever did you wrong, Revolver staff.
Fucking lame, chauvinistic assholes that all of you are.
