Are you ready for the summer’s biggest North American festival? The Mayhem Festival can sometimes be hit or miss when it comes to the lineup, but when they have a good year they definitely have a good year. I’ve seen Behemoth, Nile, Job For A Cowboy, Trivium and other great bands at this show, so I’m always excited to see what will be next the following year. It’s rumored that Korn and Avenged Sevenfold will be on the bill. Meh.
What line up would YOU like to see?
When it comes to trends in extreme music, I feel like I am pretty open to whatever the kids are doing these days. Sure, I’ll listen to your deathcore band although I am not the biggest fan of the genre. Hell, I even listened to the new Korn material, although I knew for a fact it would not be anything I would ever want to remember. Speaking of Korn, if there is one fad that I thought and prayed had passed on, out of the eyes and ears of extreme music fans, it is rap metal. Limp Bizkit, the aforementioned Korn and (hed)P.E. dominated the mid-to-late 90s and even into the early 2000s and they captivated teens and young adults the world over. However, the genre of music that these two bands used as a weapon is one that would come to be ridiculed not long after they fell out of the limelight. Continue reading
I don’t follow Rob Zombie news, but I found myself interested to learn that on Rob‘s new album there was a remix of the song “Dragula” by †††,a band that I have previously professed my love for that features Deftones frontman Chino Moreno. Despite this being a Rob Zombie song, I bought it and listened to it. I dig it. I mean, it doesn’t make me a Zombie fan, but as a fan of †††, I dig it. I tried to upload to song to stream it but got slapped with a Copyright notice, so unfortunately I cannot show you the song. You can, however check out the sample on iTunes here and hopefully the remix surfaces on the Webz soon enough. Below you can see a short clip of Zombie talking about the album Mondo Sex Head and his work with Jonathan Davis of Korn and more.
Mondo Sex Head is available now.
Wow. I know some of you out there love this shit, so I say like what you like but I hate this shit. Kornstep have released a new music video that I literally made it twenty seconds in to. So, sorry I can’t inform you on what happens. Something about a cheesy businessman and a skateboarder colliding around the same time as a dubstep breakdown kicks in? Fuck it. Watch the video and I really hope today gets better musically.
Okay, I fucking hate this right off. Fuck Korn, fuck Skrillex, fuck dubstep, fuck nu-metal. All of it is fucking garbage. I hate the fucking wub-wub bullshit. I mean, seriously? This is what you turn into? A fucking dubstep fuckwad of a band? “Nothing’s good about the hell you put me through,” is a lyric from this song and this basically the way I feel about this fucking song. It’s shit. I know Korn only made the transition to dubstep to make money because that’s what the mallcore kids are into nowadays and that’s what will sell them a million records. Fuck you. I’m sick of hearing about this. Aborted had it right. Fuck dubstep. I’m done. Watch this trash below and then bitch about it in the comments. Some of you trolls will probably call me a faggot because I hate this. Well, I don’t fucking care what you think. Oh, and Korn ripped off that album title from Tombs, a band much better and much more deserving of recognition.

What do you get when you combine the ear-raping (and not in the good way ) nu-metal grooves of Korn and the extremely monotonous wobble bass of dubstep? You get what I like to call Kornstep. A new subgenre of music that will soon be sweeping the nation (god I hope not). I like some electronic music, but dubstep irks me to know end. I remember I liking the genre for a month or two before my eyes (and ears) opened up to the fact that all of the songs sound the same. Really, there is only so much you can do with dubstep tools. I have never liked Korn. Even when I was younger and listened to radio alternative metal, I didn’t like them. So when two things I truly despise come together, it’s obvious that I will loathe it. Korn plans on releasing an ENTIRE album of Kornstep. It will be called The Path of Totality and will be released on December 6th. Just in time for the holidays! The album will feature the nu-metal “stars” accompanied by dubstep artists such as Skrillex, Excision, Datsik, Noisia, Kill the Noise, and 12th Planet. Sounds like a good time.
Well, if you frequent MetalSucks whatsoever, I’m sure you heard the snippet of a new Korn song a few days ago. Well, we now have a full track and it is not only as bad as I expected, it’s worse. I remember loving Korn when I was younger and now I can’t stand to listen to them. This track is the bastard child of Marilyn Manson and Slipknot. There is absolutely no redeeming qualities in this whatsoever. But you know what? Some of you might actually like this, so I won’t waste anymore of your time. Here is the new Korny track, “Get Up” (Featuring Skrillex): [Continue Reading]
Today’s bullshit rambling:
This morning, I was taken back to my early teens. I stood at my work place with Pandora radio on, and on comes Disturbed’s “Shout 2000,” which I hadn’t heard or thought about for years. Next song on Pandora was System of a Down’s “Deer Dance” and then Korn’s “ADIDAS.” Why did this affect me so? Because these are three of the bands that brought me into the world of heavy music. It was from there that I began to explore more extreme types of metal. I started looking into the bands that influenced Jonathan Davis and Corey Taylor, and what I found was heavier than anything I could imagine (I was 12) and I kept going further and further until one day I came across something that would change my life: Ace Ventura. That move introduced me to Cannibal Corpse and I will forever be grateful to Jim Carrey. So, I know that these bands are pretty much sell-outs now. And, like I said, some of this shit I haven’t heard in years, but it was nice to go back and remember what got you where you are today.
Oh yeah, and then a Slipknot song off of their last album came on and ruined my fucking mood.
