Korn: 'Kill Mercy Within' Video
Fans wondering how Korn might go about pulling off performing tracks from their latest experimental record "The Path Of Totality" in the live arena need wonder no more. The Bakersfield based quartet has released a live video for the track "Kill Mercy Within" from the new album through the NME website. The album, which is released today, sees the band experimenting with dubstep and electronic sounds and collaborating with DJ Skrillex, Noisia, Downlink and Excision. While the move might be greeted with apathy by some of the fans of Korn's previous output, frontman Jonathan Davis maintains that the band has always embodied some of the ideals of dubstep. In an interview with Billboard, he offered the following comment: "We were dubstep before there was dubstep. Tempos at 140 with half-time drums, huge bassed-out riffs. We used to bring out 120 subwoofers and line them across the whole front of the stage, 60 subs per side. We were all about the bass... It's really cool to see glow sticks at the show, to see dance music culture infiltrating and becoming one with the metal community. At the last show, there was one mosh pit where they were moshing, and another with kids doing glow stick tricks. They were taking turns and shit. I think we've opened up a new style that both sides are happy with." In spite of the apparent solidarity between the band and some fans, though, the singer has spoken with Kerrang! magazine recently about the band's continuing outsider status: "I always felt Korn was the black sheep of the metal community because we didn't fit in anywhere. When I did the first record I was inventing a new genre of music then. It's the same sh-t now. I haven't been this excited in years." The video can be viewed below:
