March 5, 2014 is a very special date for me and for most people who lived on the mid-90’s which is my college years. Korn and White Zombie were the main feature on MTV’s Headbangers Ball and on Beavis and Butthead. Maybe most of younger ones doesn’t know the significance of Korn and White Zombie in the scene, they revolutionized (or modernized) Metal and brought Metal to the mainstream. Some might think this was a wrong move from them ‘coz these two juggernauts of Nu Metal have a very strong underground fan base before they became “Rock Stars”.
I guess they don’t need much exposure (or maybe just a few) just one song from the radio and you’ll ask yourself “What the f**k is this music? (then a pause) It’s f**king awesome!!! Yeah it sound different from the usual metal we used to hear. It’s catchy but at the same time it’s brutal and heavy so what is it? Then the so-called authority of music we “Media” labeled it Nu Metal. We’ll I can say that Korn sounds like Serial-core if you’ll ask me ‘coz most of the message and lyrics is about an abuse child getting back on the perpetrator and most abused children were likely to become serial killers. If you’ll make a movie about Korn it’s more like a Revenge Movie. It feels heavy and unbearable but in the end you’ll feel awesome. Same feeling when you’re watching Dexter the TV series. I Still remember my college Journal with cut-outs from magazines and the main cover is Korn and at the bottom is Soundgarden and Alice in Chains and on the spine is Sharon Stone at her younger years (Hehe). This is getting long, hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking snaps of them.
