System of a Down vs. Korn – 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, Round 1
There is such a thing as too much adrenaline pumping and this 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl pairing will definitely hype you up. We’ve got the frenetic and somewhat schizophrenic System of a Down favorite ‘Psycho’ squaring off against Korn‘s monstrous rocker ‘Freak on a Leash.’
In this fast-paced, need-it-now world there’s probably no shortage of football players that can identify with the “psycho, groupie, cocaine, crazy” world that Serj Tankian sings about in the band’s ‘Toxicity’ album favorite ‘Psycho.’ Regardless of the lyrical content, the speedy rocker has plenty of energy to spare.
The other side of this battle is Korn’s ‘Freak on a Leash,’ a monstrous track about someone ready to unleash the demon inside. There’s just something about the spirit of competition that changes people, and that “freak” can get unleashed as soon as the whistle blows.
