Slipknot had such an enjoyable time playing 2013's Ozzfest in Japan that they took a page out of the book and relocated Knotfest to Japan for 2014. The second staging of the Slipknot-organized event will take place Nov. 15 and 16 at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Tokyo and the first two acts joining Slipknot have been revealed.
Seven-string pioneers Korn took everyone by surprise when they released their self-titled debut album back in 1994. The band rode the crest of a tidal wave of new music heavier than anything before them. Singer Jonathan Davis' tense, rage-drenched vocals were exactly what millions of kids were looking for in the age of grunge. Since then, they've continued to put out albums and evolve their sound with each one.
Yesterday we reported the very sad news that former Korn touring guitarist Shane Gibson passed away at the age of 35. Gibson had taken over live guitar duties for the band from 2007 to 2010 following Brian 'Head' Welch's exit from the group.
Congrats to Korn, who saved their best for last en route to joining the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. The band's song 'Spike in My Veins' earned its most decisive victory in its final matchup against Escape the Fate's 'One for the Money' to become the latest Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame inductee.
Korn are riding a career upswing at the moment, due in part to the success of 'The Paradigm Shift' album. The news just keeps getting better for the band, as they're set to appear as co-headliners of this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.
Korn guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch is getting ready to pen his latest book. The memoir, which will be the fourth book of Welch's personal bibliography, will focus on the eight years he was away from Korn -- a period of time Welch calls his "wilderness years."
Korn have bested four prior opponents with their current single 'Spike in My Veins,' but do they have what it takes to complete their run to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame? The hard-rocking track has been a favorite of fans so far, but they advanced with the narrowest of escapes over Avenged Sevenfold's 'Shepherd of Fire.'
