Korn: Dubstep is “the newmetal”

According to Korn frontman Jonathan Davis dubstep is “the future; it’s the new hip-hop, it’s the new metal, it’s the new everything.”

In an interview with MTV Hive Davis claims that “Metal shows are all hate, like, “I’m going to fuck you up in the mosh pit.” Electronic shows are all peace and love. They rage harder than metal fans. I played a show in New York and then watched [big Day Out Bolier room headliner] Nero who sold out Webster Hall. That crowd went ten times harder than any metal crowd I’ve seen in my life.”

“I watched the show from the stage and it was like watching an old Gary Numan show. The way the whole production was set up. It was just so cool. Kids are picking up on it now because they’ve never seen anything like that before. I’m forty years old, I saw Gary Numan do the ‘80s and all the other acts from back then. How cool music was back then. This felt fresh and cool like the ‘80s. There are so many different sub-genres and shit going on.”

Korn’s dubstep album The Path of Totality is due out next month and features the typically ridiculous song including Chaos Lives In Everything, Narcissistic Cannibal and Burn The Obedient.

Davis also laughed off a question about the possibility of Glee using Korn songs in his chat with MTV Hive, taking a very different stance to Dave Grohl, Slash and the Kings of Leon – “If someone wants to use one of our songs and do it well then I don’t care. People take themselves way too fucking seriously, I swear to god.”

This quote is the future of mocking Korn.

Yeah let's ignore The Smiths, The Cure, Slayer, R.E.M., Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Minor Threat, U2, Crowded House, Prince, the Pixies, Iron Maiden...

Sorry, I can't keep that up.

Dude has played bagpipes on every Korn record. He's obsessed. It's kind of hilarious.

Really?! Do they play a central role at some point or is it just some small thing in the background? (I've never paid any attention to Korn and for good reason)

Bagpipes are Scotland's greatest contribution to music. Bagpipes and The Proclaimers.

I think the Irish are just happy to not be Scottish. We can let them have their bagpipes and heroin.

I can't believe that with so much other electronic music today, dubstep is getting all that popularity. :confused: Hopefully those kids will grow out of it, and not make it a big thing for decades to come.

“People are going to be pissed about this record. That’s made me even more excited about it. I don’t give a flying fuck what people think. We can’t win with Korn fans – some are so stuck in 1994. Everybody calls us the godfathers of nu-metal and I’m fucking tired of that. We don’t want to join the nostalgia circuit.”

"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."
