“MTV Unplugged” by Korn

Artist: Korn
Title: “Unplugged”
Label: Virgin Records
Release Date: 3/6/2007
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 3.5/5

If you have listened to Korn in the past then you know full well the level of angst-ridden Nu Metal that they are capable of. Now captured in the ever-popular unplugged format that MTV launched we find the band changing things up a little bit as they present an entirely different sound to their established tunes. I admit that I was unsure how this would actually work because Korn music is on the aggressive and angry side for the most part. However with the unplugged versions we find singer Jonathan Davis keeping himself a little more sedate and calmer than many of his fans ever would expect him. His pitch does raise up as needed for the choruses of songs like “Falling Away From Me” and “Freak On A Leash” of course but primarily he keeps his vocals very understated. As far as concerts like this go there are some surprises to be found for the listener and the first such instance comes in the presence of Amy Lee, lead singer of Evanescence, who helps out with “FOAL”. I don’t know how she became involved in this performance and wondered if it was primarily because of her popularity with her main band as opposed to any other reason. She does add some nice high notes to the track just the same. Can an Evanescence Unplugged be far behind I am left wondering. The next surprise is their cover of the Radiohead classic “Creep” which Davis dedicates to all the kids and adults who had ever been picked on in life. They do a good job of it but I always prefer the original to any other presentation when it comes to this song as no one seems to capture it as good as Radiohead did.

Evanescence @ Hammerstein Ballroom (10/9/2006)

Logo - Evanescence

Artist: Evanescence
Venue: Hammerstein Ballroom (New York, NY)
Opener: Revelation Theory
Date: 10/9/2006
Label: Wind-Up Records

Much to the delighted screams of thousands of fans the one and only Evanescence has returned to New York City for a sold out performance at The Hammerstein Ballroom. No, you are not misreading things as Evanescence was finally back and it was time for everyone to get a little Gothic. Judging by the attending audience this would be entirely possible this evening for everywhere you looked where younger versions of Amy Lee. Evanescence has a mixed audience in terms of age range and tonight it seemed as though a lot of parents were going to see what their kids listened to first hand by choosing not to wait outside but instead would try their hand inside the venue amidst the fans en masse. I think it is great when the folks make an effort to see what kind of music the kids listen to, whether they understand or like it or not. Opening the show was Revelation Theory who I walked in on the last song or three of. They were not doing much for me at that late stage but they did do an impressive rendition of “Hunger Strike” the popular tune by Temple Of The Dog.
