Title: “Rotting In Vain” (Single)
Label: Roadrunner Records
Release Date: 7/22/2016
Truth be told, Korn was never one of “My Bands” in terms of what I was listening to when they first came on the scene and while some of my circle were absolute diehards I remained more of a casual listener who was willing to enjoy their offerings while these same friends dealt with what I was enjoying in the sonic sense. I admit this because it’s not a slight at all as much as a statement about it being impossible to listen to everything but with that said I was sure glad I decided to listen to the new single from the bands forthcoming album “The Serenity Of Suffering”. This single came out a few short days ago and man is it something else.
For the casual fans like myself, there is just something overpowering about this number and I think that more of my “kind” might be flocking to the record store (if there are any left in your region) to purchase the album when it comes out in October of this year based on this tune. The song is loaded with a crushing groove and I found the riff making me bang my head right off the bat. We even get some of Davis’ scat vocals and it just makes the track work out all the better. Very, very accessible in my humble opinion. If the rest of the new album is like this tune I think I might have a new band to add to my list of stuff I am into. You ardent admirers will make room for the new people right? I’ll add in that I saw them twice in concert and loved them despite my newbie status. Think about it and let’s hope for another single before October. Order the digital tune right below via Amazon.com
