"Serenity of Suffering is heavier than Paradigm Shift — and possibly their heaviest album ever thanks to ridiculously downtuned riffs like 'A Different World' and 'When You're Not There.'" — Rolling Stone
Twelve albums into a 23-year career, alt-metal bludgeoneers Korn have had more phases than even some fans might remember: dissonance-funk weirdos, unlikely disco-metal boy band, gloom-crunge goths, Matrix-produced noise-dance group, experimental dubstep trailblazers and, at one point, the world's worst Cameo cover band, writes Rolling Stone.
With 2013's The Paradigm Shift and this year's follow-up The Serenity of Suffering, Korn in 2016 has settled into an uncomfortable comfort zone somewhere between their 1999 and their 2004, the era when "nu-metal" blew up and fizzled and Korn was making music as ugly and imposing as they wanted.
With its dystopian hook and 10-ton impact, "Insane" is the perfect gateway to this new recharged album offering from nu-metal's most influential band. Anyone who thinks fame and fortune have mollified Korn needs to hear "Rotting In Vain," a raging release of Jonathan Davis' innermost animosities. Slipknot's Corey Taylor shows up for the outstanding "A Different World," but the band saves "Please Come For Me" — its fiercest, most economical attack — for last.
