LOVE AND DEATH

BETWEEN HERE AND LOST

2013

 

A SOUND LIKE CLASSIC KORN WITH SOME DEVO?

 

Brian ‘Head’ Welch is of course best known as the drummer for Nu-Metallers Korn, this is his new Project and one he’s careful to state is also his primary concern.

 


The good news for Korn fans is that this pretty much to my ears sound like vintage Korn, and by that I mean the menace and power of the first few albums. Opener ‘The Abandoning’ is all the balled up rage you might expect and Brian’s voice holds out very well as an introduction to the album it’s perfect. What you won’t expect is what comes next a simply stunning cover of Devo’s ‘Whip It’ that is all light and shade and aggression. Amazing.

 


The rest of the album in reality is almost as impressive as the opening salvo: great vocals, stripped back sounds, plenty of space, amazing guitar and great songs. And you can’t ask for much more than that can you?
