Review : Korn - Untitled
JamNobody wants to live on a steady diet of KoRn -- not even some members of the band, it seems.
More than a decade after creepmeister Jonathan Davis and this California outfit exploded onto the scene with a fierce fusion of hip-hop, goth and nu-metal, they appear to be imploding.
