Profile of the performer Korn:
Korn is a Grammy Award winning Metal band from Bakersfield, California, and are often credited with creating and popularizing the nu metal genre.
Korn formed after the group [a=L.A.P.D. (4)] folded. L.A.P.D. constisted of [a=Reginald Arvizu], [a=James Shaffer], and [a=David Silveria] and singer [a=Richard Morill].
Morill left because of drug addictions and the remaining 3 members along with [a=Brian Welch], who was a close friend of the band began searching for a new singer. They found that singer in 1993 when seeing the frontman of the band “Sexart”, [a=Jonathan Davis], perform. Davis joined the band and the band was renamed Creep and shortly after “Korn”.
In 1993 they released their first demo “Neidermeyer's Mind” with producer [a=Ross Robinson], who would eventually also produce the first 2 albums. The song “Blind” had become a trademark in the Korn performances, rarely not being in the setlist. The song (which was released on their first demo and first album) was originally written by Davis with Sexart, but was revived with new lyrics by Korn.
Musically, Korn tracks mix both heavy metal and hip-hop. Korn toured incessantly to promote their first album. With no radio play or MTV, they relied solely on their intensive live shows which created a large cult following of dedicated fans.
Three of the band members are often credited by their nicknames. "Head" (Welch), "Fieldy" (Arvizu) and "Munky" (Shaffer).
Korn had a constant formation for 12 years until 2005, when guitarist Welch left Korn after his decision to rededicate his life to Jesus Christ and his daughter. In 2006 drummer Silveria would follow, stating he stept out of the band to further pursue his entrepreneurial ventures and to be with his family. Korn went on as a 3-piece and had a back-up band for touring until 2009. In 2009 drummer [a=Ray Luzier] became the first new member of Korn since it’s formation in 1993, after being in the back-up band for a while. In may 2013 Welch rejoined Korn.
In 2012 Korn released an experimental album “The Path Of Totality” mixing metal with dubstep. This album has won them the “Revolver Golden Gods Awards” award for best album of the year.
