KORN have released a music video for “You’ll Never Find Me,” the most recent single from their forthcoming album, The Nothing, which will be released on September 13 via Roadrunner Records. The video was directed by Korn and Andzej Gavriss and can be viewed above.
Korn will forever be linked with their spearheading of the so-called “nu metal” movement, a more accessible variation of metal that emphasized hooks and melodies over imposingly dense arrangements or screamed, unintelligible vocals. The band formed in the early part of the 1990s in Bakersfield, California, and originally consisted of five members: singer Jonathan Davis, bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer, drummer David Silveria, and guitarist Brian “Head” Welch.
In 1994, the band released their self-titled debut. Korn found Davis expressing his alienation in often-upsetting terms, incorporating low groans and demonic recitations of childhood nursery rhymes to suggest a society’s loss of innocence. His words were matched by the band’s metallic guitar textures, although on a track like “Shoots and Ladders,” Korn also wielded unconventional instruments (such as bagpipes) to unsettling effect. While there was unquestionably an immaturity in the group’s approach to their disturbing messages, Korn set into motion the sound and themes the band would refine during their career.
