The first full-length album by the legendary American Post-Grunge/Nu-Metal band.
One of the best-selling Nu-Metal bands on the planet!
With little publicity, radio play, or MTV exposure, Korn took their eponymous 1994 debut to Platinum status! Like all unexpected successes, it's easier to understand its popularity in retrospect. Although they disdain the "Metal" label, there's no question that Korn are among the vanguard of Post-Grunge/Alt-Metal outfits. Borrowing from Jane's Addiction, Rage Against the Machine, Pantera, Helmet, Faith No More, Anthrax, Public Enemy, and N.W.A, Korn developed a testosterone-fueled, ultra-aggressive Metal-Rap hybrid. They're relentless, both in their musical attack and in lead singer Jonathan Davis' bleak, violent lyrics. Tales of abuse and alienation run rampant throughout the record. It's often disturbing and, to some ears, even offensive, but their music can have a cathartic effect that makes up for their vulgarity and questionable lapses in taste. It's a powerful sound and one that actually builds on the Funk-Metal innovations of the late '80s/early '90s!
"Shoots And Ladders" was nominated for a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance!!
