(no subject)

i have a really delusional head cold. i feel like i'm tripping or something, so forgive me if this makes no sense. have you ever listened to a song right before you fall asleep? i did that with nine inch nails' new cd Still. i listen to eash song and my brain makes up these movies in my head. they are really cool, and really scary at the same time. that song had a really good movie to it. but i cant remember it. i'm sick.

Korn's Fieldy Says His Solo Debut Is No Bum Rap...


You might assume the first solo album by Korn's bassist would brim with the low-end dirges and quaking rhythms that have come to be the n� metal band's signature. You'd assume wrong.

For Rock N Roll Gangster, Fieldy saved the eerie, minor-chord stuff for Korn's fifth album, which is expected to surface this summer, and instead lets the good times � or, more accurately, high times � roll. Much of the album, which was released Tuesday, expounds the stocky bassist's penchant for a certain herb that's rarely used in culinary creations. And despite the title, there's hardly any rock to be found here. Instead, Fieldy � who said that both he personally and Korn collectively have been influenced by hip-hop � has entered the solo scene with a straight-up rap record.

"I called it Rock N Roll Gangster because of [the role] I play in Korn," he said. "I wear the pendants and bandanas and cornrows in my hair � I don't know, I just like the style, the lifestyle. But I'm in a rock band, I'm not a gangster. I'm a rock-and-roll gangster, but [it's] a hip-hop album. If you think you're going to get a rock album, you're not going to get a rock album."


I just don't know what to say about this.. other than *cough* crap *cough*...
If his rap album is 'No Bum' why does he look like one in his pic?

Linkin Park, Manson, Disturbed Members 'Damned' By Korn's Davis...


Call them the Jonathan Davis All-Stars.

Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park's Chester Bennington, Disturbed's David Draiman, Orgy's Jay Gordon and Static-X's Wayne Static were selected by the Korn frontman and Warner Bros./Reprise chairman Tom Whalley to sing Davis' songs for the upcoming "Queen of the Damned" soundtrack, according to a Warner Bros. spokesperson.

While Davis co-wrote and recorded the five tracks that will be heard in the vampire flick, his record label contract prohibits his voice from appearing on the soundtrack, which will be released just before the next Korn album.


This looks like a wicked soundtrack...
I will not call them the "Jonathan Davis All-Stars" because they are just a bunch of wicked bands together on a soundtrack!
