No Longer Just A Fan Of The Music

Wed, Feb 26, 2014 at 12:37 AM By: ZiggyB

Last night when I signed up for this page I had no clue that it would take me on a new journey to understanding the Band & Music on such a different level than what I had before. Before I loved the music's transcending melodious highs and lows of the Fierce & Edgy sounds that KORN ONLY produces in each & every track on their cd s... I thought to myself you know every word to about every song in every sequence that they appear on the track lists of their cd s .... Why do you know so little about the people and the men in the band...? Thus began my new pet project . Not only am I thrilled and amazed .. even bewildered by the level of their abilities to take you on a journey through your mind when listening to the lyrics and sounds pumping in your brain , I have blown several ear-buds since the new Album has come out. I think it is an amazing collaboration of all of them collectively as a band ! They by far are the BEST BAND EVER in my opinion in our lifetime. But back to the point I have been trying to make.... I am learning the MEN behind the music and lyrical magicity of their spinning twists that embed in your cranial lobe to absorb deep inside your soul ...
I thought I would start with the front man Johnathan Davis... I can say what interesting reading ... Most intriguing research I have done so far ! I keep finishing one piece going to the next link to learn even more about this complex and very Intelligent Man ! I also have come to understand why it is that they have become my favorite band. I identify on so many levels of the adversities that JD has gone to get to where he is and who he is today. What doesn't break us makes us stronger is definitely the case when it comes to Johnathan Davis. Really actually they all have amazing melons !
I didn't think I could love Korn anymore than I do now....but I find myself falling in love with the music all over again and on a deeper level of understanding behind the lyrics they sing about . They challenge us as listeners to find our own meanings but as well theirs. I already got chills from many of their songs ... Now they have turned to Goosebumps ! I am looking forward to many years of their music filling my life. For it has brought me through the hardest times of my life. For that I must THANK YOU Guys !
So THANK YOU !!!! From No Longer Just A Fan Of The Music !

    I have got to pimp one of my favorite KoRn pieces of entertainment art...you can get Deuce on DVD and it includes Who Then Now as a bonus feature. Here is a link of it off ebay for about 5 bucks shipping included. It was the least expensive one I could find and it is worth every penny and SO much more.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Korn-Deuce-R-2002-Used-Digital-Video-Disc-/380522305522?pt=US_DVD_HD_DVD_Blu_ray&hash=item5898e597f2

    You are a die hard KoRn fan already, and this is ESSENTIAL KoRn stuff. I know how hard it can be to find all the parts on youtube, so do yourself a huge favor and bring this DVD into your life, you will never regret it or forget it!

    @ Twisted Transistor , Fist off I love your handle name... I've been dubbed that by my friends and foes alike... Lol ~ Long story .. Someday I will explain that one. Anyways... I totally feel you, Yes , it is a healthy addiction.. Music is the best form of therapy out there. They honestly in my belief saved my life with their amazing music... along with my desire to protect my children. I am still in a full battle for my son's freedom & life from a very messed up person. So I am yet once again looking to the music for it takes me away from all the noise I have to hear all day . Sometimes the music keeps me from crumbling apart and thinking... God how I hate thinking ! I don't need to be doing that for very long...it is dangerous at times, other times it is just to overwhelming.... So Korn is my tool for survival so to speak . I often listen to them for anywhere to 4 to 10 hours depending on how bad the day was. Plus it helps me stay productive and on the task that will be at hand at the time. Yes ! I feel the love they have for their craft and it is inspiring...

    @SaFlove, Hey !
    Yes, the songs... The lyrics... They reach down deep inside me on a lot of their songs. The goosebumps just happen when I listen to Korn .. . They just have this way with their music that pulls me in and I go into my own world ...Outside of all my worries, fears, etc... Korn music becomes my words when I cannot find them. So in my silence I find solace in the music. Johnathan Davis's voice becomes mine & the band becomes my Army ... I hope that explains it to you...

    Most definitely an ongoing journey, one that you can never get enough of. I remember when I began researching koRn, it was like they were my addiction (healthy one for a change). These days my love is so intense for them it is a beautiful thing :).

    Hey Faust , Thanks for the recommendation ... I watched all parts up to pt. 5 ... I didn't seem to be able to find anymore , but I absolutely love it ! You were so correct about the goosebumps ! How cool that they have this recorded documentary .... I am sure it is something they are glad they did. They are all so amazingly talented ! I loved seeing them with their babies & in their family element too. Makes them more real to me.... Part 2 of 2 I really liked that video too. Every time I hear Blind it is instant chills. As I see they get them too... Lol , How could you not? They are Brilliant ! They deserve all the success & love that we as fans have for them, they will never cease to amaze me ! The bagpipe part Goosebumps ! I will check out Deuce next. This is going to be one journey I will never regret starting !

    Man, ZiggyB. I love how into KoRn you are getting! If you really want to learn more about them, I highly recommend you check out Who Then, Now. I mean if you have not watched it already. It is such a great, but short documentary about KoRn and there is another one called Deuce. They are both really great, but Who Then, Now really shows you what the boys from Bako were like when they first were getting ready to conquer the world.

    Here is a clip, prepare for CHILLS, ZiggyB....chills.
