English:

To be honest, we already had given up Korn. Their previous releases sounded so poor and the lack of good songs, nice riffs and decent material was so painful that we did not put the latest Korn release in our cd player with high expectations.

But hell, what happened? Back are the catchy riffs, the aggressive and powerful vocals and the dry, clean sound. ‘Remember Who You Are’ immediately struck us by surprise. The album is packed with great songs, quality riffs and memorable hooks. Jonathan Davis is in great shape. Did his voice ever sound more powerful? Back is the slabby and groovy bass playing by Fieldy Arzivu. Munky’s guitar sounds awesome and ‘new comer’ Ray Luzier drums his head off. But the biggest surprise is the glorious come back of producer Ross Robinson. His part in creating the old Korn sound cannot be underestimated. Clean, to the point, dry and sharp as a needle.

‘Remember Who You Are’ is a glorious return by a band that lost track for far too long. With ‘Remember Who You Are’ Korn delivers a memorable album. Welcome back guys.



Nederlands:

Als we heel eerlijk zijn, hadden we deze band opgegeven na hun meest recente albums. Dachten we niet dat de typische Korn sound verdwenen was? In de plaats van sterke songs vonden we enkel oeverloos gejammer en gehuil op hun vorige cd’s. Met weinig hoge verwachtingen legden we dan ook de nieuwe worp ‘Remember Who You Are’ in onze speler.

En wat bleek? De typische Korn elementen die de band zo sterk maakten tijdens hun eerste albums zijn weer helemaal terug. En hoe? Jonathan Davis zong nooit zo sterk, krachtig, overtuigend en met zoveel emotie dan op dit album. De bass van Fieldy Arvizu klinkt opnieuw lekker ‘slabby’. Munky’s gitaar ‘rift’ als nooit tevoren en de definitieve inlijving van Ray Luzier als vaste drummer is een schot in de roos. Maar de grootste meesterzet zit hem in het aantrekken van ‘good old’ Ross Robinson als knoppendraaier. Zijn heerlijk droge productie geeft alle ruimte om opnieuw die heerlijke oude Korn Sound uit je speakers te laten spatten.

Met ‘Remember Who You Are’ keert Korn terug naar hun roots en levert de band opnieuw een album ‘grand cru’ af. En dat was verdorie lang geleden. Met Korn III haalt Roadrunner een verloren gewaand schaap in hun rangen. Sterk album. Glorieuze terugkeer.
