Somehow, we never saw Korn growing into old age. Not that we wish them any specific harm, but we just could never picture the band members playing "Blind" while pushing 40. Unlike spirit brothers Limp Bizkit, Korn never went away, but just kept retooling its sound after events that would have derailed a lot of other bands. After losing drummer David Silveria and bassist Brian "Head" Welch in the same year to disinterest and Jesus Christ, respectively, the band was pared down to its three core members but never lost a step in its sound. Instead, the Bakersfield-spawned group reclaimed the aggression of its late-'90s heyday and became more grizzled than ever. A new album, Korn III: Remember Who You Are, should be in stores by July, and is said to be the hardest of Korn's career.
