Korn, ‘Korn III: Remember Who You Are’ (Roadrunner)

Mikael Wood // July 7, 2010

Following a synthed-up self-titled album and one they made with Avril Lavigne producers the Matrix, Korn go back to nü-metal basics on the aptly titled Remember Who You Are, which was produced by rap-rock OG Ross Robinson. Remarkably, a decade and a half of weird-kid worship hasn’t brightened frontman Jonathan Davis’ outlook; “I always get fucked in the end!” he howls rather definitively in “Fear Is a Place to Live.” His persistent self-flagellation could do with more hooks, but Remember packs pain by the pound.
