      There is a good chance without bands Like Korn and Deftones you wouldn’t have Sevendust, Taproot, 40 Below summer and all those bands of that Style, so they deserve much more credit rather than getting shit on by all you Selfish snobs!

        • Korn headlines there own show’s. While the Deftones will ride on a7x’s coattail this summer.
          Instead of having 8 mediocre bands, Chino needs to focus on one project and then maybe, just maybe it would turn out decent.

          Deftones have headlined 95% of the times I’ve seen them. They don’t headline arenas because unlike Korn or A7X, they never took it in the ass for a paycheck.

          That is all you could come up with, “they took it in the ass for a pay check.” Lmao, then by being a support band for a7x are they themselves not taking it in the ass for a pay check.

          Deftones have maintained their artistic integrity throughout the years. Korn and Avenged Sevenfold have not. That’s all I have because that’s all I need. Who they tour with is irrelevant. Last time I checked, Deftones haven’t written a bunch of cheap radio ballads or released a dubstep album.

          Don’t you have some inhalants to mix, asull? Does anyone else picture Charlie from It’s Always Sunny when they read his shit?

          Got to say, linking to that “dubstep” Deftones song to prove the point doesn’t work… As that’s not a Deftones song – it’s a remix of a Deftones song by someone else – unofficially by the looks of it. Korn wrote a dubstep album themselves, Deftones didn’t.

          By that same logic, I can say that Adele made this version of her song Hometown Glory: http://youtu.be/LuvenlRm1VY

          That sing song, by the by, is already better than Path of Totality.

          All that being said, I’m keen to hear what this Korn album sounds like…

          “BlueBalls, Listen to yourself and quit hating on the truth…You see the truth yet you still don’t grasp it.”

          BlueBalls had originally responded to this argument in a thoughtful post stating his facts.

          Well My first Comment above I stated that Taproot were also influenced by Korn, that’s why I mentioned Taproot. And regardless If 7Dust weren’t inspired by Korn they still kind of rode that “Nu Metal” wave when they came on the scene in the late 90s, a scene that Korn very much helped start…Even Members from Mudvayne and Slipknot have been quoted as saying that their bands may not exist without Korn, and Korn was a huge inspiration for Max Cavalera To create Soulfly.

          Adele, Really now come on man that’s all you could come up with. Nobody’s gonna lay down lyrics over brown notes without the original creators permission. Whether its a whole album or not the proof is in the pudding.
          The Deftones are just as guilty as Adele and Korn when it comes to dub step. At least Korn were able to man up to the music the wrote, whilst the Deftones are letting another artist take the heat for remixing shit in to shit.

          Those are very thoughtful facts. Making good music has nothing to do with it? It’s all about who takes it deeper in the ass?

          Thanks for the backup fellas.

          asull, this will be my last response because the list of absurd shit you say grows with each post and honestly, I don’t have the patience to address all of it.

          1: “Taking it in the ass for a paycheck” was a figure of speech. You should have understood it the first time but since you didn’t, see my second response for clarification. The fact that you automatically equated that to Caputo is indicative of your character, but that’s another issue entirely.

          2: There’s nothing cheap about Change or Minerva. Listen to both of those songs, then Hail to the King and Narcissistic Cannibal. When you’re finished, punch yourself in the dick.

          3: Deftones have nothing to do with dubstep. One remix is just as irrelevant as who they tour with. Deftones had a golden opportunity to cash in on the genre they helped create just after it became mainstream. They made White Pony instead.

          Slayer: Pioneers of the dubstep genre lmao!

          Ah, I’m loving this thread. As for my referencing Adele? I don’t have time to trawl every corner of YouTube for remixes. I quite like that High Contrast version of Adele’s song, so it was the first to come into my mind. And I think it’s quite apt in illustrating my point.

          I think it’s the publishers that give the go ahead to make official remixes too, not the artists. Same with when an artist’s songs are used in adverts etc. I’m pretty sure Sigur Ros didn’t say they definitely wanted to be the sound of EVERY sporting even on UK TV between 2009-2011 thanks to Hoppipola.

          I won’t say much for Minerva, as it’s my least favorite Deftones song of all time, but calling “Change” a cheap radio ballad is the height of idiocy. It also completely nullified any potential value in this argument.

          You are Exactly Right! But at the same time Korn have said Time and time again that FNM and Mr. Bungle have been HUGE inspirations. They have all said without those bands they would not exist, those bands and RHCP are really where Munky and Fieldy drew their inspiration from!

        • Side note – I was fortunate enough to just be getting into concerts to see FNM on their Angel Dust tour. It was incredible. They came out across the stage doing jumping jacks to The Final Countdown. The show was amazing. This band that was brand new called Helmet opened the show but only got to play six songs because the crowd broke the barricade.

        Sevendust was formed in 1994, 1 year after Korn. 7D has always been their own band with a distinct style their own – like every band they have their influences, but they are more of the FNM and Living Colour variety and heavy metal, not nu-metal.

          I’m pretty sure if you asked some of the members in 7Dust they would say that korn were at least Some what of an inspiration to them. I asked Taproots Drummer once if Korn were an inspiration to them and he said absolutely, and that the band played their ST CD heavily In the early Stages of writing their first album.

          So because Taproot was influenced by Korn, Sevendust was? Does not compute. Taproot was formed in 1997, aka a year after Life is Peachy and a year prior to Follow the Leader.

          Korn’s debut s/t wasn’t released until Q4 1994, meaning by your timeline Sevendust waited in line at Sam Goody at midnight, bought the album, listened to it once, and then started their band.

          7 Dust weren’t formed until around 1996-1997 though (They were a band called Crawlspace)…and the members of Korn have been in bands together since 1989 maybe even earlier, and according to Fieldy Korn formed in 1992 (You can’t always go by what wikipedia says) But in reality if you wanna go by your way of thinking then Korn formed in 1989 and 7Dust formed in 1994 lol

          Hahahahaha. Oh, A. Mun. What adam linked to.

          And Khan, I’m not aware of any differences that needed to be settled. Head left because his newfound religious views didn’t align with Korn’s message, at least not in his eyes. Head no longer feels that way and I can only speculate as to why. I’m guessing he was running low on cash and if there’s anything Christians love more than feeling morally superior, it’s money.

          Even if there were differences to “settle through the music,” we haven’t heard the music yet. I was basing my comment on the song titles alone. In my mind, I’m picturing J. Davis dangling a check in front of Head’s face. “Hey Head, I wrote a song about the predatory nature of religion and named another one after your shitty band but replaced the word ‘Death’ with ‘Meth.’ You’re going to stfu and play them or you aren’t gettin paid, bitch!”

          It may not be anything like that in reality but considering that I don’t really care, I’m going to go ahead and roll with my initial impression because it’s funnier.

        • I totally agree with that “It’s all about money.” Head doesn’t have to try and justify anything about his religious beliefs to me, or anyone. I thought that was lame as fuck myself. You’re right by the way about it being funny to think about “Mr. Saved” and Jonathan Davis working together on this album.

          I just think he’s moving forward and letting go of the past and looking towards the future where the cash flow is.

        Don’t deny it, you like korn or you wouldn’t have commented, and this new album is gonna have that “Tool” Feel I believe (Of course I’m not comparing the two bands, because NO band can be compared to Tool) If you check out the trailer on youtube It sounds like a Tool inspired song, but we all know Korn are more about simplicity, and they have that “Less is more” style with their guitar playing, but Korn and tool are friends and Maynard and J.D used to hang out, and Munky caught viral meningitis On Lollapolozza 97 and Adam said he would step in For munky on guitar but Korn didn’t wanna do that…

        I’m kind of the same way. They’ve strung me along with a series of mediocre albums. In reality, if you compiled the good stuff from Take A Look In The Mirror and onward, you’d have one, single decent album.

        I lack the ability to get excited about a new album at this point, regardless of line-up. Having said that, I will check this one out of some mis-placed notion of loyalty/ritual. 15 year old me still has me by the balls, I suppose.

      I love the argument about Korn being better than the Deftones going on in here. I’m pretty sure the thumbs up are doing the talking.

      Also, the Deftones are a whole 5 years older than Korn, so whoever said “without Korn there wouldn’t be Deftones”, please, next time know what you’re talking about. Korn, has been for years, a watered down, unimaginative parody of themselves. They plummetted downhill when Follow the Leader came out. The Deftones may have slipped up with Saturday Night Wrist, but Diamond Eyes more than made up for it. Koi No Yokan is almost right on par with it. That said, I’d take Saturday Night Wrist over any Korn album anyday.

      Asull, quit hating on the truth… Deftones have surpassed Korn by far. Deftones are still on WB records after almost 20 years. Korn is on… uh…Prospect Park? Good for them. Maybe in 2 years Kickstarter will be very good to them.

        But the thing is…NO ONE compared these bands, they are brothers, would you like to be compared with your brothers every time you turn around!? Korn and Deftones are two different animals, Musically, and Korn fan knows this and understand that yes Deftones do write Music that is much more intelligent and thought provoking while Korn is more of a “Pop metal band” But that’s what Korn does, and Deftones do their own thing as well, these bands are family who share a LOT of the same fans, so to crucify the one band and love the other band makes no sense, just take what you like from each band and make it your own, because these bands release music for the WORLD to hear, Not just for their die hard fans!

          As someone who enjoys both bands (moreso Korn as I’ve just recently grown to really enjoy Deftones), this makes no goddamn sense at all. The whole brother analogy especially – I’m getting the sense that you’re an only child. Competition is supposed to make things better (think Peyton and Eli), and the whole sharing the same fans thing is largely nonsense. That’s like saying being I enjoy Oh, Sleeper that I should like August Burns Red or The Devil Wears Prada. Do they share a lot of fans? Absolutely, but that doesn’t change my mind that the latter two suck.

          Yeah, they did. When someone said Deftones were better than korn(met with overwhelming thumbs up) you said no. Then asull went on to compare them further favoring korn(with much thumbing down). So there you go, this thread kicked off with a Deftones Korn battle. But like I said, those thumbs don’t lie. Deftones will remain the PRP favorite, whether you two korn fans like it or not.

          I said no, but that was directed to the fact that It was a lame comment, no disrespect to the guy, but I think fans are bright enough to know which band is More talented, In this case The Deftones. But I wasn’t trying to compare the bands, Just saying that these 2 bands came up together and were best friends for awhile! And yes, In the early 90s, Korn and Deftones shared a lot of the same fans, and to this day still do. And I don’t see the need for competition, they are 2 different bands that bring 2 different styles, If they play shows together the crowds will love them both.
