I honestly hope. that Korn III - remember who we are isnt the album title... i like remember who we are.. but korn III is like well there is only 3 orginals left soo thats what we are called now lol...

i think with ross on the album i have no doubt it will be good... but change this Korn III sh** seriously.

Like the move as well, as much as ross coming back as producer.....but we will see, the last 3 lps overall have gone from bad to worse, so i dont wanna get my hopes up....seems like there were a couple good songs on those lps, they get your hopes up with a new single that sounds good, then the album drops and its an overall disapointment....fingers crossed

It's called "KoRn III" because it's the 3rd KoRn album they have done with Ross Robinson.

Well...

That's what i've heard anyway.

Korn III sort of sounds like a rip off of Soulfly. the tracks Soulfy II III etc. on each album.

Having a few self titled albums isn't new, Led Zeppelin had four. It's probably called Korn III because the last one was untitled and so was the first. Why they couldn't have just called it Remember Who You Are is beyond me though.

Because it would be too reminiscent of "The Lion King."

You mean Victory Records didn't pick them up? I'm surprised considering they signed nu-metal crap like Otep and Ill Nino.

its prob called III because either there is only 3 of the 5 original members left, or (and this is what i assume) its the 3rd cd that Ross Robinson has produced for KORN following the classic self titled & Life is Peachy.

Yes, I can REALLY see how so many bands have fallen flat on their faces by signing with Roadrunner...cuz we all know the label makes the band, right?...

^ I don't know if you were being sarcastic but I'd say that's all 100% true (well, maybe not the "label makes the band" is not 100% the case, but into that direction, absolutely)

^While I do agree with you on some bands Roadrunner supports, I just think it's a bit over exaggerated. There are some great bands on Roadrunner, and it's not like Korn is gonna turn into the next Nickelback by signing with them. Don't take the sarcasm personally, I'm just not a morning person.

^ nah, mate. I rarely take things personally, even less so here.
It's just that I don't understand what Roadrunner is doing. Howcome so many great bands have had a Very short relationship with them. I don't get it. And we're not talking about newcomers. Zakk's Black Label Society is a perfect example.

seeing how korn is already terribly famous they could probably just sell their songs on the internet and make more money than they would with roadrunner, lord knows they have the capital to fund it. They wouldnt have to worry about paying a label back, which at this point they probably dont anyways, and i guess roadrunner has quite a distribution network, but I've wondered for a while how it would go if a big band used Itunes and other internet functions to "be their own label". i think i might have read metallica was thinking about doing that somewhere...

i personally think korn blows, but seeing as how when i was 7 years old i was banging my head to blind and the nursery rhymes song i probably wouldn't be the metal head i am if it wasn't for them. so i hope they do well in this deal and get alot of kids to convert from rap or "radio" rock even though they have their hands in both of those camps, its better than having another dumb kid waving a nickleback flag

^LA totally feel you on the 7 year old take with korn....even though their last 3lps were crap, i always will show loyalty for them because they were the 1 band that directed me towards metal in general.....i dont listen to nu metal anymore but ill be a korn fan just on that alone til i croak...
Btw LA you might wanna think about moving to california next year....if we pass this marijuana prop in the november election, it ll be an all you can blaze buffet out here in cali...with a few stipulations but you wont need a DRs note.....fyi to all you blazers out there as well....
Korn's career is kinda on a downward tilt as we speak, so why not sign with roadrunner? Wont hurt em at all..if they were still rolling like they were in the 90s, then i could see the RR concerns....
