Korn and Sluggo
Comerica Theatre
Thursday, March 1

James Blake would've been in absolute hell watching Korn last night. The waifish English electronica producer, who's loudly decried the overflowing machismo and thuggish aura of Americanized dubstep, would've seen his worst nightmare writ large and lit with high-tech spotlights.

More than 4,000 of the Valley's Korn faithful were in full-on aggro mode as their godhead Jonathan Davis used his H.R. Giger-designed mic to howl the angsty lyrics of "Narcissistic Cannibal," "Get Up," and other songs from its new-fangled dubstep-drenched sound, as heard on their newest LP The Path of Totality. The smoked-filled air was assaulted with unrelenting flurry of knockout punches and whipped with dreadheaded locks when five tracks from the Kornstep-filled album were trotted out during the heart of their set.

It was a manic, certainly, but not nearly as berserk as when the opening wails of "Freak on a Leash" pierced the air at Comerica Theatre. The roar was deafening and the message was resounding: The emperor's of nu-metal's new clothes were good, even great at times, but they weren't classic Korn.

Hence, the reason why the concert was broken into three chapters that had "New Korn" bookended by old-hat hits, rarities, and the biggest blockbuster singles in the band's 17-year-old discography. Davis even dusted off his crowd-pleasing bagpipes.
