One of the most influential bands of our life is the incomparable Korn. Korn is the reluctant pioneer of the genre nu-metal and creates music, unlike anyone before them. They have sold over 30 million albums worldwide and remains one of the most popular bands on the music scene.
Korn was formed in 1993 from the remains of the band L.A.P.D. Three members of the group, Reginald Arvizu, James Shaffer, and David Silveria added guitarist Brian Welch.
From there, they recruited singer Johnathan Davis after seeing his performance in the band. It was then that Korn began creating and recording original music for the first time.
They recorded a demo called Mind Neidermeyer who has not collected a lot of initial interest. Due to the climate of the music scene at the time, the grunge rock was at the forefront of the minds of most music executives.
However, a visionary leader named Paul Pontius could see the talent above all else. He heard them in a nightclub show and signed them immediately.
It was then that they came out with their first album and single titled “Blind”. Of all the Korn merch is there, it is perhaps the unedited version and the rawest of the band.
This was their first single to hit radio. Despite the minor success of the song, the group increased the most following its incredible live performances. Even if they had not much radio play or music video successfully, their album Life Is Peachy debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
