Korn Claim To Be “Dubstep Before There Was Dubstep”

    Some folks jumped on the Korn hate-wagon in late September when it was revealed that the band was releasing a dubstep album. The biggest issue was that the fact that some detractors felt the “metal” group was just trying to capitalize on the current musical trends. But to Korn, well, they “were dubstep before there was dubstep.” I shit you not.

    Frontman Jonathan Davis is claiming in an interview with Billboard that he and his fellow band members started the glow stick-ready sound years ago:

    “We were dubstep before there was dubstep. Tempos at 140 with half-time drums, huge bassed-out riffs. We used to bring out 120 subwoofers and line them across the whole front of the stage, 60 subs per side. We were all about the bass.”

    Yeah. You can read the rest of the interview at Billboard. Korn’s new album, The Path to Totality, drops Dec. 6. [FACT]
