Korn

Korn at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre on Wednesday, August 21, 2019Korn’s cathartic alternative metal sound positioned the group among the most popular and provocative to emerge during the post-grunge era of the late ’90s. The band began their existence as the Bakersfield, California-based metal band LAPD, which included guitarists James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian “Head” Welch, bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, and drummer David Silveria. After issuing an LP in 1993, the members of LAPD crossed paths with Jonathan Davis, a mortuary science student moonlighting as the lead vocalist for the local group Sexart. They soon asked Davis to join the band, and upon his arrival the quintet rechristened itself Korn. They recorded their demo, Neidermayer’s Mind, in 1993 with producer Ross Robinson (Deftones, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot), who would go on to be one of the most sought-after rock producers of the late ’90s and early aughts.

After signing to Epic’s Immortal imprint, they issued their debut self-titled album in late 1994. With a relentless tour schedule that included stints opening for Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Marilyn Manson, and 311, the record slowly but steadily rose in the charts, eventually going gold on the back of hit single “Blind.” Combining dark lyrical content about child abuse, molestation, discrimination, and drug addiction, hip-hop influences, and downtuned guitar sludge, Korn were unintentionally at the forefront of the movement that would be dubbed nu-metal.

Alice In Chains

alice in chainsThe roots of Alice in Chains lay in Sleze, a Seattle-based hair metal band that featured Layne Staley as lead singer. Sleze switched their name to Alice N Chains in 1986, roughly a year prior to Staley’s introduction to Cantrell at a party at the rehearsal space called the Music Bank. The pair became friends and Staley invited Cantrell to crash with him at his rented unit at the Music Bank. Shortly afterward, Alice N Chains broke up, as did Cantrell’s band, Diamond Lie. Cantrell began auditioning players for a new band, recruiting drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Starr, but he still needed a vocalist and held out hope for Staley to join. At the time, Staley was singing in a funk band that also happened to need a guitarist, so Cantrell agreed to play on the condition his friend would join the fledgling group. Staley agreed. Not long afterward, the funk band folded and this quartet gelled under the name Alice in Chains. (Source)

Fever 333

Fever 333Los Angeles-based trio FEVER 333 inject their raucous hybrid rap-rock sound with politically charged lyrics similar to forebears Rage Against the Machine, with additional touches of Public Enemy, Black Flag, and Linkin Park. Abrasive, aggressive, and energetic, the three-piece outfit features frontman Jason Aalon Butler (ex-LetLive), guitarist Stephen Harrison (the Chariot), and drummer Aric Improta(Night Verses). With full support by producers Travis Barker(blink-182) and John Feldmann (Goldfinger) — who signed the band to their More Hi-Hat label — FEVER 333 made their debut in 2017 with fiery live shows and grassroots organization to promote their message of “community, charity, and change.” This socially conscious spirit was woven into early tracks like the visceral “Hunting Season,” the genre-blurring trap-metal “Walking in My Shoes,” and the fiery “We’re Coming In.” In March 2018, the band announced that they had inked a deal with Roadrunner Records, releasing the EP Made in America. Strength in Numb333rs, the group’s first full-length effort, arrived in early 2019.
