Concert Review: Korn “The Path of Totality” Tour, Orlando FL

Korn
“The Path of Totality” Tour
Hard Rock Live, Orlando, FL

Our Score: 3 out of 5 stars

I have been listening to Korn since 1994 and I have always been a big fan.  I have seen them live twice prior to this event back in 1999 and 2003.  They are always known for their intense energy…and of course wild mosh-pits.  This concert followed that same format and wasn’t much different.  Jonathan Davis really seems to loose himself while on stage and totally gets into the music, even though he tended to disappear from stage occasionally.  The playlist was ok even though the ordering of the songs felt out of place and carried an odd pace.

I felt that concert was split into three main parts.  The beginning of the show started with a few old and rare songs, honestly not the best choices.  But I really do love “No Place to Hide” though.  Once things get started and exciting they starting into their new songs, which was a bit of down slope in the energy.  I liked them new songs but I wish they were more spread out and not bunched together.  Halfway through the show is when they really started to rock some major ass nailing all the classic songs we love from Korn.

I honestly think that their cover of “Another Brick in the Wall” is so fantastic and is packed with so much energy.  They turn this great song into one powerful headbanging tribute.  All and all the concert was definitely fun and entertaining even besides a spotty set list.  Will I be seeing Korn again live…OH YEAH! I will be keeping an eye out for their new album, “The Path of Totality” as well which drops on December 6, 2011.
