Korn has finally released their new album Requiem. The recurring theme I have been discussing during the pandemic is that it has allowed bands to spend more time composing and honing in on the best-sounding album possible. Members of Korn have admitted to having additional time to put Requiem together, due to the fact that they could not go out on tour. Thus focusing more energy than usual on the album.
This is the first album without Fieldy, who announced his hiatus from the band some time ago. There is no word as to when or if he’ll return to the band. As much as I like the album, I do think it is missing what Fieldy brings to the table. Sure, they’ve used his demo parts in the songs, but there is just that deviant ingredient missing. It’s like when Head was not in the band. Most of the music was good, but you could tell, had he been around it would have catapulted certain songs over the top.
If Fieldy was present, I would gamble to think that the bass would be pushed a little more forward in the mix. I would also think the playing would be a little more intricate.
Requiem is a very good album, it continues the band’s second wind in their career. Which in my opinion started with the album The Serenity In Suffering, and continued with Nothing. Diehards are going to want to check the album out. It is a little over half an hour-long, and a very easy listen.
And if you’re not into the album, just know that they’re already writing the follow-up!
Here is Korn with "Let The Dark Do The Rest" of their latest album Requiem.

Not only do you need to know the correct answer, but you also need to be the quickest to answer correctly. The faster you answer, the more points you obtain. But answer wrong, and you’ll lose points.
