attacked Korn's last album, 2002's "Untouchables,"
for being too slickly produced, and it wound up
being the band's lowest-selling album to date.
Korn seems to have taken those opinions into consideration
when writing its sixth album, due this fall. "Did
My Time" is featured in the movie "Lara Croft
Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" -- but it doesn't
appear on the soundtrack. The song opens with
a raw guitar riff before switching to the heavy,
bass-driven sound that has spawned many an imitator
since Korn's debut nine years ago.
the band's signature tone hasn't changed that
much over the years, this song's chorus reveals
a more musical and melodic side of the group.
Currently opening for Ozzy Osbourne on this summer's
Ozzfest, Korn has done its time, and fans have
responded in kind, harvesting this early taste
of the new album with its blast onto The Billboard
Hot 100 at No. 56.
