Korn: EVERY Album Ranked Worst To Best

12. The Path Of Totality

The Path of Totality is easily Korn's most daring and experimental album, a fusion of their typically heavy sound and the dub-step featuring artists such Skrillex, Excision and Noisia. Though seeing a band strive to make something fresh and out-of-character often opens the door to better things, Korn's work of Path of Totality is mostly a shambles.

The addition of electronic influence allows the band to create the catchy anthem "Narcissistic Cannibal" alongside Skrillex and Kill the Noise, and there really are some moments of genuine adrenaline, but all-in-all the album lacks the depth and meaning that characterises the band's other records.

The decision to mix up the genres and try something new deserves to be praised, simply because it was so ballsy (and fair, given how long they'd been sticking to their roots), but with songs like "Get Up!" and "Burn the Obedient," it's far from a good album, and even further from being a good Korn album.

Best songs: Narcissistic Cannibal, Chaos Lies In Everything
