Biography - Jonathan Davis' Rap-Rock Crew
Formed in California in 1993, the five-piece have chalked up over two decades
of rap-rock brilliance, with much of it seeing them at the very top of the metal tree, a position they still enjoy today.
1998's Follow the Leader was their mainstream breakthrough, but earlier albums Neidermeyer's Mind 1994's self-titled
effort and 1996's Life is Peachy had already showed their promise. Their fusion of rap and rock would influence a generation
of bands and help make nu-metal one of the biggest musical movements in the world. 2002's Untouchables and 2003's Take
a Look in the Mirror shows that they were above any fad genres, though.
After the major label success they explored
new boundaries in sound expansion with Roadrunner Records, who Davis said were, "One of the last record companies to let you
do what you want to do". They took the independent spirit further by announcing that their 2013 album The Paradigm Shift
would be released independently. Always ploughing their own path, this band have done it their own way - get Korn tickets
