    Carcass upended everything with Heartwork bringing all that melody into the brutality.

    When Korn blew up, it was really noticeable across the board when i was in high school. Shredders started becoming old hat, kids weren't learning the shred stuff, lower tunings....That being said, Korn definitely changed the whole landscape with bringing 7's out of the shred realm and into the more mainstream hands.

    Jose Mangin is more irritating than when your bag sticks to your leg. Fuck that guy

    I've NEVER cared for Korn, but the one thing I'll say for them is after they blew up, there were a lot more good seven strings on the market.

    Of course, there were also a lot more people telling me "oh, a seven string? Why not tune a six strong lower? Those things are shitty for anything but metal anyway." So, it was a trade-off.

    I'm not a big Korn fan but they were undeniably unique and influential as hell for a long time. Nobody sounded like them, and that's still the case today - not an easy thing to do in an industry full of clones.

    "Nobody sounded like them" is just the soundbyte friendly "throw this in the preface of the booklet for their career spanning boxset attributed to someone influential" way of saying, "Before Korn, no one was stupid enough to replace the section of a song where a guitar solo would normally go with a white man with dreadlocks frantically beatboxing".

    You know the old adage, "If you can't think of anything nice to say, don't say anything at all..... or say 'at the time, no one sounded like them'."

    I hate it when you get one of those retrospectives and it's just the standard crew of VH1 guest appearance people saying shit like that. I fucking love Black Sabbath, but even the book that came with the Black Box set is fucking terrible like that. You have all the standard guys saying that shit. Rob Zombie, Nikki Sixx, Kat Von D, Scott Ian, etc. etc. etc.

    And it's clear that Rob Zombie has never actually listened to a full Black Sabbath album, some publicist just spoon fed him the standard "people will want this for a retrospective" quote.

    "When I put this on for the first time I thought, 'nobody sounded like these guys'." is the most boilerplate shit ever.

    Unless if you are talking about Jackyl introducing to the chainsaw solo to the world of music of course, then it's justified.

    I heard that one a lot. I just pointed out that having 1 guitar on stage to do tuning in B, drop A, E and drop D made things easier. Also Morbid Angel.
