The metal band from Bakersfield, California recently released their version of “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” the original track from the great Charlie Daniels Band. You can view the release here via Bandcamp. All proceeds from the track will be donated to Awakening Youth a nonprofit organization devoted to young people faced with the loss of a parent due to divorce, addiction, death, being surrendered for adoption, or other reasons. Johnathan Davis voice is powerful, captivating, and filled with raw energy fitting when dancing with the devil. The track is in honor of the late Charlie Daniels who passed away back on July 6th 2020. This continues the relationship between Korn and Awakening Youth. The organization figured prominently in the documentary LOUD KRAZY LOVE about guitarist and co-founder Brian “Head” Welch. Awakening Youth fulfills a mission to uplift at-risk young men and women in the wake of losing a parent. The team offers one-on-one individualized support to personally encourage and motivate and, ultimately, restore families.
The two time Grammy award winning metal band has sold 40 million albums worldwide, played some of the biggest venues around the world, with endless sold-out shows which I had the pleasure of photographing when Korn headlined with Alice In Chains last summer here in Michigan at DTE Energy Music Theater a must see band for sure. You can expect high energy from start to finish, with some crazy sick guitar riffs, leaving their metalhead followers wanting more. The band has produced five studio albums with “The Nothing” released back in 2019. These are some crazy times we are living in 2020. The year was dubbed the year of the concerts with so many great band’s coming to town. Make no mistake about it when the time is right to rock and roll again, Korn energy will be on a level never seen before.
