      @DonMario I bet producers were even getting in his ear during the FTL sessions too, because they knew that album was gonna be the one that broke them into the mainstream.. Some tracks on there had some sick beats and really original stuff going on, but you’re right.. David’s prime was 94-96.. It’s almost like it’s illegal to have innovative and technical drumming if your track is planning to be on the radio lol

      @SUNIKI Actually after Life is peachy, follow the leader is flat as well

      Ray doesn't fit koRn as well as early David... but he fits koRn just fine in comparison to some of Davids final offerings. His drumming on Take a Look in the mirror was lazy as fuck. His drumming on Untouchables wasn't even really that crazy. Anyone could have done that shit and I don't even think he did it lol. He got pissed because the producer got him to simplify his drumming on Issues. Not a single album had amazing drumming after Follow the Leader. I think people are just blinded by the first two albums.

    I always found something magical about the guitars in this song. I don't know if that's the right word for it, but it just mesmerizes me, it's so hypnotizing. Especially at the "be my neighbor parts", you can hear it most as 4:25. And it's not just this song, it's the atmosphere that comes out of that one part, does anyone know how they get that sound? I'm so curious. It sounds so amazing

      Yea, they do a quick swipe of the lower "high" strings all in open at the same time while playing the low B, E, and A strings power chords on the 7th and 6th fret's of the guitars. Giving it that dark but really "fuller sound"
      One of my favorites from them and I love to cover their songs on guitar. Playing by ear, these demo tape make it easier to hear what is going on at the core of the song before they start layering more track on top.

      A little late, but it's playing open chords with chorus before the distortion

    2:29. JD has one of the most badass vocals ever . I've never heard any other vocals that sound THAT angry.

    This is so haunting.. Even if this is the demo version, the lyrics sung by Jonathan are just amazing.

    This song has never failed to give me chills. It makes me want to rise above and fight forward! Especially when I view this song with the WWII video montage on youtube, its intense. Keep up all this old footage, I love it!!

    Silveria is really having fun on this whole album. I remember him being drummer of the year in Drummer magazine in 1996. I totally get why.

    I fuckin love Davids drumming. If he would've kept this style he would've been an elite drummer.

    Really great job here. Thanks for providing download links to many of these rips. I noticed you have some other tape demos from the old days do you plan to rip and upload those songs eventually too?

    Nope, this is just how it was on the cassette! All I did was remove the tape hiss. Check out all their demos on my site ripped from the original cassettes. They are some of the best versions of their demos on the net all in 320 Kbps.

    @DisturbedOneX I think that Munky is plaing in 8th notes on his high strings. Maybe with a chorus pedal or something on too. It sounds amazing indeed

  • Adrian Hawkins

    the finished final version honestly sounds like the vocals especially are much better. Is this what happens when you spend more money on production, or is this what Ross Robinson brings out of artists? Cause I feel at least with the screams, they are so much better on the FINAL version of LIP.

    • MrParkerman6
      MrParkerman6 2 роки тому +1

      The studio version only sounds better, CUZ of Jon's added backup vocals.

      "Dumb..... Old Man"

      "Child....... Fucker"

      By the way Child and fucker are suppsoed to be two different statements. So many people think he is saying child fucker, but he is actually saying he was just a child when he watched Mr. Rogers, THEN he is calling him a fucker. Two completely different statements.

      I definitely like this better. Just feels organic. Jonathan is my favorite singer not just bc of how he sounds, but bc of how I feel his emotion

      Technically both. (im a singer, amateur music producer too)

      @lifeleech I actually like this version more for some reason. Just a side note, in the finished version, I find the "Dumb" and "Old Man" chorus lines in the first prologue quite hilarious.

      I know this comment is over 7 years old, but i'll explain it to you. Jonathan wrote this because when he was a kid he watched Mr. Rogers and in the show all the characters are basically the perfect person, this left Jonathan ill-prepared for the real world where only a very small percentage of people act this way.

    Well, not really. He hurt himself during after Issues. His drumming on both FTL and Issues was not even close to what he did on the first too albums. He toned it down way before he hurt himself.

      @King Kong86 This comment was probably made before UA-cam had this reply system of today. And I think he/she responded to opusluxaudio.

      Maybe I'm high. But who the fuck you talking to? You make this comment as if your replying to someone or as if this song is about David. Im just lost and genuinely curious

    Yeah but he hurt himself playing this LEET level of drumming. His leaving was the final nail in the coffin for KoRn and now they've devolved into mediocre dubstep

      It was just a one off album. I know you made this comment 7 years ago but check out the last two albums Serenity of Suffering and The Nothing. Both are heavy af.
