Coming Up: Korn & Gojira @ Budapest Aréna, 9 June 2020
KORN changed the world with the release of their self-titled debut album. It was a record that would pioneer a genre, while the band’s enduring success points to a larger cultural moment.

Since forming, KORN has sold 40 million albums worldwide, collected two Grammys, toured the world countless times, and set many records in the process that will likely never be surpassed.

Vocalist Jonathan Davis, guitarists James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian “Head” Welch, bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, and drummer Ray Luzier, have continued to push the limits of the rock, alternative and metal genres, while remaining a pillar of influence for legions of fans and generations of artists around the globe. 

The level of KORN’s reach transcends accolades and platinum certifications. They are “a genuine movement in a way bands cannot be now,” attests The Ringer. They represent a new archetype and radical innovation, their ability to transcend genre makes barriers seem irrelevant. 

The Grammy award-winning nu metal pioneers will be on their way for an epic European tour in summer 2020 with their brand new arena show. 

Special guest is Gojira, one of the most popular breakthrough European artists from the recent years.

The French quartet – brother Joe Duplantier (vocals, guitar) and Mario Duplantier (drums), Christian Andreu (guitar) and Jean-Michel Labadie (bass) – gracefully swings between quaking and quivering guitars, mind-bending percussion, chillingly elegant melodies, and cosmic atmospherics.

The band has always dealt in extremes, uncovering light in darkness and finding beauty in heaviness. Their new album, Magma continues that tradition, while expanding the sonic palette.
