    The hit of serotonin for longtime fans is an absolute joy. Against the odds, Korn have done it again with Requiem, a quick and ferocious blast that finds the band still hungry and innovative nearly 30 years into the game.

    Musically, Requiem is heavy but not stodgy, fresh but familiar, and accessible without ever feeling forced. Its wisest creative decision, though, is keeping things lean and mean. At just nine tracks, there are few moments that feel anything less than essential.
  3. ‘Requiem’ has brought something new to a discography that, until now, has been an exploration of human suffering. It’s led to the band’s most nuanced record to date.

    Korn are anew, and ‘Requiem’ sees them fearless, no longer managing a balancing act with imprudent collaborators and instead embracing what made them famous to begin with. Impressively, their 14th studio album is teeming with riveting hooks.

    For fans of nu metal and heavy riffs, Requiem will not disappoint, but it lacks the sadness that Korn have long tapped into to differentiate themselves from the pack.

    What remains is a solid, engaging late-period Korn album that doesn’t add an awful lot to their legacy, but certainly doesn’t disgrace it.

    When Jonathan Davis sings "I know this all sounds so cliché," on "Lost In The Grandeur," he's pretty much right. [Feb 2022, p.72]

    This is a fantastic album. Requiem feels heavy but groovy at the same time. It feels like you wanna get up and move and proper rock out to it.

The part of the and the song is cool becuse the song is so **** happy. I bring to this song 9.6 is feel so good and make me so happy.

    Start The Healing: This song feel me boring but i love the riffe is cool riffe from nu metal ganre, is a hard rock song is cute song but not from me you can get used to it but it's feel bord from me. But the growling feel nice. I bring to this song 8.0 is a cute song but hard rockee not from me but remember the riffs is cool.

Is a **** graet song the part of the end is great becuse is first part of start riffe. I bring to this song 9.2 becuse is make so darkee.

    The chorus is funny becuse Jonathan Davis sceming Hopeless And Beaten along the middle rhe end prat is againe boring but heavy is a cute song but boring. I bring to this song 7.9 is not a bad song is a borde againe from me.

    Penance To Sorrow: the **** strat riffe remind me from old album and the album name The Serenity of Suffering from (2016) is good album. Penance To Sorrow start the amizing riffe and The chorus and mid part is feel **** amizing is make feel angry no becuse is a bad song becuse is feel really angry. Good song but the part from the is special is heavy song is the second greates song from my opinion. I bring to this song 10 is a good song.

    My Confession: the start riff is cool from the nu metal is heavy (god you did special) bu the start singer femind me again from fourth name Issues on (1999). Before the chorus feel nu metal no dead and the chorus is cute the song is a bit repetitive but is cool. The part of the end is cool, is a cool song. I bring to this song 8.6 is heavy but A bit repetitive.

    Ok the final song is very feel special.

    Worst Is On Its Way: is the nine song of the album name Requiem is special song. The start riffe remind the third album name Follow the Leader on (1998) before the chorus is **** good and the chorus feel so good and heavy but were the special part of the song on the album is rap part from song name Freak on a Leash (goddaem) the final part feel to is again the rap part and the end is the bass part on blind from the first album.I bring to this song 10 is **** special song.

    In conclusion is good album the possitive part on the album is heavy and good riffs and groovy .But the negtive part is very cute and sweet is not darkee but is good.

    I grew up with Follow The Leader (1998) and Issues (1999), and while I wasn't really a Korn fan, the many catchy hit-singles on those albumsI grew up with Follow The Leader (1998) and Issues (1999), and while I wasn't really a Korn fan, the many catchy hit-singles on those albums were undeniably strong metal songs that appealed to me and a world-wide following that cemented Korn as the top metal band at the time. Anyone who saw their performance at Woodstock '99 knows what I mean. I moved on to other music after the nineties and lost track of Korn and metal as a whole.

    Requiem is nothing new, it's that signature Korn sound. This can go both ways: you've been-there-done-that and you would have preferred a different direction, or you love good old trip to the past. I'm in the latter camp. The opening song Forgotten especially could just as well been a song on one of their late-nineties albums and I absolutely love it: explosive aggressiveness, alternated by a softer, catchy and groovy melodic part. It's textbook Korn and remains that way throughout the (rather short) album.

    This album grabbed my attention and I'm enjoying it as a blasting nostalgia trip. Sometimes it doesn't have to be more than that.

    I am not a huge metal fan and so didn't think that I would enjoy this album, but I really did. Strong 7 out of 10.

The same formula is used to write every song and there is no progression in their sound. I loved Korn and so badly want to hear them explore new sounds but I just don’t think it’s going to happen Expand
