Korn: "We were dubstep before there was dubstep"

Are you gagging to hear Korn’s new dubstep album, The Path of Totality? You’re not? Well, it seems the nu-metal group thinks you should be – as if we just couldn’t wait until Monday when the album is released, Korn has posted a seven minute preview of the forthcoming record online.

This comes a few days after frontman Jonathan Davis threw sanity to the wind and announced that his band were “dubstep before there was dubstep”. Remember, Davis has previously stated “I’ve been a fan of dubstep since I started listening to it in 2009”. Um?

But if you’re sick of hearing about this musical blasphemy, seems you’re not alone. One of the guys who actually invented dubstep, Skream, posted on his Facebook “To everyone constantly sending me messages regarding Korn saying they invented Dubstep, my answer is…..... I dont care!!!!! Everyone needs to stop playing into the media’s hands!”

If, for whatever reason, you feel compelled to listen to the preview, we’ve chucked it in below. But be warned: what is heard cannot be unheard.
