Karma Zero Covers Korn’s “Blind” With New Music Video

With this cover, Karma Zero tries to display the band’s own version with hints to the metalcore and deathcore style, rather than to copy the original version with just a different production and specific vocals.

The five-piece respects Korn’s original song, yet re-appropriates it to create a new Karma Zero track appearing on sophomore album “Monsters” that just saw release April 12th. The band comments on this cover experiment:

“The original words by Jonathan Davis on ‘Blind’ depict his global malaise and his helplessness feeling towards it and his fear of the outside world. That matches perfectly with the whole concept of Karma Zero’s latest album ‘Monsters.’ Actually, the band draws a parallel between old monster movies from the 50’s and our everyday life.

“The movies creatures are always rejected due to their difference and the misunderstanding of ‘regular’ people. This feeling is also shared by the one whose style walks away from the norm, sometimes leading to a mutual understanding denial. Modern monsters, in other words. The original Korn track matches ideally with the band’s words when giving the point of view of an ‘everyday monster.'”

Sumerian Records Comments On Recent Signing Of Borgore Following Fan Backlash

Sumerian Records, known best for playing home to death metal acts The Faceless and Born of Osiris amongst many other metalcore bands, has posted the following statement online defending its recent signing of Israeli dubstep/hip-hop act Borgore following backlash from the online metal community.

“Dear Everybody,

There’s a difference between Sumerian Records the label and Sumerian Metal the movement. We have never set out to be a one dimensional label. When we sign a progressive metal band, you can count on them being fucking awesome. When we sign something out of your comfort zone, we can count on you to pay attention and you can count on us to keep you talking. From Meshuggah to Led Zeppelin, Tool to The Police, The Faceless to Dr. Dre, if we like it then we like it. Our passion knows no boundaries. Now go check out Enfold Darkness and Circle of Contempt as they deserve Sumerian Nation’s support. P.S. We just signed The Haarp Machine so we can get away with murder right now.”
