Korn - Freak On a Leash

Sunday, time for a classic.

"Freak on a Leash" is a song by the American nu metal band KORN, featured on the group's 1998 studio album, Follow the Leader. Prior to the album's release, KORN had an instrumental section of the song, described as a "noisy guitar break." The section was taken out of the song after their fans requested it be taken out. After Follow the Leader's release, the song was released as a single on May 25, 1999, and since then, it has been re-released over ten times. The song uses dissonance, distortion, various guitar effects, and a heavy, aggressive style.

The "Freak on a Leash" music video was released on February 5, 1999. Directed by Todd McFarlane in Los Angeles, California, the video explores both animations and live performances mixed together. As a result, the band released a music video that won three awards, and was retired from Total Request Live. The single peaked at number six on the Alternative Songs chart, 10 on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart, and 24 on the UK Singles Chart.

Yesterday, did KORN together with TWISTED SISTER headline the nowadays Classic Metal Festival "Hellfest" at Val de Moine, Clisson, France, with absolutely fantastic set. This set was my working music, couldn't have it much better to be honest. Not every day that you get a perfect working music in a good level that is enjoyable. I don't have any pictures on this, just got a fast look during the work. But the sound was great and the guys did a great show.

Crazy line up, right!

Here is the setlist from Hellfest
