Can we end the debate now? Rock ‘n’ roll will never die. Metal will never die. Didn’t anybody listen to Neil Young? Didn’t anybody listen to Ronnie James Dio? If that isn’t enough, I have further proof in the 26,000 fans who attended the sold-out 2015 Rock Allegiance festival at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. Featuring living legends Rob Zombie, Korn and Godsmack, current rock bands carrying the torch like Five Finger Death Punch and Bring Me the Horizon, along with a lineup of other mainstays and up-and-coming bands, Rock Allegiance was a nonstop day celebrating rock and metal.

Review by Jeff Maki
My, how time flies. Twenty years of Korn? Technically, the anniversary of Korn’s seminal, genre-altering debut album was in 2014, but the band extended its tour into 2015, in which it is playing the album from start to finish. Yep, from “Blind,” all the way to the rarely before performed “Daddy.” One week into the tour, Korn played the Fillmore Silver Spring, with deathcore metallers, Suicide Silence and rap-metal up-and-comers Islander in support.
I’ve been a fan since the debut and was a self-proclaimed “Korn-kid” back in the day. I’ve seen, heard and done it all when it comes to this band—it’s been much documented on this site (read here). But this one was extra special, in that many of these songs I either had never heard live before, or you would have to go back to 1994-’95, when I saw the band play smaller clubs in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C., area, when I was thumping around in my late teens.
