Their regular drummer David Silveria has decided to sit this one out, so Korn have rotated Davis , Bad Religion 's Brooks Wackerman , and Terry Bozzio of all people through the drummer's chair, giving the album just a shade too much professionalism in its rhythmic pulse. This, combined with layers of overdubbed baritone vocals and the elastic electronics that are meant to sound modern but wind up sounding like a relic from the mid-'90s, gives Untitled all the relevancy of an unrecorded bridge between Marilyn Manson 's Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals.
Also keep in mind that DVDs are reliable sources that can be cited. The Guy complain edits , 22 August UTC The official site does not call it untitled; it says it has no title. Two completely different things. It also imports into my computer as "Untitled". And stuff like Gracenotes is imperfect; you get several hits for one CD. Even then, it will only say "Untitled" because the database which, in Gracenotes' case, is user-submitted needs to have a title.
Sceptre talk , 22 August UTC So then you see my point, that it's a placeholder, and we should follow suit. They could've listed it as "untitled eighth album", but they listed it as "Untitled" instead, and so, too, should we. Wikipedia is much more fluid and not constrained by "X Y album " conventions; we can have articles named "X" cf Made in the Dark , "X Y album " cf Zeitgeist Smashing Pumpkins album or, where an album isn't titled, "Untitled Y album" cf Untitled Nas album.
Sceptre talk , 22 August UTC I still propose that we follow in suit of what all of our sources do -- And that is list it as simply "Untitled". The Guy complain edits , 22 August UTC Don't give it a title which is easily done by rewriting the line and removing the parentheses from the article title , because the album is officially untitled.
These titles are both uncommon and improper when most people and media sources refer to it as Led Zeppelin IV. I mean, we obviously can't title this as "new Korn album" since it won't be new forever, and "Korn's eighth studio album" will hardly ever be searched for and is too descriptive.
So, the choice seems to be between "Untitled Korn album" and "Untitled Korn album ". Both of them will probably be searched for equally, but Untitled Korn album is probably the most neutral name Wikipedia can give it.
Of course, the issue of the album's name or rather the lack of a name can be clarified in the lead section.
Sceptre talk , 22 August UTC Yes, but there is no rule stating that we have to use the exact same formats for every article. This article could very well be an exception. By the way, you bring up an interesting point. However, in speech it could be just as referred to as "the Untitled Korn album". Then again, the "Korn album" is more of a descriptor rather than part of the title, so I'm still for keeping the title as Untitled Korn album. Xnux the Echidna , 22 August UTC Yes, but most people refer to it as "Untitled, the Korn album" simply because its listed as "Untitled, the Korn album" for promotional purposes.

Couldn't walk through the halls without hearing that or being picked on. When I was a kid, I was being abused by someone else. I don't really like to talk about that song. Stephen Stickler acted as the band's photographer, and Jay Papke and Dante Ariola directed the album's cover art and booklet.
The cover depicts Paul Pontius' niece in a blue school uniform with a matching bow in her blonde hair, bringing her swing to a stop to squint in the sun at the man standing before her. The man is only seen as a dark shadow on the ground, and is holding what appears to be a horse shoe or, more presumably, blades.
The band's logo, a childlike drawing of the band's name created by lead singer Jonathan Davis,  is seen on the sandy ground by the man. After Korn finished recording the album, they began touring with Biohazard and House of Pain at free gigs.
Korn personally passed out flyers at their performances. Their record company gave them enough money for their own tour bus. Korn's first gig was in Atlanta, Georgia. The tour lasted 3 months  and was preceded with the group touring with Megadeth , where they played to crowds of thirty-five-hundred to five thousand. All of this happened in the summer of Lead vocalist Jonathan Davis introduced the bagpipes while performing live however many people there did not like this.
Korn began touring in Europe during September One of Korn's first concert dates was in Nottingham. After the performance, there was conflict between Korn's bassist Fieldy and someone from "tech," resulting in the airport prohibiting them from boarding the plane. By the end of , Korn had already played dates in support of their first album. Korn was well received by music critics. Arnopp stated that the group "positively encouraged America's formerly introverted, apathetic misfits to thrust a livid middle finger in the face of high—school jocks who would traditionally bundle them into a locker and brand them 'faggots' for sporting hair longer than any Army buzz-cut.
In their original review, the Los Angeles Times wrote "Kindred to such bands as Tool , Rollins Band and Rage Against the Machine , Korn and its singer-lyricist, Jonathan Davis, make their core ethic fairly explicit in songs like "Predictable," "Lies" and "Fake": the world is a torment-filled morass that leaves us seething with deep, internalized fears; virtue lies in confronting those painful truths unflinchingly and screaming them to the world.
Sputnikmusic thought that although Davis isn't the best lyricist, he is able to paint very disturbing visual images in the head of the listener, especially on the song "Daddy". Sputnikmusic also thought that Davis's voice was what made Korn unique, and that it made every song on the album interesting. They praised each of the members' skill on their respective instrument, and summed it up as "a bass heavy, angst ridden vessel of catharsis".
Metal Hammer considered the album to be Korn's best, writing, "this is a record that remains as integral to modern metal as the first Black Sabbath album or Metallica 's Master of Puppets.
