Korn Live: The Encounter (2010)

Korn Live: The Encounter is a live release by the American metal band Korn, to promote their studio album Korn III: Remember Who You Are. It premiered on Sunday July 11, 2010 on HDNet, and then streamed on the band's Myspace profile.

Background[edit]

Although a live performance piece, the concert has no audience beyond production crew. In July, a number of viral videos were released by the band, the first two videos included amateur footage of crop circles and unidentified flying objects, while the second two included news footage of the phenomenons identifying its location as Kern County.[1] The Korn logo could also be seen in one of the crop circles.[2] On July 7, the band announced "Korn Live: The Encounter, A Concert for Korn III: Remember Who You Are" a live concert filmed June 24 at the crop circles.[3] The concert would be premiered via HDNet on July 11, and the day after via MySpace.[3]

The unusual setting for the concert was inspired by Pink Floyd's Live at Pompeii concert, the 80-minute concert included several new songs from the upcoming album, as well as older songs and fan favorites.[2] Davis noted that "the setting and the mood took us into a totally new direction musically. We took the opportunity to stretch out and experiment with the performance" while Shaffer described it as "a new frontier musically for Korn".[2] "Need To" and "Coming Undone" were cut from the final broadcast. Clips of the performance from "Let the Guilt Go" were used in the music video of the song.[4]

The DVD version was released on December 6, 2011 as a bonus disc with the special edition of Korn's tenth studio release, The Path of Totality. It includes the full concert; unlike the broadcast which cut songs "Need To" and "Coming Undone", and will feature band interviews about the concert and their new album. The DVD is over 2 hours in length.
