Jonathan Davis - Black Labyrinth - CD -

Price per Unit (stuk): €16.95

Music is cathartic. It always has been. Time and time again its creation has served as a mitigation of pain for troubled souls, souls whose pain can extend far beyond the bounds of our comprehension. Through them, music can achieve something that borders on the miraculous. Indeed, it’s part of the reason fans listen, finding hope and a kindred spirit in certain songs and artists. Especially those artists prepared to open a vein and spill everything into their music, sharing it with whoever might need it.

Fewer artists have done this to the same degree as Jonathan Davis. Conveying an unvarnished honesty, the Korn frontman, renowned for his trademark vocal style, has garnered himself one of the largest legions of fans for delivering songs, and performances, so raw, so razor sharp that they flirt with the disturbing. Now J.D. is getting set to do it all again, releasing, what he considers, his masterpiece up to this point; his debut solo album ‘Black Labyrinth’.

With ‘Black Labyrinth’  Davis often rewrites the rule book and severs ties with a great deal of the connotations attached to his name. Indeed ‘Black Labyrinth’ skillfully, and at times ingeniously, executes songs featuring elements of New-Romantic, Goth and, of course, Rock and Metal, to name but a few. Consistently, it bleeds and blends aggressive tones with captivating melody in a way only Davis can. Leading single “What It Is” offers testament to this. A striking chorus resting next to a haunting, though uplifting piano immediately demonstrates the ever evolving capabilities of this eclectic songwriter.

This is seen again and again throughout ‘Black Labyrinth,’ perhaps never more so than within the hypnotic “Final Days.” Embodying the spirit of The Cure with guitar tones that feel borrowed from A Perfect Circle,  “Final Days” is a triumph of exploration and expanding of ones scope. As is the standout “Your God,” which captures an exceptional vocal performance over a hooking riff that sounds borderline Indie. And it works too, without fault! If this somehow fails to beckon, the palpitate Gothic undertones of “The Secret” certainly won’t.
