It was inevitable. When founding Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch quit the nu-metal pioneers after finding God in 2005, fans hoped he would find the balance he needed to reunite with the band. Their hopes were justified earlier this year when he played with the band at some festivals. Then the reunited group wasted no time recording a new albumthe true-to-thudding-form The Paradigm Shiftand getting back on the road. That brings us to tonight, the first time Korn's original frontline has performed a concert in New York City in eight years. With Asking Alexandria and Head's other band, Love & Death.
