Guitar Center has announced the upcoming induction of Grammy Award-winning hard rock innovators KORN into the retailer’s historic RockWalk. The private, invite-only induction ceremony is set to take place on Tuesday, October 8, at noon at Guitar Center‘s Hollywood location on Sunset Boulevard.

After two Grammy Awards, eleven MTV Video Music Award nominations, and millions of records sold, the members of KORN will take their place amongst fellow rock idols in Guitar Center‘s RockWalk. Adding to the celebratory nature of the day, KORN will also release its hotly anticipated eleventh studio album, “The Paradigm Shift”, on October 8.

“When you look at the names of the other people inducted here, all you can say is, ‘Wow!’ What an honor!” says singer Jonathan Davis of KORN.

Adds guitarist Munky: “When we started out, we were five guys in a garage with a dream. I’d like to think we tried our best to create some great music and an innovative sound, but to be honest, we are truly humbled to be included here.”

KORN is about as innovative and influential as they come,” says Dave Weiderman, Chairman of Guitar Center‘s RockWalk. “They have been purveyors of metal’s progression since their formation, and are even credited with creating the ‘nu metal’ subgenre. For these reasons, and many more, KORN is exactly the type of band the RockWalk is here to honor.”

Guitar Center‘s RockWalk is dedicated to honoring those artists who have made a significant impact and lasting contribution to the growth and evolution of rock ‘n’ roll, blues and R&B. As the newest RockWalk inductees, KORN‘s handprints will reside alongside the handprints, signatures, and faces of other equally accomplished musicians and innovators such as Eric Clapton, George Martin, Jimmy Page, IRON MAIDEN, Carlos Santana, Johnny Cash, VAN HALEN, AC/DC, AEROSMITH, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, RUN-D.M.C. and QUEEN, among numerous others.

Toxic Holocaust

Toxic Holocaust: apocalypse now

Chemistry Of Consciousness, Toxic Holocaust’s forthcoming first album in five years proves once again that thrash is at its most potent when a) you throw in a whole bunch of sonic pollutants, and b) you actually sound like some badass, nuclear-apocalypse-surviving warrior of the wastelands.

Featuring all manner of d-beats, caustic, black metal atmospheres, true punk venom and an air of genuine menace throughout, Chemistry… – released on October 25 via Relapse Records – is scabrous, coal-eyed thrash metal that that belongs more in the unholy, confrontational company of bands like Destroyer 666, Aura Noir and Nekromantheon than it does in the cleaner cut, more classicist purveyors of the form. Now head honcho Joel Grind has released the track Rat Eater like some particularly nasty flesh-ravaging virus and you can hear it exclusively right here. Thash till death! And beyond!

Thy Art Is Murder: br0000dal

You’ve probably heard of Thy Art Is Murder by now, and if you haven’t, we guarantee you won’t stop hearing about them by the end of 2013. Australia’s newest purveyors of vicious, groove-laden death metal have terrorised their homeland into giving them the prestigious honour of being the first extreme metal band to ever chart nationally there, and their international prowess is starting to grow at a startling rate for a band that plough such a gnarly, thunderously heavy brand of music.

This week, it’s been time for the UK to find out what the rest of the world is raving about, with the Aussies still to blaze through Glasgow, Hull, Manchester, London and, er, Margate, with Here Comes The Kraken and Martyr Defiled in tow. We’ve tried to think of a way to best describe the pure, unadulterated chaos that kicks off at a Thy Art Is Murder show, but we just couldn’t do it justice, so we’re put together a few photos to try and give you a rough idea of what to expect:

Thy Art Is Murder play the following dates:

21st Feb 2013 Glasgow, Audio
22nd Feb 2013 Hull, Ringside
23rd Feb 2013 Manchester, NQ Live
24th Feb 2013 London, Barfly
