Videodrone vocalist Ty Elam bagged groceries by time, then jammed in close friends’ parents’ living spaces by evening. In Bakersfield, California, a David Lynch-esque essential oil town, there is no place to try out except country-western night clubs, gay pubs and high academic institutions. Therefore Elam would gather carloads of close friends and get on into LA. In 1990 Videodrone was referred to as Cradle of Thorns, stylizing their man made aggro-electric sound which was influenced just as much by sub-B horror-movie soundtracks because the technoshriek agreements hurtled out by their pals in Korn, their Central Valley homeboys. Obtaining spoken into Korn’s very own label was a content comfort for the music group. Yet a long time before putting your signature on with Korn’s Reprise/Elementree label, Cradle of Thorns agreed upon in 1990 with reputed indie label Triple-X, house of of Public Distortion, Jane’s Cravings, among others. Well-known over the growing Huntington Beach membership picture, Cradle of Thorns released a brief group of back-of-the-van one-off albums with Triple-X, including Keep in mind It Day, Give food to Us and Download This more than a period of four years. Ultimately on the urging of bassplayer Mavis, who enjoyed Korn’s Elementree Reprise subsidiary, bassist Fieldy Arvizu decided to produce a brand-new COT record in 1998. With Korn performing as A&R repetitions with Elementree, Cradle of Thorns acquired one essential alter to create. The boys transformed to the name ‘Videodrone’ designed following the David Cronenberg film Videodrome, to commemorate their fresh label. They needed a fresh name to opt for their fresh experience — futuristic, but nonetheless decidedly “80’s.” The well received fresh Videodrone CD presented Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst and Korn’s Jonathan Davis on vocals. Their Compact disc arrived for the pumps of sold-out concerts with Korn and Rob Zombie.
