Korn talk ‘dirty’ forthcoming LP

By | Published on Tuesday 9 September 2014


Korn have got stuck into making a follow-on to 2013’s ‘The Paradigm Shift’ LP, that being the band’s first in a while to have sometime original guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch playing on it.

And hey kids, guess what. The early signs are that it’s going to be “a bit dirtier” than its antecedent, with Korn’s James ‘Munky’ Shaffer hinting via Pop-Break: “Head and I were talking about how we really want to keep the melodic element of what we captured on the last record – but really expand on the heavy riffs and get a bit dirtier”.

Still speaking, he adds: “Maybe a little longer songs, with longer intros. And a little more math rock. Not prog rock, but maybe some slower grooves and stuff like that”.

And: “It’s about taking chances and going out on a limb. I really feel like we’ve gone out on a fucking plank, because sometimes there’s no turning back. You have to commit to it – and sometimes it’s, ‘Uh, I don’t know’, and you kind of let go and see what happens”.
