Head on New Korn Album: 'Songs Are Art, We've Never Had That'
Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch recently sang praises of the band's new record "The Paradigm Shift," saying that he considers new songs art, something he never did with any of the band's previous efforts. "Every song on the album is good, every song does something and it's got some kind of hook or some kind of a - just a cool guitar riff," he told Metal Hammer TV. "Just overall songs are a great piece of art. We've never had than on a Korn record, I don't think." Head also singled out "The Paradigm Shift" as a personal favorite within the Korn opus. "I'm very proud of this album," he said. "This is my personal favorite album, just because I'm so clear-headed and the songs - all of us were just so clear and you can hear that on the album an just the person I am today - it's by far my favorite." The rest of the band mostly shared Welch's opinion, as well as expressed great gratitude and relief for the axeman's comeback. Head recently commented on the band's evolution in his absence, noting that the "Korn sound had definitely changed" since his departure. "The Paradigm Shift" saw its release on October 8 through Caroline Records as the band's eleventh studio effort. With 46,000 units shipped in the US within the first week, it landed at No. 8 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Make sure to check out the latest video for "Love & Meth" single below.
