Korn Frontman on New Album: 'If It Was Up to Me, We'd Have Way More Electronics'
Korn singer Jonathan Davis recently discussed an ongoing guitar vs. electronica argument within the band, saying that drastically different ideas and ultimate compromise are what made "The Paradigm Shift" the band's best effort to date. "I was like, 'Wait! I didn't come back to do an electronic album!'" guitarist Brian "Head" Welch told Revolver magazine. Davis then chipped in, "Head kept saying, 'I wanna do a metal record! I wanna do a metal record! I was like, 'Bro, you've been gone eight years. We already made those records.' With our last album [2011's "The Path of Totality"], which was filled with dubstep and EDM beats we thought, 'Man, this is so different and new. Let's keep going with this.'" Jonathan then admitted that if he had his way, the new album would be much more electronica-fueled. "If it was up to me, we'd have way more electronics, but we compromised, and I'm so glad we did," he said (via the PRP). "Pushing and pulling against each other helped us make our best album ever." Head agreed with the singer, saying, "The electronic parts are sprinkled in the sings in a really good way. I mean, 95 percent of the album sounds like old Korn. It's just mixed with some newer sounds." "The Paradigm Shift" saw its release on October 8 through Caroline Records as the band's eleventh studio effort.
