Members of Korn
recently sat down with Metal Hammer TV
to discuss the making of upcoming record "The Paradigm Shift
," revealing an interesting set of circumstances surrounding the new album.
As guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer
noted, getting back to the old work routine was all the five-piece looked for. His fellow axeman Brian "Head" Welch
on the other hand, confessed that the initial tension was most definitely present.
[Head] be part of the writing process again - it took a big weight off my shoulders. It gave me time to sit back and digest the song as a listener,"
Munky explained. "We just wanted to get in a rehearsal studio and jam the songs - write the songs as a band as we did 10 years ago."
Head chipped in, "When I went back to studio with Korn, I was strong, but at the same time I was like 'Wow, the last time I jammed with these guys - it wasn't fun.' So is this gonna be fun or is it gonna be weird? It instantly was fun, I was a little nervous, I think we all were, but by the second day, we knew it was meant to be and that we're gonna do an album together,"
"The Paradigm Shift" is scheduled for an October 8 release via Caroline Records. Previously announced
by "Never Never" single, it will mark the eleventh record in Korn opus and a follow-up to 2011's "The Path of Totality
