Korn have completed work on their 11th studio album, the first to feature former guitarist Brian "Head" Welch since returning after quitting the band in 2005.
Speaking backstage at the Rock Im Park festival in Germany at the weekend, Welch and fellow guitarist Munky said they were about to embark on the final days of mixing:
"We're basically going to finish the whole mixing process tomorrow. The album is completely done, probably in the next day or two," Welch said.
Describing the sound of the new album, Welch added: "The new record definitely sounds like a 2013 'Korn' - it's refreshing. It's my favorite [Korn] record by far."
Munky acknowledged that their 2011 album "The Path of Totality" divided fans with its heavy dubstep influence by producer Skrillex, but says the new record has gone back to their roots.
"There's definitely some electronics on the new album. Not nearly as heavy as 'Totality...' but it feels fresh," said Munky. "We did go out on a limb there and take some chances - some people liked it, some people didn't - but with Brian back in the band it makes sense to have a very guitar-heavy album."
