Korn's latest album, "The Path Of Totality", saw the band teaming up with dubstep producers and DJs to add a whole new electronic layer to their sound. The band's guitarist, James "Munky" Shaffer, tells that while Korn's sound will continue to evolve, it is unlikely that the band's next CD, which the group is currently writing, will sound its predecessor, Blabbermouth reports.
"I wouldn't say it's a 180[-degree turn] from the last album, but we're definitely taking a different approach," he said. "We're not going with the dubstep style, but we are using a lot of interesting recording techniques."
Asked if the next album will be a bit heavier than "The Path Of Totality", Munky said: "I think it will be. I think once Jonathan [Davis] puts vocals on it, it has... it's more melodic and the guitars are more aggressive and much more in your face. I think what we did before was bold and took a lot of balls, in regards to the album devoted entirely to dubstep. To me it's very much a Korn album, but I want to feature more guitar on this album, on the one we're writing right now, we still have one foot in the electronic [style], not necessarily the dubstep [sound], and we still have a fresh approach on the guitar riffs with some melodic vocals. Jonathan is great at sort of delivering the aggressive lyrics and vocals."
