Korn is working on a new album but members of the band wouldn’t want to rush things, as they expect the record to come out once it’s ready.
In addition to that, an interview with NME, which was reported by Pop Break , revealed how the band plans on going back to their old sound, citing the “heavier” and “dirtier” riffs that is packed in a different timing to bring out the old Korn sound.
“Keep the melodic elements of what we captured on the last record but really expand on the heavy riffs and get a bit dirtier,” guitarist James Shaffer said of the new Korn album. “Maybe a little longer songs with longer intros, and a little more math rock, not prog-rocky but maybe some slower tempoed grooves that are 7/8 or 3/4 timing and stuff like that.”
In the same report, Munky revealed that they wouldn’t experiment on the new Korn album, after a few fans reacted to the collaboration they had with a few DJs during their 2011 “The Path Of Totality” record.
“It’s about taking chances and going out on a limb,” he continued. “You hear a lot of bands say how every album is a chance to reinvent yourself. For us, I really feel like we’ve gone out on a f-ing plank because sometimes there’s no turning back. You have to commit to it and sometimes it’s like ‘Eh, I don’t know,’ and you kind of let go and see what happens.”
In a different Blabbermouth report, other guitarist Brian Welch revealed what fans could expect on the new album from Korn.
“We’re talking at the moment about taking a couple of months off and going in straight away as it will probably take the rest of the year for us to do the album,” Head said.
“I’d like to put out a heavier, more uptempo record with KORN and tour it hitting all the spots but not tour it as heavily. Do the U.K., do Europe, take time off, two tours in America.”
