(Metal Hammer) Korn's Jonathan Davis has explained how he writes and records his vocal parts. The band released their 12th studio album The Serenity Of Suffering in October. And the singer jokes that he can sometimes be a "diva" when it comes to his contribution to Korn's sound.

Davis tells The Sixx Sense radio show (via Blabbermouth): "I need to have a song completely done. I guess I'm a little diva when it comes to that stuff! It dictates what I'm going to be feeling, emotions, everything. I need that. I need to have that landscape to inspire me to do what I do. Once the music is all done, I know exactly where to place my vocals and fill the holes and do all of that to make it work. I guess it's backwards."

He continues: "I am the last one always on the record to be done. They give me a window of two weeks. Also, being a father over the years, I take care of the boys all the time.

"When I get home, I give my wife a break and take the kids. I've learned to be really quick and efficient in the studio. I come in, the song is done, I listen to it, and usually I just sing the melody lines. I go into the studio and I spend two days doing all of the melody lines to all of the songs, then I come back, write the lyrics, then sing them. I do about a song a day." Read more here.
