Korn Strayed Outside Comfort Zone With New Album Writing


(TeamRock) James 'Munky' Schaffer says Korn might have strayed too far from their signature sound when writing their upcoming album Serenity Of Suffering but the experiments didn't make the cut for the effort.

Though the guitarist reveals that there are some progressive moments on the follow-up to 2013's The Paradigm Shift - he hints that he and Brian 'Head' Welch ventured a little too far outside of their "comfort zone" on some material that ended up not making it on to the album.

Schaffer tells Full Metal Jackie: "We worked for a long time on it. Head and I started writing the album in a little small room, about 10 feet by 10 feet, in Hollywood.

"We wrote around three demo songs on eight-string guitars. This was before the producer got involved. There are even moments on the record that feel a little progressive for us. Those didn't quite make the cut. They didn't really sound like Korn songs, but we did use a lot of parts and pieces and ideas. But it just didn't fit.

"It just doesn't sound like Korn, and it was kind of, like, 'Okay, well, it was a good try.' We tried to get outside of our comfort zone a little bit there, and maybe it was too much." Read more here.
