Korn's Head Talks Intense New Album


(Classic Rock) Korn wrote their upcoming album to help them better connect with the crowd at their live shows, Brian 'Head' Welch says. The guitarist says that vocalist Jonathan Davis "grabbed his soul and ripped it open" on the "intense" follow-up to 2013's The Paradigm Shift.

Head tells HardDrive Radio: "I would definitely describe the new Korn music as intense. I was telling someone earlier that we wrote this record thinking about what Korn was when we first started.

"I think we've learned how to write songs - we can write good songs a lot. But what is Korn? We started this band thinking of the live shows and what the crowd would do with us. How can we connect with the crowd? And we would write songs thinking like that.

"So this new record, it was all about, 'What's going to happen when we play this song?' What's going to happen when we play this riff? And that's the new record. It's just intense." Read more here.
