Korn's 'Serenity Of Suffering' Album Artwork Explained


(Metal Hammer) Artist Ron English has shed light on his vision for Korn's Serenity Of Suffering album artwork. He says his image of a young boy walking into a carnival, while holding the doll which features on the cover of their 1999 album Issues, represents his "resurrection" from his traumatic childhood past.

In a post shared by guitarist Munky, English says: "The boy is pulling the Issues doll out from a pile of abandoned toys at the edge of the midway as he heads into the thick of the carnival.

"The underlying theme is resurrection, a boy reclaiming power over his childhood trauma, creating a new narrative to reckon with the demons that damaged him.

"He is reanimating the doll as himself, and whatever cowed him as a child will be absorbed and deflected through the doll." Read more here.
