Original Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch has officially rejoined the band to work on their
newest album, set to be release later this summer. It will be the first album Welch has
recorded with the band since their 2003 album Take A Look In The Mirror, before his
departure in 2004. A clip from the new album can be streamed here:

Agreed Willie, some of the Love and Death stuff he did was really good, my only complaint with the album was that some of the tracks sounded a bit too similar to each other

It's the style of music, it all sounds really similar but he caught on to a pretty good sound on that album.

It would be nice to hear them release a mature album. Not sure if Jonathan Davis has it in him to write mature lyrics, but musically Fear and the Nervous System (Munky's project) and Love and Death (Head's project) both released albums that show a lot of creativity and inspiration. Hopefully that translates over to this album.

Agreed

I really hope they don't include anything "electronic" in their next album. I love Electronic music, but Korn has no idea how to implant it in their music

Nu metal is dead.

Limp Bizkit is dead, Deftones are alternative metal, Linkin Park are electronic rock, and Slipknot are pseudo-metal.

Head might as well go back to Love and Death, and Korn should break up.

even as a fan of early korn material, Ray Luzier is a much better drummer overall when compared to David

After hearing the song 'Daddy' I thought this band was awful, well more specifically John's lyrics.

Ray > David

This is the best Korn's line up has ever been. Supposedly it's their best since Issues/Untouchables. I always liked S/T, FTL, and 6 songs on Issues.

I was a sucker for SYOTOS and enjoyed that one. Pumped up to hear some of those crushing riffs ala Head...so will definitely check this one out.
