Korn Recording Two New Albums2009-04-29 by metal666pwns | 44 Comments
|Fieldy tells Billboard.com that he, founding bandmates Jonathan Davis and James "Munky" Shaffer, and drummer Ray Luzier have been "really banging it out" in his basement studio in Laguna Hills, Calif., coming up with "a bunch of songs" with original Korn producer Ross Robinson. He adds that "there's nothing lyrically put down yet", but Davis may be taking a studio on the road when Korn kicks off its tour with Avenged Sevenfold on Saturday in Tucson, Ariz., to begin laying down ideas.|
Working with Robinson again, Fieldy notes, is "really bring out, like, old school Korn. It's heavy riffs and we're trying to strip it down raw and get those heavy groove riffs that make you want to hop around or jump around or just go crazy. We're going towards that."
Fieldy says Korn hoped to have a new song or two to road-test during the tour but abandoned that plan because of the plethora of material that's been coming out during the sessions - including covers of songs such as nine inch nails' "Head Like A Hole," "Faith No More's "We Care A Lot" and the Psychedelic Furs' "Love My Way" that will be part of a separate, all-covers album that currently has no release forecast.
"We're just going to take a little break now (from recording) and come back fresh," Fieldy says. "We've been home for over a year now. We really want to get out on stage. We put together a set of a lot of Korn classic songs; I'm excited to play some of these songs we haven't played in years."
Fieldy has plenty of other projects on his plate these days. He's nearing completion on "Surrounded By Liars," the first album by Stillwell, his "street metal" band with rapper Q Unique and POD drummer Wuv Bernardo in which Fieldy plays guitar. He's also started an all-instrumental "funk, fusion, jazz-type" solo album and has two book projects in the works to follow up his memoir, "Got The Life" one is collection of affirmations and thoughts called "Fieldy's Daily Dope," while the other is an experimental, non-fiction idea that's still being developed.
Thanks for the report to Billboard.com
hope this is some good news :D
"We put together a set of a lot of Korn classic songs"
Hopefully this statement proves to be true.
Next time, don't do a straight copy-paste... re-write the article in your own words. By all means, quote the people who need quoting, but all the other stuff can be re-written in your own voice. Thanks!
How is Korn not tired of Korn yet? Fieldy's solo album will probably suck but it still sounds more interesting than more bland metal.
This sounds promising.
I had heard Korn was planning on covering Erotic City. I, as much as Ive started to dislike Korn, would love to hear that if its true.
One at a time, boys.
As long as it's not like their last few albums then I'm okay with it...
"Old school Korn."
They can call them Collected $$ and Collected $$$, with Collected $ already done and dusted.
i hope the new korn material provides plenty of chances to jump da fukk up
don't they do this like every 6 months
Probably the most irrelevant band still playing today.
I'm actually a pretty big Korn fan and have to admit this sounds awful. I remember the last time they "went back to old school Korn".
I got Take a Look in the Mirror.
^^ I didn't get Take a Look in the Mirror, but they really did promote it as being like "classic" Korn. I remember sorta liking these guys in high school... can't really remember why since the only time I ever listen to them is when they come up randomly on my ipod and I skip it.
I read on an oh-so-reliable-source one time (Wikipedia) that one of the cd's was going to be a concept cd about "organized religion and politics".
"If Gooddd is goood then why are there baaaaad people!! BURR RAHAH NYUK AK *scat singing*"
Haha! I enjoyed the scat singing in Freak On A Leash (if that was scat singing).
I didn't like "Take a Look in the Mirror" very much, but after their last two albums i pray the new one is half as good as "Take a look..."...
this is bad news, i was hoping they wouldnt make 1 new album nevermind 2.
So much hate on here ha ha. I love Korn, so I always have hopes for them, even though Untitled and S.Y.O.T.O.S. sucked. But they do have the original producer, so u never know. They are awesome live, so much energy.
And hey, Metallica said they were going old school and came out with St. Anger, which sucked. Then they said it again and came out with Death Magnetic, which was pretty good, not amazing, but still pretty good. So I'm hoping Korn will come out with something alright, that's all I'm asking for.This Message Edited On 04.30.09
When people like you have to ask why they have become irrelevant.
pretty boring band
I actually hope that this is going to be good. Although they're new albums haven't been all that good, they definitely have not been bad either. I actually liked quite a few songs off Untitled.
When people like you have to ask why they have become irrelevant.
as for the band, they have no musical interest whatsoever. sorry Lukas, haha.
Should be interesting.
Korn! Now fortified with twice the meh!
I actually enjoyed Untitled. But still, their s/t was solid as well
i can't believe this many people still give a shit about what korn is doing. 1996 was a long time ago...
i have a feeling this album will suck. we'll see though. these guys fell off like 10 years ago.
Don't know about you guys, but as a huge Korn fan, this is some of the best news EVAR :D
It's also 5 years old.
Hey look! This list is the age of half our userbase!
and four times yours!
These comebacks. Wow.
Don't wow me, homosapient.
so they're going back to ripping off Godflesh?
