Jonathan Davis talks new Korn album, says new music has “really cool grooves”
Good news, it looks like we have a new Korn album on the way, and it has some "really cool grooves."
It was recently reported that the band's guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer and Brian "Head" Welch had started writing new material for Korn's forthcoming 13th album, and according to the band's frontman Jonathan Davis, the new material is coming together.
Davis revealed the information in a new interview with Metal Hammer, where the vocalist said that he's listened to a lot of the material already, sharing that the next step is putting his vocals on the recorded tracks.
“I’ve listened to a bunch of stuff. There’s been really good ideas, really cool grooves. It really doesn’t start taking place until I get there and glue all the shit together with the arrangements and put my vocals on it.
He continued on to say:
“But they’re working with different producers and we’re gonna do the record and we’ll see – I’m really excited for it. It doesn't suck, I know that. I'm not going, 'Go back, please.' I'm more impressed on these than I was with Serenity Of Suffering, so…"
When asked what fans can expect from the new album, whether that be a continuation of Korn's sound or something different, Davis shared that the answer to that will come later:
"We'll see. Sometimes they write it and then I start fucking with shit and it turns into something different. That's when I come in and they get all pissed off or they just get scared. I'm, like, 'See that feeling right there? That's progress. When you're feeling comfortable, no. I want you to be scared.'"
While we're not sure what to expect from the new album just yet, we can't wait to get our hands on some new music. Korn released their twelfth studio album the Serenity Of Suffering in late 2016.
