Korn frontman talks about new album in Revolver interview

The new Korn album is now being mixed and is expected to be ready for a mid-summer release. Korn frontman Jonathan Davis and bassist "Fieldy" Arvizu sat down recently with Revolver magazine for an interview. Check out some choice excerpts from that chat below. The band's drummer, Ray Luzier, was interviewed by Harmony Central at NAMM last week. Watch that chat below.

"We experimented with a lot of cool stuff on our last two records [2005's 'See You On The Other Side' and 2007's untitled effort], but we didn't want to do another record like that," Davis explained. "So we said, 'Let's strip it back again. Let's do this as a four-piece and make it real raw like the old stuff."

Korn's latest work was produced by Ross Robinson, who also produced the band's first two albums, 1994's "Korn" and 1996's "Life is Peachy".

"We figured if we're gonna go back [to the early Korn sound], we should do it with Ross," said Fieldy. "And it was great. Even though we hadn't seen him in years, it felt just like old times."

He added, "We made sure that every song we were working on had everything that represents the integrity that you hear on [Korn's 1994 debut]. There's on faster, really heavy song that's pretty different for us, but the rest is a combination of everything we were in '93. It's funky; it's heavy; it's melodic. It's everything, man. It's Korn."

The new CD was recorded last October at the band's own studio. "We recorded everything on tape, just like we did in the old days," said Davis. "And we didn't stack four or five vocal parts like I usually do. I'm singing one part for every song, which was scary. It's just me and the microphone, and you can really hear the emotion."
