Korn Commence Work On New Album With TLC Producer

KORN have commenced work on their new studio album with producer Dallas Austin, who has previously worked with TLC, MADONNA and MICHAEL JACKSON, among others. "The writing is going really good, we have wrote [sic] at least five songs already," KORN frontman Jonathan Davis said in a Jan. 28 online posting. "It's really tight, heavy, headbangin' shit.

"We are now working with Dallas Austin, he is one bad-ass producer - one of the best we have ever worked with. We are doin' some crazy, heavy, trippy shit with him.

"This album is gonna be slammin'.

KORN's last release, "Greatest Hits, Vol. 1" (Immortal/Epic), featuring highlights from the first 10 years of the band's recording career, was certified gold in December by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of 500,000 copies.

In addition to KORN's biggest songs, "Greatest Hits" also includes two brand-new covers - a remake of CAMEO's "Word Up" and a medley of PINK FLOYD's "Another Brick In The Wall, Parts 1, 2, & 3".

KORN are also planning on releasing a live DVD featuring footage mainly from last summer's Projekt Revolution Tour.

Well thats cool. I think korn should keep on progressing musically. f*** what the media says about any band. a true fan sticks by their favorite band no matter how many times they change. i own everything Korn has put out and damnit they seem to get right every single time. i haven't heard a song that doesn't stink. take for instance "word up" i think the orignal is completly cheesy. fer some reason it sounds great. i dunno whatever. Later yall. KORN FUNKIN ROCKS.

In their never ending quest to combine just the right mix of two different styles they are taking what's probably the biggest gamble possible . Working with TLC's former producer . If nothing else it's the ballsiest move I've heard of in a long time . If they do it just right this could turn into the biggest CD of their career , but everybody from the producer to the studio engineer's to the band it's self will have to truly be in their zone nothin less than A+-GAME . Let's see if they pull it off . I'm crossing my fingers .

Im with Blackdog on this one...Korn are very far from the best band ever in my opinion, and they've churned out some weak songs in the past...and none of their records are as strong as the first 1....still their guitar sound, while simple, does create a good atmosphere, the drummer is skilled and the bassist, despite being a total ass, is also very capable...im a betting man so i'll say korn have a 50/50 shot at making a decent record...my concern is the lyrics.....y'all wanna single..., while sorta funny, could have been a million times more clever and thought out....more power to korn for being inovators but can they pull out of this spiral of progressively less interesting albums streak? we'll see..........

Thats why there still here, there worst selling album(untouchables) is a bigger accomplishment than whatever you plan on doing in your lives, True musicians don't go nagging about other bands, so you guys must not be in a band and if you are you must suck because you rag on every band that finally made it and is on the radio and makes money, bunch of posers.

Can we all atleast agree to the fact that this is definitley going to be a grand experiment.Dallas Austin is a legendary producer with insane ability but this is a 1st time thing not only for him but Metal in general . This is the vary 1st time I've ever heard the suggestion of a r&b/hip hop producer working with a Metal band the size of KoRn , much less new metal as their referd to . One way or the other this could be the start of a new era in Rock /Metal in general , something totaly new , don't say I didn't warn you . In the mean time let's sit back and see what happen's right now it's too early to tell .

In any event skat and Rap have the same origin although one rose from the other . It's an old Jazz thing going back to the 1900's threw the 1930's . The rag time period you can look it up in any library . All you have to do is listen .

the guitar playing is simple..so is hatebreeds and a bunch of other "GOOD" bands, i play bass myself but i can play alot of korn songs on guitar as well as songs by bands you would defend to the grave, just like kornology is....

rap does suck, though korn dont do that so much anymore...bassist made a rap album, he IS a good bassist though...you may not like them because of their simplicity but your acting like someones out to get you...calm down,

some people here like korn, some people love korn and some people hate korn...people tend to go one of those ways...is accepting that too hard for some of you or what?

And Drew, maybe you should watch Some of korns dvd's if you think head and munky suck and guitar, they do 20 minute guitar solos, idd like to see you try to do half of it. Brian has been playing guitar his whole life, with his dad and fieldy's dad. Just because they dont put guitar solos on their records doesnt mean he cant, i suggest watching it for yourself. ; ) enjoy both the albums.

Lets face it, nobody can judge korn or thier music, realistically. Unless SOMEBODY has a direct contact with them and has talked to them on a daily basis you really can't say sh**. Close mindedness and judging are the very perspectives that lead to much more detremental effects and reprahcusions. Just likr Metalica or Manson have grown and proggresed in thier own ways musically, so too has korn evolved to a point where some people have a hard time comprehending whats going on with thier favorite band that they think they know everyhting about. So here's a solution (i know it's hard to actually go in a pro-active direction) lets just let the musicians make the music and make thier OWN creative chioces and go into new directions and we as people who haven't sold billions of albums and toured around the world countles times just sit back and enjoy what they do!!!!!!!

sorry blackdog but those 3 fine bands did not start nu-metal either. I would say
the closest thing to korn in the early nineties was bands like Infectous Grooves,
Rage Against The Machine, Later Biohazard, Prong they had kind of a beat to
their metal.

Really, they died after their first album. it was... Almost original back then. Now it is just the same f***ing thing over and over. And MadK, Korn didnt save metal, it either stabbed it in the face or walked over and p***ed on its grave. Now, all you little f***ing middle schoolers who listen to korn, get your f***ing faces up from the ground and see the obvious. Korn sucks ASS.

Ozzy sucks balls, why dont you do the world a favor and kill yourself right now. Go do it, hurry hurry. Hair metal sucks, f***er f***y, it sucks hard. Korn is the same as hair metal, though. Nu Metal and Hair metal are the same thing. Pop metal. It is sad that you actually think that Korn is heavy. If you want hard music, listen to f***ing Decree. And, since I know this will be said sometime, Korn is not f***ing hardcore. I know that all you little mallcore f***s pop boners for NIN, Manson, Slipknot and Korn, but they all suck. And NIN is a disgrace to industrial music. So, with this said, burn in hell. Burn like you've never burned before.

You have proven yourself to be grade-a dipsh**. NIN coppied Skinny Puppy. No s at the end, b****. Throbbing gristle made Industrial, not NIN OR Skinny puppy. And on the most influential bands in industrial, NIN is like at the bottom. None of the industrial artists pay any f***ing attention to NIN, unless you count Manson as industial. And if you do, you have proven yourself to be the stupidest human in existance. NIN is a sellout band, and Reznor f***ed over everyone in the industrial scene. Cevin Key and Ohgr got f***ed over by b****y little reznor. Frontline Assembly was more influential to industrial than f***ing NIN. Much more. Dont talk about a type of music you dont know sh** about. Do you even know who Einsturzende Neubauten is? Do you know who Genesis P. Orrige is? Probably not. f*** you.

Listen up fa**ots, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news (fake, I love it)

Korn is not metal. It is nothing more that alternative rock, also called Nu-metal. Nu-metal is a wrongly labeled genre to classify hard alternative rock. The attributes to this class of rock usually includes over-use of low power chords, low-tuned guitars, simplistic guitar riffs, angtsy lyrics, the obvious lack of solos (some nu-metal bands are trying to play them, failing horribly in comparison to real metal) and follows an alternative rock song structure. Sadly (for you) Korn fits all of these points with ease. Nu-metal is in no way REAL metal.

So then what is true metal? It's hard to come by if you don't know what it is. Real metal is more complex than alternative rock in every way imaginable. Guitarwork is more challenging to play, being much more variated and melodic. The frontman's singing is very often MUCH more ranged in singing pitch. The last, and often most important reason, is the song structure. Metal follows it's own. unlike nu-metal.

Bands that are not metal: Slipknot, Korn, Mudvayne, Disturbed, and so on and so on....

Just because a band is loud, play power chords, and screams alot, are they metal? No.

Are those old Hair Metal bands like Guns 'n Roses, KISS, and Poison metal? No. In no way did those relate to metal. Nothing could be farther from it. That is called Glam Rock.

If you wish to know what real metal bands are, then IM me on AIM at the name radiodeathcamp. I will teach you the ways of true metal.

I only wish I could teach you the errors of your ways, especially the idea that fans think Korn is 'Hardcore'. How can a band that has sold out to appeal to absolutely anyone ages 9-15 (who brainwashed by the media), be considered awesomely badass?

Listen to some Iron Maiden, Iced Earth or King Diamond. Who are you to tell me I don't know anything about metal when you don't even understand what metal is? Don't be a media whore, get into music that isn't widely accepted as the most popular band at your local middle school. You have to grow up sometime.
