Korn will be releasing the band's new album - and 11th studio release overall - titled "The Paradigm Shift" this coming October 1st, 2013.

"The Paradigm Shift" features the return of former member Brian "Head" Welch, who previously left the band to pursue a career in Christian books and music.

Hope this one goes back to their unique sound, instead of trying to be industrial with pure garbage as previous album.

When I first started highschool (their first two albums) these guys were in their prime. But the peak of their fame (3rd album) saw their decline in substance as well.

My tastes were taking me away from Korn by '98 anyway but from '05 to present they've really been scraping the bottom...

Since Welch is back I'll check out the samples on iTunes for old time's sake. I'd like to see them make decent music but after dubstep it's hard to image them escaping the abyss.

As a diehard fan this album title is my 2nd least favorite of all of them ( 1st life is peachy), lyrically from the beginning the well has yet to run dry, they have always been consistent outside the evoloutin record, sound wise they tried some stuff, dipped a bit from untouchables but parh of totality was such an odd mix and orchastration for this band it eventually worked for them.
Now with brian back i expect the band to really kick it in, the peak of the band for me was issues, the bottom was evolution.
Expect a really good effort here.

I own all their studio albums and I'm really looking forward to this. 'Path' was good but burned very quickly(I can't even listen to it anymore)..Korn III had a couple good tracks(really just the 1st half of album) on it. I loved 'Untitled'..'SYOTOS' was ok.Really a mixed bag& the best they could do@the time(Davids drumming was boring though).I loved 'Mirror','Issues','Peachy'&'ST'....'Leader'&'Untouchables' were mixed bags for me. Welcome back HEAD!

@Mr Singh - You're that Riotact666 idiot that posts on blabbermouth all the time with the same comment over and over again for all the bands you "don't like". Are you like 12 years old or something. I hope blabbermouth eventually bans you cause you're nothing but a troll with no life!

Maybe this means the new album won't suck as much as everything they've done since he and David left the band.

Correction, everything that they've done after Head and David left the band that Skrillex didn't write.
