New album, old sound: Nu metal's ultimate heroes Korn are back
Nu metal veterans Korn swallow some “hard truths” and crank up the intensity for new album – and this time around, there's no dubstep...
Korn have never been a band to stand still. Early in their career they pioneered the love-it-or-loathe-it nu metal genre, but they then shot off in many directions, the most notable of which was their dabble with dubstep. But on twelfth album The Serenity Of Suffering they’ve perhaps made their bravest move yet – by looking back. Guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer tells us how a fan-cum-producer helped the Bakersfield metallers go back to their roots.
The Serenity Of Suffering is out now via Roadrunner.
