Jonathan Davis Says Material For New Korn Album Has Impressed Him More Than “Serenity Of Suffering”


Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis has spent much of the past few months touring in support of his solo album while his bandmates have been working on new material that will eventually become the group’s thirteenth studio album. Speaking recently with Metal Hammer about the new songs thus far, he commented:

“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. 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 if the material would find the band going in a new direction or continue the Korn sound, Davis replied:

“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.'”
