Back with a new album entitled ‘The Path of Totality’, Korn performed for Walmart Soundcheck. The set list included ‘Chaos Lives In Everything’, ‘Narcisstic Cannibal’, ‘Get Up!’, ‘Way Too Far’, and ‘Falling Away From Me’.
During an interview, they talked about changing their sound, their musical evolution, keeping it fresh and how they’ve matured as musicians since starting out in 1994. “It’s for the greater good of the band. That’s why we did this,” Jonathan Davis said about their new sound. “We wanted to push the boundaries and really open people’s minds. You need fresh ideas to do that.”

NME caught up with Korn, as they discuss their impressive fanbase and returning to the studio to record their ninth album, ‘Korn III: Remember Who You Are’. “When we got together to make this record, we wanted to towards an old-school style of the way we used to record things,” singer Jonathan Davis explained. “It wasn’t necessarily to try and rip off those other records or anything like that, it was just going back to the way we originally used to write together in a small room.” Watch the clip via YouTube below.

Like ‘Hey guys, I can’t talk to you, but this is hard for me, I love you, but I gotta quit and there’s nothing left to talk about. I don’t care about the money. The million dollar contract we’re getting ready to sign, I gotta do something.'” Watch the clip below.

I’m not trying to write a Korn record. I’m trying to do something different, so it’s gonna be different.” Watch the interview below the fold.

Also on the recovering alcoholic’s plate is a new book. “It’s like an inspirational autobiography,” he said. “It’s going to have pictures from my childhood through my teens until now, and people’s jaws are going to be on the ground when they read some of the stories, people are not going to believe I’m still alive. I’ve led the craziest life ever.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
