"It's always fun to try to create new sounds," declares Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer.
That's exactly what Korn has been doing since their landmark self-titled debut in 1994. Over the course of their career, they've honed that skill, especially on Follow the Leader and Untouchables. However, Korn have pushed the envelope further than ever before on their brand new offering, The Path of Totality due out December 6th, 2011 via Roadrunner Records. Not only is the album Korn's most groundbreaking to date, it's also their most infectious—in a catalog of classics.
The Path of Totality sees Korn collaborating with dubstep wizards Skrillex, Excision, Downlink, Feed Me, Noisia, 12th Planet, and Kill the Noise to bridge the gap between electronic music and heavy metal in a manner that's never been done before. It's fresh, fiery, and focused. The songs will remain etched in your psyche forever due to a combination of gorgeous guitar dissonance, a dubstep embrace, and singer Jonathan Davis's most vivid, vibrant, and vicious lyrics ever.
This record is a turning point for heavy and electronic music. You need it…
