Expect Korn’s next album to be more technical
Korn have wrapped up the final leg of their 20th anniversary tour, and now, the metal guys are concentrating on writing new music. Speaking with Alternative Press, guitarist Brian “Head” Welch dished on what fans can expect from the band’s upcoming album.
“It’s gonna be a more guitar-focused record,” Welch said. “It’s gonna be a little bit more technical, for Korn anyway.”
The upcoming album will mark Korn’s second with Welch back in the fold. Welch was absent from the band for eight years as he pursued a career in Christian music, in which he’s still heavily involved.
Welch says the upcoming album will benefit from the chemistry he’s recaputred with his band mates, especially guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer.
“Me and Munky stopped playing together for eight years when I was gone,” Welch said. “We did the last record (2013’s ‘The Paradigm Shift’), and we just clicked and it was awesome. But to me, we’ve gotten used to each other again.”
He added, “We’re exactly where we want to be as guitar duo brothers.”
Welch added that he hopes the new Korn album will arrive in the fall of 2016.
