Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch has paid tribute to Chuck Mosley, saying that the ex-Faith No More singer and his former bandmates “were a huge part” of Korn‘s “everyday lives” in the early 1990s.

Mosley died last week at the age of 57. He sang on Faith No More‘s first two albums, 1985’s “We Care A Lot” and 1987’s “Introduce Yourself”. He was fired from the band and replaced by Mike Patton, who remains the group’s singer to this day.

In an Instagram post yesterday (Monday, November 13), Welch wrote: “I remember living in a tiny apartment in Burbank, California, living with most of the guys who would later form Korn. They were in their funk rock band called L.A.P.D. I was just hanging out drinking beer trying to figure out life. They were so into the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Faith No More, and I wanted nothing to do with those bands. Continue reading »

It’s a blend of funk, fusion, and rock. I can’t wait to share it with you.” Continue reading »

Said Korn singer Jonathan Davis: “‘Black Is The Soul’ is a song about being pulled away from the right path and the video reflects that experience of trying to navigate those conflicting emotions.” Guitarist James “Munky Shaffer added: “I feel that this songwriting and production paired with the aesthetic look of the video shows a maturity and growth from the band that is continually evolving.” Continue reading »
