Korn‘s music video for the song ‘Black Is The Soul’ can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s latest album, “The Serenity Of Suffering”, which came out at the end of October.

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.”

‘Black Is The Soul’ was reportedly written on the birthday of Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch‘s mother. Welch said in a track-by-track video interview: “The working title for that song was ‘Mary Ellen Thrash’, ’cause her name is Mary Allen and then it turned into ‘Black Is The Soul’, which is kind of creepy after it being named after my mom.” Continue reading »

Korn are back with their second album since the return of Brian “Head” Welch and show the band has fully settled into the groove and style they pioneered before “Head” left the band but have also turned things a bit darker and heavier.

As Korn approaches the 25 year mark as a band, it would be hard to imagine someone not being familiar with them.  The nu-metal band from Bakersfield, California has likely sold somewhere close to 40 million records worldwide and twelve of the band’s albums have reached the Billboard top ten, with eleven becoming some type of platinum.  On the award side, the band has received two Grammys and two MTV Video Music Awards.  Quite a bit of success for sure.  Success often brings with it problems and the band has seen its share over the years, most notably with the departure of Brian “Head” Welch in 2005 after battling drug addiction and becoming a Christian.  Following a performance where he joined the band on stage in 2012, Head played a few more shows with the band and then rejoined the band and would be part of the band’s eleventh studio album, The Paradigm Shift.  Supporting The Paradigm Shift meant a series of tours and festivals which helped further solidify the newly reformed lineup and the band partnered with Nick Raskulinescz for production of The Serenity of Suffering, which debuted in October 2016.

The track is taken from the band’s latest album, “The Serenity Of Suffering”, which was released on October 21. The follow-up to 2013’s “The Paradigm Shift” was helmed by Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz, who has previously worked with Foo Fighters, Deftones, Mastodon and Rush, among others. The CD features a guest appearance by Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor on the song ‘A Different World’.

“The Serenity Of Suffering” marks the band’s return to Roadrunner, which previously released 2010’s “Korn III – Remember Who You Are” and 2011’s “The Path Of Totality”.

The cover art for “The Serenity Of Suffering” was created by acclaimed artist Ron English. It depicts a teenage Korn fan at a dystopian acid-nightmare funfair who is clutching a disembowelled and skeletal version of the doll who adorned 1999’s “Issues”. Continue reading »
