  KORN SET TO RELEASE TENTH STUDIO ALBUM ON DECEMBER 5th
29th September 2011

korn




KORN are set to release their tenth studio album, 'The Path of Totality' on December 5th.

'The Path of Totality' is an experimental album which finds Korn shifting gears and exploring new territory. The band have collaborated with some of the leading dubstep and electronic producers in the world, including Skrillex, Excision, Datsik, Noisia, Kill the Noise, and 12th Planet.

The result is something completely new, yet utterly and definitively Korn. Leave it to a band like Korn to continue to reinvent itself two decades deep into its career.

"The title The Path of Totality refers to the fact that in order to see the sun in a full solar eclipse, you must be in the exact right place in the exact right time," Korn frontman Jonathan Davis explained. "That's how this album came together. I think all the producers feel the same way. I'm not sure it could ever happen again"

The band's recent (and much lauded) collaboration with dubstep's hottest producer, Skrillex, titled 'Get Up!', was the surprise rock hit of the summer, the buzz of which started in Coachella's dance tent in April 2011, when Jonathan and Munky joined Skrillex on stage for a show-stealing unannounced performance of the song.

Adds James 'Munky' Shaffer, 'Get Up' started as a bit of an experiment, but we had such an amazing response from our fans and had such a great time collaborating that a full album of tracks came together in a couple of months. We couldn't wait to get to the studio every day to finish the next song."

Some of the song titles from 'The Path of Totality' are: 'Narcissistic Cannibal', 'Burn The Obedient', 'Illuminati', 'Kill Mercy Within', and 'Chaos Lives In Everything'.

The album will be released in two configurations: as a standard 11 song CD and a special edition CD that will include bonus tracks as well as a DVD of 'The Encounter', a full length video concert of Korn's once in a lifetime performance in the middle of a 900ft long crop circle in a Bakersfield wheatfield.

The complete concert, previously seen last year on TV and online in an abbreviated form, will be offered in its entirety to those who purchase the deluxe version.


NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
