View Full Version : New KoRn Album - "The Path of Totality"

KOЯN announced today that they will release their tenth studio album, The Path of Totality on December 6.

But this one is unlike any KOЯN record. It's even unlike any record released before.

The Path of Totality is an experimental album which finds KOЯN shifting gears and exploring new territory. That should hardly come as a shock to the band's diehard fans, as Korn exploded onto the scene in the'90s and established themselves as hard rock game changers from that point on.

For The Path of Totality, the band 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.

That performance generated the start of a deafening buzz. The track has sold over 150,000 downloads, while the lyric video has generated nearly two million views and counting. The song, a Top 10 rock radio hit, still continues to be one of the best testing songs on the format over 24 weeks after its release.

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 mind-blowing, once in a lifetime performance in the middle of a 900 ft long crop circle in a wheat field in Bakersfield. 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.

I really don't give a damn what Korn does with their career, but I'm getting sick of this dubstep bandwagon.

They announced some shows too, but I think the openers are all dubstep related


Which makes me hate Europe even more for getting a KoRn/Dimmu Borgir tour last year

Artist, Borgore. And they know what's good for them. Dubstep is popular now, meaning more money for Sumerian, meaning they can keep supporting good bands, like The Faceless.

While at the same time its sad that Asking Alexandria is the biggest Sumerian band, as far as popularity, and album sales go.

Honestly, I thought get up kicked ass. And when they announced the EP, I thought it was an interesting idea but the Idea of a FULL LENGTH LP of this dupstep-Korn is just an awful Idea.

Psyched for this album! Hope they do a tour for this album and come to Wisconsin. Maybe I'll finally get to see them live. Wonder how they'd do the songs without their dubstep collaborators though?

EDIT: Just saw the tour dates someone posted, hope they add more to that list.

I've been wanting to see Korn is a smaller place. I'll decide when I see the setlist.

Edit: Oooh, those prices aren't cheap.

I haven't cared about Korn since 8th grade (coincidentally right before TALITM which was the album they started being bad by even Korn standards) but still....

...now they're doing dubstep? Christ... this is a worse idea than Lulu.

Why lie to their fans? Just call it See You on the Other Side II and get it over with. It's the same goddamn thing, just with dubstep.

I've always thought it was kinda lame and pretty egotistical for bands to have "meet and great" packages. Tons of bands genuinely like to meet their fans after the show.

Yea really. I mean is it three songs of your choosing or just whenever they feel like putting you onstage. I like for the Winds Of Plague tour and the Veil Of Maya tour the CHEAP VIP packages you get a Q&A, meet every band, watch the soundcheck, and the entire show from side stage.

Plus I mean to the comment about VIP packages I understand why some bands would do them but most of the time they are way too overpriced. Like I think it was the 2009 KISS tour the VIP package was $1,000 dollors.

What concerns me is, are their whole shows going to have dubstep bullshit added? Like will all their songs have shit added, or will they play them all normal? I sure is hell won't go anywhere near a show that features all dubstep shit.

The reason I ask, is they're having dubstep "bands" open for them.

When I seen them this year at Graspop, they just used the Dubstep for the song Get Up, so I'm guessing it will be the same. They have a DJ dude on stage anyway, I'm guessing this will give him more of a presence :P

Hahaha. There's my retard moment of the day. Since they weren't calling him Jonathan I just assumed he was some jobber that joined the band in the last couple years. Most of the time the personal touches of a meet and greet get farmed out to the "lesser" members. Like when "KISS" does something, and then Tommy Thayer shows up.
