The Paradigm Shift follows The Path Of Totality, a dubstep-heavy record that won critical acclaim by the bucket load.
Fieldy: “That kind of music [dubstep] already has bass. I knew that, so I really didn’t want to put any more bass into my mix. Then you had all of the weird sounds, and I really didn’t want to interrupt those, so I had to just find little holes to do little areas of my style. It was challenging because I want to complement everything, and it was a fine line. I needed to find a balance. But it all worked out cool.”
Ray: “Korn always had an element of electro and hip-hop, and on that last one we took that to the extreme.”
Munky: “[The Paradigm Shift] is good because everybody’s involved. I didn’t have that experience on the last album; I wasn’t there for any of the mixes, and that’s why you can’t hear my guitar [on Path of Totality].”
