This time around, there was a different approach, and a whole new sound came out.
Fieldy: “We always take different approaches. This time we got into the studio with all of us together, except for Jon [Davis, vocals]. It was kinda nice that way because we were able to create the music and have the songs for him done, and he could just come in and take a listen. That worked out really good because we got a good chunk of songs done. We wrote 25 songs, so we were able to choose from a big variety."
Ray: “The sound is the heart of Korn. All five of us were in a room off and on for several months. It sounds very 2013, though. It’s a whole other vibe now with Brian back in. Nothing was rushed at all; we let everything happen naturally. This is the first record I’ve made in years where I don’t want to skip any tracks!"
Munky: “Head had a couple of riffs, I had a couple of riffs, and pretty soon we had 20 songs. We recorded 20, and 15 of those will go on the album. We’ve never had that many songs when recording.”
Head: “It’s a good problem to have. Some of them that didn’t make it, we have funny names for songs like Weiner Schnitzel and Bumble Butt, Taco Titties. We had a lot of good songs.”
