KORN is unleashing a new record this Fall, the first with guitarist Brian “Head” Welch since 2003’s TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR. I was in the camp that always figured that Head would eventually return, but it’s hard to believe it’s already been a decade(!). THE PARADIGM SHIFT will be released on October 1 via Prospect Park, the result of recording sessions that took place in Bakersfield and Los Angeles, CA with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, JAY-Z, HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD).

About THE PARADIGM SHIFT, guitarist Munky said…

“It’s a term encompassing different perspectives. You can view a piece of art from one angle and it takes on a certain image. If you look from another angle, it’s a completely different image. We liken that to KORN in 2013. With Head back in the fold, all of the elements fans have loved since day one are there, but we’re interpreting them from a new perspective. It’s a bigger, brighter, and bolder KORN.”James “Munky” Shaffer

I’ve been digging KORN since their first album, and saw them live for the first time when they toured with MEGADETH, FEAR FACTORY, and FLOTSAM & JETSAM back in ’95. Always interested in hearing how they evolve.
