Festivals2Go.com conducted an interview with KORN drummer Ray Luzier at this year's Rock am Ring festival, which was held June 5-7 in Nürburgring, Germany. Watch the two-minute chat at this location.
KORN has been working on material for a new album with the band's original producer Ross Robinson. The band's frontman Jonathan Davis told The Pulse of Radio that the group intends to get back to the sound of its early CDs. "It's gonna be very raw, it's gonna be old school like the first KORN records," he said. "Basically, it's gonna be recorded as a four-piece band, with just Munky on guitars and Fieldy [bass] and Ray [Luzier; drums] and me. We really want to go back to that old-school vibe. It was just really intense and emotional and, you know, I have a lot of built-up aggression toward certain things that I need to get out for this record."
Davis said that many of the lyrics on the upcoming album will deal with the topic of organized religion.
Ex-KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch left the band after becoming a born-again Christian, and Fieldy discusses his conversion to Christianity in a memoir that was published in March.
The band will be looking for a home for the yet-to-be-titled disc since completing its two-album deal with Virgin Records in 2007.
