Sometimes, you just have to let the artists speak for themselves, so all intentions and ambitions are just out there in the ether. When Korn announced that they were going to make an all-dubstep album (of course!), here’s what lead singer Jonathan Davis had to say about the set, called The Path Of Totality:
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. 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.
Korn bassist Fieldy, on dubstep:
Jonathan loved it [dubstep] and he just got us into it. We feel it’s important to stay current and keep on top of what’s going on.
Right. Korn already has a single out from this affair called “Get Up!” which is produced by Skrillex. The album will also feature production from Excision, Datsik and 12th Planet. May God have mercy on our souls.
