According to The Pulse Of Radio, KORN singer Jonathan Davis revealed in a new interview with the Independent which of the band's dozen studio albums he's the most and least proud of. He explained: "The record I'm most proud of is 'Untouchables'… We spent a lot of money making that record and it took us two years to make; I remember we spent a month just getting drum sounds. [Michael] Beinhorn is my favorite producer ever. He's just got a great ear and he's not afraid to tell you if you suck."
Davis added: "I'd do vocal takes and think they were the best and then he'd tell me to go home because he thought my voice wasn't right. I'd get so mad at him, but I love him. It was so much work. If I can find the footage, I'm going to put a little documentary together about that record because it's a one-of-a-kind that will never be made again."
As for the group's weakest effort, Davis pegged "Korn III: Remember Who You Are", saying, "I think it would have been a much better album if [producer Ross Robinson] hadn't been so fucking hard and let us have a bit of fun… That record sounds forced to me and it took me to a very dark place that I didn't want to go back to."
Davis told The Pulse Of Radio a while back why "Korn III" didn't work for him. "I think with 'Korn III', it was something we wanted to do just to see what happened if we worked with Ross again, and it came out but it seemed kind of forced. Seemed like he was on a mission to take us back to '94, '95. It wasn't a pleasant experience for me. Not that it was Ross's fault, 'cause I love him to death, but I think it was kind of forced. It just proved to us when we did that record that we need to experiment and keep doing what we're doing. We're not scared to try new things and different things."
KORN's twelth and latest album, "The Serenity Of Suffering", arrived last October.
The band's summer trek with STONE SOUR is set to get underway on June 16 in Salt Lake City.
