On November 15, John B. Logsdon (a.k.a. Johnny Thrash) of "The Afternoon Buzz", which airs weekdays from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on KBZS-FM / 106.3 The Buzz in Wichita Falls, Texas, conducted an interview with KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch. You can now listen to the chat in two parts at 1063TheBuzz.com.
KORN captured the No. 1 spot on the Active Rock airplay chart with its single "Never Never" from the band's eleventh studio album, "The Paradigm Shift" (Prospect Park). At the same time, "Never Never" has vaulted to the No. 2 position on the Mainstream Rock airplay chart.
"The Paradigm Shift" sold 46,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 8 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on October 8 via Prospect Park.
"The Paradigm Shift" is the first KORN disc to feature Brian "Head" Welch since 2003's "Take A Look In The Mirror" and follows up 2011's dubstep experiment, "The Path Of Totality".
Welch recently told Rolling Stone that the new album has "the old KORN vibe, but with a new twist . . . The end product is a really good mix of old KORN mixed with some new elements. It's got a fresh new KORN 2013 sound."
Welch left KORN in 2005 after he converted to Christianity and got off drugs. He rejoined them for a handful of live performances last year before officially becoming part of the lineup again in early 2013.
