KORN Bassist Interviewed At U.K. OZZFEST - Part 1

A couple of weeks ago at the U.K. edition of Ozzfest, Roadrunner Records sat down with KORN bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu and decided to take a different approach to the usual interviews with bands at festivals. In the player below, you will see the first half of Roadrunner's interview with Fieldy using a brand new "random question generator — a game of Jenga littered with random questions designed to give us a bit of an insight to the presonalities behind your fave bands.

In this clip, Fieldy fills us in on things such as his favorite smell, his childhood memories, how he would describe himself and his least favorite thing about himself.

KORN made a deliberate return to its musical roots on its latest album, "Korn III - Remember Who You Are", which arrived on July 13 and follows up 2007's untitled eighth studio album. The band even recruited old friend and producer Ross Robinson, who worked on the band's 1994 debut and 1996's "Life Is Peachy", to produce the new record.

Davis told Billboard.com in June that KORN "hit a wall creatively with all the experimentation" on its last effort, a fact perhaps represented in the album's less-than-stellar sales.

KORN also courted controversy on 2005's "See You On The Other Side" by working with songwriting team The Matrix, known for their work with AVRIL LAVIGNE.

"Remember Who You Are" is the band's first album with independent label Roadrunner Records after a two-record stint with EMI Music.

The first single and video from the album is called "Oildale (Leave Me Alone)". The clip was shot in the downtrodden California town of Oildale, near where KORN was formed in Bakersfield.
