KORN have set "Take A Look In The Mirror" as the tentative title for their forthcoming CD, due in November through Immortal/Epic Records.
"We're just about done [recording the album]," bassist Fieldy revealed Sunday (Aug. 3) in an exclusive interview with Scoop of the Columbus, Ohio radio station The Blitz 99.7 FM. "We're actually gonna do something that we never did before. [Singer] Jonathan [Davis]'s got a studio on his [tour] bus, and we're gonna write, like, four more songs on his bus [while touring with Ozzfest 2003]. The record will be out in November, but we've got 10 songs done [so far] that are slamming. We self-produced it — no producer, so it's just raw KORN."
KORN will record "14 or 15 songs" for the follow-up to last year's "Untouchables", including a cover of METALLICA's "One", which the band aired in May at "mtvICON: Metallica", MTV's performance tribute event to METALLICA. "We did at the 'Icon' [special]," said Fieldy. "Some kids have seen it, some haven't, but it just turned out so good, it's gotta go on the record."
Another song that will definitely appear on the upcoming CD is "Did My Time", a track which was used during a scene in the film "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Cradle Of Life", but was not included on the motion picture soundtrack album.
When asked if "Did My Time" was indicative of the direction of the rest of the new material, Fieldy said, "I'd say [the other songs are even] heavier. That's just one song. It's banging — that's all I've gotta say." (Listen to the entire interview in Real Audio at this location.)
KORN's Ozzfest run will conclude on August 28 at Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida.
