KORN's SILVERIA Begins Laying Down Tracks For New Album

KORN's David Silveria is in the studio laying down drum tracks for the follow-up to "Untouchables", frontman Jonathan Davis revealed during an online chat with fans at the Korn.com web site.

"We wanted to get back into the studio to do the album we wanted to do," Davis said. " 'Untouchables' was great, but it was time for us to do a heavy groove album."

When asked if he saw his guitarist Brian "Head" Welch play with LIMP BIZKIT on March 30's Pay-Per-View "Wrestlemania" event, Davis replied, "I saw it. It was kool (sic). Head wanted to do something different, so he helped BIZKIT out. It was all good."

KORN's as-yet-untitled new album will be a self-produced effort, according to Davis, who told the Los Angeles Times recently that the change in the group's approach "is really cool. Don't have someone outside coming over to tell us what we need to do. It's the fastest we've ever worked — three weeks and 10 songs. And it's the tightest the band's ever been. We're getting along so great.

"We're at different places in our lives, and the scene we started has started to die off," Davis added. We're not trying to prove anything. We proved ourselves. This is just about making a good album. It's cool what's happening. We opened up a door that all kinds of bands came through and were accepted. But what happened is the record companies over-saturated the market. So it's really exciting to see new stuff going on."

KORN's next CD may surface as early as this summer to coincide with the group's stint on the Ozzfest tour. In the meantime, Davis is also working on other projects, including having recorded the new TV theme for UPN's "The Twilight Zone", and composing and recording music with composer Richard Gibbs for a DVD "coffee table book," featuring the work of writer-director Clive Barker.
