KORN plan to release their sixth album, "Take A Look In The Mirror", in November.
"We've got that spark in us again," frontman Jonathan Davis told Rolling Stone. "This is a really aggressive record. More edgy. The last record we were experimenting. This album is back down to the basics and heavy grooves and getting people pumped. You'll have a lot of screaming on this one."
Davis continued, "I don't scream just for the sake of screaming. When we sit down to write, we just write whatever comes out. I was going through some rough times. It's basically about relationships and fuckin' hate."
The band, working without a producer for the first time, recorded 10 songs before setting off on this summer's Ozzfest tour, and will return return to the studio to record two or three more. "It was time for us to do our own [record]," Davis said. "It's been really great, really kicked back. It's not like being in the sterile environment of a regular studio. We can kick back, jump in my swimming pool, whatever we want to do."
"There's a song called 'Everything I Know'," Davis revealed, "that's about when you're fighting with your girl, and how when you've been together for so long, things can just get shitty . . . And then there's ones about people I just cannot stand and want to kill. I have a real problem with people."
Also set to appear on the album is a track called "Right Now". Said Davis, "That's a song about waking up and wanting to kill everybody."
