Default New Korn LP Almost Finished- VH1

Korn Making New LP Without Giving It Too Much Thought

'We went in and didn't think we just recorded it, and that was that,' Jonathan Davis says.

Korn want their new album to hark back to their old, aggressive selves so much that they're contemplating a very reflective title.

Take a Look in the Mirror is on the shortlist of titles for the band's follow-up to last year's

Untouchables, bassist Fieldy told Columbus, Ohio's WBZX-FM on Sunday. With 10 songs already completed, Korn's sixth, self-produced LP is expected to drop in November.

"We're excited about this album," singer Jonathan Davis said backstage at the Ozzfest stop in Dallas. "We didn't try to overthink it. It's just down and dirty. It's aggressive Korn screaming again."

"It's going back to our roots," added drummer David Silveria. "More riff-based heavier rock, straightforward, less layered. Just ass-kicking metal."

Among the songs finished and slated for the LP are "Did My Time," which appeared in the film "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" (see "Korn Do 'Time' For Lara Croft"), and their cover of Metallica's "One," which they performed on "mtvICON: Metallica" in May (see "Avril, Snoop Dogg, Lisa Marie Presley Bow Down To Metallica").

Korn hope to add about four more songs to the lot, which they'll work on while on Ozzfest. It's fitting that an on-the-go environment should cap Korn's creative process, since, for the new LP, that's also where it began. Earlier this year, Davis used a cross-country trip to inspire him.

"I can't write when I'm home," he explained. "There's too many distractions. So I just cruised out on a bus and drove from one coast to the other and came back and wrote a lot of melody lines and some lyrics."

Korn's decision to produce the album themselves and to revert to their old, wicked ways stems from frustrations with Untouchables, which sold a little over 1.3 million copies a disappointing figure compared with their previous releases. The band said not only did Untouchables sound too polished, but the songs didn't translate well live.

"What we need most from producers is to keep us motivated and offer outside opinions," Silveria said. "Now, I think that between our crew and sound engineer, who's with us in the studio all the time they've known us for so many years we look to them for their reaction half the time we're writing. We've done this long enough by now that we feel like we can do it and critique it ourselves."

While Korn took almost three years to finalize Untouchables, the new one should be done in a matter of months.

"On the last record, [producer Michael Beinhorn] was very, very anal," Davis said. "He wanted everything perfect, and that's not making a rock band. You want some screw-ups and stuff. So [this time] we went in and didn't think we just recorded it, and that was that. It was done."

Korn will hunker down and put the finishing touches on the LP after Ozzfest concludes August 28 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
