What do you hope from Korn's next album?

Wed, Jul 20, 2011 at 6:28 PM

Here's what I hope:

1. They find a replacement for Head.
2. Jon finds some new topics to sing about.
3. Something with the heaviness of Korn III yet experimental like Issues or Untitled.

    I'd like to see more of the mature, philosophical lyrics come back, like on some of the tracks found on SYOTOS and Untitled. Also, maybe more of an experimental album reminiscent to Issues or Untouchables and something that doesn't sound as forced as Korn III - something more free-flowing...if that makes any sense.

    Another guitar player would be nice. Different lyrical themes would be nice as well...oh I and I want to hear some scat from JD on it too, I dont believe he did any on k3.

    Makes perfect sense! I want experimental like Untouchables type stuff, but in todays world :)

    with every album sounding like untouchables Il be happy, it was their most mature album lyrically and musically, this was a real masterpiece, it showed that emotions and philosphical thoughs can go along verywell as well as heaviness with musical experiments and industrial hints

    I hope it's gonna be heavy, has some amazing wompwompwomp! (since it's gonna be dubstep and all) and I hope the lyrical themes should be changed a bit. I would like to see the mature lyrics from the Untitled return, like said before. I'm not sure if that's gonna happen though. (since it's gonna be dubstep and all)
    But most of all it should be heavy, experimental and awesome and all.

    If they do decide not to make a dubstep album afterall (Fieldy didn't seem to be so sure about making a full dubstep influenced album when he was in the Netherlands) I hope they'll do something like they did in the Issues/Untouchables era, but kind of experimental like Untitled. Also lyric-wise I hope it's gonna be the same as I said earlier in the post.

    Yup, that's about it.

    As I said, new topics to sing about would be pretty cool. Untitled had some pretty deep lyrics in some parts, and yet in Korn 3, Jon went back to his angry lyrics. I want to see more deep lyrics. Not just his problems, but the world's problems. As long as he doesn't decide to sing about politics, I'll be fine.

    Also, hopefully if they find a replacement for Head, they can go back to making awesome guitar riffs.

    I am dying for bagpipes. That and JD's scatting make Korn. K3 was the only album that had none of that. Also I think Ray should slow down on the drumming. K3 lacked breathing room, which is a reason it sounded forced. JD has said he's written happy stuff but doesn't use it. K3 was way too forced emotionally as well, Ross made JD revisit stuff that he should be over by now (thanks a lot Ross). But I feel JD doesn't use that happy stuff because the fans would think it isn't "Korn" (like the general reaction to untitled). I would really like some deep lyrics on this one. That is why Issues is my favorite. Very self-reflective, not like K3 where Jon went back to yelling at people who did bad stuff to him (no offense JD). But I don't have any idea what to expect from the new Dub-Korn album. Get Up had some nice quotable lyrics, the chorus was deeper than anything on K3. We can only hope. As for the lineup, I still think David should come back. I don't like the idea of adding members. To me, Korn was something special- five friends from Bako looking for escape. Ray coming in just seemed out of place, y'know? Like, the guys went through so much together, and he steps in just like that. So no, I don't want a replacement for Head, cause no one can replace him. I'd rather have the backup guitarist out-of-sight . No offense to the back-up krew. I'd prefer the krew komplete at some time in the future, if Head can get back on his feet and if David can realize he was way better off in Korn.

    But that's a lot to expect in the near future, so maybe if just one of things happens, I'll be happy.
    Then, now, and forever... A.D.W.D.A.K.!!!

    ^I agree. KoRn really needs to stop singing about their problems, and start singing about world issues.

    The next album should cover topics like eating disorders, autism, obsessive compulsive disorder, paranoia, seven deadly sins, war, life and death situations, the current state of the world, suicide, and organized religion.

    KoRn has always been very introspective, though... I personally prefer outward-looking lyrics, but that has never been Jonathan's style. The closest he came to that was with Untitled, which I loved.

    You see, that's the problem with Korn. As much as I like the band, it gets a little boring to hear about Jon's problems every album. I respect the guy, but he needs to sing about other stuff. I thought Untitled was a great album lyrically, and then Korn III came around, and he went back to his angry lyrics.

    i'm a fan of long songs (8+ minutes), i'd love to hear Korn do more of that, maybe with some unusual song structures too. i think some more acoustic guitar would be awesome as well

    i'm sure they won't disappoint with what they do next! i do love the direction they're going with the dubstep

  17. Re: What do you hope from Korn's next album?

    I think, along with others here, that there should be more of Jonathan's scatting, bagpipes, and stronger lyrics.

    I can't say much that hasn't already been pointed out.

    ^ Agreed with both of these.

    I thought I read that they had a bunch of new stuff and Ross took them in a different direction. Ross pushed Jon so hard.. Also, the point of remembering who they were, getting back to their roots, was angry music dealing with Jon's problems was it not? I believe they'll take a different approach with the next cd and hope it will have alot more musical experimentation. I still greatly appreciate that Jon still shares himself the way he does in his music. I'd like to hear more songs like the one's Jon posted on Soundcloud.

    'Something with the heaviness of Korn III yet experimental like Issues or Untitled'

    That.

    Also I would love to hear JD scatting more again. bagpipes would be cool. Some stronger lyrics than on Get Up (don't get me wrong, i like the track lol). But i'm excited to hear in which direction they'll take the album. Oh and I would like to hear some cool freaky guitar sounds again.

Get the latest from Korn!
