New album 'The Serenity of Suffering' is due later this year
Korn have released the video for new track ‘Insane’, working with director Ryan Valdez for the visuals.
The band’s 12th album ‘The Serenity of Suffering’ is due later this year on October 21, with Slipknot’s Corey Taylor set to make a guest appearance on the record.
The video focuses on post-mortem photography (or momento mori), the practice of preserving loved ones after death with images. ‘Insane’ follows the release of ‘Rotting In Vain’, with both singles set to appear on the upcoming album; ‘The Serenity of Suffering’ was produced by Nick Raskulinecz.
Metal Hammer recently reported that Corey Taylor’s involvement on the record was revealed by Korn guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer, who says that he “really lets loose” on the song that he guests on.
He also went on to describe the sound of the upcoming record, and said it was one of their heaviest albums yet. “On a heaviness scale of one to 10 with 10 being the 1994 self-titled, this album is a definite nine.”
The new album is also the second record to feature guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch since his return to the band. Describing working with Welch once more, Shaffer said: “When Head came back to us on the last record, it was our way of getting the wheels greased. Now everything is well-oiled and the machine works really well.”
