Following the absolutely horrid amalgam of pop, buttrock, and dubstep that was ‘Never Never,’ things didn’t look good for Korn‘s new album Paradigm Shift. My hopes were high due to returning guitarist Brian Head Welch, but the single didn’t follow through, and in fact, featured little to no guitar. Disappointing.
Their new single ‘Love & Meth’ however, sounds like it will be a return to the Untouchables-era Korn sound. It might be too soon to get hopes to high, but it’s good to know that there will be some good material on Paradigm Shift.
A sample of ‘Love & Meth’ can be heard over at Loudwire, wherein Head says that the feedback from initial press streams have painted the album as “the best album since Issues or Untouchables.” Somehow I doubt it, considering how neither of those albums have a song as bad as ‘Never Never,’ but who knows, maybe that’s just one song.
Elsewhere, Korn have also posted a brief behind-the-scenes clip from the ‘Love & Meth‘ video below:
Paradigm Shift will be out October 8th on Prospect Park.
