Korn fans are getting a sense of how the new album is going to sound, vocalist Jonathan Davis has given some hints about the sound of their highly-anticipated album The Nothing and even compared it’s sound to Queen.
Having just released the first single from the album called “You’ll Never Find Me,” Davis explained that the new full-length is an abstract look on “an extraordinary force” within the world we live in.
He said: “It’s not something we can choose to navigate, but rather an awareness of this presence that surrounds us with every breath, as if we are being watched at every moment,” adding: “It’s the place where black and white energies attach themselves to our souls, and shape our emotion, choices, perspective and ultimately our very existence.”
He gave even more insight about the deeply personal album and gave fans a little more understanding as to what it will sound like.
He told Kerrang!, that he had been experimenting with the vocal side of the album a lot, and that he was influenced by artists such as Queen and Electric Light Orchestra.
Davis said: “It’s just a completely different beast. Musically, I think it’s leaps and bounds from that. The guys had fun working with Nick Raskulinecz again, but you could tell my level of involvement from that to that,” adding: “I mean, shit, on this record there’s some songs that’ve got 20-something vocal tracks on it – I went full-on Queen and ELO! They were some of my influences and I wanted to do some of those big vocal beds. I took my time, I was really into making the vocals sound amazing. I did all kinds of recording shit that I learned over the years, so this wasn’t a week like the last record.”
