More good news from the Korn camp. After their collaboration single with hotter-than-hot Los Angeles dubstep DJ Skrillex, Korn are planning to release a dubstep studio album, expected to dominate the charts later this year.

Speaking to NME this weekend, Korn bassist Fieldy said the band was almost finished with the follow-up to 2010's Korn III: Remember Who You Are: "We've collaborated with six, maybe seven dubstep producers on the new record. I've done my parts, I think Jonathan Davis has a couple of vocal takes still to do, but it's almost done."

These dubstep producers/DJ includes such names as Kill The Noise, Excision, Skillets and 12th Planet.

Fieldy also said Jonathan Davis is responsible for inspiring the band's new dubstep direction. "Jonathan loved it," he said, "and he just got us into it." He added that the band felt it "was important to stay current and keep on top of what's going on."

In the meantime, check out Korn's collaboration single "Get Up" featuring Skrillex below.

Without that dubsteb shit, i think it could have been an OKAY song, but that scratching noise just ruined it for me...

Ohh, and "Korn are planning to release a dubstep studio album, expected to dominate the charts later this year. " made me laugh.. What a nice way of saying F..k you to us old fans, and trying to get new ones...
Mechanixxxx - 14.06.2011 at 19:10  
Don't be short sided! That's why I like to keep an open mind when it comes to music, theirs always room for experimenting. Stop acting like a bunch of music prudes.
S.K.Ø.M - 14.06.2011 at 20:43  
Actually, this is far better than returning to the old sound .. Korn III was EPIC FAIL,,, and for me, i liked Korn when they get little experimental in their untitled album way more than any other recent Korn material ...

Edit: seriously, its even better than Morbid Angel Techno/Industrial Tracks

If I hear a worse track this year from a classic metal band than "Too Extreme!", I'll dye my hair blue! Even every track on Sepultura's "Kairos" is better than it. lol
dougver1 - 14.06.2011 at 21:35  
Uhhh... is there a reason Korn isn't on the blacklisted bands?
Elodie Artour - 14.06.2011 at 21:37  
I myself am not much into this whole new (maybe?) dubstep genre but what I am certain of is that this forthcoming Korn album will sell quite well indeed. Besides, I don't see why anything experimental that is not entirely metull seems lame. Don't pretend to be tr00 - that is lame.
Marcus - 14.06.2011 at 22:16  
Haha this is, not surprisingly, pretty awful. At least they're trying to do something new, but they forget they're still an awful band. If you want metal and electronics mixed, just listen to Genghis Tron.
SBGMetal - 14.06.2011 at 22:42

I've got to say, I like it too.
Mad Architect - 14.06.2011 at 23:39  
I think a dubstep/ *DEATH* metal hybrid project has a very good chance at sounding really cool if done correctly, however the more I listen to this, the less I like it.

I don't know why, but whenever I listen to dubstep I get this feeling that a Rammstein-type sound would work quite well.
BenWasHere - 15.06.2011 at 00:14  
The man known as Big Chocolate has done some dubstep-ish deathcore remixes. But sadly, it was deathcore. They're alright but nothing great really
marzepka87 - 15.06.2011 at 00:54

what good news, all they're doing is releasing yet another crappy album

über cash grab. Now that nü metal is dead, they hop in another wagon. Sadly, they're only followers this time.

It's a good thing they decided to change styles. their last few albums were unlistenable, and this song is actually surprisingly goodõ


and come on, all of you whining or laughing at Korn, what's up with you? you guys probably never liked them to begin with, why would you care what they do?

Well I personnaly never liked them, but I sure respected the fact they created a whole new musical current. But now that nu metal is dead, they jump on a trendy bandwagon. I find it pitiful, honestly.
And on a sidenote, I kinda like the song - if only Jonathan Davis wasn't there... (I hate his voice)

What the hell? This is like Varg Vikernes collaborating with the awesome shredder that is Lil Wayne.
LeChron James - 15.06.2011 at 04:47  
This isn't even really a Korn song. I swear I've heard this song at a bar that I went to a few weeks ago, without the Korn vocals of course, leading me to believe that it's just a Skrillex song that's got Jonathan Davis' vocals dubbed over it with maybe some bass guitar. It doesn't sound that bad though, I've definitely heard worse.
Parasomnia - 15.06.2011 at 05:35  
Eh, I'll wait to the album is released to judge if it's a good idea or not

After finally returning to their crunchy original sound, Korn decides to take a regressive step? I am quite disappointed but not surprised.

Although Korn III was not an amazing album by any means, at the very least it marked Korn's return to original form. Yes, the lyrics were very juvenile, and not many of the songs were memorable: however, it helped Korn to climb out of the generic-sounding shit hole they had found themselves in. Unfortunately, a step like this undoes what Korn III did, plummeting Korn into the shit hole they were previously in.

No, it's like when kids are arguing who has the best toy and competing, here it's like a competition who will have the most witty and sarcastic commentary.... Everybody hates KoRn but boy do these guys get commented on A LOT!

Heh, I understand although I do give myself the right to comment and give a sarcasm comment if I want or not considering that I do enjoy their old stuff a lot. But I don't have any witty comments atm so I'm just going to be honest: he song is kind of awful...
The "important to stay current and keep on top of what's going on" was kind of a "lol" as well.

I share your thoughts. Hell, I use sarcasm too when commenting, but I just read the whole topic and I LOL'd so hard And I like KoRn, it doesn't uspset me, it's just fun.... KoRn ft. Lady GaGa for example Brilliant
Get Up doesn't thrill me either, except for the chorus.... I love that part of the song, too bad the rest of the song isn't consistent with it. I fisrt heard this song live and it sounded much better than the recorded version. And I think this dubstep album is going to be a disaster, but ok, I'll just wait and hear for myself.

No you won't.

"Too Extreme" is by far the worst song this year, and yes Too Extreme beats all the tracks on Lulu.

Yes I will.

"Lulu" isn't a real Metallica album, so I don't really count that. But even so... yep, if I had to, I'd rather listen to "The View" than "Too Extreme!"

I wasn't really expecting anything good from the Metallica/Lou Reed project, so I wasn't really disappointed by it. "Too Extreme!" on the other hand, was a shock to the system because it was so unexpected. (although I did fear David Vincent would allow his time in Genitorturers to influence MA's music) I really hate techno music, and to hear one of the classic death metal bands of all time playing stuff like that... was really disapponting, and more than a bit shocking. My total aversion to techno music means that "The View" is infinitely more listenable, as woeful as it is.
