KORN recently recorded several songs at the legendary BBC Maida Vale Studios in London, England for an exclusive BBC Radio 1 “Rock Show” session which aired last night (Monday, April 2) as part of Daniel Carter‘s program. KORN guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer was also on the phone talking about the band’s recent tour. You can now stream the program for another six days at BBC.co.uk (the session begins around the 36-minute mark).
KORN‘s latest album, “The Path Of Totality”, saw the band teaming up with dubstep producers and DJs to add a whole new electronic layer to their sound.
Much of the material for the album was recorded at singer Jonathan Davis‘ home studio, and he laid down vocals at home or in hotel rooms while on tour.
Davis said that title refers to the fact that “in order to see the sun in a full solar eclipse, you must be in the exact right place in the exact right time. That’s how this album came together . . . I’m not sure it could ever happen again.”
The album was released in two configurations: as a standard 11-song CD and a special edition CD that included bonus tracks as well as a DVD of “The Encounter”, a full-length video concert of KORN‘s mind-blowing, once-in-a-lifetime performance in the middle of a 900-foot-long crop circle in a wheat field in Bakersfield. The complete concert, previously seen in 2010 on TV and online in an abbreviated form, was offered in its entirety to those who purchase the deluxe version.
