Professionally filmed video footage of KORN performing the song “Narcissistic Cannibal” live at Roseland Ballroom in New York City on November 4, 2011 can be seen below. The track comes off the band’s tenth studio album, “The Path Of Totality”, which will be released on December 6 via Roadrunner Records.
“The Path Of Totality” is an experimental album which finds KORN shifting gears and exploring new territory. That should hardly come as a shock to the band’s diehard fans, as KORN exploded onto the scene in the’90s and established themselves as hard rock game-changers from that point on.
For “The Path Of Totality”, the band collaborated with some of the leading dubstep and electronic producers in the world, including Skrillex, Excision, Datsik, Noisia, Kill the Noise, and 12th Planet. The result is something completely new, yet utterly and definitively KORN.
Speaking to Kerrang! magazine about the reaction to “The Path Of Totality”, KORN frontman Jonathan Davis said, “I always felt KORN was the black sheep of the metal community because we didn’t fit in anywhere. When I did the first record I was inventing a new genre of music then. It’s the same shit now. I haven’t been this excited in years.”
The band’s recent (and much lauded) collaboration with dubstep’s hottest producer, Skrillex, titled “Get Up!”, was the surprise rock hit of the summer, the buzz of which started in Coachella‘s dance tent in April 2011, when Jonathan and Munky joined Skrillex on stage for a show-stealing unannounced performance of the song.

01. Chaos Lives In Everything

The album will be released in two configurations: as a standard 11-song CD and a special edition CD that will include 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 last year on TV and online in an abbreviated form, will be offered in its entirety to those who purchase the deluxe version.
