Is time a flat circle? Are we doomed to repeat the past? Korn and Corey Taylor have the inner gears spinning in the new video for "A Different World," which you can watch above.

The animated clip opens with a man in his rocking chair getting fixated on a pipe in the corner, which draws him in and sends him into a darkly bizarre world that he navigates in his new armor, careening through halls and around corners until a light grabs his curiosity, leading him on a path toward a dark being. But how this journey ends up will leave you with plenty to think about.

Korn released "A Different World," their collaboration with the Slipknot vocalist, late in September. Singer Jonathan Davis revealed, “We were trying to figure out who we wanted to collaborate with, and I’m like, ‘You know, that’s the one, that’s the guy,' And I texted him, I’m like, ‘Do you want to be on a new Korn track?’ He’s all, ‘Hell yeah! When and where, what do I do?’ So he did great on the song. I already did my parts, I’m like, ‘Do what you do, man.’ And I like the way he did it, the approach: he starts creeping in underneath the song, you can start slowly hearing his voice under mine, and it crescendos up into the middle part where he sings, and then it’s just full-on at the end, so the song came out great.” Taylor recently joined Korn onstage at the Louder Than Life festival to perform the track.

You can find "A Different World" on Korn's The Serenity of Suffering album, due Oct. 21 through Roadrunner. Pre-orders can be placed via Amazon and iTunes. And look for the band on tour with Breaking Benjamin. Dates can be found in our 2016 Rock + Metal Tour Guide.
