Stream Korn’s New Album ‘The Paradigm Shift’
Korn's highly anticipated 11th studio album, 'The Paradigm Shift,' is set for an Oct. 8 release. Many of you are probably riddled with the shakes waiting for the record to come out, but no worries, Korn have unveiled the entire disc early via a full album stream at Pandora.com (click below).
'The Paradigm Shift' is the first Korn record in 10 years to feature guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch. Korn took a sharp left turn with their 2011 album, 'The Path of Totality,' experimenting with dubstep nuances and other electronic elements. It was truly a love-it-or-hate-it album, polarizing critics to incredible extremes, although fans of Korn embraced the band's new direction found in tracks such as 'Get Up!' and 'Narcissistic Cannibal.'
The big question is, 'How will Head affect the band with his return?" Korn have already released the electronically-infused 'Never Never' and the much heavier 'Love & Meth,' which draws from more classic Korn elements. The two singles, due to their many opposites, didn't reveal much about the album's overall direction, but all questions will now be answered with Korn's full stream of 'The Paradigm Shift.'
"I’m excited about this one," singer Jonathan Davis recently told us. "A lot of people are talking about it, which is good. It’s different, as you may have heard. I think by not doing the same thing over and over it helps us remain relevant. For some bands like AC/DC, it’s actually a good thing to not change things too much. They have an awesome formula. But our formula is to be kind of different each time out."
