Korn Get Brutal on New Song ‘Cold’
Korn have debuted another new song, "Cold," ahead of the Sept. 13 release of their forthcoming record, The Nothing. Listen below.
The track is one of the band's more experimental offerings, but manages not too drift too far from their core sound. A contorted mass of dissonant chords, heaving rhythms and moments driven almost exclusively by drum and bass, "Cold" is pure sonic paranoia. We even hear Jonathan Davis go to the depth of his vocal range, discharging some guttural growls.
"Deep, within our Earth lives an extraordinary force. Very few are aware of the magnitude and significance of this place where good/evil, dark/light, bliss/torment, loss/gain and hope/despair all exist as one- pulling at us every moment of our lives," Davis said in a statement about The Nothing.
"It’s not something we can choose to navigate, but rather an awareness of this ‘presence’ that surrounds us with every breath, as if we are being watched at every moment," the singer continued. "It’s the place where black and white energies attach themselves to our souls, and shape our emotion, choices, perspective and ultimately our very existence. There is a miraculous and small realm within this vortex and it’s the only place where balance between these dynamic and polarizing forces exists — where the soul finds its refuge. Welcome to…..THE NOTHING."
