AltRockLive.com conducted an interview with KORN bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu at the Aftershock festival, which took place September 14-15 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California. You can now watch the chat below.

KORN‘s new album, “The Paradigm Shift”, is due on October 8 via Prospect Park. The follow-up to 2011’s “The Path Of Totality” features the return of guitarist Brian “Head” Welch to the lineup after more than eight years away. His last album with the band was 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror”.

Singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio what the experience was like having Welch back in the studio, making this record extra special.

‘Untouchables’ used to be my favorite, but this one’s mine now,” he said. “You know, it’s just all those years of work and being able to be in a band this long with the guys. And having Head back bringing, you know, that old chemistry back with him with Munky on the rock side and I was on the electronic side. It was good having the compromise on both sides. It was just good for the creative process, I think.”

Songs on the new set, which was recorded with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, LACUNA COIL) at Buck Owens‘ studio in KORN‘s original hometown Bakersfield and at Los Angeles’s famed NRG Recording Studios, include first single “Never Never”, “Prey For Me”, “Spike In My Veins”, “Mass Hysteria”, “Paranoid And Aroused” and “Victimized”.

The official trailer for the KORN documentary titled “Reconciliation” — which reveals exactly how guitarist Brian “Head” Welch returned to the band, the guitarist’s past drug issues and much more — can be seen below (courtesy of Loudwire). The film will be included with the deluxe edition of KORN‘s new album, “The Paradigm Shift”, which is due on October 8 via Prospect Park. The follow-up to 2011’s “The Path Of Totality” features the return of Welch to the lineup after more than eight years away. His last album with the band was 2003’s “Take A Look In The Mirror”.

In the documentary trailer, Welch says about his reasons for quitting KORN: “In 2005, it’s a blur because I was on like three different kinds of methamphetamine, but all I know is I wasn’t happy, I didn’t like being in the band, I didn’t like most of the guys and I didn’t like myself more than anything. Being a drug addict, not liking your surroundings and trying to raise a daughter all at the same time; it just doesn’t really work. Something needed to give. Something needed to change and I didn’t care what the cost was gonna be. I needed to live. I needed to come back to life because I was almost dead.”

Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL have entered the studio with producer Jay Baumgardner (P.O.D., SEVENDUST, EVANESCENCE, PAPA ROACH) to begin recording their new album for an early 2014 release via Century Media Records.

After the first days of recording, the band is already happy with the magic happening in the studio.

Cristina Scabbia (vocals): “I am so excited to work on new stuff…

“I am sure a lot of people will be mesmerized by the cinematic vibe of the new album that’s underway.

“I’m very happy to have the chance to work with Jay. Not only is he a pro in what he does, but I am just loving the fact we are going to experiment with new sounds and are getting a different point of view about our art. We’re swamped with the music already…

LACUNA COIL is back, baby!!!”

Andrea Ferro (vocals): “We met Jay a few years ago in L.A. and had a really positive feeling about him, as he has produced and mixed some of my favourite records and some very relevant rock/metal albums.

“We have decided to work with him, because he has the ability to work together with the band towards a common vision without driving the band away from their sound.

“In the studio, there is the right energy that allows common people to achieve uncommon results!”

Cristiano “Pizza” Migliore (guitar): “Yeah, we’re very excited about finally recording new songs — and I can assure you that the new stuff kicks ass!”

LACUNA COIL plans on completing the recording sessions for the new album before joining the “Tragic Illusion Tour” that will celebrate PARADISE LOST‘s 25th anniversary. A few days earlier, they will perform at the Metal Female Voices Fest in Belgium.

LACUNA COIL‘s latest album, “Dark Adrenaline”, sold around 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 15 on The Billboard 200 chart. It marked the band’s second CD with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) at the helm.

“We changed producers on our last album, ‘Shallow Life’, and we wanted to work with Don,” Scabbia told KNAC.COM. “I think that we wanted to change producers mainly to see what we could do with a different person. A producer is much like a teacher and we wanted to learn something new and we found that our goals and Don‘s were much the same. When listening to ‘Dark Adrenaline’, I can say that there is so much different. We are more experienced now and more confident in our sound and we get inspired to try to do more with each new record.”
