Six songs from INFINIKA, the new band featuring former KORN drummer David Silveria alongside ANYONE members Riz Story and Miles Martin, can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below. The tracks available for listening are: “Sensitive”, “Beautiful World”, “Yesterday’s Gone”, “Crash”, “Undone” and “Down”.

INFINIKA‘s “Beautiful World” video was directed by Story and was ironically shot in the very same room that KORN‘s debut video, “Blind”, was filmed in.

“Beautiful World”, which is available for digital purchase via iTunes and Amazon, comes off INFINIKA‘s forthcoming album, “Echoes And Traces”.

INFINIKA is:

Riz Story (ANYONE): Lead Vocals, Guitars
Rob Patterson (KORN, FILTER): Guitar
Miles Martin (ANYONE): Bass
David Silveria (KORN): Drums

Silveria surfaced recently to answer fan questions on his Facebook page, during which he gave the current version of the group a little bit of a slam while emphasizing how important he was to the group’s original sound and even how they came together. Asked if he had heard the new KORN single, “Never Never”, Silveria replied, “For all the fans asking the answer is no I have not heard a new KORN song. All I can say is I’m sure it’s not funky and groovy like the original KORN. I don’t even need to hear it to know that.”

Silveria added, “I am a funky groove drummer and Ray [Luzier, current KORN drummer) is a heavy metal drummer. That’s why KORN will never sound as unique as we used to . . . KORN lost their groove.”

Silveria claimed he wasn’t “talking crap” about his former group, but then went on to say, “Until they have the real ‘funky drummer’ it’s just not gonna groove the way it could. I’ve made it clear that I would come back and restore the groove.”

Silveria was the second member of KORN‘s original lineup to depart, leaving in late 2006. Guitarist Brian “Head” Welch exited the group in 2005. But while Welch continued as a solo artist until rejoining KORN this year, Silveria retired to Huntington Beach, California and opened a restaurant.

Singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he believed Silveria lost his passion for music. “David was there to write beats but he wasn’t really there,” he said. “He really didn’t like playing drums. The first two albums, I think, he really enjoyed playing drums and then after that he just lost his love for playing drums. It happens. Okay, good for him, he wanted to move on and do something else.”

In other comments at his Facebook page, Silveria took credit for bringing Davis and Welch into the band, as well as getting them their management, saying, “None of them want to admit it was me . . . There are a lot of things I did for the band that they don’t like to admit I did.”

Silveria in February pleaded guilty to a charge of allegedly driving under the influence. In exchange, prosecutors dropped the hit-and-run charge in connection with the March 2012 incident in which the 40-year-old musician — who played with KORN for 13 years — rear-ended another car on his way to breakfast in Huntington Beach, California.

Silveria was sentenced to three years of informal probation, a three-month first offender program, and he was ordeded to attend a M.A.D.D. victim impact panel.

Former KORN drummer David Silveria says that the band’s current musical output is “not funky and groovy” like the early material the California-based group wrote and recorded while he was playing with them.

Asked by fans on his Facebook page if he has heard the new KORN single “Never Never”, Silveria replied: “For all the fans asking, the answer is no, I have not heard a new KORN song. All I can say is I’m sure it’s not funky and groovy like the original KORN. I don’t even need to hear it to know that.”

Silveria last year joined forces with ANYONE members Riz Story and Miki Black in a brand new project called INFINIKA.

David left KORN in late 2006 in order to focus on family life along with running his steak house and sushi restaurant.

Current KORN drummer Ray Luzier has been a member of the band since 2007.

Luzier is known for his high-profile gigs with David Lee Roth, Jake E. Lee and ARMY OF ANYONE.

Presented without comment: “Speaking of God, I was getting some crap from a few Christians that were commenting online that KoRn weren’t “honoring The Lord” in their music. There was a time when I didn’t think God would be very into KoRn’s music and lifestyle, but I’ve learned that He loves everyone where they’re at. …
