Germany’s EMP Rock Invasion recently conducted an interview with KORN singer Jonathan Davis and guitarist Brian “Head” Welch. You can now watch the chat below.

KORN recently released an official music video for “Never Never”, the first single from the band’s upcoming 11th studio album, “The Paradigm Shift”. Like the album itself, the clip is the first to feature original KORN guitarist Brian “Head” Welch in more than eight years. Welch rejoined the group permanently earlier this year after leaving in 2005. The video may be saying something about the passage of time as the members of the group play the song while avoiding the lethal arms of a giant clock.

The melodic, almost pop-driven style of “Never Never” has met with some mixed reactions from KORN fans, which Davis told Metal Hammer was his intention. He explained, “We put this out first cause I knew it was going to piss off a lot of people. And um, so I did it. That song ain’t for dudes, it’s for the ladies.”

Guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer told The Pulse Of Radio that the new disc is another big step forward for the band musically. “The melodies on it, on the tracks we did, they just sound like, so much like a mature band,” he said. “Sounds like they’re well thought out, the themes of, you know, the songs that Jonathan wrote about — it’s just where we are now. Every record’s just sort of a snapshot of where you are musically, personally . . . financially. [laughs].”

KORN will release “The Paradigm Shift” on October 8. A deluxe edition will feature two bonus tracks and a documentary DVD called “Reconciliation”.

The band will kick off a headlining North American tour on September 26 in Philadelphia, concluding in Las Vegas on October 12.

They managed to avoid the anticlimactic self-parody that plagues most other bands who "make a comeback". Not only did they stage an awesome comeback, but with the entry of a new lead singer and the passage of time …

A better evaluation of a year’s best releases is done a few years later, as the passage of time generally provides a clearer perspective, but as of right now, 2010 was a very good year for heavy metal.  Narrowing down the multitude of quality releases to the top 20 was extremely difficult, and ranking them even more so.  When doing a year end ranking, it’s important to revisit the albums, and not go just on the original impression or review.  Some CDs were growers, and others lost a bit of their luster since their original review.  Several of the releases on our top 20 you’ll see on many other lists, but others may surprise you.  Not sure if that means we’re idiots or visionaries, but in the end we’re just metal fans with opinions, like everyone else.
