Korn’s bassist says he wants the band’s cover album to come out someday


Just a week after noticing their long awaited Korn kovers album was still in development, the band’s bassist has indicated that he hopes to see it released one day.

In 2004, news began to emerge about a cover album released by nu-metal icons Korn. Originally slated for release in 2005, the project – well titled Korn kovers – has been stuck in some sort of development hell for years, the band working on it continuously and slowly losing more information over the years.

While songs from Nine Inch Nails, Black Sabbath, Prince, Faith No More, Ozzy Osbourne and Mötley Crüe are expected to feature, so do guest appearances like Xzibit and the late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington.

After so many years and so little information, fans could easily be forgiven for thinking that this project might in fact never come to fruition. However, after the band revealed last week that they’re still working on it, the band’s bassist echoed our hopes that he’ll see the light of day somewhere down the line.

Talk to The show of art and scope (Going through Blabbermouth), Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu revealed that while their upcoming album Nothingness almost had a few covers, the tracks will be released someday – probably on a full disc.

“Over the years we’ve tried covers, and we have a handful of covers that we haven’t released,” Fieldy explained. “We are still trying to correct them.

“People think it’s like, ‘Oh, you can just cover that song and then it blows up.’ And it’s, like, it’s not as easy as you think. If it was, we’d just say, ‘Oh, what was song number one? Let’s just talk about that. We’re going to explode. This just isn’t the plan.

Noting that the band recorded a cover of “one of the strangest bands” during the sessions of their new album, Fieldy explained that Korn already had a much bigger project in mind, including the release of this full album. ‘musical tributes.

“So very soon, as soon as we get all of that, obviously we’ll go back, and once you’ve done that, the tuning will be quick,” he continued.

“And the next thing you know, maybe we’ll post… who knows?” We always talked about what we wanna do Korn kovers, with a “K” and release an entire cover album instead of just releasing a cover on a Korn album.

“I like the idea of ​​being able to buy a CD with just Korn covers, so it’s not like you’re trying to blow your band out of a cover.

“But you never know how it works, because we did it [Pink Floyd’s] ‘[Another] Brick In The Wall ‘, and that song turned out to be amazing. But we don’t play it a lot. I would like us to do that, because there is only good feedback, from what I hear.

While there is no official word as to when we will actually hear the full album from Korn kovers, we can stay seated knowing that the group has definitely not forgotten it, and that we will someday, you can see nu-metal icons pay homage to their idols on a full release.
