Davis told Express & Star that he worked on “Black Labyrinth” for a long time before it finally saw the light of day. “I’ve been waiting 11 years for this to come out,” he said. “It’s really good to finish something which I started so long ago. It’s something I’m really proud of. I’ve been very patient with it. It’s been sat on my laptop for many years, so it feels really good to be able to finally release it, to talk about it and play it live.
“I’ve got so much music in my vault, but this was the first thing I started, though I do have other things in the pipeline.
“I wrote ‘Black Labyrinth’ while travelling all over the world. I’ve finally found a label and had some time off to do it.
“There are two tracks on the album, ‘Walk On By’ and the bonus track, which were written in 2010 and recorded in January this year. But most of them were done years ago. I’ve re-done some of the vocals and updated a few bits.
“I had to go through and take out the very best of the tracks. I wanted to use only the best of the best. It was hard to choose, but I’ll probably put some more out.
“I can’t do things I’ve done before. I always want to push myself and I want to do fun shit. It’s for the art, not the money.”
KORN will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its classic third album, “Follow The Leader”, with three shows this fall in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
