Korn stream The Serenity Of Suffering in full


Korn have streamed their latest album The Serenity Of Suffering in full.

All 11 tracks on the follow-up to 2013’s The Paradigm Shift can be heard below, and the record is on sale today (October 21).

Frontman Jonathan Davis recently discussed the work with Metal Hammer, saying: “I think it’s returning to our roots – but it’s new and it doesn’t sound like any of the other albums. It’s fucking heavy, man!”

He added of his lyrics: “We summed it up with the title of the record. I choose to write about the dark things in life. I’m happy, I’ve got a family I love, and I love touring. But when I’m in those dark places and I suffer from depression, it seems like suffering is the place that’s home for me. It’s my familiar old friend, and when I’m happy it’s kind of foreign for me.

“I’m 45, I’m not 16 any more. I’m not singing about high school. There’s still challenges in life and this is my therapy. Half the time, I don’t know what the fuck I’m writing about – it’s like, ‘I’m 45… what the fuck do I have to bitch about?’ But it doesn’t necessarily get any better.”

Korn are the cover stars of the latest edition of Metal Hammer, on sale now in print and via TeamRock+. They’re currently touring North America and return to the UK in December and Europe in March.

The A-Z Of Korn

Freelance Online News Contributor

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
