    Nu-Metal icons Korn have dropped the massive new single Start The Healing and announced a new album Requiem will be out February 4th via Loma Vista Recordings.

    The release of Start The Healing follows a week of cryptic teasing from Korn, and is sure to have heads banging worldwide. Presenting the signature Korn sound with some sharper, modern melodies, Start The Healing, is the first taste of the next genesis of Korn.

    Arriving with a Tim Saccenti (Flying Lotus, Run The Jewels, Depeche Mode) directed live-action/animated video that is a visual feast about death and rebirth that takes place amidst an array of preternatural creatures, humanoids and the band’s electrifying performance, the artistic intention of Start The Healing is to symbolize the rebirth of Korn as they enter into an exciting new era.

    Saccenti's words on the genesis of Start The Healing's visuals give great insight into the process.

    "Our idea for this video was to mutate that aspect of the DNA of Korn, of what makes them so inspiring, their mix of raw power and transportive aesthetics and human emotion. 
     

    I wanted to take the viewer on an emotional journey, as the song does, a visceral, cathartic death and rebirth that will hopefully help transport the listener through whatever their personal struggles are.

    Collaborating with 3-D artist Anthony Ciannamea we tapped into Korn's mythology and explored their vast well of light and darkness to create a surreal, liminal-pace body-horror nightmare."

    Watch the video for Start The Healing below. 

    Due to the effects of Covid and the inability to play live shows for the first time in their illustrious career, Requiem was conceived out of very different circumstances than the majority of the band’s catalogue. It is an album born of time and the ability to create without pressure. Energised by a new creative process free of time constraints, the band was able to do things with Requiem that the past two decades haven't always afforded them, such as taking additional time to experiment together or diligently recording to analogue tape – processes which unearthed newfound sonic dimension and texture in their music. 

    Dropping into a heavy music world that is currently vibing a nu-metal renaissance, Start The Healing a and Requiem seem poised to reposition Korn at the top of the nu-metal genre, which is somewhere they definitely belong. 

    The cover art for Requiem can be seen below.
