Korn announces ‘Requiem’

Album is due Feb 2022

Korn has announced Requiem for release on February 4, 2022 via Loma Vista Recordings. The first track, “Start The Healing” was previewed within augmented reality filters and billboards around the world last week. The official music video is available now.

The live action and animated visual for “Start The Healing” was directed by Tim Saccenti. The clip is about death and re-birth amidst an array of preternatural creatures, humanoids and the band’s electrifying live performance symbolizing the dawn of a new era for Korn.

“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,” Saccenti says of the clip. “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 3D 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.”

Due to the pandemic, the album was created through new energy that was free of time constraints. The band was able to take additional time to experiment together and diligently record to analog tape — processes which unearthed newfound sonic dimension and texture in their music.

Korn produced the album with Chris Collier. Requiem will be available on a variety of formats including CD and standard LP, Limited Edition Metallic Shell Cassette limited to 500 units worldwide, Marbled Maroon LP with 24×24 foldout poster and silver vinyl variant limited to 1,000 copies.
