On their 2010 release "Korn III: Remember Who You Are" the band "went back to their roots". On their new material they'll be going back to Soundgarden's roots.

Munky recently had this to say about Korn's new material:

"We went into the studio a couple of months ago, wrote some songs, Jonathan demoed the songs on his computer, and then we took them into the studio and played them live and tweaked them a little bit....They kind of remind me a little bit of the Soundgarden style, that sort of Seattle sound.We'll probably start recording in April to try and fine tune this sound we're developing."

Korn was also just announced as one of the acts performing at the Download Festival along with Linkin Park and System of a Down.
