Tough love for Korn
Nu-metal frontrunners Korn spoke exclusively with NME about working with super producer Rick Ross on their latest album, ‘Korn III: Remember Who You Are’.
The band, which has previously worked with Ross on albums such as ‘Life is Peachy’, recently recruited a new addition in the form of drummer Ray Luzier.
In a video interview about the recording process, Luzier said of Ross: “he was not a comfortable guy to work with at all. He was very difficult. It wasn't fun, it wasn't. He purposely wanted to make it uncomfortable.”
The band’s history with Ross, who has also produced records for Slipknot, Limp Bizkit and Klaxons, gave them an idea of what to expect, but to newcomer Luzier it came as a shock.
“This one was the worst one he ever did. It was a pretty terrifying experience. We’d leave there sweating, bleeding, you know, Jon was crying. It was bad. Every producer tries to get the best out of the artist in their own way.”
