- "Blood", a brand new song from BREAKING BENJAMIN, can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band's upcoming sixth studio album, "Ember", which will be released on April 13 via Hollywood Records.
Speaking about the disc, BREAKING BENJAMIN founder/frontman Ben Burnley noted: "People have always really liked the heavier side of the band. I think that's what they sort of gravitate towards. But we also make sure to explore our melodic and softer side too." On "Ember", he explained, "we just tried to make it more extreme — the softer side on this album is really soft, and the heavy side is really heavy. We decided to give everybody what they want to the furthest degree."
Produced by BREAKING BENJAMIN, "Ember" is the follow-up to the band's 2015 release "Dark Before Dawn", which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart and spun off three No. 1 rock radio tracks, "Failure" (2015's most played Active Rock track), "Angels Fall" and "Never Again". The first single from "Ember", "Red Cold River", was released on January 5 and the accompanying video has nearly four million views.

- MINISTRY mainman Al Jourgensen told the Illinois Entertainer in a new interview that he is dumbfounded by why so many Americans thought it would be a good idea to elect Donald Trump president. "What the fuck is going on in this society that would [make people] think it was a good idea to vote-in an eradiated, shit gibbon, orange orangutan, angry Cheeto?" Jourgensen quipped.
He went on to say that MINISTRY's upcoming album, "AmeriKKKant", "is not an anti-Trump record. This is a record of inquisition, of why did we do this? I'm holding up the mirror, and I want some feedback as to why you all think this happened, [why] we thought that this was a good idea?" Jourgensen said. "It has nothing to do with him; he's the figurehead, he's the symptom. If you go to the doctor with a large cyst on your shoulder, they can take care of the cyst. But as they're doing the cyst, they find out you have cancer. The cyst is just the symptom, so Trump is like a cyst."
Jourgensen also explained how Trump has made it easier for MINISTRY to get Al's point across through using humor and sarcasm. "I just let all the sarcasm drip out of the fucking 'Angry Cheeto''s mouth," Jourgensen said. "I really didn't have to do much to conjure him being an idiot. It wasn't like doing a REVOLTING COCKS record where you just come up with scenarios and just make fun of everything, and irony and sarcasm rule the day. But this is what the fucking guy says. All sarcasm aside, I'll leave that to him. What I'm doing is waving an orange flag saying, 'This ain't right; it's not normal!'"
"AmeriKKKant" will be released on March 9 via Nuclear Blast Records. The disc will feature guest appearances by DJ Swamp (Beck), Burton C. Bell (FEAR FACTORY), Arabian Prince (N.W.A.) and Lord Of The Cello.
MINISTRY's North American tour in support of "AmeriKKKant" kicks off March 22.
- KORN frontman Jonathan Davis spoke to Two Doods Reviews about his forthcoming solo album, which is expected later in the year via Sumerian. You can now watch the chat below.
Davis quietly compiled ideas for what would become this solo effort beginning back in 2007. Writing and recording on the road, he personally contributed guitar, keys, and anything else he could get his hands on to the record. Moreover, the music was primarily recorded live, a departure from KORN's heavily calculated, meticulous, studio approach to creation.
Asked how much of the album brings him back 10 years ago when he first started working on it, Davis said: "When I listen to it, I think back 10 years [ago], but I consciously tried to make this record timeless. I didn't know I was doing it at the time, but I can listen to it now and it sounds current now. And I did it 10 years ago. And I think it's the mixture, this hybrid of all kind of world music and taking what I've learned with KORN, and using new stuff, new-school layering with my son and his partner; they did the layering, all the layering on the record. So there's all kinds of new-school techniques. It's all over the place. When I listen to it, it does take me back, but it's also… I've changed a lot of it to make it more current. And I don't know… I'm really proud of it. I listen to it and go, 'That doesn't sound like 2007 to me,' or whatever. It's just a good song."
Davis added that the lyrical themes covered on his solo album have nothing to do with the current political climate in the U.S. "Absolutely zero," he said. "It's not a political message. You can never win a political argument. I don't wanna go there. And I think my music for us to forget about all that shit. So, no — no politics. I stay out of it. Everyone asks me, what do I think about Trump? I'm, like, I don't have any comment. I'm just living on making my music. "Cause our nation is so divided right now, you don't have a right answer. And I don't wanna open that can of worms."
According to Davis, his KORN bandmates have been very supportive of his decision to release a solo album and tour behind it this year. "They're all happy for me," he said. "They all say they're happy for me. We're like a family. There's no egos or weird stuff in my band. They've all each put something else [out]. Head's [guitar] got his band, Munky [guitar] put out something, Fieldy's [bass] put out his bass solo record, and Ray [Luzier, drums] does his KXM thing. So we're so happy, we all support each other."
Davis will embark on a solo tour in early April. The trek, which will run through the end of June, will include a number of European festival appearances.
Davis will be promoting his new solo single, titled "What It Is". The song is included on the soundtrack to a new film called "American Satan", which came out on January 26.
Davis has recorded and toured on his own intermittently over the years. He has composed music for soundtracks, most notably "Queen Of The Damned", and has toured and DJed frequently over the years as his alter ego JDevil.
KORN's last album, "The Serenity Of Suffering", came out in 2016.
