KORN frontman Jonathan Davis has confirmed that the band have hired former OTEP guitarist Rob Patterson to play guitar for the band on their upcoming European tour. In a posting on his ButtSexCrips.com web site, Davis writes, "We hired Rob Patterson to play guitar for the European dates but he will not be on stage. We don't want to use samples or tape, 'cause that would suck. We are not ready to have a new guy on stage with us. This is for the first Europe run only. We have some new exciting ideas on how we are gonna play live in the future and I am sure it will blow your mind."
KORN are currently mixing their new album with producer Terry Date (DEFTONES, PANTERA, SOULFLY) for a tentative October release. "Mixing is going great," Davis writes. "13 songs done and they sound fucking amazing." Matrix (AVRIL LAVIGNE, THE MOONEY SUZUKI) and Atticus Ross (BAD RELIGION, PINK) were responsible for most of the production duties on the follow-up to 2003's "Take a Look in the Mirror", with only one track from the band's sessions with Dallas Austin slated to appear on the effort. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Liar", "Politix", "Last Legal Drug", "Le Petit Mort", "It's Me Again", "Coming Undone", "I've Seen It All" and "Souvenir of Sadness".
KORN's last release, "Greatest Hits, Vol. 1" (Immortal/Epic), featuring highlights from the first 10 years of the band's recording career, has sold 930,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
As previously reported, KORN are close to inking a new record deal with EMI/Virgin, according to Hits Daily Double, the companion web site of music industry tip sheet HITS. The proposed deal is said to be for two albums and a one-third interest in the band's publishing, merchandising and ticket sales as part of a new contractual model, a la Robbie Williams. The fine points are being hammered out by attorney Gary Stiffelman and manager Jeff Kwatinetz on the band's side of the table, and by EMI North America head David Munns in tandem with Virgin topper Matt Serletic.

￼￼￼￼￼￼KoRn FRONTMAN TO STAR IN HORROR FLICK
According to a posting at Bloody-Disgusting.com, KORN frontman Jonathan Davis is in talks to join the cast of next year's much anticipated horror film "Sin-Jin Smyth".
The script for "Sin-Jin Smyth" (written by Ethan Dettenmaier and currently being circulated with dummy pages in it), which is widely considered to be one of the industry's most original, is centered around a midnight prisoner transfer (moments after a tornado warning) of a man with no past and no identity and is set against a Halloween legend of midnight appearance of the Devil in a quiet, little Kansas cemetery.
"Reading the script of 'Sin-Jin Smyth' is like having steel dinosaur teeth take a bit out of you! It is unlike anything I've ever read and my hat's off to this writer for developing a new and pretty sinister story," continued the inside source cited by Bloody-Disgusting.com. "It really has a chilling feeling to it!"
There is no word on which character Jonathan Davis will be playing but already onboard are Richard Tyson and Jason Hildebrandt (both of "Black Hawk Down"), Lee Ving (of the punk band FEAR) and members of the WWF.

*I now have this new account, aside from o0paranoia0o, which I'll be using from now on.or2. You guys that are flatlining out there can give me some ideas for this little fetus of a community.
To get the flow in this community moving a little bit more (seeing as it's not quite up to par), I can rather:
1. Make this completely pointless entry because you're not even reading...
There anything in particular you want out of this place? Are we doing something wrong? Because it DOES say "Loyal Jon Fans" in the user info, but there's not a whole lot going on. It could be worse, but half of you haven't said jack shit.
Community = some sort of participation.
Give me ideas and I'll shut the fuck up. Take it however you want.

Depression strikes the famous, too
By Hap LeCrone
Cox News Service
If you cope with depression, you're in famous company. People who have suffered depression include writers Charles Dickens, Ernest Hemingway and Sylvia Plath and artists Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O'Keeffe and Michelangelo.
Quotations from notable individuals survey their thoughts and feelings about depression:
German poet, novelist and playwright Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote: "My creative powers have been reduced to a restless indolence. I cannot be idle, yet I cannot seem to do anything either. I have no imagination, no more feeling for nature, and reading has become repugnant to me. When we are robbed of ourselves, we are robbed of everything!"
Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Styron wrote: "I would lobby for a truly arresting designation. 'Brainstorm' for instance . . . a veritable howling in the brain, which is indeed what clinical depression resembles like nothing else."
Abraham Lincoln acknowledged: "I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would be not one cheerful face on the earth. Whether I shall ever be better, I cannot tell. I awfully forebode I shall not. To remain as I am is impossible. I must die or be better it appears to me."
Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard said: "In addition to my other numerous acquaintances, I have one more intimate confidant. My depression is the most faithful mistress I have known -- no wonder, then, that I return the love."
Actor Nicolas Cage appeared to be talking about handling depression when he said: "I cry a lot. My emotions are very close to my surface. I don't want to hold anything in so it festers and turns into pus -- a pustule of emotion that explodes into a festering cesspool of depression."
Musician Jonathan Davis stated: "A lot of people don't realize that depression is an illness. I don't wish it on anyone, but if they know how it feels, I swear they would think twice before they shrug it off."
Writer F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote: "Every act of life, from the morning toothbrush to the friend at dinner, became an effort. I hated the night when I couldn't sleep, and I hated the day because it went toward night."
Hap LeCrone is a clinical psychologist in Waco, Texas.

Just another quick little question to answer in your spare time (if you haven't done the previous questionnaire, feel free.)
*In reference to corpseobsession's last entry, how did you feel when you found out that Head departed from KoRn to better follow the Christian religion?*
I'm sure if you're a member of other KoRn comm's, you've probably already said it like a million times over, but if you're willing to give it a shot, it's nice to know your views, also for the sake of conversation. Put your answers in separate entries again if you would. :)
Like I said at suicide.net in corpseobsession's entry (Jodi), I just feel that KoRn was it's own religion (figure of speech), and when you uphold it's beliefs, you're a part of it. He stood for what KoRn stood for, more than anyone because he was a part of it, he made it happen. Finding out all of a sudden one of KoRn's "apostle's" left for another religion and belief is pure abandonment.
Personally, I will say (and this is where things get dirty) I am not a Christian myself, and that does tend to influence my views on this. I don't look at his finding God as like, him "coming to the light and the good." I only see it as going from one extreme to the other, and within an instant. And it really hurts the people who believed in him, it's like showing that your beliefs aren't solid and steady. But I know Jon and the rest won't do that to us.
Haha, to summarize my big lecture: I no like what happened. I am angry and he hurt my feelings. Bad man. Grrr.
