KORN - Frontman To Judge 'Original Song Contest' At BLIZZCON
According to WorldOfWarcraft.com, KORN frontman Jonathan Davis will be the
judge of the "BlizzCon Original Song Contest" sponsored by Creative Labs
and FilePlanet. The five songs that receive the most votes will be played
live for BlizzCon attendees during the "Cocktails and Contests" event, which
starts at 7:00 p.m. PDT at the Anaheim Convention Center this Friday (Oct.
28). Davis will choose the grand-prize winner, who will receive an autographed
Ibanez K7 guitar and Creative GigaWorks ProGamer G500 speaker system.
KORN's new effort, "See You on the Other Side", was produced by Matrix (AVRIL
LAVIGNE, THE MOONEY SUZUKI) and Atticus Ross (BAD RELIGION, NINE INCH NAILS,
PINK). The CD is scheduled for release on December 6 through a global partnership
with EMI/Virgin Records. This innovative multiple rights joint venture deal
is among the first of its kind in the music industry.
In addition to their record deal, KORN and EMI Music have established a
joint venture company in which EMI and Virgin Records will partner with
KORN on the band's non-recording activities such as the band's DVD sales,
music publishing, touring, merchandise, sponsorship and any other band activities
such as film, TV, book or video game projects. The deal which offers KORN
unprecedented artistic freedom, enables the group to be more innovative
in the multi-platform release of music. KORN have been leaders in this arena,
beginning with the KORN TV online campaign in 1998 to more recently when
they were the first band to simulcast a live concert in 2002 into movie
theaters across the U.S.
