MIAMI, Fla. -- The edgy, high-energy band Korn is famous for incorporating a unique blend of hip hop, rap and funk-metal with traditional rock and roll. In Session with Korn, a new book and CD play-along set from Warner Bros. Publications, provides percussion students and players with the opportunity to explore the distinctive style of the groupís renown drummer, David Silveria.
Silveria's lightning fast drum speed, explosive solos, and flawless timing have been a driving force behind Korn's unforgettable sound. In Session with Korn allows drummers to learn Silveria's techniques, while playing along with Korn. The book and CD set are enthusiastically endorsed by Silveria.
Although the material covered in the book and CD is detailed and extensive, it is also readily accessible to all drummers, from intermediate to advanced levels. The book includes note-for-note transcriptions in drum notations, full top lines with lyrics, and a breakdown and analysis of each track with essential hints and technique tips. An in-depth analysis and background review of each song helps give drummers a better understanding of the philosophy behind Silveria's playing. The book also includes biographical notes on Silveria and a complete discography of Korn's hits.
The play-along CD that comes with the book features six classic Korn songs: "Freak on a Leash", "Shoots and Ladders", "Justin", "Got the Life", "A.D.I.D.A.S.", and "Pretty". Each of these songs is recorded in two versions: one features the full soundtrack (minus vocals), while the other is played without the drums to give musicians the chance to incorporate the lessons and play along with the band.
"In Session with Korn provides drummers with a hands-on learning experience," said Ray Brych, Warner Bros. Publications percussion product line manager. "Listening to Korn songs with and without David's drum part, gives you a deeper understanding of not only what he's doing, but why he's doing it. This makes it easier to focus your energy in practice, because you have a clearer picture of what you want to accomplish as a drummer."
In Session with Korn is attractively packaged with an eye-popping cover that features a full color photo of the band against a dynamic red, blue and orange background that captures the spirit of Korn. The book and CD play-along set has a suggested retail price of $24.95.
