Metal rock and sustainable gardens do not usually go hand-in-hand, but members of the metal band Korn are breaking stereotypes while recording their new album “The Paradigm Shift.” The Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum band, which is known for its distinct heavy metal, punk, grunge and folk fusion style, has received much media attention for both its musical success and its controversial messages. However, the band is now in the spotlight for making some positive lifestyle changes.


Korn members are reportedly beginning to take a greater interest in their health and have invested in a hydroponic micro farm which is flourishing right inside their studio. The indoor set-up, which is scattered in containers throughout the studio hallways, allows the band easy access to several organic, pesticide-free vegetables (including corn) and makes eating healthy a convenient part of the day. The members of Korn will be working steadily on the album until its release this upcoming October and hope that the onsite garden will keep them healthy and focused on their work.

    Be interesting to see what happens to the plants since so many studies demonstrate that heavy metal tends to kill them while classical encourages growth. There’s a company called Sonic Bloom which develops special musical tapes played in fields where crops are growing, claiming increased yields. I’m a big fan of heavy metal, so I don’t think that’s true. Maybe they’re playing the wrong bands. Maybe different plants like different bands, who knows!
