Korn has announced its very first collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
The metal band is the latest musician to dive into the popular digital market, the band teaming up with Mexico-based graphic designer and 3D artist Dreamonaut for the “Monuments” collection.
Korn’s NFTs include four unique audiovisual resources “that celebrate the band’s impact on rock and metal music around the world through the digital surrealist style of Dreamonaut”.
“This collection is an introspection of emotions and thoughts through surreal scenes that represent the condition of feeling imprisoned or linked to ideas, times, people or even different situations and phases of people’s lives. A constant battle with the inner demons and the final liberation of oneself, ”one official description reads.
“With visuals inspired by Korn’s early days, as well as their most recent work, this collection celebrates the evolution and great musical contribution the group has made to rock and metal music around the world.”
The collection would also be carbon neutral, with NFTs offset using Aerial – “a sustainability platform that calculates carbon emissions based on associated energy use.”
In a statement, Korn said of his collection, “As the Internet is born, Korn believes the crypto industry will continue to impact the future of commerce. Just as the internet has stood the test of time, the crypto industry seems to be following in its footsteps, and we are honored to collaborate with the incredibly talented Dreamonaut on our first NFT collection, “Monuments”.
Korn’s NFT Collection will be available for purchase on Thursday, July 15 at 3:30 p.m. PST (11:30 p.m. UK time) at MakersPlace.
Korn announced this week that Suicidal Tendencies bassist Roberto ‘Ra’ Díaz will replace Reginald ‘Fieldy’ Arvizu throughout their upcoming summer tour.
