Korn Guitarist Talks New Album, Becomes New Dad


Korn guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer says in a recent interview that maybe dubstep isn’t the way to go with the future of the band’s sound.

James says Korn have “been working on” new music “for awhile, just recording ideas. I wouldn’t say it’s a 180 from the last album, but we’re definitely taking a different approach.”

Fucking posers. Any trend they think they can capitalize on, they will. I bet the next Korn record boasts a guest appearance by that Psy dude.

“We’re not going with the dubstep style, but we are using a lot of interesting recording techniques,” he says.

He says the record will be heavier.

“I think once Jonathan puts vocals on it, it has…it’s more melodic and the guitars are more aggressive and much more in your face,” he says. “I think what we did before was bold and took a lot of balls, in regards to the album devoted entirely to dubstep. To me it’s very much a Korn album, but I want to feature more guitar on this album.”

Shaffer and his wife, Evis Xheneti, also are new parents. The couple welcomed their first child, D’Angelo Draxon Shaffer, on Wednesday at 8:44 a.m.
