"It was like a wild animal," Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer tells ArtistDirect.com of his band's upcoming ninth offering, Korn III: Remember Who You Are. "You let it out of the gate and everyone hold on!"

In the exclusive video interview captured backstage at the Ballroom Blitz Tour's hometown stop in Bakersfield, California, Munky goes on to give more insight into the making of the band's return-to-form, including working with producer Ross Robinson, writing with drummer Ray Luzier and using some killer guitars to forge his riffs.

The site contends, "Korn let it all out, and the results are the record of their career thus far."
