While Korn stopped in New York City on their Jagermeister Ballroom Blitz tour, guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer stopped through the Noisecreep compound to discuss what's in store for the band and their ninth studio album Korn III: Remember Who You Are.
Writes Noisecreep, "During our interview, Munky talked about how Robinson mentally tortured them in the studio to bring out their most passionate performances and how the mind games simultaneously helped them flash to where they were in the '90s and gave them a new, previously untapped potency and creativity. The guitarist also revealed that writing and playing songs like 'Oildale (Leave Me Alone),' 'The Past' and 'Let the Guilt Go' helped him cope with the deaths of both his parents and gave him new perspective on his own life.
In addition to talking about such philosophical stuff, Munky discussed how the band created 'Korn III: Remember Who You Are,' how new drummer Ray Luzier (ex-Army of Anyone) gives their songs new dimension, the experimental techniques that help make the record sound so revolutionary and the video for 'Oildale (Leave Me Alone)' and the status of his star-studded side project Fear and the Nervous System."
