Former Mushroomhead frontman Waylon Reavis has revealed that the first album from his new band A Killer’s Confession will include a guest appearance by Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch.

He’s recorded for their first single, also called A Killer’s Confession, to be released on October 31. It appears on their full-length debut Unbroken, set for launch on February 17 via EMP Label Group, run by Megadeth’s David Ellefson.

Reavis says: “We can finally tell you – Brian has graciously recorded amazing guitars for a guest spot on A Killer’s Confession.

“We can’t thank him enough for his huge and incredible contribution and support to our project.”

Korn have just released their track A Different World, which features Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor in a guest role.

Taylor explained: “It’s heavy. It’s so righteous. People are going to lose their minds.

“I’m going to brag now because I’ve heard 11 songs of this – it’s such a great throwback to the first three Korn albums, mixed with the maturity they have now. It’s that good.”

A Different World appears on Korn’s next album The Serenity Of Suffering, which is launched on October 21. The band are currently touring North America, with UK and European dates to follow.
