Slipknot’s Corey Taylor will guest on Korn’s upcoming 12th album, Metal Hammer can reveal.
Korn guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer says Taylor “really lets loose” on the song he guests on and adds that the follow-up to 2013’s The Paradigm Shift hits “nine out of 10” on the “heaviness scale.”
Munky says: “We have Corey singing on one track and it’s going to be a fan favourite because he really lets loose. On a heaviness scale of one to 10 with 10 being the 1994 self-titled, this album is a definite nine.”
The as-yet-untitled record is expected to be released later this year and Munky says the band are working like “a well-oiled machine” since the return of Brian ‘Head’ Welch in 2013.

Munky adds: “When Head came back to us on the last record, it was our way of getting the wheels greased. Now everything is well-oiled and the machine works really well.
“When Head and I start writing riffs together, we have this endless stream of creativity – we’re like Korn’s yin and yang.”
The full interview with Munky will appear in the next issue of Metal Hammer magazine, which hits the streets on July 19 and will also be available via TeamRock+.
