Corey Taylor will make a guest appearance on Korn’s new album

Korn guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer has confirmed Corey's guest appearance

Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor is set to make a guest appearance on Korn‘s 12th album.

Metal Hammer reports that Taylor’s involvement on the record was revealed by Korn guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer, who says that he “really lets loose” on the song that he guests on.

He also went on to describe the sound of the upcoming record, and said it was one of their heaviest albums yet.

“We have Corey singing on one track and it’s going to be a fan favourite because he really lets loose”, Shaffer said.

“On a heaviness scale of one to 10 with 10 being the 1994 self-titled, this album is a definite nine.”

The record is expected to be released later this year, and is the first since 2013’s The Paradigm Shift.

It is also the second record to feature guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch since his return to the band.

Describing working with Welch once more, Shaffer said: “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.”
