Korn’s James ‘Munky’ Shaffer and Brian ‘Head’ Welch heap praise on Bring Me The Horizon, calling their music “fresh and new”
Korn’s James ‘Munky’ Shaffer and Brian ‘Head’ Welch have heaped praise on UK outfit Bring Me The Horizon, saying they are driving metal in a “fresh and new” direction.
Welch also reports that if Bring Me The Horizon’s 2015 album
had come out a decade ago, it would have racked up an enormous amount of sales by now.
He tells Alternative Press: “When you think of what bands, when we get all grey-haired and hang it up, that can take that slot and headline, Bring Me The Horizon is no.1 for me, they just have everything.
“If Bring Me The Horizon had come out 10 years ago, their album would be five times platinum right now, guaranteed. Every song on that newest album is so good. Even the last couple I really like. I don’t know those guys too well – I just really love their writing.”
Shaffer adds: “I love almost every record from Bring Me The Horizon and to see their evolution. Their early stuff is so heavy but where they’re headed is just so fresh and new. I’m a big fan of that band.”
The pair say they would love to see Korn tour with some younger bands in the future as it would bring different generations of music together in a live environment.
Welch says: “I would love like to do something either next year or in the next couple years, maybe with some of these other younger bands like A Day To Remember or Of Mice & Men. I would love to just bring the generations together.”
Korn are gearing up for the release of their 12th album
, which will launch on October 21 via Roadrunner Records. The record features Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor performing guest vocals on the track
