It's not every day you get to sit down with four guitarists who, between them, form the backbone of two of the most influential metal bands of the past 20 years. So, when the opportunity arises, there's only one thing for it. We gathered James 'Munky' Shaffer, Brian 'Head' Welch, Jim Root and Mick Thomson in a room and sat them around an actual round table to find out why guitar solos aren't always necessary, the importance of evolution, and what it's like having knives thrown at you onstage.

We can go eat after this! We can't say shit like that because we're from Iowa! In the early days, we would Are Korn and Slipknot friends? rubber workers' halls or whatever to do shows, then you'd get to the point where you could do Are Korn and Slipknot friends? all-ages show on a weekend at a bar, where there were wristbands for alcohol.

But it was weird for me because I was the last guy to join Slipknot, so by the time I joined they were already signed. It was like, 'Are you fucking kidding? We can go eat after this! I was like, 'Who's that singing like Rush?! But then once they stuck us with metal, we started growing. It was the mid to late 90s, every band had a one-word title and we got thrown into a lot of that shit with bands that were completely off. We opened for them in Omaha. We opened the show, then they cancelled the rest of the tour and then not too long after that their bass player was killed by some fucking dickhead driving drunk.

It also made us tell our management, 'Put us with some bands that can relate to what we're doing! Your record had just come out, or was about to.

Slipknot's Joey Jordison Reveals A KORN Song That 'Changed His Life'

It was upstairs at the Eagles Ballroom. Just straight up and down. On that tour, I was jamming and I heard 'Bam! I think it was sticking in the screen of my cabinet. We got booked to play some hardcore punk festival. There were bricks, bottles of piss, a dead. Which isn't even remotely true.

Are Korn and Slipknot friends?

But all these message boards got that shit rolling, and there were open knives, and someone killed a rabbit! I had to grow into it. I called him up and said, 'Holy-shit! You outdid yourself on Are Korn and Slipknot friends? one! In all honesty, it was too heavy for me - I wasn't a heavy, heavy guy. I had to grow into it. Did that spur you on? You write a certain way.

No two guys write the same way. We find that in the studio: we'll take a riff that appeared earlier that's heavy, and we'll slow it down and make it crush. But then you're like, 'We're doing our Slipknot ending again! We'll be like, 'Does that sound like a song from 1996? Or you start using the same formula, it forces you to evolve your songwriting. There are people who fall in that rut and stay there forever.

We don't want to be labelled as that band. Every record Are Korn and Slipknot friends? done, you learn so much. Our first time with Ross was an eye-opener. I still have things to this day that I do differently because of Ross. I hit stuff pretty hard live, and in the studio I tried to be perfect, he was just like, 'Oh great, you spent a lot of time practising. Why don't you just make me feel something? Why is it when we're in the studio, it's not on fire, but when I see you put on that shit and go on stage it is?

Why are you backing off? It was a shame, because I practised soloing my whole life! But our approach was to create a bridge section that everyone can do whatever. Get creative, make the weirdest sounds you can, and there's Korn - so a lot of kids were influenced by us that were like, 'Man, I could do this! You don't need loads of notes to be heavy. So you guys would come out and play just a few notes, but crushingly heavy. That's how I got to know you.

Are Korn and Slipknot friends?

Just single Are Korn and Slipknot friends?, heavy as shit. That's kind of like the Sabbath way! Look at a song like Got The Life with that chord progression - it's huge. I'm not sure how we picked those! So we spent a lot of time woodshedding. I was so pissed off. Before we did pre-production on the first record, I had a couple of leads - I had some sweep arpeggios, stuff I'd done my whole life, and it just got stripped out because 'Solos aren't cool. I always want to know, 'What's Corey doing in this?

Randy Rhoads would have a lyrical, singing beauty in every one of his solos. I was teaching guitar when these guys were blowing up huge. I got a good deal out of the fallout of you guys with your seven-strings!

Every kid was like, 'Dude, I'm gonna get a seven! I'd always been that low because I was coming from death metal. I'd do Cthen C drops to B and sometimes we'd be down to A. Ibanez made him a seven-string and I ended up using that. If I were to ever switch or start using seven-strings, to go back to a six-string would probably be so awkward. He'll mess with it a little bit and then it'll just confuse him!

I'd play baritones and tune them to drop D. That was refreshing, but the baritone necks are really long. We used the Kemper a lot. Just the lights and everything!

Or did you dial up one of the sounds? Anything to lessen any cables and all that crap. It's a cool tool if you can't tour with a giant guitar rack. But I could really tell the difference. I use a tube head and pedals, less is more for me. So, it's a cool thing to play with, but would I use it live? Maybe for the effects or Are Korn and Slipknot friends?.

But it has a humanizer effect that does vowel sounds. Prosthetics has a ring modulator and a delay. You write the song in a rehearsal room together, then once you go to overdub it's like, 'Let's try this pedal, let's try this effect.

On our first Are Korn and Slipknot friends?, I'd just dick around with effects. Prosthetics was written when I was fucking around creating new patches.

I was adjusting it and making noise to hear what a ring mod sounded like and Clown just started playing. Sid was doing his 'wicka-wicka' stuff, and it was loud and annoying, and I was like, 'I can be gross too! Joey was like, 'Keep doing that! Now, all of those noises come after. Some were too hard to recreate, so we'd just grab them from the session and put them into a new one. It's like a fuzz pedal. I don't use pretty effects. When I'm not working on the site, I can be found on my electronic kit at home, or gigging and depping in function bands and the odd original project.
