From AOL Noisecreep " The last time we interviewed Korn guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer on camera in our studio, he was thoughtful and articulate as he talked about the creation of their album, 'Korn III: Remember Who You Are,' being back in the studio with producer Ross Robinson for the first time in almost 15 years and the power and spirituality of making music. Remembering what a good interview subject he was, we got Munky back on the phone for this week's podcast, along with Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jatsta."
