KORN Touring Guitarist SHANE GIBSON And Super Drummer THOMAS LANG Unleash STORK Debut

Combining thrash metal with progressive rock, Los Angeles-based progressive, instrumental heavy metal trio STORK is the brainchild of guitar ogre Shane Gibson (KORN) and über-drummer Thomas Lang. The band's debut CD, "stOrk", was released on January 11 via MUSO Entertainment.

Best known as the touring guitarist for KORN, Gibson's unique soloing, frequent use of odd time signatures, heavy riffing, poly-rhythms, innovative tapping sequences and his impressive sweep picking technique provide the sonic spine of STORK's masterful, musical progeny. Songs like "Changing Lanes" and "Alien" on STORK's debut album perfectly showcase Gibson's considerable shredding skills.

World-renowned drummer Thomas Lang (Rhythm magazine's "Best Drummer in the World") provides the percussive punch to STORK's sonic uppercut. With Lang's incredible interdependence, powerful double bass drumming combined with an innate musicality, his drumming on STORK is both insanely heavy and musical at the same time. Featured on "Metal Fatigue" and "Nautilus", Lang's drumming is legendary.

Rounding out this ultra power trio is bassist Eloy Palacios (VENISON), the sonic superglue that binds Gibson's guitar and Lang's drums together. On STORK's debut album, Palacios' virtuoso playing and bottomless bass pocket are not to be missed.
