KORN frontman Jonathan Davis may make an appearance on the next MARILYN MANSON CD as a return favor for Manson singing the Davis co-penned "Redeemer" on the Queen Of The Damned soundtrack. According to Manson, “I'm in the middle of recording a new record, and it was good to just make contact with Jonathan. I think that maybe since I did this for him maybe he'll work on something with me. It's kind of in the secretive middle stages, but this wasn't too far off from what I'm doing, so it didn't distract me from my frame of mind where I was at." As previously reported, Davis had originally cut the vocals for the music featured in the film, but due to various record company legalities, he was not able to have his vocals appear on the Warner Bros. soundtrack.
Manson had the following to say about his contribution to Queen Of The Damned: "I've been friends with Jonathan or I've known him for probably five or six years. We hadn't seen each other or worked together recently, so it was good to kind of reunite and do this.
"It was a different thing for me and I probably wouldn't have done it for just anyone, but since it was Jonathan and we had a relationship, and he wanted me to do it, this song in particular, I agreed to it. And since he did all of the work as far as creating it, it gave me the opportunity to just perform as a singer and not have to worry about all the other elements that I normally do. So, it made things easier, but harder in a way as well."
In addition to “Redeemer”, the Queen Of The Damned soundtrack album features Davis' compositions sung by LINKIN PARK's Chester Bennington, ORGY's Jay Gordon, DISTURBED's David Draiman, and STATIC-X's Wayne Static. The CD is set to be issued on February 19th while the movie is scheduled to open on February 22nd.
