While in New York City on the "Ballroom Blitz Tour", KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer sat down with the band's record label, Roadrunner Records, to talk about KORN's brand new album, "Korn III: Remember Who You Are".
Taking the eleven blistering tracks into account, Roadrunner asked Munky a little bit about what went into the making of each one.

KORN performed for 80 minutes inside a crop circle during a special North American broadcast this past Sunday (July 11), with the concert now streaming on MySpace and other web sites. Singer Jonathan Davis told The Pulse of Radio that the event was inspired by PINK FLOYD's legendary "Live At Pompeii" gig and should eventually surface on DVD. "We're huge fans of PINK FLOYD's 'Live At Pompeii' and we always wanted to do something like that our whole career, and that's exactly what we did. It's really dark and eerie and kind of like 'Apocalypse Now'. We had a big helicopter buzzing us, filming while we were playing, and it was definitely a one-of-a-kind KORN show. It was very special, and we'll get the footage and re-edit it and hopefully put that out."
The crop circle was created by a U.K. company called CircleMakers and was set in a wheat field near KORN's hometown of Bakersfield, California.
The strange configuration showed up in a series of viral videos that KORN posted online over the last few weeks.
The concert marked the arrival of KORN's ninth album, "Korn III: Remember Who You Are", which came out on Tuesday (July 13).
The band is currently co-headlining the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival with ROB ZOMBIE. Other acts on the 26-date Mayhem run include FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, LAMB OF GOD, ATREYU, IN THIS MOMENT and more.
