KORN Touring Guitarist SHANE GIBSON Departs For Solo Project

KORN touring guitarist Shane Gibson has announced his departure from the band to pursue his solo project, the Los Angeles-based aggressive-progressive, experimental, instrumental metal power trio STORK, with "super drummer" Thomas Lang. Combining thrash metal with progressive rock, STORK's self-titled debut will be available in stores in November.

Best known for his soloing, Shane Gibson's frequent use of odd time signatures, heavy riffing, poly-rhythms, innovative tapping sequences and his impressive sweep picking technique provides 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 — who was recently named one of Rhythm magazine's "Top 20 Most Influential Drummers of the Past 25 Years," 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.

Rounding out this ultra power trio is Eloy Palacios (VENSION) on bass. Palacios is 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.

Intense, dark, aggressive, futuristic and somehow familiar, STORK sounds like nothing you've ever heard — but always hoped you would.
