    Now the Bakersfield boys have taken the meme one step further, posting a video of themselves singing an acapella version of Backstreet Boys I Want It That Way that is understandably blowing up all over Instagram and TikTok. Watch the surreal footage, taken on the set of their new video for Worst Is On Its Way below.

    Nu-metal originators and undisputed icons of heavy music KoЯn dropped their 14th studio album, Requiem in February  Dropping into a heavy music world that is currently vibing a nu-metal renaissance, Requiem was conceived out of very different circumstances than the majority of the band’s catalogue. It is an album born of time and the ability to create without pressure. Energised by a new creative process free of time constraints, the band was able to do things with Requiem that the past two decades haven't always afforded them, such as taking additional time to experiment together or diligently recording to analogue tape – processes which unearthed newfound sonic dimension and texture in their music.  The result is the next genesis of KoЯn

    In the weeks leading up to release, we were fortunate enough to sit down for a lengthy chat with the band's legendary guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer to talk about the creative process and origins of Requiem, the secret to the band's longevity and their influence on current heavy music, taking several detours along the way, to gain insight into what the life and drive of one-half of the metal world's most influential and recognisable guitar duos.
