KoRn/Morbid Angel Members Form Supergroup with Excision

Dub metal is officially the future as Trey Azagthoth and Jonathan Davis have formed a new supergroup with dubstep DJ Excision. In a statement from Davis, “I feel that Morbid Angel were the only other band willing to push metal into the realm of electronica and while “The Path of Totality” was a fun album, it was more of a one-time thing. What’s needed is a supergroup that really pushes boundaries into dubstep since that's really what the future is going to be.”

No news about the rest of the lineup is available but Austrian breakcore DJ/frequent Bephegor collaborator Hecate is rumored to be involved in some capacity. It's unknown what will come of the collaboration but Metal Underground will follow up with news on the supergroup.

I'd be surprised if Davis even knew who Trey and Morbid Angel even is.

#2, that statement made me laugh harder than any prank could. You can't possibly be serious.

He's right, KoRn stole a number of MA riffs in the early days.

Sometimes you want april fools jokes to be true. This is one of those times. Seriously. Excision is better than a lot of the crap in that scene (Skrillex *cough*) so it would be a really interesting project.

it has also been discovered that brian welch or "head" formerly of korn is looking into suing this project claiming he thought of this idea prior to leaving in korn in 2006 via leaving a note then trying to extort the band on royalties he either didnt deserve or already and has been receiving.
story still developing.

Honestly, I prefer Morbid's latest album over both Heretic and Formulas Fatal To The Flesh.
