After recently teasing fans with rumours of their musical cross-pollination, metal heavyweights Marilyn Manson and Korn frontman Jonathan Davis have revealed more details about their impending collab.
But rather than the nu-metal-shock-rock output that one might expect, the pair have instead surprised fans by making a joint foray into uncharted territory.
As Blabbermouth reports, Manson has revealed via radio interview that he’s been working on “southern-sounding” acoustic blues material, featuring Davis.
“That’s some of the plans of the style of music that I’m working on right now. I don’t know what it’ll turn into,” he wrote. “Some of it will be with Jonathan Davis, I think, because he has plans of doing something similar — something that might even cross over the boundaries of being more Southern-sounding.”
The Soundwave 2015 alumnus also added: “I did record [1995 EP] Smells Like Children in Mississippi, which is where the blues came from, so there might be something more acoustic and blues in my future. I like the rawness of it.”
Manson and Davis last joined forces in 2002 on the song Redeemer from the soundtrack of Queen Of The Damned, which you can re-live, below.
