The Four Best DJs for Metalheads
"First off, I'd say myself. I've got music on the horizon that really implies guitar. I'm doing some music with Wes Geer, who's Korn's touring guitarist. He used to be in (hed)p.e. Then, I've got Killbot with Jonathan Davis of Korn [J Devil] and Tyler Blue, which is going to be sick."
"There's another group called Mantis out of Atlanta. Those guys are actually doing this super heavy deathstep-style music. They're background is metal and hardcore. One of them used to sing for a metal band. They're super dope. That might hopefully get some metal and hardcore fans listening to electronic music."
"There's a guy out of Venezuela named Zardonic. He's been doing the heavy metal-style electronic music for years. "
"J Devil isn't even dubstep. His music is electro goth-step. It's a completely different sound. People identify with Jonathan, and they'll be able to vibe on it. I like his originality. I like that he's doing something different, heavy, and original. It's not like he's doing something anyone has done before."
