Jonathan Davis Of Korn's Electo Band Killbot Releasing EP
MSO sent over this background info: Killbot was formed in January 2012 when JDevil had stumbled upon Sluggo's "The Dark Crystal" track and, as a diehard film of the same name, veritably freaked. The legendary singer began corresponding with the Phoenix-based "metalstep" pioneer and invited him out to his Southern California home to cut some tracks. Meanwhile, Sluggo had just met the California-based rising producer Tyler Blue online (who specializes in dance-heavy bass music), and the two hit the road together for what would be an impromptu jam in JDevil's lair. It was more like a band coming together and less like lonely DJs emailing each other ProTools files.
"We got in my studio and just f**king went for it," recalls JDevil. "It was one of the most natural things I've ever done. I can't really describe it. After 12 hours, we had two songs, and I knew that KILLBOT could be like the Swedish House Mafia of bass musicójust way more evil."
"You can tell right off the bat this is something no one has done before," adds Sluggo. "The three of us bring a lot to the table. We're a good team, and we made something completely original between my 'metalstep,' Tyler's club groove and JDevil's darkness. It's a monster."
