Drummer Will Hunt (EVANESCENCE, STATIC-X, DARK NEW DAY, TOMMY LEE) has revealed to TuneLab.com that he recently recorded a guest appearance on the forthcoming sophomore album from MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee's METHODS OF MAYHEM project.
"People are gonna be very surprised when they hear that record," Hunt said. "It's very different than anything he's done. It's still very cool, there's some very melodic, commercial stuff on it, but the bulk of the record is very heavy, grungy, DEFTONES-sounding stuff. And it's just really cool."
DJ Aero and guitarist Kai Marcus are still onboard for the new METHODS OF MAYHEM album, and Lee's producing partner Scott Humphrey is also said to be involved.
Lee formed METHODS OF MAYHEM in 1999 after he left MÖTLEY CRÜE. The all-star project collaboration with rapper TiLo featured input from LIMP BIZKIT's Fred Durst, THE CRYSTAL METHOD, Kid Rock, Snoop Dogg, and Mix Master Mike. After signing to MCA, METHODS OF MAYHEM issued its self-titled debut LP in late 1999.
