Hip-hop pioneer DMC is planning to dabble a little bit in the heavy metal genre. In his forthcoming solo project will be what he described as Run-DMC’s 1985 album King of Rock “on steroids”.

He’s taken inspirations from the likes of Korn and Limp Bizkit. Speaking with DMC, whose real name is Darryl McDaniel, said:

“It’s going to be fun, and I worked with the best producers and musicians in the business. The majority of the music is all live music instruments. The reason why I say ‘King of Rock’ on steroids was because you had beats and guitars being played.”

“This album is completely live. I think what I’m trying to do with this album, if you look at rockers Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Kid Rock said ‘Run-DMC and Aerosmith had a baby and I popped out.’ ”

While some may be surprised by DMC’s new musical direction he says, “We [Run-DMC] were universal. We were rock and rap. So this record is saying, ‘OK, you say we created this now this is how we did it.”
