Next John 5 LP being recorded
2014-05-03 by Jack Knapman | 14 Comments

Current guitarist of Rob Zombie, and former guitarist of Marilyn Manson, John 5, is in the midst of recording his seventh full-length solo studio album.

As revealed on the guitarist's official website, the new album, entitled Careful With That Axe, will feature contributions from Rodger Carter on drums, and Dylan Wilson on
bass, as well as numerous other special guest musicians.

As well as this, accompanying the album will be a DVD mini-series documenting the production process, as directed by Jonny Coffin (former guitarist of Dia de los Muertos), similar
to the DVD that was packaged with John 5's previous LP God Told Me To.

However, this album's production may be long and arduous, as at present, John 5 is currently on tour with Rob Zombie to support their latest album. As a result Careful With
That Axe
has no current release date.

Hope the dvd isn't as obscure as the other ones he's done. I want a solid making of, yo.

Everything i've heard of his (which admittedly isn't much) has been really showy but extremely uninteresting. What's a good song/album/whatever to check out?

All the albums are worth a spin, bud. I think the album Vertigo shows best on his ability to play different styles, but all his albums bring something for you to take.

Depends if you like instrumental albums. But John doesn't use any pedals, if I'm not mistaken, so all the crazy shit you hear is him and that Tele!

Art of Malice is his best imo. It's quirky, it's fun, it's exhilarating, it's fast, and it ultimately feels like the soundtrack to a big-budget action film.

But yeah, they're all pretty good in their own right, with the exception of Requiem.

Yeah totally agreed, Froot. I'd probably say AoM is my favourtie, too. Requiem being the weakest.
