The Mendenhall Experiment have released a music video for their track “Prosthetic“. The song and video feature a cameo from Korn guitarist James “Munky” Schaffer. The track appears on The Mendenhall Experiment‘s self-titled 2017 EP. Speaking to Metal Hammer of the collaboration, the band’s guitarist and founder Brandon Mendenhall offered:

“Working alongside my hero, James ‘Munky’ Shaffer from Korn, to create ‘Prosthetic‘ was a dream come true. It was also one of the scariest ‘sink or swim’ moments of my career, and in the end, I feel like it is a testament to how far I’ve come as a musician.

It was also great working as a band with our vocalist Mario Valadez to craft a lyrical landscape that not only tells the story of my journey, but also makes ‘Prosthetic‘ an anthem against discrimination. Reminding us all that no matter what divisions in life we may face, we are not alone and we’ll get through them together.”

Shaffer commented:

“[He] is a big inspiration, not only for myself but it should be for lots of people that not only want to get into music, but that want to follow their dreams in anything.”

Mendenhall himself was born with cerebral palsy and through determination and hard work managed to largely overcome the disability. His journey was chronicled in the 2019 film ‘Mind Over Matter‘, which is available now on Amazon Prime. A new album from The Mendenhall Experiement titled “Against All Odds” is currently in production for a 2021 release.
