LOS ANGELES — At the FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine in late August, the SoCal metal band Korn walked offstage from its sold-out co-headline set with Alice in Chains. The five members were sweaty but relaxed, freshly changed from their all-black denim and leather stage outfits into all-black sweatpants and T-shirts.

In a small trailer where they stashed their Chinese takeout and coconut water, guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer, 49, popped in for a beverage. Behind him, a 16-year-old guitarist gingerly followed, introducing herself to say she had been working on her own Korn-inspired chops.
