The always very busy Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has unveiled a new project and musical endeavor, Scar The Martyr. Scar The Martyr's as-yet-untitled debut album is slated to arrive later this fall through Roadrunner Records. According to the label, this new project merges post-punk elements and industrial music, with synthesizers and heavy guitars.

The album was produced by Rhys Fulber, whose production and mixing credits include Fear Factory, Rob Zombie, Mindless Self Indulgence, Front Line Assembly and more. It was recorded at Sound Farm Studios in Des Moines.




The recording sessions saw him behind the drum kit, while also playing bass on all songs, and rhythm guitar on all but two. The album was written by Joey and lead vocalist Henry Derek, and joining them in the studio were keyboardist Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails), as well as guitarists Jed Simon (Strapping Young Lad) and Kris Norris (Darkest Hour) who collectively handled all lead guitars on the album.

Jordison explained: "With this project, I focused my efforts on writing for the better of the song. I wasn't worried about flash or persona... It's all about writing a good solid song. I'm writing music that people can grasp and hold on to... something that resonates. If you don't have that, then you have nothing."

So i take it there won't be a new Slipknot album? This new project of his could turn out to be something worth listening to

Slipknot will always have a new album coming out, Roadrunner will make sure of that.

Looks like Joey Jordison is losing a battle with eyebrows. How unfortunate.

An 8-string within the realm of post-punk. That's interesting. I'm not a fan of Slipknot or nu metal in general, but I've always thought this guy was a great drummer. I look forward to listening to this. I really hope it's outside of the radio friendly type shit...

What happened to Murderdolls?


Their second album is what happened..
psykometal - 24.06.2013 at 02:30  
^Yea, Murderdolls is one of those supergroup/novelty bands that worked the first time because it was a bunch of friends from different bands who came together and wrote a bunch of music together on whim with a specific purpose of breaking out of the mold of their original bands and doing something different. And because of that they should never have tried to continue past the one release, the second album was just boring and uninspired.

Well, then it sounds exactly what Linkin Fart members did. One went onto grouped Fort Minor while other was just wanking around "Dead Sunrise".

I asked about Murderdolls in context of what Joey want to do i.e. to play some crazy ass guitars which inefficiently he didn't accomplish to a single ounce.

Murderdolls was never about "crazy ass guitars" for Joey, he wanted to do something that wasn't Slipknot or playing drums. There aren't even any "crazy ass guitars" in Murderdolls, especially not from Joey. Joey played mostly rhythm guitar on both albums, and lead guitars on the first album were primarily by Tripp Eisen and Wednesday 13 and on the second album lead guitars were primarily by Wednesday 13.

This might not be shitty.
