Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has revealed that he has a pile of unreleased Slipknot demos.
In an exclusive interview with Metal Hammer, Jordison said, “I have a ton of Slipknot demos that I have at home. Maybe some day they’ll surface, maybe they’ll never be heard, but I don’t translate them to any other band, they still stay in the Slipknot safe. I won’t use them for anyone else besides Slipknot, if that ever happens again.”
When asked whether he still writes music in the style of Slipknot, Jordison said, “It depends. I play guitar all the time and I’m constantly thinking of songs. I sleep music. I wake up and there’s a riff in my head, every step I take there’s a riff, a beat, or something. That’s the way a musician is. You’re isolated in a weird way because music is haunting you as much as it’s loving you. It’s non-stop.”
“Every time I pick up a guitar, I come up with different riffs, all different bands I’ve been in, sometimes there is a song or riff that could only belong with Slipknot and I just can’t use it for anything else, regardless of whatever happened. It just stays in the bank and I can’t use it for anything else, I just won’t do it.”
Jordison was interviewed for the latest issue of Metal Hammer along with singer Corey Taylor and percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan in celebration of the band’s 10th anniversary of All Hope Is Gone.
Last week, Slipknot had dropped a new single “All Out Life,” a track that will appear on the band’s upcoming follow-up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter album.
