During the recent interview with Metal Hammer, former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison spoke about his ex-band Slipknot. He said that he have a ton of Slipknot demos.
Here’s the statement:
“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.”
Asked if he still writes music in the style of Slipknot, Jordison responded:
“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.”
