Joey Jordison Has ‘a Ton’ of Unreleased Slipknot Songs
Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has revealed to Metal Hammer that he is in possession of unreleased songs from his former group. "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." he said. "I won’t use them for anyone else besides Slipknot, if that ever happens again.”
On whether or not he "still writes music in the style of Slipknot," Jordison replied, "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."
He continued, “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.”
A week ago today (Oct. 31), Slipknot released their new song, "All Out Life." Jordison has yet to publicly comment on the track.
