Joey Jordison: 'Slipknot Will Always Exist'
Joey Jordison has been talking to Metal Hammer about new project Scar the Martyr and the status of Slipknot. As Jordison notes, while his focus is currently on the new project, he doesn't see Slipknot going away anytime soon: "I always look at Slipknot as a gig for life. In a good way and a bad way. It'll never go away. It's a virus. Slipknot will always exist, and we can't be disrespectful to the f--king art and craft that we created and gave so much to, and that allows us to do all of these other projects. So there's always gonna be Slipknot." Jordison also reflected on Scar the Martyr's debut album, which was recently released on Roadrunner Records: "I'm really proud of it. It was mine during the recording and the mixing, but now that it's done, it belongs to other people. It's someone else's music now, to enhance their lives or see hat they get out of it. Maybe it'll inspire them, and hopefully they enjoy it. That's the whole point of this, to reach people and try to connect on a musical level, because honestly, I really do think that music makes the world go round. It's the universal language. And as long as I can connect with that one person, I'm happy."
