Slipknot Drummer Plans Side Project

Drummer Joey Jordison of the hard rock band Slipknot, is planning to release a side project this summer.

Slipknot is composed of nine Des Moines-area natives known for grotesque masks and extreme metal music. The band they started in an Urbandale basement in the mid-1990s has captured two Grammy nominations and sold millions of compact discs around the world.

Jordison has teamed up with Tripp Eisen of Static-X to form Murderdolls. They’ll release their debut album, “Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls,” on Aug. 20. Their lyrical inspiration is horror movies. The titles of the songs include “She Was A Teenage Zombie” and “B-Movie Scream Queen.”

Meanwhile, Slipknot singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root have their own side project, Stone Sour, a band to which they both belonged before Slipknot. They will film a video – without their masks – for the song “Get Inside” this weekend in Los Angeles.

They’re also planning a video for the song “Bother,” which is on the “Spider-Man” soundtrack.

The Stone Sour album comes out Sept. 17.
