As any diehard Maggot knows, bassist Paul Gray and drummer Joey Jordison were Slipknot's main songwriters until the former's death in 2010 and the latter's split with the group three years later. According to Jordison, in a recent interview with Metal Hammer, he left the Nine with a stockpile of demos for songs that may never see the light of day — a tantalizing revelation for fans of the band's classic material.
"I have a ton of Slipknot demos that I have at home," revealed the drummer, who currently plays in the extreme-metal supergroup Sinsaenum. "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 if 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. ... 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."
