Slipknot's Joey Jordison Announces Scar The Martyr Project
The debut album from the project was produced by Rhys Fulber (Fear Factory, Rob Zombie, Mindless Self Indulgence) at Sound Farm Studios in Des Moines, IA.
The labels says that the recording sessions saw Jordison behind the drum kit, while also playing bass on all songs, and rhythm guitar on all but two songs. The album was written by Jordison and lead vocalist Henry Derek, and joining them in the studio were keyboardist Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails), as well as guitarists Jed Simon (Strapping Young Lad) and Kris Norris (Darkest Hour) who collectively handled all lead guitars on the album.
"With this project, I focused my efforts on writing for the better of the song," says Jordison. "I wasn't worried about flash or persona... It's all about writing a good solid song. I'm writing music that people can grasp and hold on to...something that resonates. If you don't have that, then you have nothing."
