Ex-Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has told Metal Hammer, that he has a bunch of unreleased, unheard Slipknot demos at home. Telling the Magazine about his secret demo’s saying, “I have a ton of Slipknot demos that I have at home, 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.”

Jordison continued to tell Metal Hammer, “I won’t use them [demos] for anyone else besides Slipknot. If that ever happens again, 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. Every time I pick up a guitar, I come up with different riffs [for] 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.”

Jordison has not performed with the band for at-least the last five years, being replaced by drummer, Jay Weinberg in 2014. However, Jordison is contemplating a possible reunion in the future. Joey recently revealed that he is working on his first-ever book.

What do you think? Do you want to hear these unreleased demos from Slipknot?
