Background

Formed in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1995, Slipknot was a nine-member alternative metal band whose members adopted numerals as performing aliases; the stabilized lineup, in order from 0 to 8, included DJ Sid Wilson, drummer Joey Jordison, bassist Paul Grey, percussionist Chris Fehn, guitarist James Root, sampler/programmer Craig Jones, percussionist Shawn Crahan, guitarist Mic Thompson, and vocalist Corey Taylor.

In 1996, the group self-released an album titled Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat. and attracted the attention of several labels, including Roadrunner, which signed the band the following year. Slipknot's eponymous official debut was released in 1999.

Slipknot has been a wide attraction on Ozzfest. Many people want to see what makes this band tick. With nine members, halloween masks, and metal they certainly are an attraction.

Satyricon To Hold Drummer Auditions In Los Angeles

Norwegian black metallers SATYRICON will be auditioning drummers in Los Angeles the last week of November (possibly Nov. 24-25) to join them on tour in North America during the coming months.

The never-ending saga of SATYRICON drummer Frost's inability to enter the U.S. due to heightened homeland security has forced SATYRICON frontman Satyr to seek a temporary touring replacement. The band will still be utilizing the services of SLIPKNOT's Joey Jordison on their upcoming headlining U.S. trek, which is scheduled to kick off December 2 in San Francisco, CA.

All drummers interested in auditioning for SATYRICON should contact Hamps Koulayan at the group's record label, EatUrMusic: hamps@eaturmusic.com.

Satyricon US Tour Plans, Including Joey Jordison

On December 2nd SATYRICON will kick off their second US tour of the year. The tour will include SLIPKNOT's Joey Jordison on drums, who will be acting as a replacement for drummer Frost who's inability to enter the US has been due to heightened homeland security. Frontman Satyr had this to say about touring the US, "Frost's Visa to enter the States case has made everything extremely difficult for us and there have even been times I've thought to give up on touring America.”

...but carried on to say, “I'm just very glad that we have a new tour lined up. I think all of our fans stateside will agree that SATYRICON deserve a better chance to establish the band and our style of music we believe in than, more so than we've had so far.

I think our music, our effort and all the people who believe in SATYRICON in the US want us to succeed and Joey Jordison is a good example of that. I never had to convince him that touring with Satyricon would be "cool". It was rather a question of overcoming the practical obstacles with Joey being a key member of a very successful band. His enthusiasm and skills are exactly what SATYRICON needs to raise the spirit in the camp. I have looked for drummers over here and most of them are afraid they can't match Frost's level of drumming so they pull out before we even get started with them. Joey and I have spent a lot of time making sure he is well prepared and it is nice to be able to fulfill the wishes of all the fans I talked to on the MORBID ANGEL tour who wanted to see us play in America. SATYRICON is coming back!"

Dates lined up so far include (subject to change): More...

Slipknot's Craig Jones To Miss Shows In Europe

SLIPKNOT's "samples and media" guy, Craig Jones #133 (a.k.a. #5), has been forced to sit out the early portion of the group's current European tour due to a "medical emergency." The band's official statement on the matter reads as follows:

"We've made it thru 10 years without a member of SLIPKNOT missing a single show, but due to emergency medical reasons one of our brothers has been forced to return to Des Moines, IA.

"Craig Jones #133 ( #5), has been suffering incredible pain during the first week of our European tour and has been unable to eat or sleep properly. Therefore, a decision was made for him to return to the States for emergency dental surgery.

"We made a band decision to continue the tour without Craig and to not let our European fans and friends down. The shows and fans, on this tour, have been some of the most insane of our career and we look forward to that each night.

"We expect to have 133 rejoin the tour within the next 3-4 weeks, but until that time Sid Wilson will be handling the majority of his parts.

"We'll miss him on and off stage and wish him the best and a safe return."
