Slipknot member Joey Jordison has unveiled details of his new project, titled Scar The Martyr.

Recorded at Sound Farm Studios in Des Moines, IA, Scar The Martyr's as-yet-untitled debut album was produced by Rhys Fulber, whose production and mixing credits include Fear Factory, Rob Zombie, Mindless Self Indulgence, Front Line Assembly, and more.

The album is slated to arrive later this fall via Roadrunner Records. The label also comments:

"Recognized globally as one of the best drummers in rock, Jordison is both a primary songwriter and the drummer for the Grammy Award winning Slipknot. The Scar The Martyr recording sessions saw him behind the drum kit, while also playing bass on all songs, and rhythm guitar on all but two songs.

"The album was written by Joey 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.

"Scar The Martyr sees Jordison treading in new sonic territory and expanding upon his already remarkable abilities as songwriter and performer. A searing rock record that draws elements from post-punk and industrial music to create an immersive and modern attack, Scar The Martyr creates a menacing and enveloping palette of surging synthesizers layered under heavy guitars and Jordison's trademark precision drumming.
