Slipknot On Percussion

Some more insight from the upcoming SLIPKNOT album has been released from Chris Fehn, in an interview conducted January 1st. Over 30 snare drums, and 3 drummers, have taken part in various songs on the new album. Here's the full scoop:
"There are songs already with like 30 snare drums that the 3 drummers played on. We really took our time with the percussion on this record, a lot of different instruments were played, whether they make the record or not we don't know yet. Every avenue was explored and everything in the studio was beat on for sounds for this record. It's tough sometimes to find a place to fit in with Joey but we really took our time so you would know for sure that there were other drummers playing during the songs.
On this new record you'll better be able to see what we actually do as percussionists in this band and how it adds to the dynamics of the songs. Joey is also an amazing drummer and probably could hold down the band on his own, however if I was to watch a band, I'd want as many psychos on the stage to watch as possible. This band was started with the percussionists in mind, and a lot of songs were written around the additional percussion. It just wouldn't be Slipknot without it."
