In the March issue of Sweden's premiere rock/metal magazine Close-Up, SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison talks about playing the song "The Blister" from the band's upcoming album, "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)", for NINE INCH NAILS mainmain Trent Reznor.

"Me and Greg [Fidelman], our engineer, were sitting at the mixing desk listening to this shit. [Producer Rick] Rubin comes down — this is at his house — with Trent and I shake Trent's hand. Rubin tells Greg, 'Why don't you just play that song, let Trent hear it.' I fucking cranked it up, and right after the song, Trent was like, 'Dude, I gotta go lay down, I feel like a pussy now!' It was awesome! That's Trent Reznor right behind me. It was cool. A really, really humbling experience, the fact that he would say something like that about our new record. He's a lovely guy."

SLIPKNOT's "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" is scheduled for release on May 25 through Roadrunner Records. The band are currently preparing to hit the road as part of the fourth installment of the Jägermeister Music Tour, beginning March 30 in Orlando, Florida. FEAR FACTORY and CHIMAIRA are also onboard for the five-week trek, which wraps up May 14 in Sacramento.

this goes out to whoever "maggot_boy_666" is.....hey man, it's cool that slipknot is your favorite band and you're allowed your own opinion's as am i. i just find it comical you say "if they're not your favorite band then your taste in music sucks" what about some one who's favorite band happens to be slayer, or megadeth, those bands have more talent the slipknot does. don't get me wrong i love slipknot as next as the next guy, but try to think before you say such a bold statement. i'm not trying to piss you off or to even put you down for your belief's but i'm just getting mine across as well...

I think slipknot is a really f***ing good band. They are my favorite in the f***ing world but they were inspired by someone like slayer, or megadeth, or one of them crazy son of a b****es but a hell of a lot of people look at slipknot and say those guys look like f***in wierdo's but the looks dont count the music is what its all about and slipknot can rock harder then any of the other guys out there. SLIPKNOT is the best concert i ever went to and there new album is gonna kick a$$ man i just hope theres a drum solo that will kick ass.
