SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison has teamed up with NECROPHAGIA frontman Killjoy in a black metal project called HELLPIG.

"It's going to be insane!" Jordison told Britain's Rock Sound magazine. "Since I play guitar in MURDERDOLLS and it's more of a rock 'n' roll glammy vibe. People might be thinking, 'What the hell is he doing that for?' I'm going to put out a record that has the most insane drumming I've ever fucking done, I'm just going to blast shit so fucking fast! We're going to do that later on this year. Killjoy actually offered me NECROPHAGIA's drum slot right now but I couldn't do it because I'm doing MURDERDOLLS."

Joey also spoke about the inspiration behind the aforementioned MURDERDOLLS, the new band he formed with singer Wednesday 13 (formerly of North Carolina horror-metal outfit FRANKENSTEIN DRAG QUEENS FROM PLANET 13),ex-DOPE/current STATIC-X guitarist Tripp Eisen, bassist Erik Griffin and drummer Ben Graves.

"We're not trying to reinvent the wheel, we don't think we're the most original thing, but I do think the fun aspect for a lot of live shows and a lot of humor is missing right now and the tongue-in-cheek shit," Jordison told the magazine. "Rock 'n' roll's kinda gone over-emotional and you have to fucking mathematically dissect all the lyrics now. I love that stuff too, and being in SLIPKNOT I get that all out there, but just letting loose a bit more is where this comes in great and totally handy!"

MURDERDOLLS are due to release their debut album, entitled Beneath The Valley Of The Murderdolls, on August 20th through Roadrunner Records.
