There has been plenty of talk that Slipknot are working on new music for 2014 and now there's some visual proof. Guitarist Jim Root, who is sitting out Stone Sour's winter 2014 tour to work on the new Slipknot album, just offered a new Instagram photo posting showing himself holding a guitar in the studio.
For every school talent show or concert, it seems like there's always one kid or group of kids out to show everyone else what some real music is all about. It's just a theory we have, sort of like Einstein's Theory of Relativity; it's just a theory, but it hasn't been disproved yet! Take a look at Exhibit A in the video above!
Slipknot and Decapitated may not have too much in common sonically, but former Decapitated drummer Kerim 'Krimh' Lechner is hoping to become Slipknot's new drummer. The heavy-hitting death metal drummer has uploaded footage of himself playing the Slipknot tracks 'People = S--t' and 'Eyeless' with the hope of getting the attention of the masked Iowa act.
Although Slipknot recently parted ways with drummer Joey Jordison, the band is far from calling it a day. Slipknot fans are about has dedicated as they come, so vocalist Corey Taylor took a moment to put any doubts to rest with a tweet reinforcing the band's will to continue, even vowing that "great things are coming" in 2014.
