Slipknot are definitely moving forward with a new album and, according to frontman Corey Taylor, are confident about 2014, despite the recent departure of Joey Jordison. It’s unclear, however, whether or not the band is actively searching for a new drummer to replace Jordison. Regardless if Slipknot is looking or not, auditions are beginning to surface, and at the top of the pile is former Decapitated drummer, Krimh.
You can watch Krimh wail on the skinsin the embedded videos here as he impressively makes his way through “People = Shit” (above) and “Eyeless” (below).
In the about section accompanying the videos is Krimh’s message for Slipknot:
This is an audition!
There is no official audition going on but I want to give it a shot just in case the band is searching for a new drummer. I have always liked this band and their music.
They influenced me quite a lot in my early years of drumming.
We used no triggering or drum replacements on this recording.All natural sound! Drums were recorded in Vienna AUSTRIA by my friend Norbert Leitner.
I have to say it wasn’t as easy as i thought. This album was recorded without a click track which means you have to really feel this song to play through.
I hope you like it!
What do you think of Krimh’s audition? Personally, I think he’s a beast and these cover auditions are tighter as a tick.
