The late Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison was part of many musical side projects, including that of the Murderdolls. The horror-rock act formed in 2002, its core members being that of Jordison and horror-rocker Wednesday 13.
In the time the band were together, the Murderdolls released two studio albums; there is 2002’s Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls, as well as 2010’s Women and Children Last. The music of the Murderdolls was tongue-in-cheek horror related, while also offering riveting instrumentation. A lot of the band’s killer sound was very much thanks to Jordison’s exceptional guitar playing.
Jordison’s passing in 2021 broke a lot of people’s hearts, including that of Wednesday 13. The horror-rocker is currently on tour, and during a recent show of his (that took place on March 23rd), he paid tribute to the late Joey Jordison. Addressing the crowd, Wednesday 13 said:
“This part of the show I’d like to make some noise for our brother Joey Jordison. He left us far too soon. He was one of the most talented people I ever met. And he’s the reason any of you guys know who I am. So we picked a couple of songs, some of my favorite songs we liked to play with Joey. We’re gonna take it back about 12 years ago to the [Murderdolls’ 2010 album] ‘Women And Children Last’. This is called ‘Nowhere’.”
