The list of drummers to play on the then-forthcoming 2003 album included both John Dalmoyan of System of a Down and Joey Jordison of Slipknot, before Dave Grohl filled all the slots.


I believe Raven was a fan of Slipknot, actually.... for
whatever that's worth. I've never been into
Alex in NYC

"Scar the Martyr" is a Slipknot
side-project. They are currently on tour with Korn and Rob
Zombie. Let the hail of rotten vegetables commence...


The deluxe version of Scar The Martyr contains a cover of
‘Complications’ by KILLING JOKE, which appeared on their
debut in 1980. “It’s a super, super catchy song. It’s
got four chords to
it, including the chorus. It’s one of the simplest songs
from one of
the most important bands of the post-punk era; I like
everything about
that song! It’s so hypnotic. Of course I brought up the
tempo; the
Killing Joke version is a lot different. It’s more flow-y,
and this is
more of a charge. I metalled the fuck out of it! But at the
same time it
almost doesn’t sound like a metal track; there’s no
lead guitar solo,
nothing complicated about it. It’s ironic me saying
complicated, but I
just love the words to that song. Killing Joke is one of my
bands, ever. I’ve wanted to cover that song for 15 years.
I’m not really
into covers, but something about that spoke to me. So when
I was in the
studio, I did two takes of it. It’s not a hard song, but
I was so into
it. I made it heavy as shit, but still kept the natural
feeling and I
think it turned out cool. It was fun to do.”


The only place I could find the cover track is on a
skeevy Vietnamese torrent site that I wouldn't touch
with a ten-foot pole. I'll post it if I ever find a
clean copy.
