Glamtastic Photos Of The Murderdolls
Posted on February 12, 2008Check out the gallery for a plethora of glamtastic official photos of the band.
For those who thought life did not exist before Slipknot, here comes Murderdolls, the musical love child of Joey Jordison and Tripp Eisen (Static X). Sadistically comical, Murderdolls draw lyrical inspiration from the Friday the 13th and Night of the Living Dead genre of horror movies. Musically, they are a combination of real punk that mercilessly ruffles the gel-sculpted coifs of your kid sister's bubble-gum pop-rockers and straight up blood and guts rock n' roll. The result is a wildly deranged musical experience with a guitar sound that is equal to a mid-western hailstorm. Originally formed as the Rejects over seven years ago, Murderdolls is Jordison and Tripp Eisen (of Static-X) on guitars, Wednesday 13 on vocals, Eric Griffin on bass, and Ben Graves on drums. Hitting a wall of adversity with the band's previous line-up, Jordison hooked up with Eisen on the Ozzfest tour in '99. After a meeting of the minds, Eisen recruited Wednesday as bassist, who later shifted to lead vocalist. Graves and Griffin were recently added to the line up as drummer and bassist respectively. This motley crew's debut, entitled Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls is set for release on August 19th.
The band is currently out in L.A., still living the life after their photoshoot. Joey has completed the mixing of this album, but word has it that Marilyn Manson just might be doing some vocals on a track.
