Today we give you more music from the upcoming Roadrunner United The All-Star Sessions release, one of the songs from captain Joey Jordison, a death metal track titled “Annihilation By The Hands Of God.” The line-up for the track is as follows: Glen Benton (DEICIDE) – vocals Matt DeVries (CHIMAIRA) – rhythm guitar Rob Barrett (CANNIBAL CORPSE, ex-MALEVOLENT CREATION) – rhythm guitar James Murphy (ex-TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY)- solo Steve DiGiorgio (TESTAMENT, SADUS) – fretless bass Joey Jordison (SLIPKNOT) – drums “I had the idea of using Glen Benton on the song before even writing anything,” tells Roadrunner United captain Joey Jordison. “However, instead of writing a typical death metal song, I wanted to do something a little more structured, even hooky, while still maintaining death metal and blast beat aspects.” The result, a technical piece of death metal filled with the individual personalities of members from the bands Deicide, Chimaira, Malevolent Creation, Death, and Sadus…and of course, Slipknot, as Joey himself had written the song prior to the members from the above bands coming to town to record. “Steve (bass) comes out of left field, he’s one of a kind. Rob (guitar) contributed greatly to a black metal tone of the song with his guitar parts over the blast beat sections, and Matt (guitar) with his picking style. Each guy had their own staple on how their parts of the song should go, all of which helped with the overall feel of the song,” Joey praises. When asked for a favorite part of the song, Joey has no comment. “I write songs as a whole, with sections that move from one part to another and all make sense together in some way.” That being said, he does say to check out the searing breakdown, crunch section, right before the last pre-chorus. As for the lyrics, they were all written by Glen himself, so you should have an idea of the lyrical content. If you have trouble following the words for now (lyrics will be posted online upon release of the CD), do know you get four “Satan’s” in a row during the bridge of the song. “I couldn’t be happier with it,” Jordison tells of how “Annihilation By The Hands Of God” turned out. “Probably the favorite song I did…though, hard to pick as each of the four are so different from one another.” With that in mind, check out “Annihilation By The Hands Of God,” now in the ROADRUNNER UNITED MUSIC SECTION section, and come 10th October (release date for Roadrunner United) you’ll be hearing all songs to have come from captain Jordison, and decide first-hand which is your favorite. Enjoy. Roadrunner United The All-Star Sessions coming 10th October
