Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison says the band have assembled so many riffs for their highly-anticipated comeback album that it there's a chance it could turn out to be a double-length release.
They haven't yet started work properly on what will be their first record since the death of bassist Paul Gray in 2010, due next year.
But Jordison tells ArtistDirect: "Whenever I pick up a guitar and I'm not doing anything, I'm always writing riffs. That's all we're doing. We've all got a shitload of riffs. Even though we haven't gotten together, there's plenty of material there.
"We talk to each other all the time on our cellphones and all of that when we're on tour in different spots of the world. We're all working. It hasn't found its time yet – we're continuing to write though.
"We're going to have so much shit, it might have to be a double record!"
Meanwhile, Jordison is pleased with the response to the first album by his latest band Scar The Martyr – and he says he'd like people to listen to it from beginning to end rather than just dip in.
"When I was writing that shit, I'd complete a track and be like, 'Alright, what am I feeling? What would be cool after this track? What am I hearing in my head right now? Where should I go?' It wasn't like I was writing a song and saying, 'Oh, we'll just try to fit it in somewhere.'
"Every song was an emotional result of a previous song."
