Slipknot Drummer Joey Jordison's first side-project, and also the reason the mass-public got to see what he looked like without his mask (not much difference, really). Also, Tripp Eisen of Static-X makes an appearance as the second guitar* player.

The Murderdolls are:

  1. Wednesday 13 - Vocals
  2. Joey Jordison - Guitar
  3. Tripp Eisen - Guitar
  4. Eric Griffin - Bass
  5. Ben Graves - Drums

They are essentially an '80s Shlock-horror group, similar to Alice Cooper and the like, except heavier. They originally started out as The Rejects a long, long time ago. long before Slipknot hit the big time. Joey met Eisen while touring with Dope in '99, and the guitarist recruited Wednesday as a bassist. Later on, the bassist impressed the others with his song-writing ability and became lead singer, and Eric Griffin took his place. Ben Graves finished off the current lineup.

They have, to this date, only played a few shows - this being after they started recording, as Joey hadn't even met Wednesday until he entered the studio.
