PRONG's TOMMY VICTOR Talks To IMPACT Metal Channel (Video)
Impact metal channel conducted an interview with PRONG guitarist/vocalist Tommy Victor before the band's August 7 concert in Dublin, Ireland. You can now watch the chat below. PRONG is touring North America in support of its latest release, "Ruining Lives", which came out earlier this year via SPV/Steamhammer. The tour kicked off on September 10 in Los Angeles, California and will run through October 14 in San Francisco, California. Many of the dates will see PRONG playing alongside thrash masters OVERKILL. Following a quick break, the band will take part in SLIPKNOT's Knotfest on October 25 in San Bernardino, California. PRONG recently completed filming a video for the song "Remove, Separate Self", taken from "Ruining Lives". Brian Cox and Marcelo Palomino directed the clip, which can be seen below. Comments PRONG mainman Tommy Victor: "PRONG has made a video for the song 'Remove, Separate Self', the new single from our recent LP, 'Ruining Lives'. The song and the video are distinctively PRONG, with a soul-searching and apocalyptic vibe. As a follow-up to 'Turnover', we will release it on seven-inch vinyl as well. The single and video will correspond with our U.S./Canada tour starting September 10 through October 14. Enjoy the video and we'll see you out on the road!" SPV/Steamhammer released a new digital single of "Remove, Separate Self". There are two versions of the single, which was made available on September 12. The seven-inch single will be released on October 24. The standard version of the single will include the following tracks: 01. Remove, Separate Self (album version) 02. "Separate Self, Remove" inspired by and created from "Remove, Separate Self" by PRONG (Matt Heafy de-mix) Comments TRIVIUM's Matt Heafy about the "de-mix" he created: "With 'Remove, Separate Self', I was initially engulfed by hints of images and characteristics of a futuristic, dystopian world. Whether that was the initial intent of the piece or it was meant to be something entirely different, that became the feeling I kept coming back to. Perhaps with the main line — the title itself — the idea of 'separating yourself' made me think of unplugging oneself from something larger; whether metaphorically from an old way of life or literally in some sort of mecha-future. The idea was to take it one step further, to take the song itself, components of it, and a few secret ingredients, and create that world a little further that I imagined in the first place. "Sometimes 'remixes' do it right, but I wanted to take a completely different approach to what people think a 'remix' is in the first place, even one's idea of what a song should sound like." The exclusive iTunes edition of the single features a bonus track, which is a version of "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck". This song was taken from PRONG's "Unleashed In The West - Official Bootleg".

SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR: Firing JOEY JORDISON 'Was One Of The Hardest Decisions We Ever Made'
SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor says that firing Joey Jordison, the band's drummer of 18 years, was "one of the hardest decisions" the group ever made, but insists that he and his bandmates are "happy" to have moved on. SLIPKNOT announced its split with Jordison in December 2013 but did not disclose the reasons for his exit. The drummer subsequently issued a statement saying that he did not quit the group. Speaking to UK's Metal Hammer for the magazine's October 2014 issue, Taylor stated about Joey's departure from SLIPKNOT: "I can't talk too much about it because we're going through the legalities of everything right now and settling everything, but it's when a relationship hits that T-section and one person's going one way and you're going the other. And try as you might to either get them to go your way or try and go their way, at some point you've got to go in the direction that works for you. This is me speaking in the broadest terms, with respect to Joey. I guess to sum it up, it was one of the hardest decisions we ever made." He continued: "We're all happy right now and we hope that he is. I've known him since '91, and that was before we were in bands together, and he's incredibly talented; he's just in a place in his life, right now, that's not where we are... in the nicest terms." Asked to address rumors that Joey's dismissal from SLIPKNOT was drug related, Corey replied: "There's only so far that I can give an explanation. For me, that has to be a sign of growing up, because before I would've just railed at whatever I thought the supposed evil was, but now it's like, how do you explain to the fans? And that's the hardest part, because no matter what explanation you give, it's not gonna make them happy. I'm sure there are fans out there who have their own theories about it…" According to Corey, he no longer has a relationship with Jordison. "I haven't talked to Joey in a while, to be honest," he told the magazine. "That's how different we are. It's not because I don't love him and I don't miss him. And it is painful; we talk about him all the time, but at the same time, do we miss him or do we miss the old him? That's what it really comes down to. It's just a fucking shame." SLIPKNOT on Friday (September 12) revealed its new masks and its new members — at least what they look like — in the video for "The Devil In I", the first single from the band's upcoming album ".5: The Gray Chapter". The clip, directed by percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan, shows off the new headgear worn by the seven original members, while giving us brief glimpses of the band's new drummer and bassist, who are both wearing the same mask. The band has not revealed the identity of either new member, but now new evidence has surfaced online that the man replacing Gray is named Alessandro "Vman" Venturella. Venturella has served as a guitar tech for MASTODON, COHEED AND CAMBRIA and others, while also playing in the band KROKODIL. A side-by-side comparison of Venturella's distinctive hand tattoo and that from the person playing bass in the "The Devil In I" video reveals that they appear to be the same. SLIPKNOT's new drummer is widely believed to be Jay Weinberg, son of longtime Bruce Springsteen drummer Max Weinberg. ".5: The Gray Chapter", SLIPKNOT's fifth studio album, arrives on October 21 and is the band's first without Jordison and bassist Paul Gray, who died in May 2010. metalhammerslipknotcover
