This could be mildly interesting. Jordinson is a fairly solid drummer.

It's gotta be better than Slipknot. I'll give it a chance; Jordison is a pretty creative drummer

That's a solid lineup. Hope they change their name by the time they get to the EP stage, but I doubt it.

Don't really care about the band name. With that lineup the music should be pretty awesome.

Did Jed Simon even write any of Strapping Young Lad's music? It was pretty much just Devin Townsend wasn't it?

Nah Jed wrote a lot of the stuff from the self titled and onward. Particularly on SYL where Devy was busy with Accelerated Evolution so Jed wrote most of the riffs and ended up recording the majority too.

Plus Jed writes most of the stuff for Zimmers Hole which is awesome.
