Scar the Martyr Reveal Their First Song ‘Blood Host’

Scar the Martyr Blood Host

Scar the Martyr, the new project of Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison, have shared their first single ‘Blood Host’ from their self-titled album, out Oct. 1.

‘Blood Host,’ which debuted at Revolver, is melodically–tinged hard rock that takes its time making its points at seven minutes in length. Fueled by crunchy riffs and the alternately screamed and sung vocals of newcomer Henry Derek, Scar the Martyr are not a lite version of Jordison’s main band. In fact, they grab your attention on their own merits with the song, which consists of a drum-driven breakdown outro and the inescapably catchy chorus.

“It’s very coincidental that ‘Blood Host’ is our first track and video because it was the first song I wrote for this project when it was nothing but a mere idea at best,” the skins pounder, who played multiple instruments during the album’s recording, told Revolver. “Songs, of course, followed, and molded into an overall feel, concept, and now a full-length album. ‘Blood Host’ has it all: hypnotic riffs, soaring choruses, pummeling breakdowns, and the lyrics are infectious in every sense. We are very proud of the track and it pretty much lets you know where we are coming from, musically, and what we are all about live. Scar the Martyr, up close and personal.”
