Slipknot's Haunted House

American rockers Slipknot are recording their new album in a haunted house in Los Angeles.

The WAIT AND BLEED band are also living in the spooky property and drummer JOEY JORDISON admits to being shocked by ghostly goings-on there.

He says, "The house was built in 1918. It's pretty much a mansion and it's very haunted.

"You'll be standing there, getting literally pushed, and look around and there's no-one there who could do that.

"My door would open at 9-9.30am for the first two weeks until I put a brick in front of it to stop that happening."

The sticksman also reveals the band are progressing towards a more experimental sound than on their previous albums.

Joey says, "This time we've got timpanies, we've got MOOG keyboards.

"There's a bunch of weird stuff as far as sounds and experimentation goes. It's a bit more out there and a bit more spacey.

"It's almost as if Slayer was tapping on Radiohead. I don't want to freak anyone out, but that's just where we're at right now."
