MÖTLEY CRÜE Guitarist To Guest On New MURDERDOLLS Album

MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars has recorded a guest appearance on the new MURDERDOLLS album, "Women and Children Last".

A photo of Mars in the studio with MURDERDOLLS members Joey Jordison (also of SLIPKNOT) and Wednesday 13 can be viewed below.

In a recent interview with ARTIStdirect.com, Jordison stated about the songwriting process for the new MURDERDOLLS CD, "This is the first time we've actually sat down and written songs. The production is a lot better, and this is the first time we've really collaborated. The first record was a mix of my old band and Wednesday's old band, and we kind of threw it all together. It was just like a demo pretty much. 'Women and Children Last' is like eight years worth of material." Wednesday 13 added, "It wasn't like we got together and said, 'Alright, we're doing this new record. Let's write three weeks' worth of songs.' This is eight years of demos that I've passed back and forth to Joey. With as much stuff as Joey's done with SLIPKNOT and I've done on my own, there was so much material to choose from. I've recorded a lot, and there's stuff that's gotten left behind. Joey digs out all this stuff. I'll say, 'You like that song, really?'"

When asked if "Women and Children Last" preserves that classic Sunset Strip attitude, Wednesday 13 replied, "Kind of…the title more or less exists to piss people off. Even though I'm a hair metal fan, I've become a huge SLAYER fan over the years. With the way the new MURDERDOLLS music sounds, it's everything from that Sunset Strip stuff to SLAYER. It goes everywhere this time — whereas the first record was more punk rock."

"I'm really excited about it," Joey added. "I think it's actually going to reel in a lot of the SLIPKNOT fans because of the heaviness. We're not going to lose any fans; this album is only going to gain fans for us. We weren't like, 'Okay, we're going to crank out some campy songs like we did before.'"

"There are a few songs on the record that are going to appeal to that," Wednesday 13 continued. "However, it's a new sound for us. 'Women and Children Last' is exciting because it sounds different. It's got that element of the old rock 'n' roll we grew up on, but we're down-tuned and it's got a new groove."
