Murderdolls are a collaboration between Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison (who moved over to guitar for this project) and Static-X guitarist Tripp Eisen. Landing somewhere between the aggressive throb of rap-metal and the energetic charge of hardcore punk, Murderdolls formed when the two toured together during the 1999 Ozzfest. Drafting singer Wednesday 13, bassist Eric Griffin, and drummer Ben Graves into the mix, the band recorded and released Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls in 2002. The album sold modestly in the States, and charted in the U.K. and Japan, but by 2004 the group was on an indefinite hiatus. Murderdolls returned in 2010, although without Griffin or Graves, and released their second studio album, Women and Children Last, which featured guest guitar work on two cuts from Mötley Crüe's Mick Mars.
