Stone Sour’s Roy Mayorga Planning To Release An “Experimental” Solo Album

During an appearance on the Talking Metal podcast, Stone Sour drummer Roy Mayorga revealed that he is planning to record and release a new solo album next year. He said the following about that:

“I don’t know if a lot of people out there know what I do other than play drums, but I also compose a lot of music for indie films and commercials and stuff like that, on the down time. I use a lot of hardware modular synthesizers. So the material on the record that I’m gonna be working on is gonna be mostly just drums and modular synthesizers. No format of verse-chorus-verse-chorus; it’s gonna be pretty experimental and improvisational. I’m hoping to do a nice 16 minutes a side of a record — kind of the old-school style. The way you would hear a Tangerine Dram record or a Jean-Michel Jarre record — those old electronic records from the ’70s. But it’s not gonna sound like that; it’s gonna be more in that format.”
