Former Decapitated Drummer Krimh Posts Audition Videos for Slipknot

Subscribe to Q103 on

Slipknot and Decapitated may not have too much in common sonically, but former Decapitated drummer Kerim ‘Krimh’ Lechner is hoping to become Slipknot’s new drummer. The heavy-hitting death metal drummer has uploaded footage of himself playing the Slipknot tracks ‘People = S–t’ and ‘Eyeless’ with the hope of getting the attention of the masked Iowa act.

Krimh handled the sticks for Polish death metal legends Decapitated from 2009 through 2012, laying down drum tracks for the band’s fifth studio album, ‘Carnival Is Forever.’ The 24-year-old drumming prodigy has also been a member of Austrian symphonic death metal band Thorns of Ivy, his eponymous metal project and has even performed live with Behemoth in the past.

In the “about” section of Krimh’s Slipknot drumming videos, the percussionist lays out his manifesto:

This is an audition video!
There is no official audition going on but I want to give it a shot just in case the band is searching for a new drummer. I have always liked this band and their music.
They influenced me quite a lot in my early years of drumming.
We used no triggering or drum replacements on this recording. All natural sound! Drums were recorded in Vienna AUSTRIA by my friend Norbert Leitner.
I have to say it wasn’t as easy as i thought. This album was recorded without a click track which means you have to really feel this song to play through.
I hope you like it!


Drummer Joey Jordison and Slipknot parted ways late in the year, shocking fans with the unexpected news. Despite Jordison’s departure, Slipknot are currently writing their fifth studio album. Check out Krimh’s audition videos above and below!
