The band's guitarist Jim Root claims they need a big healing process before deciding to 'think about whether or not Slipknot will continue.'

have yet to decide whether or not to continue as a band following the death of bandmate Paul Gray because recording and performing again without the bassist is almost unthinkable. The heavy rocker, 38, was found dead in a suburban Des Moines, Iowa hotel on May 24. Toxicology and final autopsy reports have revealed Gray died from an accidental overdose.

His Slipknot bandmates have been left devastated by the tragedy and guitarist Jim Root insists the group needs time to grieve before even contemplating continuing to make music together. He says, "There's going to be a big healing process that needs to happen before we even think about whether or not Slipknot will continue. And right now that's the furthest thing from our mind."

"Right now we are just grieving or trying to find time to grieve anyway for the fact that our bro's gone. It's weird because some days I don't even think it's real, so that one's not going to make sense for a while." Root adds it will be "probably two years at least" before the band regroups.
