Corey Taylor Thinks™ Slipknot Have “Written Our Heaviest Song on This New Album”
The multi-year album cycle for Slipknot’s latest has begun! Sure, it doesn’t even have a title or release date yet, but that doesn’t matter. We’re currently in Promotion Phase I: Hype the Living Shit out of This Thing. This is the part where even though no one has heard anything yet, members of Slipknot assure all the Maggots that the record will, eventually, change their lives and, indeed, reality as we all know it.
To that end, here’s Corey Taylor discussing the album with Metal Hammer:
“The way we’ve been describing it is, ‘What if the guys who made Iowa matured? What if the kids who made Iowa grew up?’
“That’s kind of the way we’re looking at it because some of this shit is so heavy – but there’s melody, there’s really cool melancholic melody going on.
“Some of this shit is just so hard and dirty fast. It’s fucking really good. It’s also us at our most ambitious, our most experimental, also us doing what we fucking do best which is basically when everybody thinks they’ve got us figured out, we just smack them in the face with everything we’ve got.
“At a time when most bands are slowing down, I think we’ve written our heaviest song – one of them anyway – on this new album.
“It’s going to be fucking crazy. People are going to shit their pants when they hear it.”
So, there you have it. Start stocking up on adult diapers now, because Slipknot are coming to make you shit your pants in 2019. Maybe they’ll call the new album The Brown Chapter, eh?
