Well, well, Slipknot maggots sit down for this one. Or maybe not. Maybe have an involuntarily, neck-spasming head-bang to this stonking slice of news....
During an interview with Metal Hammer, frontman CoreyTaylor revealed, "I think we've written our heaviest song -- one of them anyway -- on this new album."
“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,"
Me oh my.
Taylor was probed about how he'd describe the new album: “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."
I think we've written our heaviest song.
Get into our earholes already.
Signs are pointing to a mid-2019 release, alongside a huge world tour.
We do enjoy that. Yes boy.
