Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has expanded on the band’s plans for a new album in 2019, claiming that the follow-up to the group’s 2014 album .5: The Gray Chapter will be their “most experimental” yet.
In a new interview with Metal Hammer, the vocalist said Slipknot’s upcoming album is “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”.
The news should be thrilling to fans of the band’s second studio album, Iowa.
“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?'” Taylor said.
He also said, “[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.”
While we hope no one does lose control of their bowels from distorted riffs or thrashing percussion, we’re psyched.
