'People Are Gonna Lose Their Minds When They Hear' New Album

 

SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor says fans "will lose their minds" when they hear the band's long-awaited new studio album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Roadrunner Records.

Speaking to Kristyn Clark of Pop Culture Madness on the red carpet of last week's "Monster Energy Roast On The Range With Corey Taylor" event in Columbus, Ohio, Corey said about his plans for the rest of 2014: "The rest of the summer is just finishing up a certain album [referring to SLIPKNOT's new CD]. And that's about it, really. I've got a handful of shows that I'm doing with STONE SOUR in July, and then everything is SLIPKNOT."

Pressed about the direction of the new SLIPKNOT material, Taylor said: "I will say that, at the moment, right now, it feels like a great mesh of [2001's] 'Iowa' and [2004's] 'Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)'. You've got the gorgeous melodies and the artistic direction of 'Vol. 3' and then you've got the absolute brutality of 'Iowa'. And I think people are gonna lose their minds when they hear it."

Taylor said in an interview with Front Row Live Entertainment on May 12 that the band's first album in six years is "coming along," adding, "I actually left the studio to come right down here. So it's a matter of time, trust me. It's gonna be rad . . . Everything is going exactly how it needs to go. So it's gonna be really awesome."

Even though SLIPKNOT's last album, "All Hope Is Gone", came out in 2008, Taylor said, "The good thing is we've always been writing, so there's a ton of stuff that we're pretty stoked on. It's exactly what you want it to be."

SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he has high hopes for the band's next album. "That record is going to be, I predict, one of the most serious things that we will have ever comprehended that we've ever done in our life," he said. "And we pretty much say that on every record, but I really feel that when the time comes, what will be on hand is going to be something almost unimaginable."

The new SLIPKNOT album will be the band's first since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray and the late 2013 dismissal of drummer Joey Jordison.

The band is rumored to have recruited drummer Jay Weinberg to play on the new album. Weinberg is the son of Max Weinberg, longtime BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND drummer.


COREY TAYLOR Says New SLIPKNOT Album Is Turning Out To Be 'Exactly What You Want It To Be'

Robert Herrera of FrontRowLiveEnt.com spoke to SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor on the red carpet of this past Monday's (May 12) 10th annual MusiCares MAP fund benefit concert, which honored BLACK SABBATH singer Ozzy Osbourne. Speaking about the progress of the songwriting sessions for SLIPKNOT's long-awaited follow-up to 2008's "All Hope Is Gone", Taylor said (see video below): "The album is coming along. I actually left the studio to come right down here. So it's a matter of time, trust me. It's gonna be rad… Everything is going exactly how it needs to go. So it's gonna be really awesome."  

Taylor also addressed the long gap between SLIPKNOT studio albums, telling FrontRowLiveEnt.com: "The good thing is we've always been writing, so there's a ton of stuff that we're pretty stoked on. It's exactly what you want it to be."

As previously reported, SLIPKNOT is rumored to have recruited former MADBALL and AGAINST ME! drummer Jay Weinberg to assist them during the sessions for the band's new studio album following last year's departure of Joey Jordison.

Weinberg — the 23-year-old son of Max Weinberg (BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND - was most recently a member of AGAINST ME!, having played with the Florida-based act from November 2010 until December 2012.

Weinberg joined AGAINST ME! shortly after he was ousted from MADBALL and following the departure of AGAINST ME!'s previous sticksman, George Rebelo.

In May 2013, Weinberg filled in for KVELERTAK drummer Kjetil Gjermundrod during the band's North American tour because Gjermundrod had to bow out of the run after experiencing significant pain in his arm.

SLIPKNOT announced in December 2013 that it had parted ways with Jordison, one of the band's founding members and key songwriters. The group posted a statement at its web site which read, "It is with great pain but quiet respect that, for personal reasons, Joey Jordison and SLIPKNOT are parting ways. We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds. We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future."

The statement added, "It is our love for all of you, as well as for the music we create, that spurs us to continue on and move forward with our plans for releasing new material in the next year. We hope that all of you will come to understand this, and we appreciate your continued support while we plan the next phase of the future of SLIPKNOT."

SLIPKNOT has not disclosed the reasons for Jordison's exit, although the drummer issued a statement in January saying that he did not quit the band.

SLIPKNOT's forthcoming CD will be the band's first since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray.

COREY TAYLOR On RONNIE JAMES DIO

Corey Taylor recently spoke to Jay Nanda of the San Antonio Metal Music Examiner about the SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman's involvement in "This Is Your Life", the tribute to album to legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio.

Asked why he chose to record a cover version of the DIO classic "Rainbow In The Dark", Taylor said: "That was just one of my favorites." He added: "It's hard to pick a favorite DIO track. Not only his solo stuff, but his stuff with [BLACK] SABBATH, RAINBOW. He's a legend for a reason. But 'Rainbow In The Dark' has always been one of my favorites. I can remember seeing the video when I was younger on MTV, coming home from school, and here was this new format for music. And out of the handful of videos, 'Rainbow In The Dark' was the first video that I saw from DIO, and I was like, 'Wow!' I just loved the track. That's always stuck with me over the years. I don't know if it's because it's a great blend of hard rock and heavy metal or just because it's a really well-written song. It's got a great hook on it. Ronnie's performance is sick. Vivian's [Campbell] solo is ridiculous. It's just a killer song top to bottom."

Regarding the recording process for his version of "Rainbow In The Dark", Taylor said: "Oh man, I've been singing along to this thing for years. Even after I hit puberty and I couldn't hit some of those notes anymore. [Laughs] It's just one of those things where you never know.

"I can remember miming in my basement, singing along to songs at my grandma's house. And that was one of those tunes, giving it all you've got.

"The only way that I know how to approach music is with everything. It's the whole reason that I do music.

"If I was going to go out and do it half-assed, I wouldn't be doing it. So being a fan of Ronnie, being a fan of that song, and knowing that there's a real legacy there as far as his performance, his music, there was no way I wasn't going to give it anything other than a thousand percent. Not only from the standpoint of it's an amazing song, but the respect of the music and the utmost respect that I have for Ronnie."

On the topic of how he got involved with the "This Is Your Life" tribute album in the first place, Taylor said: "It was kind of funny, man. I was working on some demos with my friend Jay Ruston, who is a producer and a mixer. He mixed [STONE SOUR's] 'House Of Gold And Bones' albums. He did 'Worship Music' with ANTHRAX. The guy's done a lot. We were at his house, and he was involved with the project. And he told me, 'Look, [Ronnie's wife and longtime manager] Wendy [Dio] has a short list of people that she would love to be involved, and you're on it.' I was like, 'Duh. Where? Sign me up.' It was really as easy as that. She reached out to me and my wife to see scheduling and availability, and I was like, 'You don't worry about that. I will take care of that. We will take care of that. Just give us the deadline, and we will have it in two weeks before that.'

"[Wendy] is just such a wonderful person. I've been able to meet her at several events before and after Ronnie's passing, and she is just a wonderfully sweet, awesome woman who is also very protective of her husband's legacy. Just the fact she would want me to be a part of this, I was really, really honored."

Asked what struck him the most about Ronnie James Dio as a vocalist and person, Taylor said: "It was an ease with which he approached it that belied what you were hearing and what you were seeing.

"I've heard stories from people who I've talked to since Ronnie passed that told me he really only had one warmup. He'd be smoking cigarettes right until he got on stage, and then he would just basically sing a note and be like, 'Alright, we're good to go.' It just makes you crazy as a vocalist: 'Really? Really?' I think that's one of the reasons his music is still so vibrant to this day. Everything up until the stuff that he released before he died, there was a power there. And there was a great blend of virtuosity and soul that you really don't get a lot of these days. You're either good at one or good at the other. But he had such a great blend of talent and vibe as far as what he was saying, how he was saying it, and how he did it live. That's a very rare, rare occurrence, and only the real legends have that."
