SLIPKNOT's New Album Will Be 'Evil' And 'Ridiculous'

posted on 26 Feb 2019

SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor spoke to the Des Moines Register about the band's upcoming sixth album, which is tentatively due this summer.

Describing the band's new music as "evil," Taylor said the follow-up to 2014's ".5: The Gray Chapter" is "going to be ridiculous. Let's put it that way."

The new disc is once again being recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT's 2004 album "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" and helmed ".5: The Gray Chapter".

According to TaylorSLIPKNOT's recently released standalone single "All Out Life", which arrived last October isn't "nearly as dark and vicious as the rest of the stuff that we have that we're working on."

Taylor said he wrote "All Out Life" in part because he didn't see others using music as a force to "take a hard look at what you believe."

He explained: "People are way too pissed about the wrong things and not pissed enough about the right things. " the tone for getting people to stand up and go, 'We're not gonna allow this. We're not gonna allow people to run us down for religious beliefs, for the color we are, for what we stand for. For who we chose to love.' All of these things. There's nobody doing it, man. Everybody's too worried about their pockets. Everybody's too worried about their paychecks.

"That was me, basically, drawing a line in the sand and going, 'Guess what? You don't get to do this anymore,'" he added.

Some of SLIPKNOT's new album will also deal with Taylor's depression that led to a divorce and forced him to "figure out who I was" without relapsing into substance abuse.

"All I was doing was giving and I found myself absolutely, completely tapped," he said. "You could see it in my skin. You could see it in my eyes. That's basically the journey I'm going to take people on this album … show them what happens to depression when you have no chemicals to fall back on.

"It's a pretty dark ride."
