Corey Taylor: 'New Slipknot Album Will Be a Cross Between 'Iowa' and 'Vol. 3''
Frontman Corey Taylor recently gave a brief update on the new Slipknot album, revealing for the first time what the new material will sound like. Taylor called the "Vol. 3: the Subliminal Verses" record "a bit of a peek at what I think the next album will be," adding that he is working on dark, gloomy material at the moment. "It'll be a cross between 'Iowa' and 'Vol. 3' in a lot of ways, while also evolving the way we always have," he told Artist Direct. "The stuff I'm writing right now is really dark. The stuff Clown is coming with is f--king beyond. It's really cool. It's going to be cool to get the alchemists in the same room and see what happens." The fans will be pleased to know that when asked to name what's next on his schedule, Corey instantly singled out Slipknot. "Honestly, Slipknot is looming on the horizon," he said. "That's what's next in my mind anyway. I'm writing some demos. Clown is putting some things together. Joey is doing Scar the Martyr, but he's a f--king machine. He can write at any time." The singer continued, "This band is just loaded with writers. We don't have a definitive start date, which is fine. That's okay for us now. When we're ready to make the album, we will. That's the mindset. Next year we're going to get together and start putting the pieces together." According to one of Shawn "Clown" Crahan's recent statements, the band is looking to hit the studio in January. After initially being somewhat uncertain over 2014 Slipknot comeback plans due to his obligations with Scar the Martyr, drummer Joey Jordison noted that he's written heaps of new material for Slipknot. So things finally seem to be cooking up here. Let us know what you think about the "Iowa"/"Vol. 3" mixture in the comments.
