Corey Taylor Talks About Creation of the Band's Forthcoming 'Metal' Album
Slipknot's Corey Taylor has said that the decision for Joey Jordison to leave the band was a "heavy" one while stating the the group were "knocked senseless" by the death of bassist Paul Gray.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on the same day the band revealed the video for new single "The Negative One," Taylor discussed the creation of their new album and how the death of Paul Gray in 2010 as well as the departure of Joey Jordison in 2013 affected the recording of the album.

"It's been a weird time for this band. There's a lot about Paul. There's a lot about ourselves," the frontman told Lowe on BBC Radio 1 (via New Musical Express). "It's us basically reconvening. We can either die under the weight of life, or… come back and be the Slipknot we know we can be.

"We were just knocked senseless by the loss of Paul, and then coming to terms with the fact that we had to make a really heavy decision about parting ways with Joe."

However, Taylor is happy that the new record retains a sense of hope. "Even if it gets chaotic and dark, people still understand we are a band with a mission ... that has a very strong message of positivity in the end."

Slipknot last released an album in 2008. "All Hope Is Gone" was their fourth record, following 1999's self-titled debut, 2001's "Iowa" and "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" in 2004.
