Slipknot Entering Studio in Summer to Record 'Very Heavy' Album, Corey Taylor Confirms
Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor discussed the band's upcoming effort, revealing that we'll be looking at a "very heavy" album. According to Corey, the group is looking to hit the studio in summer and kick off the recording of what he described as "'Vol. 3' meets 'Iowa.'" "It's really dark, there's some really good esoteric stuff to it, a lot of good melody without taking away from the heaviness," he told the Blairing Out Show. "It's gonna be pretty rad." "We're just getting demos right now and hoping to get to the studio in the summer [of] next year," the singer added. "So very soon we're gonna start having some stuff to get out to the people." Since the interview was conducted during Geezer Butler tribute event, Taylor also talked about the importance of bassists in rock bands. "I think the misconception is that the bass player just fills the blanks between guitars and the drums and everything, where to me, bass playing has always been a vital part of it. It lays so much of the foundation down for everything that sits on top of it, but at the same time lays so much of the body, the feel of it," he said. Later last month, Corey gave an update regarding the new record, saying, "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 band's latest studio effort, "All Hope Is Gone," dropped in August 2008 via Roadrunner Records.
