Slipknot's Future Sound Depends on New Drummer, Corey Taylor Explains
Slipknot singer Corey Taylor discussed the band's plans following the split with drummer Joey Jordison, mostly focusing on the future new drummer.

Asked by Rock Revolt on how Joey's departure will change the Knot sound, the singer replied: "Honestly, it depends on who we get. We're looking at a few people right now - it all comes down to someone who can play the old stuff, but also brings a certain creativity to it."

Despite confirming "a few people" are being considered for the drummer spot, Taylor couldn't reveal any names, adding, "As soon as we know, the fans will know, we're keeping everything really close to the chest right now."

Slightly touching on the Jordison rift, Corey noted that the only alternative was "shutting the band down and none of us wanted to do that, so we're gonna push on." Further asked about the writing style changes, the vocalist added: "Obviously it will [change] a little bit, but we all write.

"I know there's this myth out there that Joey wrote everything, but that's not at all truth. We all write, we all bring something to the table, between me and Jim [Root] and Mick [Thomson] and [Shawn Crahan] Clown and everybody. I think we're gonna be able to put something really, really cool together."

Taylor then concluded, "The dynamic will change a little bit, but as far as our approach to music and our intensity and how much we love doing what we do - that will remain unchanged. We're gonna go for it with 110 percent."
