Corey Taylor on Slipknot Comeback: 'It's Time'
Three years after the death of bassist Paul Gray, singer Corey Taylor says it feels like the right time for Slipknot to make a comeback. The band has performed live since Gray died of a drug overdose in 2010, but have not written new material. Their last studio album was "All Hope is Gone" in 2008. "I know everybody is pretty keen on getting together and seeing what happens next year, so I mean, if it takes us a year to write an album, so be it," he told the Pulse of Radio (via Blabbermouth). He continued: "The main goal is to just get us in the room and just see what happens, you know. If we can get past that first day, I think it'll come together. Now that we're all kind of in better places in our lives and whatnot, it's making it a little easier to be excited about it again. It's just starting to feel like it's time." Last week, Slipknot's Clown said they could be set to write the best record of their careers. "When it's right, there will be a new record, and that record is going to be, I predict, one of the most serious things that we will have ever comprehended that we've ever done in our life," he said. "And we pretty much say that on every record, but I really feel that when the time comes, what will be on hand is going to be something almost unimaginable." How do you feel about the Slipknot comeback? Let us know if you think they can continue to push the boundaries of modern metal in the comments.
