As Slipknot are in a midst of recuperating and setting their plans for next year's studio entrance, singer Corey Taylor stressed that he is looking to make music that will last, rather than just disappear in a couple of years.
During a recent Fuse interview, Taylor compared the current state of music to fast food industry, saying that "it's basically McDonald's trying to make music.""It's like, 'Everybody needs another hamburger and fries. Here's a piece of crap that nobody is going to care about in two years,'" the singer said. "I hate that and I don't ever want to be that guy."
Taylor explained further, "I want to be able to let the inspiration come to me, because that's when you get the best stuff. And there's so much expectation on this anyway that the last thing I want to do is put the guys through that kind of bombardment. It's gonna be hard enough to enter the studio without Paul anyway."
The singer concluded on somewhat of a positive note, saying, "If we could all kind of go in and do it together, try to have fun with it, make it dark, make it crazy, make it beautiful, i think we'll have something very special."
The latest Slipknot release, "All Hope is Gone," saw its release back in August 2008 via Roadrunner Records as the band's fourth studio record. After selling around 240,000 copies in the US within the first week, it landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
