Stone Sour To Begin Work On New Album In January
0
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has told AOL's Noisecreep that his other band, Stone Sour, will probably go into the studio in January "for two or three months" to record its third album for a late spring/early summer release via Roadrunner Records. "We've already got ten tunes fully written and another 15 we're kind of working on here and there," he said. "When I'm not on the road I'm still working, I never stop. And it's really good, everything we're doing is really, really good." Regarding the musical direction of the new material, Taylor said, "I can say the material is darker than [2006's] 'Come What(ever) May', but a lot more melodic, a lot stronger, a lot more mature, and the lyrics that are coming out of me are really good. I'm really excited." Stone Sour released a deluxe edition of its second album, "Come What(ever) May", in June 2007. The new package featured all the videos from the album, six previously unreleased tracks, including a cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game", and a bonus DVD featuring an entire concert filmed in Moscow in late 2006. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    I think Cory Taylor likes Stone Sour more because those fans allow him to be more artistic and musical.

    You guys obviously forget that it ain't just corey that writes the songs. Its a group effort, so you couldnt really take something that mick thompson had put his hand to and use it in stone sour the same way they couldnt take something josh rand had helped written and use it in slipknot.

    Hahaha, even though I like Slipknot, I found that hilarious.

    All Hope Is Gone wasn't THAT light, Gematria was decent, as well as the title track, and a few others scattered through. Its like Slipknot release one acoustic track on their album and it makes them a pop band, whereas Stone Sour can get away with having 7 or 8 acoustic intro's to their songs. It makes no sense, Slipknot are heavier and always will be. Stone Sour's music is nothing like Slipknot's, in my opinion. Im excited about the new album, Corey Taylor is a gem in today's music world.

    It doesn't matter how Corey write songs, he does a good job in Slipknot AND Stone Sour.

    Come what(ever) may is one of my favorate albums of all time, I doubt the new one will be as good but I'm still looking forward to it. Wasn't that impressed with all hope is gone so I'm hoping stone sour go in a differant direction.

    im starting to like stonesour more than slipknot, slipknot fails to excite me as much as stonesour, previous to albums were great especially come what(ever) may. Can't wait for new album.

    idk, Chris said that a follow-up album would be released in 2010. It's possible because while Corey and Jim are recording with Stone Sour, the rest of the band could start writing stuff or already has written stuff and let them add their parts when they come back, but who knows, it comes out when it comes out.

    All Hope Is Gone wasn't my favorite Slipknot album, I think Iowa was their best, just because of how dark and different from anything else it is. Stone Sour's self-titled has some awesome songs, but overall isn't quite as good as Come What(ever) May

    About god damn time. Stone Sour is where his vocal prowess really shines through, instead of the semi-crappy vocals he does in Slipknot.

    I like Them both 50/50 right now. Its hard to decide which i like more. So far stone sour has had a better start i'd say. im hoping for more stuff like cold reader. Not that i didn't like come whatever may but the first album was so much more raw

    where the hell have you been? theyve only played 3 songs total from all hope is gone and like 3 from vol 3 then all of it was either self titled or iowa. i saw them in february and shit it was awesome. more than half of self titled sprinkled with all the other albums and they did TWO songs off AHIG so i wouldnt complain about the current set

    stone sour is amazing. i cant wait to hear what kind of deep dpressing stuff corey has come up with for this album Johnny Tidwell

    Take your time. We're still trying to forget about Slipknot. I'm still waiting for him to make yet another band named after his favorite sandwich at the local cafe he frequents.

    Stone sour are effin awesome, and one of the better modern hard rock bands. I own Come whatever may Ltd edit, and it's one of my most played albums. They got the grooves, the melodies and cool lyrics/vocals. What more would you want?

    That sounds like the same description he used for All Hope Is Gone. I was alittle disappointed with that album. But nonetheless, still a Slipknot album with some great tunes on it. I am looking forward to the next album, the only thing I didn't like about Come What(ever)May was the screaming style Corey was using. :\ But I like the shouting he's doing now. I'm intrigued.

    As long as it sounds like their first one, im fine. Come Whatever May had very little replay value with an exception of a few songs.

    So, now that Stone Sour's going to release a new album next year, it looks like a new Slipknot album won't be released sooner than 2012.

    Stone sour is pretty decent. Much liked 'Hell and Consequences'. Hope its a mix of the other 2 albums, because they were both heavier than fuggin Vol 3..

    Sweet But can UG get a new picture of Corey? It's been the same early 2000's beanie hat Corey for years now lol

    Don't get me wrong, i love slipknot and Corey Taylor is one hell of a front man. But to me stone sour is almost like a little black mark on Corey's list. The band just isn't as strong as Slipknot and like an above poster stated, sooner or later the music from both is going to start sounding alike. I'd personally like to see him put his effort into slipknot and work on another record. But that's me being selfish i guess.

    I'm kinda getting tired of heard "Stone Sour is the band that does slow music that isn't heavy" Have you listened to the self titled and the demos? Quite a bit of that stuff is just as heavy as early Slipknot. And some of it is older than Slipknot too.

    I really liked come whatever may. I hope this one will be good. I would prefer him to release a new cd with stone sour anyway.

    slipknot got a bit lighter on all hope is gone, and now stone sour is getting a bit darker.. hmm

    Checked. It's been alright for now, but anything involving someone from Slipknot usually descends into a shitstorm. So I'm telling you guys now to play nice and be constructive with your criticisms of the band.
