Corey Taylor On Slipknot’s New Album: “It’s Some Of The Darkest Writing I’ve Done In Years”

During an interview for the new issue of Kerrang!, Corey Taylor discussed Slipknot’s new album “We Are Not Your Kind” (out August 9). According to the singer, the effort will feature “some of the darkest writing [he’s] done in years.”

Taylor said the following about the record:

“It’s very dark. It’s some of the darkest writing I’ve done in years. In the Slipknot index, this album would sit somewhere between ‘Iowa‘ and ‘Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)‘. Lyrically, it has the force of ‘Iowa‘, but musically it has the heaviness but the experimentation as well. It was very important for us to go somewhere crazy and make something insane.”

He also added:

“I was able to let that pain go. It means that I can kind of enjoy everything for what it is now. It’s night and day from where I was two and a half years ago, so now I can listen to the music and go, ‘Jesus Christ!’ But, at the same time, it helps to know where I was. It’s one thing to record something heavy; it’s another to forget what inspired it. And, for me, that will never go away. My memory is long. I can tap into that, but that’s it.”
