Corey Taylor Says Slipknot’s New Album “Has ‘Iowa’ Moments” & “‘Vol. 3’ Moments”

Corey Taylor made headlines back in June 2018 after saying Slipknot’s new album, “We Are Not Your Kind” (out August 9), will be “‘Iowa‘ levels of heavy.” However, after the band released their new song “Unsainted“, people started complaining, because they felt it wasn’t heavy enough. Taylor has since addressed that via Twitter:

“Thanks to the millions of #maggots around the world. Spoiler: new album has Iowa moments. Also has Vol. 3 moments. But it overwhelmingly has WANYK moments. Everyone’s a critic, but I hope this clears up any misconceptions. Enjoy the next chapter- see you all soon! -CMFT”

Jim Root said the following about the record:

“This is most time we’ve had to write a record, and work stuff out together. One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full length albums – not just songs. While the industry is moving toward singles, Slipknot wanted to make an album experience, front to back.”

M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan added:

“These days the art we are making comes with the highest reward, because it’s taken the most time. Almost four years to create this emotion and temperature, and the reward now is nothing short of salvation.”
