Slipknot’s Corey Taylor On His Upcoming Solo Album: “Nobody Is Ready For What They’re About To Hear”

Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) has officially started the recording process for his second solo album. According to him, “nobody is ready for what they’re about to hear.”

Taylor said the following:

“I’m really, really excited. I mean, everything’s just bigger this time. Everything sounds better. Everything’s running better. Everything’s running hot. Instead of where I came from, this is where I’m going. Musically, it’s harder. It’s faster, but there’s still tons of stuff from the first album. So, there’s elements of Slipknot. There’s elements of Stone Sour. There’s elements of ‘CMFT.’ There’s elements of the stuff that I’ve been doing for years. Just, like, cover-wise or whatever.

All the stuff that I’ve always wanted to do. We are just… we’re doing that. Just cranking it up and it all sounds so fucking good, that I can’t even describe to you how stoked I am to be starting on this. And today’s the day. Today’s the day. Today’s the fucking one. Let’s get going! I’m serious as a heart attack. Nobody is ready for what they’re about to hear, for real. But first, we gotta record it.”

Margot Robbie Defends Heavy Metal On “The Graham Norton Show”

During a recent appearance on “The Graham Norton Show,” Margot Robbie (“Suicide Squad,” etc.) defended her love of heavy music. The actress says she listened to a lot of metal as a kid and that she “still genuinely like[s] it.”

Robbie said the following after Norton asked if she had a goth phase as a teen:

“I don’t know if I was a full goth. Very emo though, and I listened to, like, only heavy metal music. I would dye my hair black and only cut it with a razor blade….so yeah, kinda goth.”

She also defended her music tastes after fellow actress Cate Blanchett (“Thor: Ragnarok,” etc.) asked if anyone actually likes heavy metal:

“I genuinely — and I still genuinely like it. I really like it. I remember going to the Slipknot concert, and… at the time I was on ‘Neighbours‘. I’ve never had more people come up to me, ever, than at a Slipknot concert… It was so unexpected. And they worried about all the characters… They were so invested in ‘Neighbours‘ and Slipknot.”

This news comes after Robbie previously expressed her love for artists such as Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine, etc.

“It was incredible to be part of a lineup of such insanely heavy hitters. WOW. And to have had the opportunity to play with Joey and Paul that night, with Corey singing — definitely a Make-A-Wish moment for me”

Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan Says “Look Outside Your Window” Might Be Released This Year

During a recent interview with Upset Magazine, Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan talked a bit about the side album that him, Corey Taylor, Jim Root, and Sid Wilson recorded during the “All Hope Is Gone“ sessions. According to him, the effort, which is titled “Look Outside Your Window,” may finally see a release in 2023.

Clown said the following about the record:

“It’s an amazing body of work. You will never hear another Corey Taylor like this. The music and the words… it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life.”

He also added that he wants the album to have its own time in the spotlight:

“We wouldn’t want Slipknot to hurt ‘Look Outside Your Window’, and we wouldn’t want ‘Look Outside Your Window’ to be a little irritation to Slipknot. Why? Because it’s beautiful God art and people deserve it. The good news is that six months from now, April Fool’s Day 2023, we’re off the label. There are no plans to immediately release something, and we haven’t talked about it, but I would imagine it’ll probably come very soon afterwards. There’s nothing else to do, and it’s ready to go. It’ll be worth the wait.”
