Slipknot’s Corey Taylor is cutting deep into his own soul with his recent lyric writing
Maggots have been pacing around with anticipation for when Slipknot will finally record and release the follow up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter, which will be their sixth studio album.
That said, the band has been hard at work for months now getting the creation of this new record well underway.
Supposedly this is going to be quite the emotionally charged album (not that the previous ones were not) according to recent reports from the band.
Front man Corey Taylor recently sat down with Loudwire to talk about the “heavy couple of years” he has been having and how it has fueled his song writing. Taylor says:
“I’m working out some things, personally for myself, which has been great. I’ve been able to grab ahold of some of the depression that I’ve been fighting and formulate the way that I want to describe it.
So some of these lyrics are, to me, some of the best I’ve ever written. It’s probably the most I’ve shared in years.
I know Clown was, like, just blown away by how open and raw it all felt.
It felt like the old days. It felt like the beginning when it was just – we were the wound and the fans were the scabs. Trying to get it to heal and we were all trying to heal together.”
Currently the upcoming yet to be titled album is rumored to be coming out next year after a photo of Taylor and percussionist Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan appeared on the band’s Twitter page with the caption “2019”.
Also, bassist Alessandro ‘V-Man’ Venturella posted an ever so slightly altered version of the band’s logo on his Instagram.
Keep up with music at Salute.
