Stone Sour Working On Double Album, Concept Outlined

According to the latest issue (May-June 2012) of “Revolver” magazine, Stone Sour‘s forthcoming new release will be a double album. Frontman Corey Taylor described the effort to the publication, offering:

“Picture [Pink Floyd's] The Wall crossed with Alice In ChainsDirt with some good heavy blasts in there. The heaviest song is a total ass-kicker that sounds as if Slayer and Anthrax had a baby. Then, there’s a darker bluesy dirge that has the vibe of Led Zeppelin‘s ‘In My Time Of Dying‘. There’s even a little industrial vibe. It’s definitely going to blow people’s fucking minds.

Taylor further elaborated that the set will adhere to a concept, on which he stated:

“The album is a morality play about a man who’s standing at the crossroads of his life trying to figure out what to do next. He’s going, ‘Do I move foward and evolve? Do I become more responsible or do I run backwards and pilfer the basket of youth?’ Sometimes it’s romantic to live in the mistakes that you made when you were 20, and condemn yourself to perpetual adolescence.”

According to Taylor, it has yet to be decided whether the albums will be released together or individually. As previously reported, the band have been tracking the set at Iowa’s Sound Farm Studio with producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse). A tentative October release date is being planned via Roadrunner.

    stone sour definitely blows a lot of things, but minds isn’t one of them.

  • skizem

    I’ve not seen so much name dropping since the last time Fred Durst opened his piehole.

    • RUREADY2JIGGLE?

      Right? It reminds me of back in 2001, when Durst was claiming the next album would be Beastie Boys meets Pantera.

      It’s funny how much Taylor resembles his arch-nemesis nowadays.

  • Aggroculture

    Taylor then added “Ah, I was just fucking with you. It will sound like a slightly grittier Nickelback. As always.”

  • star_AD

    DUDE I’M SOOO STOKED!!!
    nah just kidding. Stick to the knot and your stand up routines Talyor

  • BlueBalls

    The Wall crossed with Dirt? Holy fucking shit. Self-awareness Taylor. Fucking get some.

    • robishow

      I know, right? I have to admit my interest is piqued by all these comparisons, however insane and improbable they are. One thing’s for sure though – there is no way in Hades this album is going to even come close to meeting the stratospheric expectations Taylor just created.

      If it does, I’ll eat your flat cap hat, sticker and all.

    fuck it, i’ll give it a shot. the last album sucked, but their debut was a damn fine hard rock record. they have potential, and i think a producer like bottrill could bring it out of them.

  • ethos

    The only thing I believe will show up is industrial. I’m gonna predict the rest (blues, Pink Floyd, Slayer etc.) will all be bullshit.

    “Picture [Rot Orbison's] Pretty Woman crossed with The Go Go‘s We Got the Beat with some good heavy blasts in there. The heaviest song is a total ass-kicker that sounds as if Marvin Gaye and Bjork had a baby. Then, there’s a darker bluesy dirge that has the vibe of George Straight’s Born Country. There’s even a little industrial vibe. It’s definitely going to blow people’s fucking penises.

      That I’d listen to

    • Lifeseclipse

      Now that I read this without alcohol in my blood, I should have written a few things differently…

      “industrial vibe” = disco vibe
      “blow people’s fucking penises” = blow people’s fucking bubbles

      I just noticed I typed “Rot Orbison”

      Never drinking brandy again, it ruins my PRP.

      • robishow

        Rot Orbison sounds like a deathgrind Roy Orbison cover band. I dig it.

        ONLY THE LONELYYYYYYY!!!

  • Darkdevout

    How about a new Slipknot album?

    • kturl69

      That’s what I’m sayin. I’ve been waiting since 08 and it doesn’t seem like it’s happening anytime soon. Obviously with Paul’s death(RIP) and everyone else’s side projects going on it’s understandable but still. I actually really liked All Hope is Gone. I’m curious if they even have what it takes to produce another Iowa type album. Doesn’t seem like they wanna put in the effort because of all the success. Slipknot is still one of my all time fav bands but they can’t go out like that. They need a 5th and final album because I guarantee there wont be a 6th. Stop fucking around Corey, you piece of shit. Listen to Joey and get some shit going.

      • kturl69

        1. Iowa
        2. Slipknot
        3. All Hope is Gone
        4. Vol: 3

      • Darkdevout

        They are planning a new album, the rest of the band members took studio time early 2013, their just waiting for Corey, so their saying they’re doing another album and Corey didn’t refute anything so yeah, 2013 new Slipknot apparently.

      • Lifeseclipse

        They are always waiting on Corey. He’s such a fuckin Diva.

  • JohnnyB4439

    I don’t think anyone here likes any bands.

    • Darkdevout

      That’s because the people of this website detest “cock rock” the same way your going to get but fucked for having ffdp as your profile pic… we all hate mainstream hard rock with retarded “your betrayal” type lyrics…such as “the bleeding” by ffdp…

    • ethos

      basically what we’re saying is that when it comes down to it, there are wayyyy too many bands that are ok with simply sounding like radio rock is supposed to sound like nowadays. Personally I think that Stone Sour is above some of that, but still they say that they have all these influences yet none show up in their music.

    • BlueBalls

      Countless bands receive praise around these parts. You’re either not paying attention or can’t get over the fact that most here find Five Finger Donkey Punch laughable.

  • JohnnyB4439

    I could give two shits about what you people think is good music vs laughable main street rock. I love it all, including what you guys like. I am not a closed minded person. I don’t sit here and shit on every single article that comes through the prp. I bet you were the people that got their ass beat every single day so instead of standing up for yourself you interject comical belligerence to instill a false sense of pride and power in your pathetic worlds. I don’t normally get involved with the debates but you people make me laugh way to hard on your close mindedness.

    • ethos

      Ahh yes, I see. Who’s on the high horse now?

    • RUREADY2JIGGLE?

      Your butt-hurt is showing.

      • JohnnyB4439

        Hold on, let me tuck it back in.

    • BlueBalls

      You don’t practice discretion when choosing what music you listen to. Congrats.

      Most here are picky about what bands we choose to support. Bands that are talented and progressive are lauded and bands that create generic, made for radio music while capitalizing off recent trends are loathed.

      Here you are, on a site catered to the “heavy music snob,” criticizing us for not automatically supporting every piece of shit post-grunge band the record industry shits in our general direction. Apparently you’re more closed-mended than you realize.

      • BlueBalls

        *minded

      • JohnnyB4439

        You people virtually support nothing. I would safely say 90% percent of the reviews I look at are people bashing and slandering the band. It’s so pathetic. If a band gets airplay they are considered a “sell out” or “conformist”. That within its self is close minded. If a band ventures and persues a different aspect or style of music they are automatically shunned and condemned by the so called fans. Perfect example right here with Stone Sour, Corey Taylor’s side project. It’s a damn side project for god sake. A time to try new things, the purpose of the whole concept. I personally like Slipknot and as well as Stone Sour. There are many bands that are mainstream that I like, however they are many bands that do not get airplay that I love as well. I also support alot of local bands too. Rock, Metal, Alternative, Country, Ambient, etc.. I love it all. I won’t sit here and trash it, I’ll just appreciate it. If that makes me “butt hurt” so be it.

      • robishow

        Bullshit.

  • xenophonic

    I just saw a metal show at an Applebee’s this past weekend. It was the most metal show I’ve ever been to. Anything Corey Taylor has been a part of couldn’t even compare. CHICKEN TENDERRRSSSSS!!!
