There’s some activity afoot in the Slipknot camp as the band have changed their site, Slipknot1.com, to a mere black background. They have also posted pictures of said void on their social media sites. Writing sessions for the bands new album have been underway in recent months.
To that end frontman Corey Taylor has told Kerrang! that “major” work will begin on the album in March. Seventeen demos have been completed thus far with Taylor offering:
“I can say that, to me – and this is only my opinion – it’s a cross between ‘Iowa‘ and ‘Volume 3…’, but that’s honestly just scratching the surface. I think the fans are going to be very, very excited when they hear this stuff.”
“I’ve written lyrics for everything that we have right now and it’s feeling pretty good. It feels like the story of the band so far, which is a totally different take on what I’ve been used to writing with Slipknot, but I think because of everything we’ve been through, it’s time to tell that story. It’s going to be everything you want in a Slipknot album, and everything you wouldn’t expect.”
No word yet on a potential replacement for drummer Joey Joridson who the band parted ways with late last year.
