Slipknot Member Reportedly Spotted In Studio With Ross Robinson


Rumors have begun swirling that Slipknot may be returning to their roots for their upcoming new album by once again enlisting the services of producer Ross Robinson, who helmed the band’s 2x multi-platinum self-titled album and its 2001 platinum selling follow-up, “Iowa“.

The news originated after Slipknot bassist Alessandro Venturella shared an Instagram story this week which found him in an apparent studio setting with Robinson‘s beloved dog, Carl (you can find some evidence of that here via Reddit.) Notably Ventura also revealed last week that he was headed out to Los Angeles, where Robinson is based. However, it should be pointed out that Robinson frequently works in a home-based studio environment, so take from that what you will.

With Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor previously having stated that the band’s forthcoming new album would be “‘Iowa‘ levels of heavy,” some have seen that as a potential hint as the band going back to Robinson. As of yet, nothing official has surfaced on the matter however.

Robinson himself meanwhile expressed interest in resurrecting his I AM Recordings label this past summer, whom Slipknot were in part signed with early on in their career.
