Corey Taylor stated last year that he felt that Slipknot had recorded their heaviest song during sessions for their upcoming album. Now there’s even more proof concerning the heaviness of their upcoming release, courtesy of drummer Jay Weinberg.
The band has been in the studio with producer Greg Fidelman and a new album is expected to arrive in the “middle of 2019. “
Just last fall, the band issued their first new single since the .5: The Gray Chapter album. The brutal “All Out Life” arrived on Halloween. Speaking about the upcoming disc, percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan told Billboard, “[The album] breaks down to … good vs. evil, or in this sense, evil vs. good. It’s about being a human being and experiencing what you have in correlating it to this world. The world is ugly and it’s supposed to be, and it has to be in order for art to lead to grandness and beauty.”
