It’s time to start getting excited Slipknot fans! They heavy metal powerhouse from Iowa is getting closer and closer to finishing their highly anticipated album! How close are they? Corey Taylor recently told Full Metal Jackie that they are “98 percent done.” He also added, “I’m in the process of heading to the studio to give a listen, see if there’s anything we need to touch up. But yeah, it is very close. The next step is the mix, and we’re going to try to get it out very soon. There will be big announcements soon. Big things to hear, soon. That’s really all I can say about it. I know we’re anything, if not diligent to our plan. The plan is to just slowly but surely get people to lose their minds for the next couple of months with just little stuff here and there leaked.”
What can we expect? The Slipknot front man previously gave U.K.’s Kerrang this exciting update: “I can say that, to me — and this is only my opinion — it’s a cross between ‘Iowa’ and ‘Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)’, but that’s honestly just scratching the surface. I think 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. Not just from our point of view, but from everything around us. So, yeah… it’s going to be interesting. It’s going to be everything you want in a SLIPKNOT album, and everything you wouldn’t expect.”
So who’s ready?
