Slipknot are in the middle of their tour with Marilyn Manson, but frontman Corey Taylor is also hard at work on Stone Sour’s first new album of original material since 2013’s House of Gold & Bones – Part 2.
Taylor recently sat down with WRIF’s Meltdown and had this to say about the progress of Stone Sour’s new material:
“We have 18 songs demoed and written that…it’s the best material we’ve ever written. This album, this next Stone Sour one, is going to eat people…I’m an old-school guy; I think most of us are. The thing that I love about those great albums is that you would get it and you would study everything. So, I’m going to try and meld that world with the electronic world and see if those two can coalesce and coexist. We’re getting art together already. We’re starting to really get stuff together, like really see the vision of it, and just put together just a kick-ass rock and roll album. A little heavy. A little rock. A little punk. Some soft stuff in there. It’s going to destroy people.”
Call it a hunch, but it might be one of the few times many of us are looking forward to getting destroyed.
