Slipknot Frontman Says Next Album Will be ‘Very Melancholy’ and About Paul Gray

by | Nov 3, 2011

Slipknot recently spoke to Billboard.com about the possibility of a new album. While no plans for an album have been officially confirmed, frontman Corey Taylor says he expects the next Slipknot record to be “very melancholy.”

“We know that everything we do on that album is going to be about Paul [Gray],” he stated. “It’s going to be very melancholy. It’s going to be a more saddened form of rage when it does happen, and it’ll be a whole path that we’ve never gone down before.”

Taylor went on to say that he is “not as anxious to make a new album as maybe certain people in the band are, and I know a lot of the guys in the band feel the same way I do, whether they want to admit it or not. It just makes more sense to try and figure things out before we try to get into a studio… I don’t want to risk losing what we’ve built because somebody’s trying to prove a point.”
