Corey Taylor is just about done recording vocals for a new Slipknot album. Given the usual flow of the recording process, this probably means the new Slipknot album is nearing completion. Taylor said in an interview with GalaxyCon that he has three songs left to do, which of course got delayed because of his recent bout with COVID.
"I was actually supposed to finish my vocals this week. I got screwed, man, [by the COVID diagnosis]. I actually only have really three songs left to do. I've done all the other tracks because I’ve been doing ’em in between tours, just fucking hitting it.”
"I actually like this one better than the last one. I loved the last one. It's really good. There's some darker, heavier shit on it. There's some tunes that are actually really outside the realm of what we've done before. But it all fucking coheses together — it all works together. And there's some fucking savage heavy shit, which I'm really stoked on. So it's gonna be rad."
