Clown is a man who likes to tease Slipknot fans. And in a recent interview with Metal Hammer, he offered quite a tasty tease.

The Slipknot percussionist has revealed that during the recording sessions for All Hope Is Gone, that he, frontman Corey Taylor, guitarist Jim Root and DJ Sid Wilson wrote and recorded an entire album's worth of material that was decidedly not Slipknot:

"There’s a collection of songs that were recorded, 11 I think, I’ve held on to them for 10 years because it hasn’t been right, and I’m going to let you know now that it’s feeling right.

"Is it Slipknot? No, it’s not Slipknot. Is it four members of Slipknot? Yes. It’s four members of Slipknot. Is it music being written at the same time as All Hope Is Gone? Absolutely.

"Jim would write guitar then go down and play guitar on the album, then come up and finish playing guitar on the song. That’s how we’d kill time during those four months."

"There’s a big collection of music, it’s fucking really amazing. It’s so amazing it had to be held back to wait for the right time, it’s been 10 years. It wasn’t going to be one of those things to loosely go out and confuse everyone, and piss everyone off.

Obviously, fans want to hear this stuff. Clown says they're working on it:

"There’s a big collection of music, it’s fucking really amazing. It’s so amazing it had to be held back to wait for the right time, it’s been 10 years. It wasn’t going to be one of those things to loosely go out and confuse everyone, and piss everyone off.

"I’m not going to put music out to spite people – we do things the right way in this camp. The right way is that sooner or later, people need to be made aware of it because it’s the truth. It happened. We spent time doing it, we worked it every day, we mixed it, we mastered it, there’s artwork. It’s amazing stuff. But it’s all got to be right in the story of Slipknot.”

Slipknot are currently working on a new album of decidedly Slipknot tunes, with a release expected in the summer of 2019. They have already released their first single, and it's heavy.
