Corey Taylor talks progress on new Slipknot album

The waters may be a little rough lately for Corey Taylor, having had two founding members in both Slipknot and Stone Sour (Joey Jordison, Jim Root respectively) split from their groups in recent months. Ever the headstrong optimist when it comes to music, he recently talked to Kristyn Clark of Pop Culture Madness on the carpet of the Roast On The Range event (at which he was the guest of honor) about how the album is shaping up and what fans can expect from it:

"I will say that, at the moment, right now, it feels like a great mesh of Iowa and Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses. You've got the gorgeous melodies and the artistic direction of Vol. 3 and then you've got the absolute brutality of Iowa. And I think people are gonna lose their minds when they hear's a matter of time, trust me."

The album, which is tentatively set for release by the end of this year, will be the first studio effort since 2008's All Hope Is Gone and the first record created without founding members Paul Gray, who passed away from a drug overdose in 2010, and now Joey Jordison who more recently announced his departure. Replacement rumors include Jay Weinberg who is the son of Max Weinberg, drummer for The Boss, Mr. Bruce Springsteen.
