Metal band Slipknot will begin working on their next album in March. Frontman Corey Taylor confirmed the band have 17 demos in the works. Speaking with UK magazine Kerrang! Taylor promises the new album will be a mix of their previous work:

"I can say that, to me, and this is only my opinion, it's a cross between Iowa and Volume 3, but that's honestly just scratching the surface," says Taylor. "I think the fans are going to be very, very excited when they hear this stuff."

Taylor continued to say: "I've written lyrics for everything that we have right now and it's feeling pretty good. It feels like the story of the band so far, which is a totally different take on what I've been used to writing with Slipknot, but I think because of everything we've been through, it's time to tell that story. It's going to be everything you want in a Slipknot album, and everything you wouldn't expect."

Last year, founding member and drummer of the band Joey Jordison departed the band. He later released a statement saying he did not, rather he was “blind sided” by the departure. For more on Slipknot, visit their website.
