- The music on Slipknot’s upcoming album pushes “the boundaries of creativity and experimentation.”
- That’s according to frontman Corey Taylor, who tells BBC Radio 1 when recording “We Are Not Your Kind,” he and his masked bandmates managed to explore new musical territory while not stepping too far outside of their comfort zone. “There are bands out there who go for all of that experimentation and they forget who they are — they forget that there’s an audience that wants to hear a certain type. It doesn’t have to be the exact thing, but there has to be a certain emotion that they are looking for.”
- Yet Taylor adds in spite of maintaining familiarity, “As a whole — and I can say this honestly — it is probably the furthest we’ve pushed the boundaries of creativity and experimentation, while also not losing our identity.”
- When artists say their new album is the “best” or “most progressive” one yet, how often do you find that to be true? Has Slipknot’s music evolved over the years?
