The iconic leaders of Stone Sour and Slipknot, Corey Taylor had a new interview with Italian RadioFreccia and revealed a truth never before told about Slipknot’s latest album, We Are Not Your Kind.
As you read Corey Taylor‘s statements, the Slipknot leader revealed that his favorite song on the album is “Solway Firth.”
You can read their statements below, transcribed by BlabberMouth:
“That’s one of the cool things about the album, it has all of that. I’ve always said that bands who experiment too far and then don’t bring it back to that emotion that fans need — not expect, but need — from a certain band, we have never forgotten that.
So as far out as we want to experiment and create and really make this beautifully dense dark art, there’s also crushingly heavy stuff on this album. Honestly, one of my favorites is called ‘Solway Firth’, and it’s probably one of the heaviest songs we’ve written in 15 years.
And it is such a sledgehammer that’s so emotional that it’s really gonna take people’s breath away. And it’s the culmination of everything that is being told on this album. So, yes, there are beautifully artistic passages on this album. However, there’s still the sledgehammer of Slipknot.”
