He continues: I mean, the music is brilliant. It expands on what we did with We Are Not Your Kind – it kind of blossoms from there – but the great thing is, it’s got not only that, but it’s got everything that you would want from a Slipknot project; there’s the heavy stuff, there’s the dark stuff, there’s the melodic stuff, there’s the weird stuff. We have so many different flavours that we can play with that, now, at this point, it’s just us kind of mixing and matching and seeing what excites us.

That’s all I can say for right now,” the frontman adds. But I can tell you that it’s really, really good, man. We’re entering a realm that we’ve never been, and that, to us, is exciting – especially after all of these years. We pride ourselves on always being able to try and top ourselves, and if we can pull this off, this may be the ultimate top ourselves’.”

CANNOT. WAIT.
