Corey Taylor is a busy man. Apart from being the frontman of one of the United States most widely celebrated heavy metal bands of this generation. While he’s not donning his orange jumpsuit and mask, he’s also fronting rock band Stone Sour. And for those who are fans of the latter, there’s good news coming your way this year, straight from the vocalist’s mouth.
Stone Sour are set to release their 6th studio album, that’s yet untitled, sometime this year. And according to Corey Taylor, this one is “probably the coolest album I’ve made since the first Slipknot album.”
In an interview with BBC Rock Show with Daniel P Carter, he said of the live recording of the album, “We’re almost done with the album. We hit the ground, basically finishing a song a day. We started in the studio on January 7 and we have 16 songs done – we only have three left. It’s unbelievable. We’ve only really taken time off because we needed to.”
“We just destroyed it and it sounds incredible. Everyone is saying the same thing – not only are the songs good, but the energy is incredible because it has that live vibe. This is not beat-detected, auto-tuned or pitch-corrected. It’s so bad ass it’s not even funny.”
“We have six singles on this album. I’m really excited – this album is great because it’s got elements of everything. It’s got the heavy energy of the 80s, there’s punk moments, there’s hard rock moments – all the great amalgam of music.”
“There’s even jazz and hip-hop moments, it’s really, really cool. It’s probably the coolest album I’ve made since the first Slipknot album. I feel very confident making that statement because it’s so good.”
Stone Sour released their last album in 2013 called House of Gold & Bones – Part 2.
