Cory Taylor: “Slipknot’s 5th album will be very melancholy”

In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Slipknot frontman Cory Taylor claims the band’s fifth album will be entirely inspired by bassist Paul Gray.

He told the US magazine “We know that everything we do on that album is going to be about Paul. It’s going to be very melancholy. It’s going to be a more saddened form of rage when it does happen, and it’ll be a whole path that we’ve never gone down before.

It is not known when the band’s fifth record will materialise – and it may not be any time soon – but the band have said they’re all writing material.
