The iconic frontman of Stone Sour and Slipknot, Corey Taylor was the recent guest of Radio Freccia and revealed ‘probably’ heaviest song they’ve made in 15 years.
As praising ‘Solway Firth from “We Are Not Your Kind” album, Corey said that this song is his favorite.
Here is what Corey said:
“That’s one of the cool things about [Slipknot’s latest] album [‘We Are Not Your Kind’] – 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.”
