Speaking last week with US metal media personality Eddie Trunk on his SiriusXM Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk show, Taylor declared himself “really stoked” with the album.
Taylor also told Trunk that Slipknot’s new album is currently being mixed, and that a new single will preface the album release, “hopefully three months from now.”
"It's really killer, man," he insisted. "It's darker than We Are Not Your Kind, but there's a ton of melody. I've been telling everybody that it's like a heavier version of Vol. 3. It's got so many textures and layers. The heavy stuff has attack but the melodic stuff you can just sink your teeth in; there's a lot of great melodies and hooks. I'm really, really excited for people to hear it."
