Slipknot's Corey Taylor about ".5: The Gray Chapter": "It's probably one of our most honest albums"


Slipknot's Corey Taylor was recently interviewed by Mary McCool, you can read some excerpts below.

About what he hopes Slipknot fans will take away from listening to the band's latest album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", Taylor said: "The one thing that I hope that the fans take away from this is hearing the honesty in not only the lyrics, but the music and just the overall message. Because this really is the diary of a band who's kind of still amongst the grieving process. But it's us not holding anything back, 'cause people tend to romanticize grieving. But there's so many human emotions to go through, you're angry, you're selfish, you're pessimistic, depressed… I mean, it's just everything. And that's what this is, basically, it's a raw nerve exposed to the world. I think it's probably one of our most honest albums. And I hope that people can listen to this and realize that if they're in a situation like this, it's okay to feel these human emotions."
