SLIPKNOT Guitarist Mick Thomson - "We're Amazingly Lucky To have A Singer Like Corey Taylor"
Music Radar recently caught up with Slipknot guitarists Mick Thomson and Jim Root to discuss the making of the band's new album, .5: The Gray Chapter. An excerpt is available below:
Music Radar: .5: The Gray Chapter flits from metallic brutality to pervasive melancholy. How vital is it that every new Slipknot release now embraces multiple facets?
Mick: “There are many personalities in the band, and we like different things. We’ve musically evolved to do more than simple bludgeoning.
"When some bands break away from that, people are like ‘what the fuck?’ But we’ve put ourselves in a position where we can change gears, and I’m glad because shit gets boring playing the same thing over and over.”
Jim: “We have many different approaches to writing. I don’t consciously think of any certain direction when I’m writing. I only try not to be repetitive or redundant. It’s important to evolve without ever straying too far from your roots and what established you. Some bands can stray, like Green Day who went from being punk rock to a radio pop band. But I think it’s important to remember where you came from.”
Mick: “We’re also amazingly lucky to have a singer like Corey (Taylor). Some people don’t like the softer shit, some people do... whatever. Corey’s aggressive shit is perfect in my opinion, but he can also sing like a motherfucker. It would be a travesty to stunt any of that. He’s got the range, so why not use it?”
