Speaking with with Simon Crampton at ThisIsNotAScene, Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT) stated: "Part 2 is much darker, if I’m honest. Aside from it being a completely different album, it feels more like a soundtrack to a movie in a lot of ways man. It’s really thematic, there are themes from part 1 that reveal themselves and that come again musically, there’s actually stuff from Part 2 that you’ll hear that’s on part 1 and you’ll be like 'Fucking hell!' We essentially recorded these, and this is where technology is now, that so you could have these in a playlist on your iTunes and play them top to fucking bottom and really get that experience while you read both parts.
So it’s some of our darkest music, our most intricate and complex music, some of the best fucking lyrics I’ve ever written to be honest, even writing from a narrative like that, it was so challenging. Plus, it’s got some of our best songs on it. You guys think Part 1's good, fuck off, ‘Do Me A Favour’ alone is going to kick the shit out of people and that’s going to be the first single which comes out in January, that’s going to be the first taste that people get of Part 2, and people aren’t going to know what to do."
Corey Taylor sat down with Graham "Gruhamed" Hartmann at Loudwire on January 23rd in New York City to discuss the band's new albums, House Of Gold & Bones Parts 1 and 2. Check out the interview below:
