Exhale, Slipknot fans!

As Shaun "Clown" Crahan is out promoting his new movie, Officer Downe, he revealed that Slipknot will begin writing their new album next February when he meets up with guitarist Jim Root to start getting basic ideas. He later elaborated that the band will spend all of 2017 writing a new record.

Naturally, many Slipknot fans are excited and one tweeted at Corey Taylor for clarification if it was true that Slipknot would begin working on a new album next year. Taylor clarified via tweet saying "not really" and that the band would only begin writing next year but won't enter the studio until two years from now…

We were predicting that Slipknot's new album wouldn't be released until Summer 2018 the earliest, but it looks like if they're just hitting the studio in 2018, we might be waiting until 2019 for new Slipknot.

We recently named Slipknot's self-titled debut one of the top 10 debut albums in metal history. Here's why:

    Oh, so exactly the same procedure as every album since IOWA then? Some members say: "Oh it's happening" and then Corey comes along and says "No".. How is this surprising or news at this point?

    • SleazyPMartini

      Right? And once again, someone took it way out of context. Same thing happens every album cycle. This is not news. Morons.

    2 years too soon. How about never make any of that horrible music again!

    • Jarle Solbakken Fremstad

      How about just not listening to them? Or no, wait, i'm sorry… Then you wouldn't have anything to complain about! How foolish of me. Douche.

      • more beer

        I Don't listen to them. Nor have I ever considered them a good band. So fuck off!

        • Jarle Solbakken Fremstad

          Yet you feel the need to waste your time reading and commenting about them? They won't go away just to soothe you, so why bother? You, sir, is the one who can fuck off.

            Did I hurt the little fan boy's feelings? I read the headline and clicked on it to talk shit about them. But go on and keep thinking a bunch of douche bags in masks,with a guy hitting a keg is good music. I love upsetting their fans. The band sucks. I f you don't like my opinion. Tough shit.

          • Jarle Solbakken Fremstad

            No feelings hurt here, Bub, I stopped being a fan over a decade ago. Still don't go out of my way to bash them though. Or any other band I don't like. Having an opinion is one thing, everyone has one. But plastering it out like some entitled little brat is another. It doesn't change anything, and nobody cares. I probably hate a good deal of the bands you like but that's my opinion and my problem. No need for me to badger the people that DO like them with insane nonsense. Go eat shit you waste of skin.

            No you just feel that you need to badger me for my opinion of a shit band. You're the entitled little brat who thought he would talk shit to me. Just so you know I am a huge metal elitist and wear it like a badge of honor. Not a single fuck given. Since you don't seem too smart I will explain this to you. This is the comments section of a metal website. Which means people are supposed to comment. If you don't like peoples comments tough shit. So go fuck yourself you little bitch.

          • Jarle Solbakken Fremstad

            Hahahahah, now who's got their feelings hurt? Wow you're just a pathetic, pretentious little douche, aren't you? I'd feel sorry for you if this wasn't so funny. Don't worry though, I'm sure somewhere loves you. Well, maybe not LOVES you, but somebody maybe cares for you. Elitist is just another word for close-minded, go shove that "badge" up your tight ass, I'm sure whatever sound it makes coming out is better than what you consider "music".

            Yet here you are defending Slipknot. You're a fucking idiot. Keep using your little buzz words. Being a metal elitist is have knowledge of the genre. Something you lack. I certainly don't need pity from a pussy Slipknot fan. You might want invest in one of these to clean the sand out of your vagina. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7ce8e7160f0101d7b64626f4ecd169bb2228110f5286ed4dba1a33a7122c8f24.jpg

            Well as I've said I'm not a fan, and being a metal elistist is NOT having knowledge, it's lack of it. Taste is subjective and has never been truth, the fact that you see your personal taste as truth proves your lack of any form of knowledge or intelligence. Further more, there is no sand in my vagina, arguing with you is the funniest thing I've done in weeks, I'm laughing my ass off at your petty attempts to seem like you know anything at all. But sure, I'll extend some form of an olive branch; What are these bands you so proudly hail as the pinnacle of musical existence?

  • fuck corey taylor

    And then Corey will say "That's the best lyrics i've written" fuck off.

  • Ahhh…Good to see the elitists being whiny bitches. Keep complaining in your tr00 kVlt caves, maybe you'll get laid, or better yet, take a shower.

    • Allan Hall

      It wouldn't be over Slipknot then.

  • Unholy Impetuous Ritual Plague

    Well i'm glad he's out promoting his new movie.. because it sounds horrible.

  • Cosmic Sea

    This is normal; Slipknot take years to release an album.
