‘We’ve got each other’s backs 100 percent…’

Posted on February 12, 2008

‘Four solid years of being Slipknot every day í¢ä‰åäó onstage and off í¢ä‰åäó had pushed the nine members to the point where, beneath their horrifying masks and matching coveralls, their nerves, patience and relationships with each other resembled the stage floor at the end of one of their violent, chaotic gigs.’ Joe D’Angelo writes for MTV. And now, they are stronger than ever. In this, an exstensive MTV interview, Corey Taylor, Joey Jordison and Producer Rick Rubin talk about the journey running up to the new album, and the processes behind the awe inspiring end result… Says Rubin, “What I tried to stress from the beginning is that Slipknot is a bigger idea than a sound. They can’t be limited by what they think Slipknot is supposed to sound like. What draws people to Slipknot is how extreme it is. But extreme doesn’t have to always be extreme in the same way. Sometimes extreme can be fast sometimes extreme can be slow. Extreme could mean extreme musically.” Check out the full interview at MTV.COM
