When talking about if he was happy with the album, Corey comments:
“Oh yeah, fuck yeah, man,” gushes vocalist Corey Taylor. “It surpassed my expectations. I’m very, very happy with it. I still listen to it. I’m just digging what we made, I’m really fucking happy about it.”
He also discusses the ‘screaming’ vs ‘melodic vocals’ question:
“Any time you scream, people think you’re pissed,” says Taylor. “And with good reason, because nine times out of ten you are pissed. But on the other side of that, people think that to show emotion you have to scream and I’ve been the first one to call bullshit on that for a long time. I think we’re able to show more emotion on this album, and there’s a lot of melody to this. It put the idea out there that you can be emotional and not scream blood into your throat. Everything that we tried just worked on this album and just felt really good.”
