Frontman COREY TAYLOR spoke to Rolling Stone recently and explained the concept behind the 2-part albums:
“Each song tells a different part of the story, but it’s so unique unto itself. That was one of the things we really wanted to go for; we didn’t want to do a batch of tunes that all sound alike. We wanted to make sure each song had its own soul, basically.”
The band recorded the albums simultaneously at Sound Farm Studios in Iowa, which is the same place SLIPKNOT recorded their fourth album, All Hope Is Gone. Comic book fans will be pleased to hear that the House of Gold and Bones project will also include an accompanying comic book series, which will be released around the same time as each album release.
