Slipknot literally bleeding for new album

Credit: M. Shawn CrahanSlipknot is certainly known for being an intense band, but the masked metallers may have taken things up a notch with their upcoming new album.

On his Instagram, drummer Jay Weinberg posted a photo of his kit covered in blood. “In case you’re wondering what kind of album we’re making,” he wrote in the caption.

And while the music is forcing band members to literally lose bodily fluids, it sounds as though the lyrics will be equally extreme. Last week, frontman Corey Taylor revealed that the lyrics on the new album will be about a recent “dark time” in his personal life.

The currently untitled album, the follow-up to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter, is due out sometime this year.
