Corey Taylor talks about Audio Secrecy

In an interview with MTV, Corey Taylor spoke about the Stone Sour’s new album ‘Audio Secrecy’.

“It’s so good, man. Every song has a catchy hook — even the heavy stuff — every song is loaded with melody. It’s still got the attitude, but it’s there. It’s probably the best thing I’ve done in a long time,” he told MTV News. “I mean [Slipknot’s 2008 effort] All Hope Is Gone was a great album, and I worked really hard on it, but on this album … coming in with the amount of material — we recorded 18 songs — and knowing that every tune not only has its own identity but is damn good, I’m very, very proud of that.”

“I finished my last song two days ago, and it’s all killer; there’s no filler. It’s so good. I mean, there’s so many vibes and so many styles, but it’s all cohesive. The continuity is there,” he said. “It doesn’t sound like a comp album, it doesn’t sound like 12 bands coming in going, ‘We’re going to record a song!’ It sounds like a band exploring, which, to me, is [a] really old-school tradition.

“You never used to go in and just kind of chop out a bunch of songs and throw it out there. The old guard would go in, and they would just record what they had. They would record the songs that they wrote, because they wrote them. It didn’t have to sound a certain way, didn’t have to be a certain way, it didn’t all have to sound the same,” he continued. “It had life, and that’s what we did with this. … We just said, ‘You know what? We wrote this. So what if this is heavier than that? So what if this is in a major key and these are in minor keys? … We feel this, so let’s go for it.’ “
