“It’s an expansion of where we were at on We Are Not Your Kind,’ singer Corey Taylor stated. “This band has always prided itself on expanding boundaries, expanding our musical vision.
“There’s a couple of songs on here that people are gonna be, like…There’s definitely some pit openers that are gonna fucking freak people out.”
