Slipknot Releases Dynamic Sixth Studio Album 'We Are Not Your Kind'

Slipknot is officially back with its sixth studio album We Are Not Your Kind. The new record (their first in five years) sees the band recruit a new masked member, but the evolution doesn't stop there. This collection of songs may be the Iowa-based rockers' most dynamic to date, incorporating more melody into their signature metal sound. It's also their best effort since Volume Three, according to frontman Corey Taylor.

"When we listened to it top to bottom, I was blown away. I was like, oh god. People aren't ready for this, man. It's really, really good," he said in a recent interview. "I mean, don't get me wrong. Those [last few] albums have great songs on them. But as far as a whole, it just didn't have that same vitality that the earlier stuff did. I feel like this one really captures what we've tried to do. This album musically, I could put between Volume Three and Iowa easily. But yet it can stand on its own...It's another step in the chapter that we're trying to create, basically."

Ahead of the album's release, Slipknot shared the video for "Solway Firth." Watch the visuals below and grab your copy of We Are Not Your Kind here.
