We've all been screaming along to standalone single All Out Life's epic 'We are not your kind' chant since October last year, but Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor didn't expect it to eventually turn into the title of the band's new album.
“I didn’t think it would be anything more than a great chant at a concert,” he tells Kerrang! in our world-exclusive cover feature. “It was one of the things in my head that I could hear 50,000 people screaming at the top of their lungs, pumping fists. It wasn’t so much that I thought it was benign or anything – it was definitely something that I thought, ‘This could be something really cool’ – but it took on a life of its own, and that’s when I really started thinking about the phrase; about how it could be perceived.”
"Once Corey dropped the lyrics and we heard that line in All Out Life, it was like, ‘Nothing will top this,’" adds Shawn 'Clown' Crahan, explaining how it became the obvious name choice for album number six. "It pretty much engulfs what the whole thing is about, and it’s the best representation of everything that we need. Trying to find anything else would really be contrived, you know what I’m saying? It engulfs everything we are.”
