SLIPKNOT vocalist Corey Taylor has denied that he ever planned on leaving his main band in order to concentrate on STONE SOUR, his much-touted other group which is releasing its debut album on Tuesday (August 27th).

"No, there was no truth to [the rumors of me leaving] at all, man," Taylor told Launch. "At the end of the Iowa tour. I was just really, again, really burned out with not only just the complete brutality of SLIPKNOT, but I just needed to do something new. It was weird. I needed to go back to go forward. I was never going to leave SLIPKNOT. It was just about me being able to do this so I could come back and do SLIPKNOT with the same kind of energy that I had on the first two albums, you know?"

Taylor added, "This project was already really in place, but when I got off the Iowa cycle that's when it really started getting serious. That's when a lot of our really good newer shit came out. Because we were like, 'You know what? No conditions, no walls, no holds barred. We're gonna write what we write, and if people like it, they like it.'"

MARILYN MANSON: New Album Is Stronger And Uglier Than Anyone Could Imagine

MARILYN MANSON has described his fifth album, the much-anticipated The Golden Age of Grotesque, as being "different and better and stronger and uglier and much more theatrical than anyone could ever imagine."

"It is the most concise record we've done, so it's not as lengthy as any of the previous ones," Manson told MTV. "That doesn't mean it has less content, I just think sometimes less is more. There's time to focus on how good things are if there's not as much to look at."

The Golden Age of Grotesque is the first MANSON album without bassist Twiggy Ramirez, who was unceremoniously booted from the group in May. The slot was subsequently filled by KMFDM's Tim Skold (ex-SHOTGUN MESSIAH), who is also co-producing the LP with Ben Grosse (i.e. FILTER).

"I unfortunately haven't spoken to him since, but what had to be done was done," Marilyn stated about his longtime cohort. "I was going in one direction, but he didn't have a direction because he hadn't really made his way into contributing. I think his personal life was leading him somewhere different than where we were going, and I don't know, so I can't speak for him, but it's unfortunate. Hopefully he'll land on his feet. I still consider him a friend and I miss him."

In addition to working with the QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE's Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri on the side project HEADBAND, which also features AMEN's Casey Chaos and GODSMACK drummer Shannon Larkin, Ramirez is working on material for a demo that he hopes to use to secure a new label deal.
