With the release of Slipknot’s new album, The End, So Far, Wacken TV has shared their interview with drummer Jay Weinberg, conducted back in August, discussing the record prior to the band’s show at Wacken Open Air 2022.
Weinberg: “This album was a lot different based on the circumstances that everybody was dealing with. We all had to become very self-sufficient home recorders and engineers and stuff, and that lends itself to a lot of different experimental stuff that people have not heard on a Slipknot album before. So from my standpoint there’s a lot on there of what makes Slipknot, Slipknot; stuff that we’re not gonna get away from if we tried. We’re very happy to celebrate that dig deeper into the things that we know are trademark Slipknot, but also challenge ourselves and do things that are experimentally creative that give Slipknot a completely new voice. The new album, it’s an interesting step forward.”
