SLIPKNOT's sixth album is once again being recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed the band's 2004 LP "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" and helmed 2014's ".5: The Gray Chapter".

A new SLIPKNOT song, "All Out Life", was released last October. The official music video for the track was directed by the band's own M. Shawn Crahan.

Singer Corey Taylor recently described the band's new music as "evil," adding that the follow-up to ".5: The Gray Chapter" is "going to be ridiculous."

According to Taylor, "All Out Life" isn't "nearly as dark and vicious as the rest of the stuff that we have that we're working on."

".5: The Gray Chapter" was released following a six-year hiatus during which founding SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray died and drummer Joey Jordison was dismissed.
