Paul Gray to Feature on Next Slipknot Album -
Late Slipknot bassist, Paul
Gray will have his final
musical contributions heard on Iowa metallers next album.
Slipknot, who are currently on a well deserved
break from their recent touring cycle, haven't yet announced a name
or date for their fourth studio offering.
In a recent interview Artisan News (via MetalTalk), Slipknot
percussionist Shawn 'Clown' Crahan spoke about late bassist
"There are songs that he's written that will be a part of the
next record," says Crahan in the video interview posted
"We're all going to have to think like him, and he'll be
there. He'll be there; there's no way Paul Gray will not be a part
of anything that we do for the rest of our career."
Gray's bass was placed onstage during Slipknot's last touring
cycle, with the band's touring bassist, Donnie
Steele, remaining offstage during shows.
Crahan also told Loudwire:
"As we all know, Paul was a major writing force in the band.
We've been sporadically touring for two years to share the grieving
process with our fans instead of doing it by ourselves and having
them do it by themselves - we're doing it together … Even though
it's been over two years, you've got to be able to go into the
studio calm, cool and collected, because I'm not ready to walk into
a studio and not see him."
