Song titles are garbage and the album art is one of the worst I've ever seen.

What are you doing Corey? Why make ground with Stone Sour just to go back to Slipknot and regress your songwriting?

I have $50 that says at least half of the people who are bitching about song titles here think titles like "Reign in Blood" and "Butchered at Birth" are literary genius.

Also, that album art is horrible. Looks like the person (Ok seriously, is that a he or a she? Do I even dare to say HeShe(It)?) is trying to seduce but is doing a bad job.

I'm really not that excited so far. Slipknot is doing a bad job getting people amped for the first release in 5 years including losing 2 members. Looks like another Avenged Sevenfold lmao

I sort of get what they're going for with the album art. If they took it in a different direction it probably could've been a
really haunting image but the way it is now just doesn't really accomplish that
