Slipknot's upcoming new album contains some of their hardest material, including their heaviest song yet, according to the frontman.

The 'Wait and Bleed' hitmakers haven't released a studio album since 2014's .5: The Gray Chapter, which was their first since the death of bassist Paul Gray.

Vocalist Corey Taylor has teased the new Slipknot material in an interview that's sure to get fans excited.

"At a time when most bands are slowing down, I think we've written our heaviest song - one of them anyway - on this new album," Taylor told Metal Hammer.

"It's going to be f**king crazy. People are going to shit their pants when they hear it."

Taylor said the album is aurally similar to 2001's Iowa, but "matured".

"Some of this shit is just so hard and dirty fast," he said.

"It's also us at our most ambitious, our most experimental, also us doing what we f**king do best which is basically when everybody thinks they've got us figured out, we just smack them in the face with everything we've got."

The currently untitled album is expected to be released in 2019.
