Both Disturbed and Slipknot have new albums that are recorded, and frontmen David Draiman and Corey Taylor have periodically provided updates regarding the new releases. In February, Taylor told SiriusXM DJ Eddie Trunk: “The record is actually in the process of being mixed right now,” Taylor said. “Everything is finished, so it’s just being mixed right now, which is rad news. So it’s probably gonna take … I think it’s probably gonna be another three months (before it’s released). The artwork’s done. We just came up with the title. I’m not gonna tell you it right now. But we’re really stoked. So hopefully three months from now — well, less than that — we’ll get the single out, and then three months from now we’ll get the album out.”

During Slipknot’s recent concert in Cincinnati, Ohio, Taylor told the crowd: “Now, we don’t have an exact date on it, but I’m here to tell you, you’re not gonna be waiting very, very f*cking long. Goddamnit, I promise you, you will have new f*cking Slipknot music very f*cking soon.” Slipknot’s forthcoming album will be the band’s first since 2019’s “We Are Not Your Kind.” The band previously released a new song from the album, “The Chapeltown Rag,” last November. 

Earlier this week Disturbed’s Draiman took to Twitter saying: “Listening back to the mixes. Amazing record. Very proud. (Also, there’s a surprise track on here that’s going to blow your minds)”. In May at Disturbed’s concert in Camden, New Jersey, Draiman said: “It’s about 90 percent heavy as f*ck. Now there’s still 10 percent of caring, loving goodness [laughs] — 10 percent. Hey, for everybody that fell in love with ‘The Sound Of Silence’ [Simon & Garfunkel] cover, I figured, you know… But the rest of it? ‘Sickness’-, ‘Ten Thousand Fists’-era Disturbed, for sure. You excited about that? ‘Cause I’ll tell you we’re really f*cking excited about it.”

Disturbed’s forthcoming record will be the band’s first since 2018’s “Evolution.” “The material is somewhere between ‘The Sickness’ and ‘Ten Thousand Fists’ as far as where I would identify it as sonically,” he explained during an appearance on KLOS radio show, “Whiplash.” “It’s rhythmic, it’s pummeling, it’s anthemic, it’s polysyncopated. It’s meat-and-potatoes Disturbed.”
