The song All Out Life which was released in October will not appear on the album with Slipknot stating that the song didn’t fit.

Guitarist Jim Root noted, “This is the most time we’ve had to write a record, and work stuff out together.  One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full length albums – not just songs.  While the industry is moving toward singles, Slipknot wanted to make an album experience, front to back.
