STONE SOUR, the band featuring SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root, are still hard at work on their sophomore album with producer Nick Rasculinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, VELVET REVOLVER). The drum tracks by session drummer Roy Mayorga (ex-SOULFLY, currently a touring member of SEPULTURA) are complete, according to the most recent studio report submitted by guitarist Josh Rand. "Jim and myself just finished up guitar tracks for the song 'Your God' today, so that makes 8 out of 17 rhythm guitar tracks done," Rand said. "[Bassist] Shawn has also started tracking this week and Corey plans on singing tonight."

You can check out photos from the studio at this location.

STONE SOUR drummer Joel Ekman was forced to sit out the recording sessions for the group's new album in order to spend time with his nine-year-old son, who was diagnosed with Brain Stem Glioma (brain cancer) last fall.

STONE SOUR's new album will follow up the group's 2002 self-titled debut, which went gold and featured the hit single, "Bother".

By the way Stone sour is really a good band. it shows that Cory and Jim aren't narrow minded when it comes to music.

They definitley are not black metal... or metal at all really. It's pretty much just jim and corey's lighter side. Stone Sour is an okay band... but nothing compares to the intensity of Slipknot.

StoneSour are OKAY. if that. but they'r hardly metal. i mean, if Slipknot are nu-metal, and StoneSour are even lighter again (almost hard to believe anything could be), then there's no possible chance that StoneSour are Black Metal, Gore Metal, or any type of metal at all.

and Funk? serious? well, it sounds kinda odd and silly, but who knows, maybe it'll SOMEHOW work?...then again, maybe not.

dude Headace lighten up they were making a joke. Stone sour kick some serious asss and i have to say after listening to their album once i was hooked. they are a complete turn around from the heavy Nu-metal that is slipknot. i really do enjoy it. i hope the corey makes the funk work or i am gonna shoot his ass.
