SLIPKNOT: Root Thinks *The End* Could Have Been Better

Jim Root of Slipknot feels that the band could have done so much more with The End So Far.

Rott told Music Radar that making an album during the pandemic put them at a disadvantage before they ever got into the studio. "We did not do pre-production. We essentially built this record in the studio, and a lot of that was due to COVID, and us being separated, and the circumstances led us to do the record the way it was done."

He added, "With my mindset being the way it was, I didn't have a ton of creative input. I felt kinda rushed trying to come up with ideas for this or that arrangement. We weren't rehearsed as a band. We did not come in knowing the songs top to bottom, and that affected the record. That put us behind schedule."

Root wished they'd plotted out that schedule better. "It is taking us so long to get it out compared to how long it took us to track it! It's like, well, if it has taken this long to get it out then we could have taken our time with pre-production, and, in my mind, put out a better product. And that's not to say that we're disappointed with what we are putting out; it's where we are at. It's what we were able to do, given the circumstances, and the things that we had to work with."

The End, So Far is out on Friday.
