Good news, maggots: The new Slipknot mask Corey Taylor has been working on is likely going to be his scariest yet!

Taylor divulged the details on the mask in his recent appearance on the Wild Ride! With Steve-O podcast.

As transcribed by Kerrang!, Taylor said, “My new mask is gonna f—ing scare kids! It’s so gnarly, dude. It’s really uncomfortable; it freaked my wife out. She won’t look at it, and she loves crazy s— like that. She’s just like, ​That’s really bothering me, you need to put that picture away!’”

When it comes to the process of coming up with a new mask, Taylor details, “Sometimes we have a vision in our head. Clown is really good at it, because he’s an artist, so he’ll go somewhere gnarly and be like, ​Okay, I’ve got this image…’ and then we’ll have outside people create it. But then there’s some times where you’re just like, ​I don’t have a real vision, but I have an idea,’ and you talk through it with a visual arts guy or a visual effects guy, and they will create it for you. And then you’ll look at it and go, ​I like this, change this, blah blah blah.’ And you whittle it down until you get to something that’s really rad.”

When we’ll see Taylor’s and the other new masks from Slipknot was not mentioned, but who doesn’t love a little anticipation and suspense?
