Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor shared his honest opinion about Metallica’s classic record ‘Master Of Puppets’ during a recent appearance on Knotfest’s YouTube account.
When thinking about Metallica and the song that represents the band, one of the first albums that would come into mind is ‘Master Of Puppets.’ It is the album that is considered the most influential thrash metal albums of all time.
The album was released back in 1986 and featured songs such as the title track ‘Master Of Puppets,’ instrumental ‘Orion,’ and ‘Battery.’ The album has eight songs, and its duration is around 55 minutes.
In the conversation, Corey talked about how the Big Four, Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer, shaped metal music with their sounds and said that the community loved them very much for their heavy and fast music.
Furthermore, Corey also revealed his thoughts about the iconic ‘Master Of Puppets’ album and praised its beauty by saying that it is nothing but ‘the perfect heavy metal album’ that doesn’t have any fat.
However, Corey went on to add that the only downside the ‘Master Of Puppets’ has is that the record is too short. As Corey said, the album ends before you know it, and you have to start it all over again.
