Corey Taylor, the frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, has talked about the music style and the image of Slipknot and explained why he needed to do his own music during an interview with 95 Rock.
As you may recall, Taylor has revealed what influenced him to make his debut solo album on KaoosTV lately. He has talked about his new album ‘CMFT‘, which will come out on the 2nd of October, and admitted that there were a lot of unreleased songs that he’s written and don’t fit the style of both Slipknot and Stone Sours. He also added his fans urged him for a new path.
Recently, Corey has made a conversation with another source, 95 Rock, and he was asked whether he wants to create a more brutal type of music like on the first two Slipknot records. He said that he is always ready for such a thing, but it is hard to put your own ideas first while working in a group.
Some certain band members of Slipknot think that they’ve already done the heavy kind of music and they tend to explore other types of music, Corey said. He also explained that he needs no tension or the drama, yet, Slipknot’s music is not heavy enough for him.
Here is what Taylor said during the interview about wanting to create brutal music:
“I’m always ready for that, but sometimes it’s harder to push that agenda in the band. I know there are certain people in the band who – they feel like we’ve already done that, so we’re trying to explore other types of music that we can do under the Slipknot umbrella.
But for me – dude, I’m always ready. I’m always ready to bash my head against something like that. I don’t necessarily need the tension or the drama, but I’m always ready.
Sometimes it’s not heavy enough for me, to be honest; it’s not dark enough for me. But at the same time, it’s part of being in a band.
You work with what you’ve got, you compromise, you try to make an environment where everyone is making the kind of music that they all wanna make. But trust me, I’m always ready to bleed for it.”
