Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor was recently interviewed by Alex Distefano of OC Weekly and revealed how did Slipknot decide to wear the masks for the first time.

Here is his statement:

“The reason we started wearing the masks in the first place was to take the emphasis off identity and we used it to get more into the music.

But now after all these years we wear the masks to make the performance more intense, it is part of what makes a Slipknot concert unique but if you’re into music it shines through no matter what for us it’s just about putting on the best show for our audience and all the fans, if your heart’s in the right place and you love it, you can’t go wrong.”

Taylor also shared the latest information about his knee injury:

“When you’re in a band like Slipknot you’re bound to have some damage done. Right now, I’m not pushing anything.

I know my body that is the best I can do I know my limitations.”
