In an interview with Let There Be Talk, Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor talked about the internal relationships between his bandmates and clarified whether they had a similar nature like Metallica or Mastodon.
As you might recall, the frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, Corey Taylor, has been working on his solo album for a while now. Taylor previously announced that his highly-anticipated album, ‘CMFt,’ would be released on October 2, 2020. A few months ago, Taylor released the first two singles from his upcoming album, ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped’ and ‘Black Eyes Blue.’
In a previous conversation, Corey mentioned the reason why he preferred to create a project of his own instead of using the material with Stone Sour or Slipknot. He asserted that the music he created was not a good fit for either Slipknot or Stone Sour.
Recently, Corey Taylor joined an interview with Let There Be Talk and answered questions about his current relationship with his bandmates. During the conversation, the interviewer wanted to know whether Taylor thought their internal relationships were similar to what Metallica and Mastodon had since they all were considered as ‘the machine‘ referring to
Here’s how Corey Taylor clarified whether their current relationship within the band was similar to what Metallica or Mastodon had as ‘the machines‘:
“Yeah, there’s a lot of baggage that comes with it, and god knows people in the band have dealt with my baggage over the years, so I’m no fucking saint here, I’m not trying to paint myself as the high and mighty guy shaking his stick – that dumbass shit.
We’ve all been through a lot, we’ve all gone through a lot – I mean, it’s life, but at the same time, there’s a great thing that happens when we’re on the road.
There’s always a moment during the set when we all kind of look at each other and we get that feeling again, like, whether it’s a song or like a certain moment that we always do the same thing, we all kind of come together and do something cool at that moment.”
“We’re all reminded of the connection, the brotherhood that we still have. And it doesn’t have to be kumbaya, but at the same time, we’ve been through hell for almost 25 years, and we’re still here. We may complain – I may complain – but, I mean, it’s still pretty fucking amazing what we’ve accomplished.
You still spend a giant amount of time away from your kids, you miss huge parts of family life; you’re not there for weddings, you’re not there for birthdays, funerals… It’s fucking tough, man, in a way, it’s a truncated version of people who are deployed, you know?
We get to go home more often, but it’s large chunks of time spent away from people who you love, and it sucks sometimes.”
