During in a recent interview with LouderSound, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor and Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe has shared their thoughts about some topics of metal music.
“What do you think about metal getting appropriated by mainstream fashion? Kim Kardashian wearing Morbid Angel t-shirts and all that?”
“I’m in two minds about that. There’s a part of it that makes me want to set fire to whole fields. There’s also a part of me that’s like, ‘Fucking right! Good! More people should know who Morbid Angel are!”
“Is that era of cookie-cutter, overpolished metal coming to an end now?”
“I think so. The cream of the crop is gonna rise.”
“Yeah, the proof is always in the pudding. I do a lot of speaking gigs at schools and music programmes, and they always ask what my advice is. My advice is always the same: get in front of an audience. Learn to play, learn to make mistakes.
Don’t be afraid of mistakes; mistakes are the best ways to find those cool ideas. And the young bands that we’re talking about, you can tell that that’s what they’ve done, they’ve played together, they’ve gelled together.”
