Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor had a recent conversation with ‘Heavy Consequence’ this week and shared his thoughts on Anthrax’s new comic book named ‘Among the Living Graphic Novel’ which he contributed alongside other stars in the music scene.
You may remember from our recently published article that Anthrax is about to release a new book which will feature the story of every single song of the self-titled album that was written and drawn by celebrities like Rick Remender, Brian Posehn, Joe Trohman, Gerard Way, Mikey Way, J.G. Jones, Eric Powell and Corey Taylor himself.
In his interview with Heavy Consequence, Corey was asked to share his feelings after being the guest of Anthrax’s comic book with his drawing of ‘A Skeleton in the Closet’ which is the fifth track of the album that was released in 1987. According to Slipknot frontman, he was always an Anthrax fan and it’s a ‘what if’ moment until that day.
Here is what Corey said in the conversation:
“To this day, it’s one of those ‘what if’ moments. However, because I’m a massive fan, I realized this was the starting point for them getting [classic singer] Joey [Belladonna] back.
The thing I loved about that song and I loved about that title, ever since I was a kid, is that it resonated with me on a level where everyone has skeletons in their closet. Once I started thinking about that, I took it in a weird supernatural vibe.”
