During in a recent interview with Heavy TV, Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has revealed what fules the anger in his music.
Interviewer asked ‘what fuels the anger and resentment in your music’, Corey responded:
“Memory. [Laughs] I haven’t forgotten anything. And I wish I could sometimes; maybe I’d be able to let go of some pettiness. For me, I’ve been able to work out a lot of things in my life.
But at the same time, sometimes it’s a curse to have a memory that long, but it’s also an inspiration. So if I can use that to help other people work out their anger, then so be it.”
On his vocal performances with Slipknot and Stone Sour, he said:
“I do it all. I’m comfortable with everything. I get the best of both worlds, basically, with Slipknot and with Stone Sour. And it’s cool, because it encourages me to try different styles constantly — try different things and see what I can get away with, see what I’m good at.
I’m sure there’d be some fans that would challenge this, but I feel like I’ve been pretty good so far at the things that I’ve done. So, for me, it’s more about the challenge of just figuring out what I can and can’t do and just having fun with it. So, I feel like I’m pretty adept at both.”
