Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor spoke in an interview with Dean Delray, and revealed who is the person he works for mask desing.
Interviewer asked ‘And who are the people? Are they like, people in Hollywood that make masks for movies?’, Corey responded:
“We work with different people. We worked with Screaming Mad George for the longest time.”
“He’s an effects guy from Japan. He did a lot of the special effects for… The movie that comes to mind now, ‘Big Trouble in Little China.’ He did a lot of that stuff. But he’s a maniac, he’s an amazing artist. He did the masks for us, for ‘Iowa,’ ‘Volume 3,’ he did a little work with us on ‘All Hope Is Gone.’
But then we worked with a bunch of other people. I had the privilege this time around, the new stuff that I’m working on, to work with Tom Savini.
He’s the godfather to me. Got to hang out with him, got to talk with him. Met him through a friend who actually works with him. And the three of us were kind of developing this new mask together so I’m kind of fuckin’ chaffed on that.”
He also talked about his new mask which he teased on Instagram a month ago, he said:
“I got it and it’s really bare bones right now because it has to do with what I’m gonna do underneath it as well. But it’s not there yet so I just kind of gave a little sample.
And people were like, ‘What the fuck?!’ I loved it. It blew up so quick. And then it turned into like 20 fucking news stories on Loudwire and shit. And I was like ‘You people need to get out more.’ Everybody was like, ‘Is it bullets?! What is that?! I don’t know what the fuck I’m looking at!’ So I loved that shit.”
