Corey Taylor speaks the truth about Stone Sour

Corey Taylor

Corey Taylor is a well spoken man. I mean, how else would he be able to sell all those books and make a tour consisting of him spewing his opinions and doing acoustic sets of SpongeBob songs? What, people are extremely gullible? Could be that, but come on, how can you not agree with him when he says that he’s looking forward to:

“…basically becoming a mad scientist in the studio and creating an album that no one wants us to make.”

Quoted for truth. A new Stone Sour album is definitely something no one wants him to make. He then kind of ruins it by saying:

“Picture [Pink Floyd’s] ‘The Wall’ meets [Alice in Chains’] ‘Dirt’ on steroids, and that will give you a taste of what I’m shooting for right now.”

Quoted as evidence of immediate necessary psychiatric help. Yeah, last time I checked Pink Floyd and Alice in Chains were all about sugary radio hits, right? To be fair, the man has done his fair share of experimenting, proof of which can be found after the jump.


Corey Taylor brings teh lulz again

I love Corey Taylor, the guy is just a goldmine of funny articles, Dose of Metal owes most of its existence to him, because he’s just so easy to mock write about.

So like, I was wondering when 2012 would bring us more funny Corey Taylor interviews, but Corey doesn’t disappoint, he delivered RIGHT AWAY. This time he’s talking about the upcoming Stone Sour album:

Our ultimate goal is a double concept album, which the only way I can describe it is The Wall meets  Dirt on steroids. And I think it’s gonna be fantastic. And if I can pull it off, it’s gonna be the biggest thing we’ve ever done in our career.

See interview after the jump.

Wow, Pink Floyd meets Alice in Chains… ON STEROIDS! This just sounds amazing, probably a masterpiece in the making…

For once I’d like some honesty from musicians, something like “Yeah, this album will be Limp Bizkit‘s Chocolate Starfish meets Linkin Park‘s Meteora” or something. But no, everyone always shoots for bands like Pink Floyd.

Which reminds me, didn’t Fred Durst once describe LB’s upcoming album as Pink Floyd meets Pantera? Maybe it’s just a nu-metal thing, name-drop Pink Floyd and another credible band in your interviews.


13 is an unlucky number

Taking time out from liking the sound of his voice way too much, and talking shit about random people (plus banging on about how he’s not ready yet to make another Slipknot album), Corey Taylor has started talking about the next Stone Sour album instead (well, not really a change — he loves that shitty band).

The band apparently have 13 songs done so far, and the record is scheduled for a release next year. Which you would know, if you watch the video above (but I don’t blame you if you choose not to).

Expect the next album to be just as shit (if not more shit) as the last one and to bore everyone, besides 17 year-old-girls and testicularly-challenged men, to death.


Stone Sour = conception?

Great news if you like Stone Sour, bad news if you like good music. The aforementioned band may release a ‘double album.’ I’m no math genius but two Stone Sour albums + two ears = four times the pain. Damn.

The thing I can say is that it’s like little bits and pieces of the first three albums, but it’s very dark. I’ve got a story . . . it’s almost a concept album that I’m writing right now — and it might turn into a double album. There’s a lot of really good material that we’re all kinda coming up with and I’m really excited to get in to the studio and see what happens.

If you’re wondering what the title of this article means, by the way, I have no idea either. It’s a concept title. *wink wink*


Mike Portnoy and Corey Taylor roll on the set

Prom Queen

…bitch about the bands that made them big, and inject. Mic check mic check yoyoyoyo. Drum wizard and internet drama queen Mike Portnoy will meet his match in another internet drama queen, Corey Taylor, for a special one-off performance of Stone Sour at Rock in Rio festival September 24. We’re pretty sure there’s enough tension between those two and their (former) bands that if it turned sexual, the entire place might turn gay, so beware those of you who plan on going!

Anyway, a few more details: apparently, band’s regular drummer is expecting a child on the same day, and it’s not like Mike Portnoy has much work to do anyway, so he’ll fill in for Roy Mayorga. Nice for him.
