Corey Taylor is a man that never sleeps. In addition to being the front man for the metal juggernaut, Slipknot, Taylor also is the singer for hard rock outfit Stone Sour. He tours relentlessly throughout the year and when he is not on the road he is in the studio working on new music. His creative muse never rests and he has created some of the most memorable hard rock and heavy metal records of the past few decades.
When it came time to put together a new Stone Sour record, Taylor was inspired to write a short story that was eventually used as the basis for the group’s new 2-album concept record, House Of Gold & Bones Part 1 & 2. The story lent itself to be turned into some blistering hard rock.
Taylor is a lifelong comic book fan and has professed his love for the medium in countless interviews. With the prose narrative for “House Of Gold & Bones” already written, Taylor decided that the story leant itself to be adapted into comic book form. After pitching the book to a couple publishers Dark Horse Comics stepped in and helped Taylor bring the idea to fruition. READ MORE

Stone Sour have released a 30-second snippet of the song “A Rumor Of Skin”, which comes off their upcoming album A House Of Gold & Bones Part 1 (out Oct. 22nd via Roadrunner Records). You can hear the snippet below.
While I’m a fan of the dissonantly harmonized and filthy guitar tone at the beginning of the sample, the vocals quickly became overbearing and the song turned into something very radio-friendly. Perhaps the whole is better than the part? Hmm…. READ MORE
I was hemming and hawing over what kind of descriptor I should use in the headline. Should it be an LOL? Nah, because some of them aren’t funny. Should it be a Random Cool? Ehhhh….maybe? I settled on OMFG because that was pretty much my reaction looking at each photo.
You see, below you’ll find an image that features 18 yearbook photos from some of the biggest names in rock and metal. You’ve got “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, Eddie Van Halen, Gene Simmons, Tom Araya, and many more. It’ll definitely get a chuckle or two! Check it out below, READ MORE
Written by Bloody-Disgusting music contributor Sammy Key
Music is kind of like Four Loko. There are a bunch of different flavors and teenagers love it. It also shares the tendency to evoke this sort of statement out of people; “It was better back in the day though, when I first had it,” (you know, before they took out all the caffeine). It’s true, these days it seems like music, or at least popular music, has lost its edge entirely. Gone are the days of sneaking records with “Parental Advisory/Explicit Content” plastered across the cover into your room and the days of mindlessly singing along to the latest saccharine sweet single while your mom drives you home from school are in full swing. Where is all the door slamming? Where are all the secret shows? It used to be that songs on the radio carried some sort of message, but now all I hear are lyrics about whips, b*tches, peacocks and all other sorts of bizarre metaphors for genitalia. And that’s if there are even words at all! Half of that sh*t is all “wobble” these days (whatever that is). Rebellion seems to have fizzled out, and in its place a taste for countless remixes, “womps”, and repetitive, dirty lyrics has grown. But no one bats an eyelash. It just seems like the passion, the demand for excellence has died. It’s like the teen masses have lost their will to act out, at least when it comes to music. These days, we sure as hell aren’t your stepping stone. But we’re not likely to make a hit single out of that sentiment either. READ MORE
Hard rock band Stone Sour has released details for their upcoming album House Of Gold And Bones Pt. 1 including the full track list (see below), release date (Oct. 23rd), and the final album artwork (which is nice and creepy!). The second album will be coming out in 2013.
Guitarist Josh Rand states, “House of Gold & Bones takes everything that’s great about this band and amplifies it. The riffs, the lyrics, the grooves and the songs are like Stone Sour times 10. There’s also heavy stuff that’s like nothing we’ve ever done before. It’s dark as hell and a complete experience from the first track to the last.”
Singer Corey Taylor (Slipknot) wrote the lyrics of both albums as a linear story, one that will take all 24 tracks to fully understand.
The band released the first two tracks, “Gone Sovereign” and “Absolute Zero”, online recently. Head below to hear them. READ MORE
ARTISTDirect currently has a pretty amazing interview where Bloody-Disgusting favorite Rick Florino (author of the DOLOR series), gets to chat with both Slipknot/Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor and The Raven’s Edgar Allen Poe himself, John Cusack! The interview ranges from Taylor’s thoughts on the movie to Cusack chatting about when he first read Poe to (my personal favorite topic) how important music is to movies. Check out the interview here as well as the trailer below.
From V for Vendetta director James McTeigue , “The macabre and lurid tales of Edgar Allan Poe are vividly brought to life – and death – in this stylish, gothic thriller starring John Cusack as the infamous author. When a madman begins committing horrific murders inspired by Poe’s darkest works, a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) joins forces with Poe in a quest to get inside the killer’s mind in order to stop him from making every one of Poe’s brutal stories a blood chilling reality. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, which escalates when Poe’s love (Alice Eve) becomes the next target.”
The Raven is in theaters tomorrow, April 27th. READ MORE
