What are you more excited for? A new Stone Sour album or a chance to see Slipknot in concert again?
ARTISTDirect editor and Dolor author Rick Florino recently got the chance to talk with both Aaron Lewis of Staind and Corey Taylor of Slipknot/Stone Sour about how they manage their solo projects, life as fathers, and a great deal more. It’s a fascinating read that dives not only into the minds of these dynamic frontmen, but also into their thoughts on each other and how they view the music industry.
Check after the jump for a bit of the interview and a link to the full deal.
Corey Taylor, singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, will be a featured guest on this week’s edition of NY Ink. You can check out a small clip of him below getting a tattoo in honor of late Slipknot bassist, Paul Gray. The episode itself will air this Thursday at 10pm EST.
Several weeks ago, drummer Ginger Fish quit Marilyn Manson, which wasn’t much of a surprise since not much was going on in the MM camp that I’ve heard of. Well, it turns out that he has joined up with Rob Zombie as the new touring drummer. Joey Jordison had to leave the band due to scheduling conflicts with Slipknot, who will be doing some festival tour dates this summer. Who else saw this coming a mile away? Anyways, check after the jump for a video of the new line-up rocking out the ever awesome ‘Superbeast’.
Slipknot‘s Clown has released a video that is meant to discuss his Black Dots Of Death project. However, the video is such a garbled mess that I couldn’t watch more than two minutes before shutting it off in disgust. After hearing ‘Let’s Get F**ked Up‘, I didn’t have high hopes. Now, whatever hopes were remaining are dashed. I’m happy for Clown that he’s expanding and still doing work, but I just can’t get on board with Black Dots Of Death. Anyone of you guys into this?
I love sharing these mashups with you readers, I really do. Why? Because I find them absolutely hilarious and it seems like you guys do to. After the jump is a rather fantastic mashup of Justin Bieber‘s ‘Baby‘ and Slipknot‘s ‘Psychosocial‘. Check it out and if you love it as much as I do, why not download a free copy of the song?
Slipknot have announced Donnie Steele to be their touring bassist for all 2011 Slipknot shows, which encompass a lot of festival dates, mainly in Europe. Donnie Steele was the original guitarist for Slipknot back in the day, so the band felt that this was “keeping it in the family”, in a sense. Donnie will be taking over for Paul Gray, who unexpectedly passed away last May.
Now, Corey has been saying that he isn’t sure what the future of Slipknot holds. However, there was a recent interview with Joey where he said that the band will not die and that they will forge ahead. Regardless of trying to stay on top of that see-saw situation, I was under the impression that the band had decided that when they were to tour again, the remaining members would split bass duties. In any case, it’s good to hear that Slipknot have committed to moving forward.
Hey all you rabid concert goers, BD Music’s own Vinny Mac has put together a list of five bands that he feels you have to see live before you leave this mortal coil. Check out the list after the jump and let us know YOUR favorite live acts.

Bloody-Disgusting has scored an exclusive interview with up and coming LA hip-hop artist Hyro Da Hero. Hyro stands out by spitting fast and furious rhymes with a full rock band behind him.

His upcoming album, ‘Blood, School, Work, Death’, was produced by Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot, At The Drive In).
I didn’t really run into many albums, or even songs for that matter, that I TRULY hated this year. Then again, I didn’t really put myself in a position to have to face much of that. Rather, this list of ‘Worst of 2010′ is going to reflect upon several situations that arose this past year which shocked and affected me. Read for on my ‘Worst of 2010′.
So it’s Friday and I want all of you readers to start your weekend with some jolly good laughs. So, for your viewing and listening pleasure, I’ve got Katy Perry going metal, Ke$ha doing some weird kind of polka thing, and, in what is quite possibly the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time, Slipknot’s ‘Wait And Bleed’ rewritten for Radio Disney. Enjoy!

From Corey Taylor: ”I wrote this song in my kitchen one winter, listening to people bitch about the holidays. Personally, I love the holidays, but they seem to bring on severe stress in most people. So, I wrote this in honor of crotchety, drunken bastards who don’t know the difference between a yuletide and a tool shed. Plus, I think it’s funny.”

The Grammy-winning, Platinum-selling juggernaut known as SLIPKNOT will be coming to multiplexes near you on September 22. Screenings of the band’s Download performance from the forthcoming DVD (sic)nesses will be held at major theatres around the world, including Mann’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and more. Screening cities and locations are being announced daily, so be sure and check HERE for updated screening and ticket info, as (sic)nesses might spread to your city.

On June 13, 2009, SLIPKNOT headlined the annual Download Festival in the UK, performing in front of 80,000 of their rabid fans. The performance was absolutely electric, in typical Slipknot fashion, especially since it came hot on the heels of one of the strongest years in Slipknot’s illustrious career.
It was indeed a year of “firsts” for a band that was a decade-deep into their hard rock superstardom and dominance.Their latest album, 2008’s All Hope is Gone, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 charts –the first time in their history. Slipknot embarked on a two-year touring trek that was globally successful, playing to packed houses across continents, including their headlining stint at New York City’s legendary Madison Square Garden, which was stacked to the rafters and chronicled by Rolling Stone.
It makes perfect sense that the band, known for their eclectic DVD collection, ranging from multi-camera angle concert documents to arthouse-style films, would release (sic)nesses, which captures a special performance at Download. All Slipknot shows are memorable, but this one is particularly memorable, as the band blasted through hits from all of their Platinum albums. On stage is Slipknot in its most natural state and (sic)nesses will put you in the front row.
As they gear up for September 7th release of highly anticipated new album Audio Secrecy, 3-time Grammy nominees Stone Sour have announced plans for a special intimate show/record release party at The Studio at Webster Hall in New York City on August 30th.
The special performance will be available for the entire world to see via a live stream that can be viewed on stonesour.com and roadrunnerrecords.com beginning at 8:30 pm EST.
Among the songs in that night’s set will be hook-laden lead single “Say You’ll Haunt Me,” (currently No. 6 at Active Rock and No. 17 at Modern Rock radio) and hard-charging new track “Mission Statement.” The band recently offered the latter as a free download and the response was massive, as fans downloaded the song more than 1,000 times an hour during a two-day period.
Stone Sour (lead vocalist Corey Taylor, guitarists James Root and Josh Rand, bassist Shawn Economaki and drummer Roy Mayorga) and producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Deftones) recorded Audio Secrecy at Blackbird Studios in Nashville during the destructive storms and devastating floods that hit the historic heart of Music City.
