Corey Taylor: "People choose the easy way and compare Slipknot and Stone Sour's music"


Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor during an interview with "Corey Taylor Talks, Las Vegas," said that people often "choose the easy way" and compare the two bands' music despite their lack of similarities.


"I think a lot of it comes down to my voice. Like, there's a lot of people that think when I sing heavy with Stone Sour that I'm trying to do Slipknot. And then vice versa when I sing more melodic with Slipknot, I'm trying to be more Stone Sour. And it's, like, but you're not hearing the music, you're putting everything together. Like 'The Devil In I', a lot of people compared it to Stone Sour because a lot of it is melodic until it gets to that chorus and it punches, you know. And I'm, like, 'Ehhh... Not really.' It's Slipknot music, so it's a Slipknot song. And I think it's because a lot of people, for better or for worse, choose the easy way to figure out what they're thinking about, or what their opinion is. So if they read somebody say, 'Well, he's singing melodically, it has to be Stone Sour,' a lot of people pick that up, because it's easier to go with the crowd than it is to think differently. But we encourage our fans to try and do that stuff."
