Corey Taylor: These Bands Are The Future Of Heavy Metal

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor recently discussed the “current state of heavy rock music” in a chat with BBC Radio 6 Music.

He said: “I think the underground is always gonna be healthy. Because that’s where the majority of trendsetters, the cutting-edge artists come from.

“Whether it’s bands like Knocked Loose or bands like… There’s this fantastic band called Ho99o9 , which is like hip hop/metal/hardcore, they dabble in so many genres. And they’re SO good.”

When asked “Which acts should we be listening to from the past decade?” Corey replied: “Well, obviously, Rival Sons is right there. Royal Blood is a great rock act. There’s something visceral about their music that’s really, really good.

“If you wanted to get into the darker-edged stuff, Code Orange is fantastic,” he added. “Knocked Loose: their new album is sick, Oh my god! I mean, if you need music for a workout, that’s the album you put on. Their new one is just insane; it’s incredible. And this band… I’m not sure anybody’s heard about… Slipknot.”

Code Orange will be supporting Slipknot later this year for their Knotfest Roadshow North American dates. Tickets are available here.

Slipknot‘s latest album, We Are Not Your Kind, was released on August 9 via Roadrunner Records. Album was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed Slipknot‘s 2004 album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) and helmed 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter.
