It’s no secret that Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is a fan of the macabre and is one of the darkest, creepiest personalities in rock today. This is why Taylor took to social media via Twitter recently to promote one of his most recent ventures, a documentary celebrating 80s era horror movies entitled: “In Search of Darkness”. This Slipknot member took a creepy backstage recent photo with this woman.
In this full-spanning documentary, Taylor is joined by horror legends and icons such as John Carpenter and Heather Langenkamp as they reveal their favorite moments from the hair raising genre. Here, Taylor reveals in this sneak peek, what he particularly thinks about 1980s era horror and the mindset of SFX visionaries. Corey Taylor’s ‘ruthless’ video angered Slipknot fans.
His words have been transcribed below. You can pre-order this documentary just in time for Halloween here.
“How do I rip your head in half and make it look like it was real? That takes a deeply disturbed mind, but also someone who is thinking outside of the box and going, ‘Okay, we’re going to make this fun, but at the same time really trying to fuck with people, you know?” – Corey Taylor
In other news regarding Slipknot, fans took to the subreddit of the group to discuss the vintage Slipknot track “Purity”, off of the band’s 1999 self-titled album and it’s legacy.
Unfound9 wrote: “My favorite song of Slipknot. When I first listened to the album, I remember thinking “Is this album even real?”, every song was so good that it took everything I had to NOT repeat a track over again until I heard the entire album the whole way through. My will broke when I heard Purity though. I had to listen to it a second time before continuing. Then, 10 years later, I’m in Des Moines at a Slipknot show and while Purity is being played, Clown recognizes me along the front row from a meet & greet two shows prior and hands me and another maggot (who met Clown & co. four shows earlier) each a drumstick with the big, cotton-wrapped heads (I don’t know the technical name). One of my most cherished memories.”
PentexRX8 said: ” After upgrading from my iPod with all my music ripped from cds to my iPhone and Spotify, I was surprised to find that Frail Limb Nursery and Purity had been removed. I had no idea. I am glad Purity is on the complete discography. I remember being legitimately creeped out by the girl’s story the first few times listening.”
Wolfpuzzy put: “Purity, has been my favorite song for the last 20 years….now it is number 2 and you guessed it Solway Firth is #1.” This Slipknot member was knocked out in a sad alcohol video not too long ago [was it Corey Taylor?].
