Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has announced that the Corey Taylor Collector’s Edition of the 80’s horror documentary “In Search of Darkness” is now available. In a trailer, Taylor described the first horror movie[s] he ever watched as a kid growing up in Iowa. Alternative Nation transcribed his remarks. A Slipknot Member [was it Corey Taylor]’s younger girlfriend was newly revealed. The documentary can be bought HERE.
“John Carpenter’s The Thing… I saw it on HBO when I was nine or ten and it was the scariest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.. living in Iowa it was snowing at the time while I was watching it. I was terrified dude, like really freaking out. And then right on the heels of that, I saw American Werewolf in London, which was even more nuts… those were my first introductions to ’80s horror and after that everything else just felt dull. It was just such an overpowering sense of Holy Fuck, what was that?” – Corey Taylor on the first horror films he saw as a kid.
This Slipknot member confirmed the real reason for his departure a couple of days ago. In other news regarding Slipknot, fans took to the subreddit of the group to discuss the vintage Slipknot track “No Life”, off of the band’s 1999 self-titled album and it’s legacy.
SlitThroatCutCreator said: “Was going to ask about Diluted then see the post is coming tomorrow. I have seen reviewers who have disliked the rapping on this song. I appreciate the Cool J and Chuck D references. I think they shied from hip hop influence afterward. This is a track I feel will be better live as it has Corey’s weird inflections in the recording. Kind of a thing with Liberate where after the first verse he sings ”Liberate my madness” and it sounds kind of annoying but in 2013 Corey does it better for me.
I like the rapping well enough though Only One does it better and Spit It Out probably being the worst for me. Something this album doesn’t get credit for is song moments with turntable moments that shine or some vocal sample on Prosthetics.
Maybe the songs don’t click as much as later installments but other members seemed to have more importance on here and deviations over repetition done more often. That bass is sick as hell after the first chorus as well.” A Slipknot member recently revealed what really killed Prince.
Fellow Reddit user Ciilk gave their detailed thoughts on the track.
“This song doesn’t appear to have been played after 2000. It looks like it was only played before and during the self-titled tour(s).
The reference to LL Cool J in the song is a reference to his song “Mama Said Knock You Out”, specifically the following verse: “Watch me bash this beat like a skull // That you know I’ve beef with // Why do you riff with me // The maniac psycho // And when I pull out my jammy get ready”
This song is kind of like Liberate for me, where I like it but it’s forgettable and not one I’d put on a best of/favourites list; easily skippable. However, from 1:30 on (where the clean vocals start) is some REALLY good shit. I’ve always loved the cleans there and that whole verse has been stuck in my head for almost 20 years.
Seeing the live performances actually made me like this song more, it just sounds better live. The performance in 1998 is kind of cool because there are certain parts of the ,song that are a bit different, for example, 1:09 (after the chorus), the instrumental part of the song runs a bit longer. Also, the part at 1:30 that I was mentioning earlier is played differently and a little quicker tempo wise.”
