Last night, August 14th, Slipknot singer Corey Taylor took to Facebook for a live Q&A with fans, and he opened up on a range of topics, from the hardest song to write for the band’s new album, We Are Not Your Kind, to his favorite new and old ‘Knot songs to play live, to whether he has plans to write another book anytime soon.
Among the more interesting tidbits that came up, Taylor revealed that he was initially opposed to the choir in the intro toWe Are Not Your Kind lead single “Unsainted.” “I was like, ‘No, no!’ I don’t want to say it was dumb, but it didn’t feel like us… until I heard the mock-up for it, and just the mock-up alone was incredible,” Taylor admitted. “And then having a real choir sing on it was … I mean, it was literally the last song we were able to say was finished, and it was because we were trying to find the absolute right way to make it perfect. And we nailed it. I was really stoked — I was never so happy to be wrong in my life, let’s put it that way!”
He also promised that Slipknot would be playing new fan favorite “Nero Forte” live sometime soon. “Absolutely — probably not soon enough for a lot of fans,” he noted with a laugh. “But definitely once we knock the rust off of it, then we’ll definitely be able to get that out there.”
