SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor was the guest co-host on this week's "Taco Tuesday", ShockHound's weekly record review show. Watch the program below.On the topic of SLAYER's new album, "World Painted Blood", Taylor said, "I was pulled aside on the [Rockstar Energy Drink] Mayhem [Festival] tour by a certain gentleman named Kerry King, who proceeded to sit me down and played it track for track — even the bonus stuff. And, dude, I was blown away. I love this album, and I love it for three reasons: It's got the ferocity of the older stuff, it's got the growth of the newer stuff, and it's razor-sharp; the production on it is really good, the performances are smokin', it's probably some of Tom's [Araya] best lyrics yet, and... I just couldn't stop listening to it, and it was fantastic top to bottom; I was really stoked. When you grow up a SLAYER fan, you expect certain things from a SLAYER album and this album had it all and I was really stoked about it. . . [The production's] almost got that old-school feel to it — nothing is wet, like the '80s. Everything is just reefed in the mix and raw. It's a great album. . . It's not just a collection of songs put under the heading of an album. You can listen to the songs and they're good, but then you listen to the album as a whole, and it's amazing. And I think it's just a lost art in this day and age, and this is like a true, true album, and I'm really stoked that it's SLAYER doing it." Corey admitted in a new interview with Attitude TV that he tried out as lead singer for VELVET REVOLVER. Taylor said, "I had a meeting with those guys, we did some demos together, and it just didn't work — for whatever reason." He added, "It was just really cool. It was one of those things where it's like I could have got to jam with legends, man, in my opinion. But, you know, it was cool, and I still know those guys, I still hang out with them, and I still have nothing but respect." VELVET REVOLVER has been searching for a new lead singer for more than 18 months since dismissing Scott Weiland in April 2008. When Slash was asked about Taylor joining the group a few months ago at his official fan site, he reportedly said that "it looked like it for a minute, but (the band) had decided against it." Taylor, who also sings in STONE SOUR, was reportedly thinking of taking the frontman spot in veteran thrash act ANTHRAX a couple of years ago. SLIPKNOT just wrapped up a North American tour on Las Vegas on Halloween (Saturday, October 31) with a headlining gig at the Trinity Of Terrors horror convention. Taylor next plans to work on the third STONE SOUR record, with sources telling The Pulse of Radio that the band has been meeting with producers in Los Angeles.
