SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR Singer Previews Book And Comic Book On BitTorrent

Metal is about blurred lines; catharsis and doom, chaotic and calculated, masked and stripped bare. Maybe no one knows this better than Corey Taylor: the lead singer of SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR; two of the biggest bands in recent rock history. According to Taylor, "Nobody is one side." Nobody less so than this artist.

Blur is what Taylor is about. As a Grammy Award-winning artist, he broke metal's mold. As a New York Times-bestselling author, he probed the divide between good and evil. As a comic book artist, he brought STONE SOUR's sound to the page. Taylor tells stories in 3D; dissolving the line between media formats. Which is why BitTorrent wanted to work with him on a new BitTorrent Bundle experiment.

Taylor's new book, "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven (Or, How I Made Peace With The Paranormal And Stigmatized Zealots And Cynics In The Process)", debuts today in the U.S.; a memoir on the supernatural life. Our goal is to tell the story behind the ghost story; to bring you inside the messed up mind of Corey Taylor.

Download the Corey Taylor BitTorrent Bundle and get the following exclusive content instantly:

* Part 1 of Taylor's new book, "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven"
* Book cover art for "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven"
* A sample of Corey Taylor's comic, "House Of Gold & Bones", Book 1
* 4 original comic book covers
* 4 alt comic book covers
* Sketches from "House Of Gold & Bones", Book 1

Kick in your email, and see the story come together with an exclusive download of STONE SOUR's music video "Do Me A Favor".

This is horror and humor; paranormal reality; the start of the scary story 2.0. And you can get it on BitTorrent.

The BitTorrent Bundle is an Alpha project, made with and for the web's creative community. Its mission is to help artists connect directly with fans, inside the content they share.

Each BitTorrent Bundle, like the one created in partnership with Corey Taylor, allows artists to distribute content to 170 million BitTorrent users. And each Bundle comes with a key. Fans can unlock artist content with an email address, or a donation. The idea is to make each song a storefront; and each file more valuable, each time it's shared.
