Corey Taylor On Trent Reznor: “Can He Not Just Leave A Little Awesome For The Rest Of Us?!”
Stone Sour have been smashing their way through Australia on this year’s Soundwave festival, and Corey Taylor has clocked in to talk about the festival, seeing Alice In Chains back in the day and, somewhat topically given that Nine Inch Nails are officially back, how awesome Trent Reznor is.
Check out the interview below:

House Of Gold & Bones Part 2 will follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, …Part 1, which dropped last year, also via Roadrunner, and was preceded by new Stone Sour single Do Me A Favor on February 12.
“Part 2 is much darker [than the first part], if I’m honest,” Corey told ThisIsNotAScene. “Aside from it being a completely different album, it feels more like a soundtrack to a movie in a lot of ways, man. It’s really thematic. There are themes from part 1 that reveal themselves and that come again, musically. There’s actually stuff from part 2 that you’ll hear that’s on part 1 and you’ll be like, ‘Fucking hell!’”
He continued: “We essentially recorded these, and this is where technology is now, so you could have these in a playlist on your iTunes and play them top to fucking bottom and really get that experience while you read both parts. So it’s some of our darkest music, our most intricate and complex music, some of the best fucking lyrics I’ve ever written, to be honest. Even writing from a narrative like that, it was so challenging. Plus, it’s got some of our best songs on it.
Stone Sour play Download in June.
