These are Corey Taylor’s Ten Favorite Metal Albums of All Time
Little known fact: when he’s not feuding with Chad Kroeger, Corey Taylor is actually a metal singer for not one, but two successful bands! One is called Slipknot and the other Stone Sour. Who knew, right?
This being the case, Taylor recently revealed his ten favorite metal albums of all time as part of As part of Rolling Stone’s ongoing series about ‘The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time’ (previous participants, if you don’t recall, include Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, and Black Sabbath’s Ozzy Osbourne). There aren’t a ton of surprises here — Nickelback didn’t make the cut! — but number the absence of Slayer will probably throw some people for a loop… as well Taylor’s number one selection. It’s worth remembering that Taylor almost sang on that album, and it ultimately wasn’t his choice not to, so it makes sense that he’d feel somewhat wistful about the record.
