Stone Sour Share Rough Demo of Old B-Side


Even big rock and metal bands we think of as holier than thou — such as those featuring the Single Most Important Person in Metal, Corey Taylor — make rough demos of songs that don’t sound all polished and gussied up. With that in mind, it’s fun to listen to this Stone Sour demo that isn’t much different than something any band could record in their practice space or bedroom; we’re all just people playing instruments, you know? Even if Corey Taylor is in fact superhuman.

The demo, at the time titled “Now I Know,” would end up being reworked considerably and renamed “Hate Not Gone” for inclusion on the special edition of Audio Secrecy. Guitarist Josh Rand offered of the track:

“A song Shawn [Economaki, former bassist] had laying around that ended up on the special edition for ‘Audio Secrecy.’ This version has different lyrics than the ‘Audio Secrecy’ version.”

Kinda neat, right? Listen to both versions below.
