Watch: Corey Taylor Perform Solo Material Live for the First Time… on Japanese TV!


Corey Taylor, aka Metal Jesus: big in the U.S., big in Canada, big in Europe, and last but certainly not least, big in Japan!

The Slipknot and Stone Sour singer performed material from his new solo album live for the first time a few days back, and it came in the form of an acoustic performance of “Black Eyes Blue” on a Japanese TV program.

Putting all snark aside for a second, Taylor’s vocal control here is absolutely phenomenal; amidst all the Corey Taylor Thinks™ hooplah we often forget just how talented of a singer the dude is.

You can check out the performance below.
