Corey Taylor Says He Finds Hope in Bands Like Sleep Token


Corey Taylor couldn’t say enough good things about Sleep Token, whose record released last week.

Taylor, of Slipknot and Stone Sour fame, talked about the UK band, whose record Take Me Back To Eden dropped this past Friday. So far, the album is already getting love in some unlikely places. A recent interview reveals that he finds the band to be a breath of fresh air: had to say:

“When I first heard Sleep Token, I was like, ‘What the hell is this, man?’ They, to me, are one of the few new—I’ll call them metal, but there’re so many different levels and layers. There’s pop elements, there’s jazz elements… I love the fact that nobody really knows who they are. I love the fact that they don’t want to be known.”
“There are hints of early, early Slipknot there. At first we were like, ‘Nope. You get nothing. This is what you get; you figure it out. We’ll let the music speak for ourselves.’

“It’s stuff like [Sleep Token] that gives me hope for the future,” he concludes.

If you want to know what all the hype is about, give the new record a listen.
