Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Says Bands Like Sleep Token Give Him Hope For The Future

During a recent appearance on “The Allison Hagendorf Show,” Slipknot’s Corey Taylor praised Sleep Token. He says artists like that are giving him hope for the future.

Taylor said the following:

“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.’ When Alicia was like, ‘You have to check this out,’ I can remember sitting down and just going, ‘Jesus, this is really good.’”

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