Deicide’s Glen Benton Tells Corey Taylor And Slipknot To Blow Him


Moments after saying he’s totally anti politically correct, Deicide frontman Glen Benton put Corey Taylor and Slipknot on blast during a recent episode of the Talk Toomey podcast, complete with a homophobic slur. Benton wasn’t pleased that apparently some years ago Corey Taylor told him that he would take them out on tour at some point, having cited them as a big inspiration. That never happened, as Benton went on to say:

“Not to fucking bust balls, but I’ll bust balls. Slipknot: ‘Oh we’re going to take you guys out man, we’re going to take you guys out dude.’ Yeah blow me. That’s what I say to you. Fucking blow me Corey Taylor and all you fags. OK. ‘Oh we’re going to take Deicide out on tour with us and blah blah blah.’ Blowing air up our asses, back in the day You know what, you never did a fucking thing for us. You introduced us at a show once. Great thanks. How about a fucking tour? How about fucking helping us out a little bit? I mean we’ve only been doing this for several years. You guys were like ‘Dude you were what got me started.’ Well you know what, return the fucking favor. You know what I mean?”

While not referring to Slipknot explicitly, he further stated:

“This is how they get away with getting out of having you on a tour. They offer you a shitty amount of money where it’s virtually impossible to do it, so you end up declining or cancelling or whatever the fuck and then you look the like the idiot.”

He later downplayed his comments and mentioned that he doesn’t mind opening for bands, but expressed his frustrations with groups that list Deicide as inspiration telling him they want to take them on tour while rarely following through.

“I’m not trying to bust balls, but when bands like Slipknot and shit, they fucking… say they’re going take us out and shit… It’s just one big fucking puff of air up your ass. Not that I give a fuck about opening for them, you know what I’m saying? Because I don’t. I’ll tell ya this about our band, we’ve done it our way, we’ll always do it our way and the success we’ve achieved, we’ve earned every little bit of it. We don’t compromise, we’re not about to kiss corporate America’s ass so that’s why we’re still underground man.”

He also mentioned that tracking for a new album will begin in September:

“Next month, September, we’re going to start tracking drums and guitars. And then I’ll start writing lyrics—I’m already started on most of it now. I’ve got an album concept already, got the titles, maybe the possible title track and everything. I’m telling ya man, Steve wrote… I really lit a fire under him man, and you know, Steve‘s responsible for writing a lot of our catchier shit. I really lit a fire under him this time and he wrote some really astounding shit this time…”
