Slipknot's Corey Taylor

Corey Taylor Reveals His Favorite Slipknot Mask


Corey Taylor has donned many masks over the years for his ever-evolving appearance fronting Slipknot. But it turns out one mask in particular stands as his favorite. Speaking with The House Of Maskswhose impressive collection of metal related masks has been featured here in the past—Taylor was asked which mask was his favorite, to which he replied:

“Honestly, the ‘All Hope Is Gone‘ mask was my favorite. It was so easy for me to tap into that character, tap into that weirdness. ‘Cause you couldn’t see my eyes, it really took all the humanity out of it.

All of them had their moments, but that mask for me just felt right. So I think the next one I do I’ll kinda base off that same kind of idea.

I’m always looking. I thought I had it with this last one, but it didn’t come near… It looked great, but it’s also gotta function, and I had a lot of problems with it right out of the gate.

Whereas the ‘All Hope Is Gone‘ mask, I put it on and that was it – it was just fucking on from that moment. So yeah, I think I’m gonna try to get back to that vibe.”

You can see Taylor wearing that mask in the below video for the band’s track “Psychosocial“.
