Slipknot’s Corey Taylor “Humbled” By One Fan’s Interpretation Of His New Mask


Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has offered some more insight into his inspiration for his divisive new mask, which he worked on alongside horror fx legend/actor Tom Savini. Earlier today (June 12th) Taylor was made aware of this fan’s moving interpretation of the mask.

Essentially the fan likened it to the transparent facial mask he had to use as a kid while recovering from some severe burn injuries. After explaining how he had to endure less despicable treatment from others while he underwent that healing process, he went on to explain of Taylor‘s mask “…To me its a massive image of character change and reformation. the breaking of a person and the steps required to be better. Its not scary but that mask, my mask, made me into a stronger self sovern bulletproof person than what i may have turned out to be before i had to put it on.”

Taylor himself took to Twitter to comment on that, offering:

Slipknot‘s new album “We Are Not Your Kind” will arrive in stores on August 09th.
