Ozzfest may leave quite an impression on Japan next year. The longtime hard rock and metal festival turned a few heads earlier this year when it was announced that Slipknot and Black Sabbath would headline the two-night destination festival in Japan. Now comes word that four more heavy hitters have signed on to play.
Slipknot fans may have their heads implode this week in Des Moines when Stone Sour plays at the local club Wooly's. That's because Slipknot's original singer, Anders Colsefni, will take the stage Monday night (Oct. 29) with his current band Painface to open the show for Corey Taylor's hit-making outfit.
Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor knew early on he wanted to do something special with their latest disc, and with 'House of Gold & Bones Part 1,' the band doesn't disappoint. In fact, this dark tale of a person's inner battles getting over a traumatic relationship break leaves us yearning for more (thankfully, there will be a 'Part 2').
When Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor initially revealed his band's "grand" plan for their next album, he might have undersold it. As it turns out, releasing the album in two parts is only the beginning, as Taylor is plotting a comic book companion piece and now he's contemplating turning both discs into films.
