We all know Corey Taylor is a great singer. This is what no one can deny. Well. He is best in both slipknot and stone sour.

We all know that Corey Taylor is a great singer so in addition to slipknot, stone sour is a great band too.

I like no masks and stand and deliver metal. That's why I like these guys.

Great band Cory Taylor is the BEST

265 All Shall Perish

Listen to them and they'll define you real heavy metal. Whoa! Their lyrics are so cool and brutal! And their music hurts the ears but they'd not want to let your earphones/headphones drop! They make the heaviest and the most awesome heavy metal music one can ever imagine. All Shall Perish needs to be heard and voted. Thank you!

271 Vio-Lence Vio-Lence Vio-lence was an American thrash metal band formed in 1985 in the San Francisco Bay Area. They released demo tapes, one EP and 3 LPs between 1985 and 1993. Their most stable line-up was Phil Demmel and Robb Flynn on guitars, Deen Dell on bass, Perry Strickland on drums and Sean Killian on vocals.

Now we're getting somewhere. Back in the 80's there was this little heavy metal movement called thrash metal, and one of these thrash metal bands were these guys, and Machind Head's Rob Flynn once used to shred his guitar like Hetfield himself. It was frenetic thrash METAL.
