“Fans of the heavy metal band Slipknot will eagerly devour its lead singer/songwriter Taylor’s first book, which displays a prose that perfectly captures the supercharged energy, aggression, and outrageousness of Slipknot’s music…Powerful and moving.”
“An in-depth argument for the redefinition of sin, meshed with personal stories from [Taylor’s] childhood and career.”
Seattle Weekly (Duff McKagan blog), 7/21/11
“It looks fascinating…Corey Taylor is one of those people that just seems impossibly good at whatever he chooses to pursue, and I have no doubt that this tome will reflect this fact.”
AOL Noisecreep, 8/10/11
“A compelling read, the book is a refreshing journey through an age-old concept and its definition. The warts-and-all approach he uses in his lyrical approach is used in Seven Deadly Sins to winning effect.”
“Exceeded my expectations…Corey’s on-stage personality came across as very likable, and his direct interaction with the fans made it completely worth the time and money they invested towards this show…A delightful two-and-a-half hours with Corey Taylor...I recommend this show not only to fans of Slipknot and/or Stone Sour, but also to fans of rock music in general, because there’s something in it for all of you. A terrific performance indeed.”
Hollywood Music Magazine, 11/22/11
“[Taylor is] a literary genius of this day and age….‘Seven Deadly Sins’ is full of hilarious and thought provoking metaphors, innuendos and references that need to be highlighted just so you can show your friends…I can not recommend this book enough, hell I will buy you a copy or let you borrow mine if it means that you’ll make some time in your busy days, to read at least a few pages at a time. This a MUST-READ book if I’ve ever seen one.”
Corey is very opinionated and I respect his opinion and I recommend this book to every Stone Sour and Slipknot fan.
Corey is very smart and funny and humble and grounded and has a personality that draws me in, and you can feel all of this when reading the book.
I can say that while reading the book I laughed, cried, and at one point wasn't sure if I may have been a little offended.
It was a pretty entertaining book! I will say Corey Taylor can go off on a rant from time to time..... But with a face like that, and a voice like his..... it's easily forgiven!Published 11 days ago by Jennifer Johnson
Lol... friggin Corey Taylor. He cracks me up. Hes a very cynical and definitely has a touch of A.D.D. but this book was something to behold. I enjoyed this page after page. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Carrie Guffey
