THE SCREAMING QUEEN

We'd never really thought very much of anything Slipknot did was other than a pose, but at least we thought Corey Taylor's screams came from his heart. It turns out, though, that Taylor uses a screaming coach, called Melissa Cross.

She apparently sees nothing ironic in the concept of tutoring your scream:

Like a lot of music, there's a movement that occurs in the underground and it's a bunch of kids uniting under the idealism that music spawns. In the '80s there was this aggressive music because kids were pent up, and they needed to get it out. So the ultimate expression is to scream your guts out.

... but hey, if you're going to do some primal screaming, make sure you go to scream camp first so you can be properly organised.

I just found your blog and will do some cruising, but Slipknot is trash anyway. Take a listen to Opeth, In Flames and Shadows Fall. Latest Soulfly album is killer as well.
