Slipknot Percussionist Chris Fehn: "We're Gonna Overtake Metallica"

Band Photo: Slipknot (?)

Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn recently spoke with KansasCity.com regarding the bands future and proved that he's extremely optomistic about where Slipknot's future lies. "I think we’re going to overtake Metallica. We’re going to overtake any band that sells out soccer arenas in Europe. We’re going to do it. We’re the last chance as far as the world goes."

He continued: "We haven’t even made our 'Black' record yet, wait until we do that. It’s over, dude."

Despite his claims, frontman Corey Taylor has in the past been less positive about the band's future, declaring a few years back when the band was touring in support of "Vol.3" that the band would probably do one more record and then quit in case they became a weaker version of themselves.

What's Next?

It seems to me that he's trying to convince himself more. If Taylor were to leave Slipknot, I couldn't see them carrying on or achieving much success without him. Fehn doesn't do alot for the band anyway and Slipknot is more or less a meal ticket for him, so if they were to disband then he's out of a job and may have to actually *gasp* actually do something for money.

Honestly, I am very tired of people talking the talk, but never walking the walk. Honestly, great that you want to surpass Metallica. Surpass them in what? Do you want to make a great album? Then shut up and do it. Don't tell me you are going to, just do it. Then say I told you so.

I liked that Robb Flynn said we wanted to make our own Master of Puppets, and I think they did. He backed up his claim. Not one person comes to mind lately that has said, we wanted to make the heaviest record ever and have done so.

In my opinion they are just attempting to grab press, but I am still not buying their record.

We honestly need less talking from the metal community and more action. Need more doers.

Let slipknot have there bottle! Right now there the closest thing in metal to actually putting metal back on MTV or muchmusic! Depending where you live! We all know that we can stand anymore gangster wanna be's on our radio airwaves! We need a band to break that barrier for us! Were losing the war for metal to become more mainstream! Why? Because every little girl that's part of the jonas brother fad is buying there cd! So if slipknot can appeal to that crowd let them keep doing what there doing! Right now we need a band like them! They may not become bigger than mettalica! When they don't and metal is back on the airwaves then they did there part for metal! So if they believe there that big so be it! When they don't accomplish there goal! The true metal fans win! So let's pray that they can sway the views of a thousands of little kids metal wins! Let's just hope because all hope is gone for slipknot!

In my opinion, Vol 3 was their 'Black' album. They sold out big time. Slipknot and Iowa were heavy as F*CK. Period. Vol. 3 came out and they hit radio waves sounding like f*cking 3 Days Grace.

If there last two albums were as fuking good as their debut and iowa then I think then could have had a shot at being in the top 5 maybe. But the last 2 have not been as good. They will never overtake metallica at anything. I used to be a huge slipknot fan years ago but sh** like this is making me p***ed off at them. Fuk your egos.

There's a reason Metal has never truly been mainstream and it should not be. It's been a style that regularly says f*** the mainstream.

I don't want my bands on energy drink commercials, reality shows and all the absurdity that seems to walk hand in hand with mainstream media. I don't want my music trivialized and given a make-over to make it more palatable. Metal should remain the black sheep of the musical family. Metal should be taking all the ugly sh** out there and putting it in the faces of people who can't deal or like to pretend it doesn't exist. Metal needs to show that beauty can be found if you dig deep enough in the ugliness.

f*** bands like Green Day on a "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
I want a band like Lamb of God saying "Walk With Me in Hell".

Amen, brothers and sisters.

Although I don't own one Slipnot CD, I think they're a good band. However good comes before great and they're not great at this point. I can understand the point of the statement. Someone should be making an attempt to be the shyt again. Outside of the old school bands. Im all honesty the closest anyone has come to Metallica musically speaking was Pantera and it was so obvious Phillip ruined that band, but song wise they had the music for eternal greatness. Then losing Dime was the crusher to it all. What eveyone seems to forget about Metallica is the song's they have made. It was the music and the relentless live shows that make them great. Not just the success of the "black album." It all comes down to the music and the musicians playing that music. Slipnot has made it this far because of there ability to play. Like Metallica they have awsome musicianship! Being great and "taking over" where greatness left off wont be an easy task. The black album analogy could be changed to master of puppets and they would still be pushing it!! Greatness is all things, many things!! The masks..cool for those who got it, but Slipnot will have to produce a batch of undeniable tunes to surpass a still working and kickin much a$$ Metallica, and probably lose the damn masks for good!!

If they can't play they have no place on your profile!! Joey is good but he aint the whole band. Why be negative when its obvious you appreciate something about the band? The question is, can they surpass or even become equal to the Metallica we all know today?? The answer to that depends on the level of music they can continue to produce. The music and only the music seperates the good bands from the great ones.

I would love to see this happen.
The statment: "Over take metallica" was clearly used in perspective. He doesn't actually expect to outsell the highest selling "metal" band.
There are a few statistics I think they could run with and possibly beat...but the legacy is not in question.

Slipknot's sound would need dramatic change if they wanted to become more accessible to a wider range of audience. The "hard as f***" and also radio friendly tuned songs of vol. 3 and AHIG were, imo, the pinnacle of sales for Slipknot. They simply couldn't reach, or even target a wider audience than that.

Metallica on the other hand, is your typical "classic rock", "hard rock" music that ANYone could listen to and almost enjoy. "unforiven" for example, is a rock tune that a motherf***er of any age could enjoy. Slipknot cannot produce a sound enjoyed by anyone unless they change their sound completely I.E. "sunff"

I'm just gonna say that Slipknot are properly popular for their anthem songs - People=sh** and the Heretic Anthem, Duality and Before I Forget being the main ones. The new album had none of these except possibly Psychosocial, and even it was sub par. They were relying on their past to sell albums, because Subliminal Verses got them the large fan base due to increased radio play. All the little scene and emo kids then found the music accessible to them.

The new album has nothing special to it, and is merely an album, no real flair in it. If the next album sells as well as AHIG I will be very surprised.

What has their music ever contributed to anything?! I'm sure there are a few weirdos out there who will say that sh**knot changed their lives, but its no question that it would be a smaller number than the Metallica crowd. It's Metallica for Christ's sake, their music is beautiful, passionate and has meaning to every song. Can you honestly listen to every Slipknot song and tell me that they wrote that from inspiration of a person, place, thing, event, feeling, whatever and not to just have another record out there so they can make money? Not to say that Metallica didn't sell out at one point but even load, reload, and st.anger have a distinct theme/mood that they felt while they were writing it. it's still art even if it is for money. and not to take away too much from sh**knot, im sure they do put part of themselves in their music but the scale is unbalanced so to speak, metallica puts alot more in and thats why they will always get more out of their music. Slipknot needs to shut up and appeal to their legions of hot topic fans and leave the legends alone. What's next? Corey is gonna get the balls to say that theyve been more influential then Sabbath or Zeppelin, or Elvis?

Well as great as Metallica EARLIER stuff is it seems redundent. You all think that Metallica is the best and great but they ended up selling out! LONG LIVE DAVE MUSTANGE. I found that Megadeth was better. My opinion.

Kirk could never help a candle stick to Marty Friedman. If you have a clue you know that I am right.

Who is making better albums these days. All of you owned Iowa and know that sh** is so dark and deep. The first album is just sic. Vol 3 is so diverse and versatile. The last album just is.

One more point, I did not read the interview nor was I there. I notice the "metal world" likes to stir up sh**. Come on it's f***ing soap opera and all you spoon feed elitist eat it up. Could someone have taken something out of context?

For an example. Joe in a fit of rage says, "I'm going to shot someone." As he begins to spray his children with a water.

You all think Joe is crazy and stupid for killing someone. Glad that some of you have some intellegence to know these things.

By the way when the Black album came they should have called it Sold out up their ass!

I just can't understand why people seem to think of metallica so high and mighty, yes i respect the fact they have been in the music scene forever and helped form alot of todays hard rock but they are very overrated , even the old metallica like master of puppets and ride the lighting its really nothing special.

This will be a long post please bear with me. Where to start here.... I have read all 74 comments and all I can say is some of y'all have to stop comparing the two bands based on one album. I will not make an argument for or against either band but, here's what I will say. Some of y'all are musicians here. Be you bassists, guitarists, or drummers. What I hear when I hear Slipknot is noise. Low-tuned, heavily distorted noise. (Side note I loved Iowa so I'm not bashing it) They have been working toward some song design over the last few albums but, have yet to find the perfect mix of design and noise. It appears as they are still somewhat searching for a sound. What makes a band great is the ability to pull you into a song and make you want to listen. While I see Kirk being more technical than SK, he also has a sound. It's like Van Halen or Slow Hand or St. Joe, King or Jones. When you hear it (without vocals) you know who it is. Metalllica has established themselves over the years. I would argue that "...And Justice for All" is the most technical album Metallica has put out (song structure, key changes, etc). I don't think SK has hit that point. If SK wants a "black" album then do it! Don't talk about it. Metallica has a longer record of putting butts in seats without changing their style too much (save for the last few albums). If you notice SK has appeared to have dramatically changed their sound (Iowa vs. Vol:3). I would also submit to y'all Aerosmith. Been around forever and have stayed true to their sound with minor tweaks to keep with the last 30 years! One final though. Metallica for their time pushed the boundary of music. SK happened to come at a time where most if it has already been done. There is not as much of a wow factor. Like with any band, if you want money make to 40 music and change your sound. If you do, fans will notice and the original fans will fall by the wayside. Just one person's opinion. Thanks for reading.

Dear Chris Fehn,
You are an egotistic f***. You are the 3rd drummer in a 9 piece band from east bumblef***, USA who've been wearing halloween masks since they were ejected from the womb. Not only do you have a dildo for a nose, but you're about as good as one too, your heads way up your ass. So instead of standing on 4 adjacent timpanis and flinging your stupid c***nose around, go get a real job and make something of yourself you fool. Your music was good to me when i was 10 and knew nothing at all about metal. Give me the 20$ i spent on volume 3 back when i was still a fan of your sh**ty band, fa**ot.

DOOD - I agree. Most "younger people" (I'm not old but not a spring chicken either) don't listen to different styles of music. Most younger people listen to one style of music and that's all. It would help to listen to everything. I personally happen to like Aerosmith. I also like, Bach, B.B. King, SRV, Harry Connick Jr., Garth Brooks, Ice Cube, 808 State, Front 242, and Muddy Waters. Listening to different styles broadens a person's horizons. There are tons of different styles too. House, trance, rock, metal, blues, big band, classical, etc. , etc.

I think its funny that because slipknot made Vol 3, that they sold out? Thats a stupid and ignorant thing to say. Once again as i have said many times, just because a band gets radio time with a couple singles, hand starts to sell more, in no way means "selling out"! It means they changed their style a little bit and a different crowd kinda liked it. And im not even a slipknot fan, I do not own any of their albums, I do however love stone sour. I think iowa and volume 3 were their best two albums. Their new one sucks, except for the song snuff. Most of you throw the words "selling out" around a little to much. Just because a band is not underground doesnt exactly mean they have sold out.

I must also say that slipknot will never beat out metallica. That was a stupid thing to say. Slipknot really hasnt even made an impact on metal. Its not like if slipknot never exsisted we would be lost. Bands that change the course of music are the ones to be thankful for. Sorry slipknot, but it will never happen. Very few bands have changed music, in my opinion those bands are- beatles, pink floyd, led zepplin, metallica, lynyrd skynyrd, slayer, RATM, KORN, tool. Since the late 90s all the music changing bands have kinda stopped, havent heard to much lately that will change music.

Not gonna happen. And after Metallica, we will not see a band filling stadiums. So it goes. As for Slipknot becoming the leading metal band, well..

What you are missing in all this is the ticket prices. While I would consider going to see SK, Slayer, CC, etc. if they came to New Orleans, I probably would not go just due to cost. Personally, using the money to take care of my family far out weighs going to a concert. I believe a few weeks ago there was a post about Metallica and GNR going on tour together. The comments from everybody regarding that post I believe, explains the ticket prices and the economy very well. Finally, "everybody just got punked" Seriously!?

Netromancer - "it's ok to disagree on music. You don't need to fell personally threatened." I agree. Music should be fun and enrich people's lives regardless of style. Banter back and forth about a band is good. Just leave the personal attacks out of it. What was that slogan many years ago? "...life happens while you are listen to music" (something like that).

BlindGreed- Not to mention it was only $6, right?

The first time Slipknot made me say, "Wow, that was pretty cool," was on their Subliminal Verses tour when they had to find a replacement for Lamb of of God because LOG was banned. They could have taken the Metallica route and gotten a Godsmack-type band, but instead flew in Obituary from Florida just to give the LA audience a truly special guest. Granted, most the "maggots" had never heard of Obituary. Not only did it blow most of the kid's minds, it was the first time most had seen a real death metal band.
If Slipknot is the starting point for kids to get into more "extreme" or "kvlt" bands, than they are the new Metallica. Well, at least for those of us who know that Metallica has been dead since, what '95?
Slipkot is the new Metallica, and Metallica is going to be the new Ozzy!

I think even a coke addled Slipknot percussionist knows that lumping ones bands name with Metallica is an instant lighting rod...ride at your own risk.

Having heard all of Metallicas albums and all of Slipknots(!)...What can I say I was a fan in my teens--still follow their course.
I actually think Slipknot have demonstrated more metal in the studio lately. yes, yes...off with my head..Just compare each bands last 4 albums.

Taste and common sense tell me that Metallica's debut to Black are THE template for metal...Right next to Sabbath, Priest and Maiden but today Slipknot actually make heavier songs. Sad but True.

Just not better ones...Never classics.

When it comes to taste though, Slipknot are McDonalds...Fun once in a great while but not the staple meat and taters that is Metallica.

for people who think both metallica and slipknot are sellouts think about it. who wants to do the same thing all the time they both came out and played heavy and fast and they were the best at doing so now there changeing and playing different types of music its still metal just cause its not as fast and heavy as it used to be.its still good music dont sterotype the music u listen to

As for stereo-typing, isnt that what you do when you change your sound to become more commercially acceptable? Last I checked most good metal bands didn't sound like the watered down crud that gets shat out of a radio or MTV. When has metal ever been about being popular and radio-friendly? Metallica, Slipknot, whoever. If you want to be more like Nickel Back or Creed, more power to you. But I won't be listening or supporting the band in any way. I just can't stand it when bands become softer or more commercially acceptable and people try to tell me about how it's better for the band or they are experimenting. Becoming music that soccer moms can play in their mini-vans is not expanding your musical style. While I am not a big fan, I hope Slipknot doesn't aspire to be what Metallica has become. If so, then the spirit and attitude that started them on their way will be gone. Making money is not selling out. Selling out is when you no longer play from the heart.

Like I said in post 75, it is too much of a change from Iowa to Vol:3. Has Napalm Death changed? How about CC? Don't think so. These types of bands understand it. It's not about the money or having the number one top forty hit. It is about playing what you feel and what you want to play regardless of stupid MTV (sidebar: when do they ever play music videos?). That's what music is all about. When fans see that you play what you feel, you might have less fans because it's not as popular but, you will have a stronger and more loyal fan base. I'm a guitarist, and my only fan is my four-legged friend and she just howls when I play!

I will reiterate:

The reason I b**** about them, despite the fact that I dont like them, is because:

"they are an insult to everything I love about metal, and I want them to stop it."

They make people think they listen to metal, when all slipknot is, is Britney Spears with drums and heavily, HEAVILY downtuned guitars. Pop music that sound angry. It's easy to digest, but people think they're badass for listening to it. Sort of like somebody chugging smirnoff and thinking they're cool because it says it's a vodka-based drink. The fact remains that no matter what it tries to call itself, it's just kool-aid with alcohol in it. Slipknot and it's fans can call themselves metal all they want, but that doesnt make it true. Just them trying to insinuate that they are a part of my music, is an insult of the highest degree.

"Pop" is short for popular. Megadeth's last album debuted at number 5. Lamb of God's last one was at number 8 the fist week. How about Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power? That one went all the way to number ONE.

I guess it stems from the BFMV touring with Slayer and being on Wacken. I just feel offended when this poser metal keeps meddling with my actual metal. Slipknot represent the same thing to me.

I really dont mean to seem like I'm making a personal attack Music Fan, I just cant stand this band anymore, and I hate to see people continue thinking they're the best thing since white bread. I directly attempted to try and not attack you yourself, just your music, if you felt otherwise I apologize.

and Bruno, while i see your point, I do want to emphasize that "pop" is not realy used in the way it's namesake would actually imply. Pop is a term used these days to describe a particular music with certain qualities that make it easy to listen to for the lowest common denominator. I would not call a band like Pantera or Megadeth pop, because that's not what they were aiming for. They just ended up being popular because alot of people ended up liking them, because it was actualy quality music. The music that is labeled "pop" is purposely designed to attract the widest demographic fom it's outset. People like it because they're programmed to.

It's like the difference between a publix Ice Cream cake, which is made nice and widely accepted as the decenct standard of cake, that everybody enjoys, because it's made with marketable likeability in mind; and a 2000 dollar Wedding cake, designed by an actual artist, to be as beautiful as possible. Everybody likes the Publix cake because they're programmed to, they're supposed to. Everybody likes the Wedding cake because it's beautiful, because it's a masterpiece. That, in an extremely abstract metaphor(lol), is the diffence between a band like Lamb of God becoming popular, and a band like Slipknot becoming popular.

FAN
I agree with you for the most part except that both Lamb of God and Slipknot (we can even throw Megadeth and Pantera in there) 'can' be VERY similar. The devil is in the details.

Megadeth - "Trust"
Lamb of God - "Redneck"
Pantera - "Walk"
Slipknot - "Wait and Bleed"

These songs are virtually interchangable in design because they follow the common verse/chorus pattern--pop-format and they're littered with hooks which make them as "catchy" as Kelly-f***ing-Clarkson. These songs get handed to radio and Mtv to make these bands more (pop)ular.

Crunchy guitars and screaming tend to make music "less pop" but I assure you if you forced a pop fan to listen to the chorus of "Now You've Got Something to Die For" enough times they will be singing along.

The fame of all 4 bands has more to do with their timing within their respective genre movements, than content or quality--though Slipknot did have the padding of the stupid mask gimmick.

I'm not trying to tell you you're wrong, theres no right or wrong in taste, just trying to let you see another angle. I ramble too.

^i really hadnt gone back and thought about that in that direction, although something along those lines WAS itching at the back of my head telling me i was missing something important...

I do try and block out the fact that lamb of god made an entire album where a normal listener could easily sing along, right at the height of their career...

I guess what I mean is that I consider Slipknot pop-metal in the sense that ALL their songs, or at least most of them, are designed to appeal to the masses. The other bands may produce individual songs with the same characteristics, but the overall goal is to just make metal. I can certaintly fault and point the accusing finger when my favorite bands make that sort of artistic slip, (god knows I yell about the song Redneck more than anything) but when a band's entire mission statement is just such a travesty as to follow the coattails of Justin Timberlake's latest single, I can hardly be blamed for not containing my disgust with them.

Then again, where does one draw the line? there is only so far you can go in trying to make your music less "pop" and therefore less appealing, before your music can only be classified as crap, and arguments like this become moot. :/

Pop means popular like death metal means lyrics about death, i.e. it doesn't.

FAN's initial point was right - I don't have any problems at all with nu-metal bands or people liking them. Hell, even touring with real metal bands is fine by me - why? Because nu-metal is so easily distinguishable and so far from metal that they can do no harm to the music I love. However, bands like BFMV etc. who parade around as metal erode the walls of everything I think is sacred. That is why we say what we say music fan.

If I could quickly point out, Lamb of God had a HUGE rise on popularity in about 2005 or so? Being direct support to Slipknot on the 2004 Ozzfest side stage and then following that up by being direct support to Slipknot on their Subliminal Verses tour was the reason for most of the new fans.

I would be curious to know how many people got into Lamb of God by going to see a either of those Slipknot tours and left the thinking, "Damn, I need to go check out the latest disc from that opening band Lamb of God."

I promised y'all a dissertation about SK, so here it is...... The term "pop" while it's meant to mean popular has evolved to the top 40 radio songs we think of as "pop". It is thought of as Spears and the like. While I do agree with most of y'all the some metal bands have changed to pop music (in it's original form of the word) some bands have sold out. A true artist writes what they feel and what they believe. If you want to call a band a sell out to me, that's a band going and making an album just to be top 40 and not playing from the heart. "RememberMetal?" (post 143) makes a great point about SK and Pantera. I don't think Dimebag was thinking top 40 when he wrote the riffs. I think (I might get killed for this one) that SK is a fad band. Meaning like belle-bottoms of the 70s or everything in the 80s (God the 80s sucked! LOL), it came and went. I know all of y'all, off of the top of your head, can name bands that have come and gone. Some bands have lasted longer than others but most bands but, regardless of style of music, will fade eventually. The key is not how long a band lasts but, how that band is remembered. Will the band be lumped together with other bands in a conversation or will the band stand alone in a conversation due to what the gave back to music? To me that is the true test of a band. Now, if I can just get my dog to stop howling at me when I play life would be better! LOL
