Corey Taylor Lists Metallica, Iron Maiden, Anthrax, & More as Favorites

Read on to find out who made it into the top 10!

June 29, 2017

Corey Taylor of Stone Sour and Slipknot contributed his favorite metal albums to Rolling Stone’s list of “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.”

As if their 2015 covers EPs, Straight Outta Burbank and Meanwhile In Burbank…, didn’t give enough insight into some of Stone Sour’s favorite artists, here are Taylor’s top 10 favorite metal albums. (In the Rolling Stone article, Taylor couldn’t list them in any particular order and opted for alphabetical, so we scrambled it up a bit further for him.)


Metallica - Master of Puppets

Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time

Anthrax - Worship Music

Korn - Korn

Megadeth - Peace Sells … but Who’s Buying?

Sepultura - Roots

Pantera - Far Beyond Driven

Judas Priest - Screaming for Vengeance

Metal Church - The Dark

White Zombie - Astro-Creep: 2000 – Songs of Love, Destruction and Other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head


Taylor did admit that he could easily fit five more albums onto the list. What do you think? Is this a solid start?
