Stone Sour (Corey Taylor) – ‘House of Gold & Bones, Pt 2′ – ‘Stalemate’
Interview by Marc Zanotti
Stalemate has a simple but by no means underwhelming message, as Corey Taylor explains. Knowing full well that Peckinpah has his back, the protagonist forces himself to push on, despite reaching a cognitive stalemate with those around him.
“Stalemate really represents continuing on,” Taylor elaborates, “that moment you have to dig your heels in and think ‘It’s going nowhere, I’ve got to heep hanging on.'” Describing the battle scene of the song, Taylor explains the war is between the human and those who fail to see his cause.
Corey Taylor came into Music Feeds Studio to break down Stone Sour’s House of Gold & Bones – Part 2 track by track. Feeds will be releasing the interviews all week long, giving fans an insight into the complex narrative and thought process behind House of Gold & Bones.
