SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor was interviewed by Artisan News at this past Monday’s (March 17) exclusive VIP listening party for the Ronnie James Dio tribute album “This Is Your Life” and awards gala at the Avalon in Hollywood, California. Check out the chat below.

As previously reported, Taylor shows up briefly in the first trailer for “Fear Clinic”, an upcoming horror film in which Taylor makes his acting debut. The film stars Robert Englund, best known as Freddy Krueger in “A Nightmare On Elm Street”, as Dr. Andover, a doctor who treats patients afflicted with crippling phobias by inducing hallucinations inside an invention he calls the Fear Chamber.

Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio what it was like to work with a horror icon like Englund. “One of the coolest dudes I’ve ever met,” he said. “You know, we were sitting in the makeup trailer and he’s telling me stories from the ’80s of being at the Rainbow with GUNS N’ ROSES and I’m like, ‘Please tell me more!’ You know? Sweetest dude I’ve ever met, super fun, super awesome and we had a really good time like making that stuff. And I had a handful of scenes with him and I, I had a really good time.”

In the film, Taylor will play a clinic employee named Bauer who struggles to keep things under control when all hell breaks loose. The movie will center around one traumatic event that induces phobias in a group of different people.

Also appearing in the movie, which began life in 2009 as a five-episode series for the web site FearNet.com, is Lucas Till from “X-Men: First Class”, Danielle Harris of “Halloween 4” fame and Kane Hodder, best known for playing Jason in several of the “Friday The 13th” movies.

There is no word yet on a release date for the film, although producers are aiming for Halloween 2014.

Taylor is one of a number of well-known musicians from the metal and hardcore scenes who recently joined forces with singer/bassist Mike Dean and singer/drummer Reed Mullin of hardcore punk veterans CORROSION OF CONFORMITY to create the new project TEENAGE TIME KILLER.

The instrumental parts for the upcoming debut release from TEENAGE TIME KILLER, which is named after a RUDIMENTARY PENI song, were recorded at Dave Grohl‘s (FOO FIGHTERS, NIRVANA) Studio 606 in Northridge, California on the famous Sound City mixing board, which was the central focus of Grohl‘s acclaimed “Sound City: Real To Reel” documentary.

Taylor and the rest of SLIPKNOT are currently at the work on the band’s first studio album in six years, which should arrive in late 2014.

SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor last year joined the cast of an upcoming horror film called “Fear Clinic”. The movie began life in 2009 as a five-episode series for the web site FearNet.com. The series starred Robert Englund, famous for playing Freddy Krueger in “A Nightmare On Elm Street”, Lucas Till from “X-Men: First Class”, Danielle Harris of “Halloween 4” fame and Kane Hodder, best known for playing Jason in several of the “Friday The 13th” movies.

The first teaser trailer for “Fear Clinic” can be seen below.

Englund returns in the film to his lead role as Dr. Andover, a fear doctor who treats patients afflicted with crippling phobias by inducing hallucinations inside his exposure therapy invention; The Fear Chamber.

The series, which focused on a different phobia every episode, reached over five million hits on FearNet.com. It has since been added to On Demand, YouTube and Hulu.

In the film, Taylor plays a clinic employee named Bauer who struggles to keep things under control when all hell breaks loose. The movie centers around one traumatic event that induces phobias in a group of different people.

“Fear Clinic” is scheduled for a Halloween 2014 release.

Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he was more interested in screenwriting than acting. “I have no aspirations to really get into acting, you know,” he said. “I mean, it’s something that — I’ve always wanted to write for movies, you know, I’ve always wanted to write a screenplay and I’ve written a couple in the past and what not. But yeah, if it happens, it happens, you know. It’s not something that I pursue.”

Taylor and fellow SLIPKNOT member Shawn “Clown” Crahan have their own film production company called Living, Breathing Films, although to date the company has yet to announce or produce a movie.

Crahan is reportedly set to make his directing debut with “Officer Downe”, based on a graphic novel.

Legendary guitarist Slash (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER) will guest on the Thursday, September 26 episode of Conan O’Brien‘s nighttime talk show on TBS, “Conan”.

For more information, visit TeamCoco.com.

Students at the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy in Sioux Falls, South Dakota will get a huge treat on Saturday, September 28 when Slash comes to visit and jam with them. The school provides music education for kids from Boys & Girls Clubs and focuses on playing rock music. Academy founder and Dollar Loan Center CEO Chuck Brennan first met Slash at Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin. The two hit it off and started discussing the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy and the fact that it’s the first-ever free music program for the children of the Boys and Girls Clubs.

Brennan said, “Slash was so impressed that he immediately wanted to get involved and show his support to the academy and the kids. Slash will be the first celebrity rock star to watch the kids perform and see their concert.”

When Slash found out that one of the student bands intends to perform the GUNS N’ ROSES version of Bob Dylan‘s “Knocking On Heaven’s Door”, he insisted that he get up and jam with the kids.

Brennan remarked, “Can you even begin to comprehend how cool it’s going to be for these kids who just learned how to play and are performing their first little concert in front of their peers to play with Slash?” The legendary guitarist will meet with the students after the show to offer advice and encouragement.

The concert at the Academy will feature three student bands who have been learning their instruments since the school opened in April.

“Nothing Left To Fear”, the first horror film produced by Slash under his Slasher Films banner, opens in limited theatrical release on October 4, and hits VOD and DVD on October 8.

The Pulse Of Radio reports: Although Slash and BLACK EYED PEAS singer Fergie became good friends after collaborating on a song for Slash‘s first solo album, when it came time to name her new baby with husband Josh Duhamel, Fergie went with the first name of Slash‘s former GUNS N’ ROSES bandmate, Axl Rose. Were Slash‘s feelings hurt at all? Asked by TMZ what he thought of Fergie calling her son Axl, Slash said, “I think it’s really cool, I actually talked to [Fergie and Josh] yesterday. It’s all good . . . who am I to judge?”

Slash told The Pulse Of Radio a while back how he first met Fergie and what he thought of her. “I did a BLACK EYED PEAS fundraiser called Peapod, and she showed up. I’d never met her before, and I was expecting, really, I thought, a Puerto Rican girl, ’cause of the way that her songs sort of sound. And so here’s this white girl from Orange County and that really sort of surprised me. And then we started doing this LED ZEPPELIN song and she jumped on the vocal and it just blew my mind.”

Fergie and Slash ended up recording a song called “Beautiful Dangerous” for his 2010 solo debut as well as a cover of GUNS N’ ROSES“Paradise City” that ended up as a Japanese B-side.

Slash has been working on material for his third solo outing, but is also currently doing press for “Nothing Left To Fear”, the first horror film produced under his Slasher Films banner.

In addition to producing, Slash scored the film and wrote two original songs for it, with vocalist Myles Kennedy from his band singing on one of them.

“Nothing Left To Fear” opens in limited theatrical release on October 4, and hits VOD and DVD on October 8.

Former PANTERA and current DOWN frontman Philip Anselmo has been confirmed for the Mad Monster Party Gras 2013 horror convention, set to take place September 13-15 at the Sheraton hotel in New Orleans. Anselmo will appear at the event on Saturday, September 14 only.

There are a limited number of discount rooms at the Sheraton, so act fast to guarantee the Mad Monster discount.

For more information, visit www.madmonsterpartygras.com.

As previously reported, Anselmo has joined forces with internationally renowned, best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell (“Hollywood Death Scenes”, “Dead And Buried”) to create Housecore Horror Film & Music Festival, the ultimate underground, three-day horror and heavy metal fan event that will combine live concerts from some of the biggest bands in metal and hard rock with more than 70 screenings of horror, true crime, and heavy metal films, music videos, and more — and special guest appearances from three of the world’s most revered underground directors of horror.

The Housecore Horror Film & Music Festival will take over the entire Emo’s complex in the newly revitalized area of Austin, Texas for three days at the end of October.

The nefarious brainchild of Anselmo and Mitchell, the Housecore Horror Film & Music Festival spawned from a mutual love for all things horror that was discovered while the two were collaborating on Anselmo‘s upcoming autobiography (Simon & Schuster, 2014). Wanting to bring their passion for — and knowledge of — extreme music and horror films to legions of fans, Housecore Horror Film & Music Festival was born, with the goal of showcasing the best in a wide range of horror films — from the obscure to the extreme, from quality mainstream to the most unrepentant gore — and the heavy music that goes hand-in-hand with it.

Sharni Vinson looking a bit worse for wear in ‘You’re Next’, out now

We bloody love a good horror film, and as it happens, new slasher flick You’re Next is one of the best to be released this year. We heard lead star Sharni Vinson was a bit of a metalhead, so we grabbed her for a quick chat to see what was up.

Hi, Sharni! So, what’s You’re Next all about, then?

“It’s really interesting, because we were all really wondering how Lionsgate were going to produce the trailer for this movie, because they’ve kept it the most generic, in the sense that all you know from watching the trailer is that it’s a home invasion movie. But, the thing that’s cool about that is that the movie is nothing like the trailer in the sense of what to expect. The first little bit of it is more ‘home invasion’, and then about halfway through, the audience realise that it’s turned the tables in a way that they didn’t see coming.”

Are horror directors having to think outside the box a bit more?

“You’ve got to be able to think outside the box, and you can;t be too scared to go with a completely different style. People like to be scared; we’re after an experience when we go to watch a movie, and when you go to see a horror, you’re after being scared. So, if you’ve seen so many horror movies that the scares become predictable, that’s where it’s not good. So you need unpredictability. It’s got to be shocking. And that’s what’s really good about You’re Next.”

Are you a big horror fan?

“Really, really obsessively, from the age of six years old. My mum would let me watch them because I was never affected with nightmares or anything. When I was in a video store, I would go straight into the horror section, be it Stephen King’s ItA Nightmare On Elm StreetPet Cemetary… I just wanted that experience.”

High fiv-actually we’re good mate

Awesome! Anyhow, on to the important stuff: how metal are you?

“I know a little bit! You know why? I worked on [not-quite-as-good-as-Neighbours-Aussie-soap] Home And Away for three years opposite Mark Furze, and he is obsessed with death metal bands. He only wore death metal shirts, and that is all I’d see on him coming in, with his headphones on as loud as possible. ”

What a LAD.

“That was the music he would listen to to relax! And he’d play it in my car, and all of a sudden I’m listening to death metal and thinking, ‘This is awesome’. You’ve got to get into anything to experience. You can’t judge something from an outside perspective. Then I started becoming obsessed with Linkin Park.”

Ah, of cour-wait, what?!

“I was really obsessed with them and went to one of their private concerts in Hollywood, with just 200 people. It was really small, and I’d listen to their album every day for about two years after that. It changed my experience of music.”

Fair enough! Who are the five most metal horror heroines ever?

“It’s so hard! Well my character, Erin. And Jamie Lee Curtis had to go through about five Halloween movies. Then there’s Neve Campbell hanging through all the Scream movies. Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil kicks ass, too. And Jodie Foster in Silence Of The Lambs!”

You’re Next is out nationally this week. Go see it!
