Slipknot frontman to publish novel

By | Published on Wednesday 25 August 2010

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has written a novel, a humorous and dark story based on the seven deadly sins.

Entitled ‘Seven’, it follows two homicide detectives, the soon to retire William Somerset and new-on-the-team David Mills, as the track a serial killer who is murdering people in manners relating to the deadly sin he claims they are guilty of. No, not really, I don’t know what it’s about.

Here’s what Taylor says: “I just finished writing it, and it’s being edited right now. We’re hoping to get it out by the spring of next year. It’s about the seven deadly sins and my take on them and how I don’t think they’re sins at all. They’re human characteristics. They’re just human flaws and things that we all experience. I’m telling stories from my past and balancing humour with serious, dark stuff. I’m really excited about it”.
