Product Overview

"The intensity. The drama. The emotion. The colors. The darkness. The melodies. The anger. The honesty. The drive. The new. All of the above and more." According to Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor, those are the things that define Stone Sour's passionately pulsing second album, Come What(ever) May (Roadrunner). Stone Sour's first album in four years finds the band firing on all cylinders, and primed to capture the attention and the hearts of the rock 'n roll masses.

Guitarist Jim Root, who contends that "life" itself influenced this album and who claims he consumed nerve-shattering, tooth-staining amounts of coffee during the recording process, sees Come What(ever) May as a necessary evolution in the band's sound. "We're taking every aspect to the next level. As an artist, no matter what you do, you must evolve. That's very important to me. Some people fear change. I embrace it. This record is a testament to where I am at, musically and spiritually. Life is a learning experience and so is song writing. As with everything I try to improve. I can sit back and listen to these songs and know that I have."

The songs and music on Come What(ever) May ensure that Stone Sour's legacy will endure for a long time to come.

Before joining Slipknot, guitarist Jim Root and vocalist Corey Taylor fronted Stone Sour, an alt-metal act with melodic sensibilities. The success of Slipknot inspired Root and Taylor to reform their original outfit, and the band's self-titled debut proved a success. Stone Sour's sound is reminiscent of Slipknot's, yet is distinctive enough to stand on its own merits.
COME WHAT(EVER) MAY, the group's sophomore effort, pushes Stone Sour's sound a bit further than its predecessor. While the album's sonic attack is still unremittingly heavy, with thunderous drums and distortion-saturated riffs, there's also a keen sense of accessibility that foregrounds melody and eschews thrash in favor of flat-out hard rock. These elements, combined with Taylor's throaty voice, place Stone Sour a cut above your average post-grunge metal outfit, and COME WHAT(EVER) MAY hints that the group may be poised for a mainstream breakthrough.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.159) - "[The album] serves its punishing riffs with a heaping side of heartfelt melody....This combination creates moments of genuine catharsis."
Alternative Press (p.224) - "[The album] builds on their debut's strengths, allowing frontman Corey Taylor to drop his mask in more ways than one."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.50) - "Captured live giving it to the audience with both barrels, it's a smashing glimpse of just how potent SS are onstage."
Artist Bio
Stone SourStone Sour's self-titled debut was twice Grammy-nominated and RIAA Certified Gold. It was an eclectic album, propelled by the band's busy tour schedule, the contemplative smash single "Bother," and a series of groovy, melodic metal numbers. In 2002 and 2003, Stone Sour established itself as a multi-faceted hard rock force of nature.While Taylor is one of the most recognized figures in rock music, thanks to his role as the frontman for Slipknot, a Grammy winning, multi-platinum act, Stone Sour is anything but a side project. It's a full-time band that all members are fiercely dedicated to. Taylor spent much of 2004 and 2005 supporting his other band, but will spend 2006 and 2007 focusing on Stone Sour and Come What(ever) May. Also comprised by guitarist James Root, who does double duty in Slipknot, bassist Shawn Economaki, guitarist Josh Rand and new drummer Roy Mayorga, Stone Sour is armed with an album that expands beyond the palette of its predecessor. The band was afforded more time to craft songs, and it shows. The album, produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver), is tight, crisp, and full of rowdy rockers and melodic numbers."With Stone Sour, I loosen up and show more of myself," Taylor reveals. "As soon as the fans hear this new record, they'll see it's different than anything that we have ever done. It gives me a chance to do the singing that I love to do, the type of singing that I do when I'm walking around my house." Taylor, a self-described extrovert, may be the mouthpiece for Stone Sour, but he insists the band is a truly collaborative effort, and that's something he thoroughly enjoys. "I've been able to blend into the background if needed, you know? You grow up thinking being recognized all the time will be sweet, but sometimes you just want to be one of the guys. I think I balance it fairly well, without killing people."
