So check back right here often. Below, Oh, Sleeper vocalist Micah Kinard talks about his favorite Slipknot song:
"'Eyeless' was the first Slipknot song I ever heard. I listened to it on my friend's walkman CD player in the cafeteria of my high school in 2001 and it got me so pumped/terrified that I almost stabbed the lunch lady in the eye with my spork. Almost. Slipknot was the band that really ushered me into screaming metal music. After hearing 'Eyeless,' I delved into the entire [self-titled] album and, to this day, am inspired by the way the band is able to capture such raw energy and terrifying atmospheres with such consistency throughout their career. Corey Taylor's vocal performances inspire me to step up my game every time I approach the mic whether onstage or in the studio. Corey, you are a madman, and I absolutely love it."
