Words are weapons for COREY TAYLOR and his first book, Seven Deadly Sins, expands that arsenal further. Releasing via Da Capo Press on 12 July 2011, Seven Deadly Sins goes for the jugular from the very first page. The Grammy winning, multi-platinum SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman confronts the idea of sin head-on with no pretense and no bullshit. He proposes that the “Seven Deadly Sins” aren’t really sins at all. They’re in fact traits of humanity intrinsic to every sentient being on this planet. Fearlessly, he analyzes the meaning of sin, and he illuminates what the true sins are. Corey gets personal in the process, revealing his own experiences with sin via hilarious and heart-wrenching vignettes into his youth and career. Seven Deadly Sins flows with a funny, fiery prose that’ll make you think and smile. You might get burned in the process, but it’s all part of the fun.

You can read an extract from Corey’s Seven Deadly Sins by purchasing a copy of today’s Kerrang!, which includes a few chapters of the book for free! GO! GO! GO!
