Corey Taylor features in Doctor Who behind-the-scenes video

The Fisher King Doctor Who

The BBC have released a behind-the-scenes clip of Slipknot’s Corey Taylor on the set of Doctor Who.

Taylor was invited by the BBC to record vocals for the Fisher King, a character who appears in the current series of the long-running sci-fi show.

A self-confessed Doctor Who fan, Taylor reveals that being a part of the Who-niverse was a dream come true, also sharing that his favourite Doctor was that played by Tom Baker.

“I’ve been a fan since I can remember. I’ve passed that on to my son. Now we have that in common, so it’s a pretty good feeling,” says the Slipknot vocalist.

“I got to be a total fanboy for a good amount of the day. I got to see the Tardis and all kinds of other stuff behind the scenes. And then being able to flick all the buttons, it was just so rad.

“To be able to see everything that goes on in that ship, the way I’ve always imagined it as a fan is just ridiculous.”

Taylor adds of his vocal performance on the show: “I’ve been doing some vocal stuff for the Fisher King, basically a harsh scream that I incorporate with Slipknot. We’ve been recording different tones and different levels of it to incorporate into the Fisher King’s guttural roar.

“They’ll probably use that and blend it with a few other things to make it completely inhuman and dark. You may think that’s not a compliment, but I kind of love that.”

Slipknot continue to tour in support of their most recent album, 5.The Gray Chapter, and will return to the UK for a series of live shows next February.
