Stone Sour is a Grammy nominated hard rock group formed and led by Slipknot singer Corey Taylor. The band first released their debut album Stone Sour in 2002, since then they have released two other studio albums Come What(ever) May in 2006 and most recently in 2010 Audio Secrecy ( Stone Sour Website). The band is currently signed with Roadrunner Reccords.
Although maybe not as popular as Slipknot, Stone Sour consistently produces more thoughtful material in my opinion and is well known for the singles Inhale , Bother , Through the Glass and Say you’ll Haunt me . The rock group has also had fairly successful album sales and rankings they’re highest ranking album was Come What(Ever) May which made peaked at number four on the billboard 200 (Billboard.com). In addition to this the band has received three Grammy nominations and their first two albums were certified gold (Answers.com)
Stone Sour has sort of a unique blend of music and is not genre limited. They have proven that they can successfully perform metal or slower ballads and still earn high marks for they’re sound. The first album contained many heavy songs but the newest album slows things down a little but still contains heavier songs like Mission Statement .
Following the release of Audio Secrecy the band joined Disturbed and Avenged Sevenfold on the Rockstar Uproar Festival (Uproar Festival). Some other recent activity of the bands is releasing music video for the single Say You’ll Haunt Me. A music video was also made for the song Digital (Did You Tell) which can be viewed on the bands website (Stone Sour Website Video ).
