Listen To A Young Corey Taylor Doing Guest Vocals On This Lost Nu-Metal Track
You’re probably not familiar with the works of Iowa’s Smakdab, a nu-metal band from the late ’90s. But the boys over at MetalSucks have now dug up a forgotten Smakdab gem that will grab your attention — because it features guest vocals by Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor.
The track, titled Shadowed, is very much a byproduct of the time — it has crunchy bass, lilting female vocals, and big misanthropic riffs. Without knowing that Taylor is involved, one might assume it were any Snot- or Crisis-inspired track from 1998… but once you hear Corey in there, you can’t hear those male vocals as anything else.

Though some festival-goers booed and flipped-off MGK at Louder Than Life, he says that “all I saw was 20,000 amazing fans at the festival singing every word and 20 angry ones”.
Watch the video for IDLES’ new single The Beachland Ballroom – the “most important song” on their upcoming album Crawler, according to vocalist Joe Talbot.
