Listen To A Young Corey Taylor Doing Guest Vocals On This Lost Nu-Metal Track

A 1998 track by Iowa’s Smakdab has surfaced, featuring guest vocals by a young Corey Taylor.

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.

More information about Smakdab can be found at — oh, hell yes — their MySpace page.
