Slipknot on their longevity and success: 'It really infuriates people'

Metal band Slipknot have enjoyed an incredibly successful career to date, with a total of five studio albums under their collective belt and numerous world tours to boot, but they are very aware that their continued success "infuriates" some people. 

Chatting to the Alternative Press this week, Taylor explained that most people believed Slipknot "would turn into just a gimmick band that really just rested on its visuals."

He confessed that "people forgot just how talented we fucking were," and admitted that people are so irked by the band's longevity, but they earned it through their innovation and creativity:

"Every album we put out is a reminder of that and it really pisses people off. Just when they think they have us flushed down the toilet, we come back and we reinvent everything. It really infuriates people."
