Slipknot’s Corey Taylor is set to guest star in Doctor Who this weekend (Saturday 3rd October), with his scream used for an alien warlord called Fisher King.
“Production got in touch with Slipknot because they heard Corey and the band love the show,” an “insider” told the Mirror.
“They gave them a VIP tour and asked if Corey wanted to record his famous scream. He agreed instantly and was made up about it.”
Fisher King will be played by the tallest man in the European Union, Neil Fingleton who’s 7ft 7”. His speaking voice will come from Peter Serafinowicz.
Slipknot’s fifth album, ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’ was released in 2014. It was their first not to feature late founding bassist Paul Gray, and long time drummer Joey Jordison.
