Stone Sour is a side-project bands for Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Jim Root and tonight they would take the stage of a sold out Roseland Ballroom. The show featured Lacuna Coil, Til December and Shadow’s Fall as well but we were only able to snare photos of the main band performing for some reason tonight based on sudden last minute “restrictions” at the venue.

While it’s true that Slipknot and their unique style of Metal meets uncontrolled chaos is not for everyone, it also seems true that two of its members have found a way to reach new acolytes with an entirely different band – introducing Stone Sour. The band Stone Sour was actually formed as far back as 1992 by singer Corey Taylor and would eventually feature guitarist Jim Root (who both went on to work together in Slipknot). The band mixes great Hard Rock riffing alongside the more modern Alternative scene and the resulting mix is a lot more refreshing than some of the other bands who claim the Alt-Rock title of today. I wasn’t sure I was hitting this show until the last minute and was glad to be able to do so since it was also going to feature Lacuna Coil, Shadow’s Fall and some newcomers Til December. The scene of the spectacle would be the Roseland Ballroom in NYC, and this venue has not had enough Metal and Rock shows of late so it was nice to see it back at this course of action. As my eyes glanced around the venue, it seemed to be a really solid crowd early on. Granted it wasn’t the massive humanity fest that I found immediately at the Lamb Of God show we recently covered, but the space would fill in as the night got later and the time for Stone Sour drew near. The entire concert tour was another showcase of The Jagermeister Music Tour, a tour that I attended several times when Slayer was headlining the event. It’s really nice to see the changeup to keep things fresh and interesting.
