Slipknot’s stage show was inspired by none other than Iron Maiden.

The band’s stage show for We Are Not Your Kind is what Slipknot always wanted to achieve according to frontman Corey Taylor. In a recent episode of BBC Radio 1’s “Rock Show with Daniel P. Carter,” Taylor shared how the concert rigs for their summer shows were inspired by Iron Maiden’s live shows.

“The show looks amazing,” Taylor said. “Not only is it interactive — there’s video, there’s fire — but the whole set looks like an industrial complex. This is our attempt to create some Iron Maiden stuff, which is something we’ve been trying to do for a while.”

“Honestly, it’s everything that we’ve wanted to do for years, and we just never had the budget, and we had also had a lot of people around us telling us we couldn’t do it,” he admitted.
