Slipknot Chris Fehn: 'I Think We're Going To Overtake Metallica'
Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn has high hopes for the band's future. "I think we're going to overtake Metallica," Fehn told KansasCity.com in a recent interview. "We're going to overtake any band that sells out soccer arenas in Europe. We're going to do it. We're the last chance as far as the world goes." "They (fans) keep showing up, and it's getting better and better every year," Fehn said. And musically, he thinks Slipknot has yet to peak. "We haven't even made our 'Black' record yet," Fehn said, referring to the 1991 "Metallica" CD that made Metallica the undisputed kings of the heavy metal scene. "Wait until we do that. It's over, dude." Regarding Slipknot's upcoming headlining U.S. tour in support of the "All Hope Is Gone" CD, Fehn said, "It's kind of a surprise for now. But we're going to play some really original, like different kind of stuff. We've got a great set put together. We've got four records now, so we've got a lot to choose from."
