FACECAGE, the Iowa-based metal act whose latest CD, "Facecage III", was produced by SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor, has uploaded two more tracks from the album at their official web site. Check out the songs "The Rebirth" and "Please" at www.facecage.net.
FACECAGE is described by Taylor as containing "the heaviness of SEPULTURA, the groove of [BLACK] SABBATH, the dark melodies of the Midwest and the drive of one hundred bands from either coast." Said Taylor of the band, "I've seen them work very hard, go through various changes, pay their dues and become a great band over the years. I'm very proud of them. Success doesn't come without sweat."
Corey Taylor and FACECAGE have joined forces to form a new Midwest-based record label, dubbed Great Big Mouth Records. The label has just released "Facecage III", which was recorded in Taylor's hometown of Des Moines, Iowa thoughout the fall and winter of 2005.
When asked about the final product, Taylor commented: "I think it's the perfect result of a tremendous band’s evolution from being in the basement with dreams to expanding, learning and honing their craft as an organic musical entity. In layman's terms, they kick ass like never before on this album." Taylor added, "There are so many great moments on this album that it's hard to pick out a single track. 'Weakness Inside You' has that epic feeling from top to bottom, 'Drill Bits' makes you want to drive your car into a fucking wall, and let's not even DISCUSS what 'Nothing But Contempt' makes me want to do!"
