    "It's easy to live fast; it's harder to live," comments Corey Taylor in the stunning new Stone Sour single "Do Me a Favor".

    He also reveals that he's "an anti-everything man" and "a scab on the lips of the lord". His incisive commentary hits just as hard as Jim Root and Josh Rand's impeccable riffing and the stomping theatrical beats from Roy Mayorga's drum kit.

    The solo mid-song stands out as so melodic it's lyrical in its own right. On the first sliver of House of Gold and Bones Part 2, Stone Sour blast open the doors with the kind of righteous intensity and experimental swagger that legends are made of. Moments nod to Faith No More, but this is singularly Stone Sour. This is one of their best songs yet and the perfect prelude to the second part of House of Gold and Bones. Everything has been heightened enough to crush and make you think.

    It's easy to make music, but it's damn near impossible to make music this fucking good.

    Re-enter the House of Gold and Bones on April 9.
