If Slipknot’s Corey Taylor does decide to leave the country, he might have a cushy gig waiting at the BBC. The metal vocalist is featured in an upcoming episode of Doctor Who.

Well, kinda. Taylor’s voice is being used for a villain known as The Fisher King in an episode that airs this Saturday (October 3). Taylor, who is a massive fan of the long-running sci-fi series, visited the set earlier this year after producers learned of his fandom. While he was there, they had him record a monstrous scream for the King.

“You have NO idea how hard it’s been to keep this awesome secret…” Taylor tweeted once word of his cameo got out.

We can’t confirm the rumor that Taylor produced the scream by “sticking the Sonic Screwdriver into his eyeeeeeees.”

Taylor recently made headlines for calling out Kanye West after the rapper called himself the world’s “greatest living rock star.”

“Kanye, you are not — not — the greatest living rock star of all-time. The fact that you had to tell people that kind of says it all. You remind of the guy who brags about pussy. They never get as much as they brag about. Stop it. Stop it!”
