PostSubject: Slipknot   Thu Jun 10, 2010 10:59 pm

Now, I figure most of you will be thinking this is the official "lets hate on slipknot" page, well it's not. You may post your opinions about disliking them if you want. As I am not a HUGE fan. But I wanted to post this and say what I do like about Slipknot.

I really admire their stage showing, they show heart and a lot of energy. Which is very important to me. Joey is a beast on drums, Mick is a good guitar player, his solos need a shit load of work though. I like a handful of songs. I use to enjoy all of Iowa (the Album) but after listening to it again, I am not as big of a fan. I listened to All Hope is Gone again, and I find it is actually stronger than I thought, and I've grown to like more off of it. The songs i enjoy are ;
"Wait and Bleed"
"People = Shit
"The Heretic Anthem"
"Iowa" 1st Favourite Song
"My Plague"
"Duality"
"Pulse of the Maggots" 3rd favourite song
"Before I Forget"
"Snuff"
"All Hope Is Gone" 2nd Favourite song
"Gematria (The Killing Name)"
"Sulfur"

I also enjoyed their Album work for "Iowa" and "All Hope is Gone"

I agree with everything you've said Steven. I also admire the skill it must take to have all 9 (now Cool people playing at the same time and keep time and play everything right. I do like a lot more of their songs than you guys do. So I won't bother posting the huge list. My favorite albums are probably also 'Iowa' and 'All Hope is Gone'. I love the direction they took with AHiG, and there's way more skill and melody in it than their other efforts.

I suppose when you have as many members as Slipknot, it doesn't matter all to much when one dies.


I don't like Slipknot, but you'd probably get pissed at me if I called them Nu Metal so I'll just leave it at that. xD

Slipknot's first album and somewhat the second one were indeed pretty much nu metal. I don't think anyone would argue it Razz

Yeah, I've never really got the Nu Metal=Slipknot shit.

Sure they have a couple songs that are like it, but overall, they aren't that bad.

I like the old stuff better, overall though. Like most bands, the catalog got weaker and weaker, IMO.

Honestly the big 3 bands that offend get labeled as "nu-metal" is wrong, sure KoRn has a few nu-metal style songs, sure System has a few, and Slipknot has a few. But honestly I don't believe any of them are Nu-metal base... I mean KoRn's first album was heavy, and had more groove elements than nu.

Yeah, Limp Bizkit is sort of Nu-Metal. That's the most Nu-Metal thing I can think of.

But it's wrong when you think about it. Cause then bands like Lamb of God, DevilDriver, The Black Dahlia Murder, etc. would be labeled as nu metal. Which, would make a lot of people go "WHAT THE FUUUUUUCCKK".

It's just mainstream media being lazy fucks. Or ignorant fans who choose not to actually listen to the style of the bands who are labeled as nu-metal.

Yeah, it's almost as stupid as when the pop-prep faggots call metal as a whole Screamo.

o i heard worse...kids around where i live label metal heads as metallica...

i heard it to the kid was talking to some friends and he said u r either a metallica or ur a gangster..and that was frustrating cause the thought of the young crowd seeing us as metallica pisses me off greatly

idk what u guys think
