Additionally, the band has released one live album, 9.0: Live, one compilation album, Antennas to Hell, as well as four live DVDs.

Album:

The 'Knot's sixth album is an astonishing record: a roaring, horrifying delve into the guts of the band’s revulsion, a primal scream of endlessly inventive extreme metal and searing misanthropy.You look at that 1999 image of Slipknot, boiler-suited, clad in cheap, nasty horror movie masks, crowded together in a playground, the bleached-out bright weather eerily at odds with their back alley menace, and it’s hard not to be moved by the distance they’ve travelled. A bunch of hicks from Iowa, social misfits who only made sense to themselves once they adopted monikers and numbers, made some of the most uncompromising music imaginable and became one of the biggest bands in the world. It’s so unlikely, and so brilliant.Of course, some of the men behind the masks in that picture aren’t even on the sixth Slipknot album, ‘We Are Not Your Kind’, the title taken from standalone single ‘All Out Of Life’, released last year. Iconic drummer Joey Jordison (#1) and phallic-appendaged Dicknose (#3) have sadly since left. It’s amazing that Slipknot have retained that early menace despite motor-mouthed frontman Corey Taylor having become an affable celebrity, his band the kind of behemoth whose recent single ‘Unsainted’ racked up 4.7 million YouTube views in a day.Yet Slipknot have always been dogged by heartache: founding bassist Paul Gray suffered a fatal overdose in 2010 and, appallingly, Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan’s 22-year-old daughter Gabrielle passed away earlier this year. Slipknot transmogrify pain, give it a face, take universal experiences of loss and disgust at life and help to turn them into something that makes some kind of twisted sense. ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ is an astonishing record, a roaring, horrifying delve into the guts of the band’s revulsion, a primal scream of endlessly inventive extreme metal and searing misanthropy. It opens with ‘Insert Coin’, a one-minute-and-39-second soundscape that resembles a machine being gradually cranked up. “I’m counting all the killers,” Taylor warns.And then we’re off. ‘Unsainted’ is one of the greatest things Slipknot have ever done, with its school nativity choir sawn in half when Taylor roars, “I’m finally holding on to letting go”, before he insists, “I’m just weathering a rough patch”. Like the band’s 2004 masterwork ‘Duality’, the track combines a gothic-pop chorus with a kick-drum verse that sounds like a series of sharp implements bouncing from a stab-proof vest. On ‘Birth Of The Cruel’, a drone-like verse gives way to a claustrophobic and taut refrain whose lyrics – “We are the bitter, the maladjusted” – suggests that Slipknot 2019 has much in common with Slipknot 1999.‘Red Flag’ is quintessential maggot-bait, a four-minute fuck-you“(You don’t know me / You can’t hold me”), punctuated with building, squealing siren sounds, sure to become a live favourite. ‘Nero Forte’ and latest single ‘Solway Firth’ are, similarly, a perfection of the band’s unstoppable, mechanical style. Yet it’s often the quieter moments of ‘We Are Not Your Kind’ that prove the most compelling. ‘Death Because Of Death’, clocking in at 38 seconds, is a burbling sound collage which combines bleeps and blips with the kind of lolloping, lumbering percussion that evokes thoughts of Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: it’s slow and it’s unsophisticated, and it’s coming to destroy you anyway.The hushed interlude to ‘Critical Darling’ is unsettling, too, crunching sound effects like an old computer connecting to the internet weaving around Taylor’s voice as he simpers, “Darling, you’re so critical,” before the song takes off again into a clattering blast of punishment. Perhaps the most nightmarish track here is the tellingly titled ‘My Pain’, a nursery rhyme of atonal keys, glockenspiel and the word “Love” chanted over and over in the background.It’s Slipknot at their artiest, an implicit riposte to detractors who would write them off as eternally adolescent shock-rockers that bang bins and shout at lot (although, thankfully, there’s also a massive amount of that on the album). ‘Spiders’ earns its title in a similar fashion, a spindly piano melody creeping through the track as Taylor confesses that “everyone’s a little bitter.” He’s implied this is the band’s political record, a response to a globally divisive climate characterised by Trump’s America, and indeed on ‘Birth Of The Cruel’ he warns with snarl, “We’re all dressed up with nobody to kill / The rhetoric stops tonight.”It’s a tantalising concept, given that Slipknot hail from a red state, but only half-true as they’ve always stood apart from the world at large. That’s why the album’s title is so inspired: a reference to the President’s apparent mistrust of anyone who doesn’t look like him, it’s also a testament to the band’s outlier status, as they align themselves with the outsider (and against the bigots). Crahan recently claimed that 18 songs failed to make the cut on ‘We Are Not Your Kind’, an indication of how much gasoline flows through the Slipknot machine in 2019.Hell, that soon-to-be-iconic title hails from a song that wasn’t even included on the record. 20 years on from their debut proper – and from that chilling photo of them in the playground – Slipknot have somehow remained true to their core as everything around them (and even their line-up) has changed. Ironically, this is the same band that appeared in that photo, more experienced, equally effective and similarly drunk on rage, self-disgust and lacerating, redemptive nihilism. As Taylor sneered on 2001 classic ‘People = Shit’: “Here we go again, motherfuckers.”

Bio:

Slipknot is an American heavy metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. Formed in September 1995, the group was founded by percussionist Shawn Crahan and bassist Paul Gray. After several lineup changes in their early days, the band consisted of nine members for the greater part of their tenure: Sid Wilson, Joey Jordison, Paul Gray, Chris Fehn, Jim Root, Craig Jones, Shawn Crahan, Mick Thomson, and Corey Taylor. However, the death of Paul Gray on May 24, 2010 and the departure of Joey Jordison on December 12, 2013, left the band with seven remaining members.Slipknot is well known for its attention-grabbing image, aggressive music style, and energetic and chaotic live shows.The band enjoyed a somewhat meteoric rise to success following the release of their self-titled debut album in 1999. The 2001 follow-up album Iowa further increased the band's popularity.

Additionally, the band has released one live album, 9.0: Live, one compilation album, Antennas to Hell, as well as four live DVDs.

Album:

The End, So Far is the seventh studio album by American heavy metal band Slipknot. It was released on September 30, 2022, through Roadrunner Records.This is the band's final album to be released through Roadrunner, whom the band signed with in 1998.What a time to be alive with Slipknot in their legacy era. Many scoffed when nine masked maniacs from Iowa charged into the Ozzfest circuit, but they've proven their critics wrong and become one of the most influential metal bands of the past 20 years. Some mainstream crossovers have overshadowed their ability to sneak extreme metal hallmarks into the mainstream on a nu metal Trojan Horse, but Slipknot is nothing if not persistent. Even after losing their founding drummer Joey Jordison and bassist Paul Gray (may they both rest in power), and later dishonorably discharging percussionist Chris Fehn, The Gray Chapter and We are Not Your Kind proved that the band's story is far from over. Indeed, perseverance remains heavily implied on Slipknot's seventh album The End, So Far.The End, So Far was succinctly described by vocalist Corey Taylor described as a "heavier version of [Vol. 3] The Subliminal Verses." Harking back to that 2004 album cycle recalls a lot of experimentation—a band testing the limits of their sound. While some of The End, So Far plays it safe by Vol. 3 standards, the album still concludes Slipknot's 24-year run on Roadrunner Records with a bang.It's not a Slipknot album without a weird intro, this time through the plodding pianos, mid-tempo rock beat and bouncing bass lines of "Adderall." If not for Taylor's singing voice, the song's swirling electro-acoustic ambiance wouldn't sound out of place within the realms of goth or post-rock. It gives credence to The End, So Far's experimental quotient before "The Dying Song (Time to Sing)" returns to classic Iowan violence. While its overall vibe isn't particularly distinct compared to singles like "Negative One" and "Unsainted," a bass flourish from Alessandro Venturella here and an extended drum fill from Jay Weinberg there make it a worthy adrenaline shot after a song, slow beginning.The only shame about "The Dying Song" is that "The Chapeltown Rag" one-ups it in every way, other than their comparably enjoyable choruses. A creative narrative connects religious oppression to the demented mind of serial killer Peter Sutcliffe, driving the song from DJ Sid Wilson's frenetic breakcore intro ("Eyeless," anyone?), to a devastating final act of rapcore steez and sludgy slow-downs. Slipknot punctuates its crowd-pleasing quarter note hammering with blast-beats and tremolo riffs, and it really sounds like all nine members had a hand in making the song complete.This carries over to the moody slow-burner "Yen," which functions nicely as The End, So Far's "Vermillion." Its sensual melodies and bombastic dynamic changes come augmented by sampler Craig Jones' choice additions of marimba and atmospheric distortion. Taylor follows the song's arrangement with a wide vocal range, intuitively exploding into the hard-nosed breakdown and fading into dizzying double-kick-driven ambiance.Though it starts with Jim Root and Mick Thomson slathering off-kilter string bends and nervous tremolo on Weinberg's machine-gun blast beat, "Hivemind" quickly reverts to the trademark Slipknot "DOO. KAH. DOO. KAH." rhythm structure. While the track is plenty headbangeable, it's worth pointing out that every track from Vol 3, good or bad, feels very different from the others. It's not necessarily a bad thing that the song's mosh part obviously recalls "Sulfur" and "Unsainted," but a cut like "Medicine for the Dead" stands out more than a third "DOO. KAH." routine. "Medicine" breaks new ground with a bizarre waltz feel, opening doors to fresh guitar voicings for Taylor to sing over. At over six-minutes, the track sports ideas worth marinating in, as well as exploding outward with some of Taylor's more expressive melodies.Amid the battering low-end attack and chaotic screams of "Warranty", Root and Thomson take the intense beat changes by the horns with an uncommon ability to play riffs both bestial and tasteful. This allows the quasi-operatic bridge section to feel as natural as it is unexpected, making up for a lesser attempt at "Heretic Anthem"-style crowd shout call-and-response. "Warranty" also offers more openings for percussionists Shawn Crahan and Michael Pfaff to up the ante with their auxiliary snares, kettle drums and kegs. This sentiment is shared with "H377," showing that Slipknot can bring the heaviness without sounding derivative. Beyond the bombshell drumming and repeatable riffs, the song actually contains one of the band's better on-melodic choruses—memorable and aggressive.Luckily, some less brutal tracks like "Acidic" carry extra layers to separate them from Taylor's more accessible band Stone Sour. Slipknot elevates this crooning side with industrial horror soundscapes, to a tension-filled dirge of dissonant guitar strains, vocoded manipulations and some surprisingly pronounced bass lines and percussive ornamentations. It's actually impressive that Taylor can extract hooks from these unorthodox sonics, whereas "Heirloom" gets too close to a "hell yeah brother" butt rock vibe for comfort. Some of the barrel-chested riffs are fun, but overall, it doesn't find Slipknot putting their stamp on calmer waters.The End, So Far isn't Slipknot longest album, but its concluding duology begs the question of why it needed to be almost an hour long. "De Sade" feels like the logical end of the album, complete with bittersweet modulations, cathartic mood-swings and passionately ascending melodicism. It even has the album's best guitar solo, so "Finale" hardly lives up to its name. It's like concluding All Hope Is Gone with the b-side "Till We Die"—not to mention that on-the-nose "we're still around" lyrical mantra. Like, yeah, it's no surprise that Slipknot "likes it here." It feels too self-aware for the more cryptic imagery that defines much of the album.That said, The End, So Far is miles away from a throw away album to get out of the Roadrunner contract. It contains plenty of powerful moments, and successfully breaks new ground for Slipknot 27 years into their career. Now that they can pave their own path, here's to hoping they take more chances than ever before.
