SLIPKNOT self titled Slipknot LP NEW SEALED vinyl | eBay
Haven't got to the core of it just yet, but I'm loving the new album so far - I think I can already say that it's their 4th best release...it may well go higher. And with the new Korn album being great too, well, it's been a pretty heavy couple of weeks round mine...
I have their debut (digipak), bought in 1999. Never listened to it much and I prefer Pantera.
Anyone compared We Are Not Your Kind vinyl straight to digital versions? Friend of mine was very impressed with the album (being Stone Sour fan) and got the LP yesterday. To his ears first disk felt like it was cut from a different master and the 2nd disk was pretty close to what he got used to while listening to the digital 24/96. Anyone could relate to that?
Hmm, I'm not sure - I only have the CD.
BUT (to my ears at least) it sounds pretty darn good. Ludwig mastering. It's loud - but that suits the music. Also, it's not overly compressed - certainly not a hardship on the old ears.
Wow, I'd love to hear that. The CD sounds good, probably not as good as the vinyl from what you say, though.
Saw them live in London on Saturday night at the O2. Packed to the rafters which for a band playing music like this is some achievement. They put on an utterly fabulous show, probably the most intense performance I have ever witnessed. Sound was so loud it seemed to punch holes in your guts and the crowd were going mad from start to finish. Managed to acquire Tortilla Mans drumstick as well. Fabulous night.
I really hope they release a live blu of this tour. They really bring the spectacle.
live at BBC Studios, never seen them in a somewhat intimate setting
If I have to choose one album, it would be Volume 3
Too many to mention.
The one from All Hope Is Gone era.
My favorite member is Jim Root. Never seen a metal guitarist plays a Jazzmaster before! Super cool.
Entire set from last year's Download fest
hour long BBC Radio 1 doc on them
I'm a regular at Download, so glad they caught the audio for this so well and have released it, gives me something to watch to cheer me up knowing it's cancelled this year. Was a great set - they seem to love that fest.
Could someone recommend album titles and/or a track list that is “clean,” for my 13-year-old to listen to? I just played “Psychosocial” and kinda liked it myself.
If by clean you mean no swear words, you won't find an album that's entirely clean unless you have an edited one.
Songs worth looking into that are similar to Psychosocial (by that I mean more "radio friendly" and popular) and clean:
- Wait and Bleed
- Left Behind
Volume 3 (The subliminal Verses)
- Before I forget
- Vermillion (parts 1 and 2)
All Hope is Gone
- Dead Memories
.5: The Gray Chapter
- The Devil and I
I'd also add We Are Not Your Kind's Unsainted to this list, but there's a couple of swears (though you might not be able to hear them).
NOTE: This is not an exhaustive list of non-swearing Slipknot songs, just the songs that are more popular, don't have swears, and are "softer" and more radio friendly. You could create a nice playlist from these songs plus Psychosocial to get started.
Perfect! Thank you. Solved!
As far as language goes, I know Vol 3 is mostly clean, particularly since according to Mick Thomson (one of the guitar players who’s also known for being brutally honest), Corey made it a point to use as little profanity as possible to show he didn’t rely on it.
Besides that, musically, that’s when they started using more melody in their music, or at least more prominent melody.
On Apple Music they list “E” on the songs with swearing. It doesn’t leave much.
Thank you, Brenald79 and Zoot Marimba! Would be funny if my son turns me onto this band. He’s already prompted me to take a closer look at Roger Miller.
Here’s to Paul, who we lost ten years ago today. Rest In Peace, nothing’s been the same without you.
An early track called “Do Nothing/Bitchslap”, which features some surprisingly pretty ripping bass playing by Paul.
