    That's ridiculous. Vol. 3 is probably one of the best metal records of all time as far as lyrics go. Vol.3 and all hope is gone are lyrical masterpieces.

    Let's remember how there's a rule about respecting each other's musical tastes...

    Can we just discuss the band and music? If you don't like them, feel free to say so and why and we'll all discuss. If you do like them, awesome, let's talk about it. No need for this thread to become full of attacks against each other for no good reason.

    The next person to say anything disrespectful about anyone's taste in music or say anything that will purposely kick off an argument will recieve an infraction. You've all been warned so I suggest if you don't have anything to add to this thread relating to the topic then don't bother posting anything.

    As for me, Slipknot are one of my favourite bands. Their live show is literally one of the most intense and amazing experiences you'll ever witness. Their dedication to the show is second to none and I don't think any other band out their puts anywhere near as much energy into their live act as they do.

    Screaming is not my thing. I don't consider it an art form nor music. And they sound the same to me like a banshee about to die. I love melodic singing and enjoy the Slipknot songs where the vocalist actually uses his voice to sing. There is a quality in his voice that i like. As a drive-by listener, i have fun with them.:cool:

    I actually agree with whoever said: Guitar -> Useless scream -> Useless scream -> Useless scream -> Useless scream -> End

    They are a bunch of clowns! One of them actually dresses like a clown... I listened to like 10 songs by them and I hated every single one of them from the bottom of my heart.

    This made me laugh solely because yes, one of the members is actually a clown.

    Slipknot has been one of my favorite bands since "Iowa" came out and I was like 6! Besides that, they have some really good albums. "Slipknot", "Iowa", "Vol. 3", and "All Hope is Gone" are fucking kick ass! Joey Jordison makes me wanna quit drumming cause he's very talented. I'm definitely seeing them live sometime in the future.

    It's pathetic seeing all this bashing of other people's musical opinions. If you don't like this band, great but if you have to make a smartass comment every post, you obviously are just making an ass out of yourself. Sorry if my grammer sucks.

    I've felt the hate rise up in me, kneel down and clear the stone of leaves. I wander out where you can't see, inside my shell I wait and bleed.

    ^nothing wrong with that if you ask me.

    Slipknot is awesome. When I was like 14 I used to hate them even if I have never really listened to them. My best friend was a fan and I used to tell him "It's barbarian screamings, it's not music trololol". Then some years later I listened to it without any preconceived stereotyps. I'm a fan since then. The screamings associated with the instrumental give tat f*cking brutal feel, some might hate that, but for me it works perfectly.

    But the dudes in the band arez sometimes weird. Like I remember reading something about Corey Taylor recording the last track on Iowa while being nacked, vomiting over himself, and doing other weird psycho stuff. I guess it was to be in the right mood....:lol:

    Corey Taylor is widely considered (see: 'widely', not 'unanimously' one of the best modern frontmen in rock/metal. Any suggestion that he can't sing/carry a melody/stay in key shows a pretty poor understanding of music. Dislike him, that's fine, but you cannot say he can't sing.


    Also. Listen to Snuff and tell me he can't write lyrics.

    Their live shows are the most energetic I have ever seen from any band. They're completely nuts, and it's damn impressive to watch them still lose their shit and bring it after over 13 years of doing it. They put on a damn good show, and I can't wait to see them on Mayhem Fest in a week.
