There was a time when news of a new Slipknot album made me excited but All Hope Is Gone kinda sounded like they were trying to be a harder Stone Sour. But who knows. I'm not as angry as I was in my late teens so my music preferences have changed. Dead Memories, Psychosocial, and Snuff were decent enough. I'll probably check it out as a curiousity.

I know I broke a Fark rule about liking a band that sold more than 5 albums, but I don't care. One of the best concerts I went to was Slipknot/System of a Down/Mudvayne/Rammstein so flame away, snobs.

Don't feel bad jaded, I am kind of in the same boat as well. I put Slipknot into my "guilty pleasures" music catagory these days. Good for the occasional car ride or working out.

Well anyone that doesn't like Rammstein shows... doesn't like fire.... so they aren't real people anyways.

Anyways I was disappointed by Slipknots last few outings but hopefully they'll pull a good song or two out of the album.

Pledge of Allegience Tour? I was there (in Dallas anyways) moshing my 15 year old brains out. Rammstein >>>>>>>>>> Everyone else. Showmanship-wise. The cyclone moshpit during Slipknot was the most fun I've ever had surrounded by sweaty men. All that being said, I haven't liked Slipknot since Subliminal Versus (and even then, I only liked maybe three songs off that album). Corey had said since the beginning that once the masks came off, Slipknot was done. Boy was he right. From that point forward, they became Stone Sourer. The days of the infamous "wall of sound" are long done. A single song off their debut self-titled has more hate, angst, and malice in it than the totality of every song they've produced since Corey reformed Stone Sour. It's just sad to see. That doesn't stop Slipknot and Iowa from getting regular play on my iTunes playlists, though. farkin' love those CDs, and I'll never stop listening to them.

Yea, same here. I'll put them sometimes if I need to get motivated but Iowa was once a CD that never left the stereo. Their last 2 albums had about 4 or 5 good songs but I'm older now and my tastes have changed. I'll check it out just out of habit but I'm more likely to throw on Stone Sour (or some music along those lines) now.

They put on one hell of a show. Just like Gwar, you get an actual show, not just a chance for the band to tear through their set and acknowledge the crowd once before they disappear into backstage. That show.....Rammstein had some GREAT pyrotechnics...Mudvayne/SOAD played their asses off....and Slipknot had the crowd so pumped they did four encores and had the entire floor of the Alamodome (I had to drive 4 hours from Houston to see them) jumping so much, Cory stopped the show once to tell us to calm down.

Are kids allowed to jump around and have pits at shows anymore or do they have to have a permission slip from their parents?

Yup. San Antonio though. Houston wasn't having a show but San Antonio was the only one I could make so we drove out. I still have the concert t-shirt from that show. We were hurting so bad (but in a good way) after walking out of that show, we wound up sleeping at some people's house that we had met. That show, Alice in Chains before Layne started fading away, and Pantera/White Zombie go down as some of the greatest shows I ever went to.

CSB:

I was living in Colorado when Ozzfest came around that Slipknot was headlining and it was the last show before the new Mile High Stadium opened. Slipknot came out and after about 5 songs, the crowd was just standing there. Cory stops and starts yelling at everyone, asking if everyone was on Valium. Then he went on to talk about how Texas crowds would scare the shiat out of him cause we were crazy and he thought someone would get killed.

It's not said, it's the nature of things for the most part.

Get angry, write.
Acquire fans who appreciate how 'real' you keep it.
Stay angry, write more. Acquire more fans.
Get successful, slowly get less angry.
Burn out on what used to motivate you, or just want to go elsewhere musically, start writing differently.
Get accused by fans of being sellouts.

Sure, there are exceptions to this, but that's generally how things go on some level.

I've heard that this is the exact reason why Maynard James Keenan hates playing in Texas.

/not sure if it's true, I just heard it through the grapevine
//Maynard's the shiat, though, so he's allowed to hate an entire state if he wants to

I just assumed that since a majority of the songs used in the self-titled album and Iowa were rewrites and edits of songs from Slipknot's pre-Corey, self-released CD (Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat.), that Corey just didn't have the chops to keep that kind of momentum going for long. But yes, that's true. All bands "sell-out" eventually. It's not the selling out part that bothers me. I stuck with Metallica for long after they "sold-out". It's when they completely go against the very formula that made them the band they are that I lose interest and move on. Slipknot did it with Subliminal Versus (good luck finding Joey Jordinson going absolutely apeshiat on a drumset on that CD, or any CD since), and Metallica did it with, IMHO, St. Anger. I was a loyal maggot up until the first power ballad. After that, Slipknot was all but dead to me. Mushroomhead hasn't faired much better, but instead of going soft, they just play really shiatty music now. Heard one of their newer singles on Pandora a few days ago and I couldn't believe it was even the same band.

Agree completely with this. Kinda hard to channel that kind of rage when Jeeves the butler keeps interrupting your song writing time to ask if the duvet needs dusting.

Plus, I just can't imagine keeping that much anger anyway. I used to be so angry that it was almost like an extra organ. Now? I just laugh at everything. At some point, what was fueling it goes away and you can't keep up the intensity. Plus, you should want to grow as an artist but it's really delicate changing your sound and keeping all your original fans.

If he hates playing here, that's news to me. When he formed A Perfect Circle, the tour him and Nine Inch Nails did started here. I was at that show. It was the night before the debut album came out so I was really curious what it would sound like. They come to Houston on every tour and the last time he was here, he was so sick they stopped the show early and cancelled the next few nights. So he doesn't hate our money at least. If he does hate us, it's probably because of our loud mouth religious zealots.

Everybody and their brother knows that Corey Taylor is sick and tired of splitting the money eight ways, and he's using Paul's death as his way to get out. I don't expect a new Slipknot record. Joey's been saying it for a while, and Corey promptly verbally biatch slapped him in the press. I get the feeling that those two aren't on the same page, and never will be. Oh, also...

Joey's career outside of Slipknot>...........>Corey's career outside of Slipknot. Joey is in demand, nobody really gives much of a shiat about Stone Sour.

That is the most men wearing black t-shirts I have ever seen.

Don't see a lot of black t-shirts outside here in Florida, New Orleans or the tropics. They gets hot in the sun.

I think it might be more specific to Dallas, but like I said, it's just a rumor.

Not really a slipknot fan, but Snuff is one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs I have ever heard.

I saw them as an opening act with Machine Head and Coal Chamber......was an amazing show...also saw them in 2002 as the headliners of Tattoo The Earth tour.
