Slipknot

Album Rank: Slipknot

Ever since Slipknot’s new album, We Are Not Your Kind came out, I’ve been hooked on it. We Are Not Your Kind is one hell of an album. In my opinion it’s the best album they’ve released since Volume 3: The Subliminal Verses. This new one has some of the darkest/heaviest lyrics since Iowa and musically it’s got a really interesting balance of Volume 3 and the self titled debut. With all that in mind, I thought a new ranking of Slipknot’s albums would be quite fitting.

New Release: Slipknot- Birth Of The Cruel

Slipknot’s new album We Are Not Your Kind comes out this Friday (August 9). They’ve already put out 2 songs from the album (“Unsainted” and “Solway Firth“) and this new one “Birth Of The Cruel” is quite good. Kind of has a bit of a first album vibe to it. This album is shaping up to be something quite good, I hope.

Slipknot have unveiled the second official single from their new album “We Are Not Your Kind” with the music video for the track “Solway Firth.” The band’s percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan directed the clip, which features footage of the upcoming Amazon Prime “The Boys” as well as live footage from their recent Eurpean tour. If you weren’t impressed with the first single “Unsainted,”  then this one will be the one that draws you in.

Shawn Crahan (aka Clow,n, aka #6). Guitarist Jim Root has stated about the upcoming album “This is most time we’ve had to write a record, and work stuff out together. One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full length albums – not just songs. While the industry is moving toward singles, Slipknot wanted to make an album experience, front to back.” Interestingly, the previously released song “All Out Life” is not on the album.

Memorable TV Performances: Slipknot on Jimmy Kimmel 2004

Back in 2004 when Slipknot released their album Volume 3: The Subliminal Verses, they were guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Rather than play outside on the big stage, Slipknot opted to play inside on the tiny stage instead. I was one of the lucky few that got to go to this mini concert and it was intense. Slipknot ripped through “Duality” and “The Blister Exists” this evening and the crowd ate it up. I remember the people that worked on the show being rather scared of what might happen with Slipknot playing inside and all the fans going nuts, especially when they began playing “The Blister Exists.”  This was one of those TV performances that will always be memorable to me for obvious reasons but also because getting to see Slipknot on a small stage again was badass

Last week Slipknot released a new song from their upcoming new album, which is due out in 2019. Naturally, I went on a kick of listening to them for a few days. While having my own personal listening party, I started to think about all the b-sides they have from their albums. Well now, here they are.
