Slipknot is ready for their sixth round. What about you?

August will be Slipknot‘s month, this band from Iowa will present their latest work “We Are Not Your Kind”. Until then, let’s check out their discography.

Slipknot

It was 1999, in one hand the keys of the car after passing the driving license and in the other a red CD with 9 people with masks… Slipknot was one of the first bands I listened behind the wheel and certainly a breath of fresh air in the Nu-Metal movement.

There is not much we can say about this band from Des Moine, Iowa, that has not been said or written. But… Did you know… ?

Corey Taylor:
Before Slipknot released their first album, in their second performance and known under the name Meld, they shared the stage with the band Stone Sour.

Spit it out:
Thanks to this hit single, the band caught the attention of record companies. Finally the great Ross Robinson, producer who bet on bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit or Deftones, took care of working with them to record their first album.

Did they always wear masks?:
Not all the time. Although the band started in 1992, it wasn’t until 1995 that they decided to use gross makeup and later masks. Finally in 1997 they decided to identify with numbers and wear customs.

Joey Jordison:
Did you know that ex-drummer Joey Jordinson had to replace Lars Ulrich (Metallica) at the Download Festival because of an anxiety attack? And the answer is yes… He couldn’t rehearse with them, so he just warmed up, reached the stage and played.

Before their fifth album, Joey had to leave the band because of a terrible disease called transverse myelitis, a form of multiple sclerosis that affected his legs and made him unable to play. Fortunately, after a long and hard rehabilitation, Joey himself confirms that he is at 100% and ready to start new projects.

All Hope is Gone:
Debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard list.

.5 The Gray Chapter, tributo a un amigo:
On May 24th, 2010, bassist Paul Gray died after an accidental overdose of morphine and its synthetic substitute, fentanyl. Sad news, where Corey Taylor himself stated that it would make no sense to continue with Slipknot without Gray. Finally, the band decided to move on and pay tribute.

Hit song:

Next August 9th, they will release their sixth studio album, until then we can enjoy their first single “Unsainted“.
