CD REVIEW Slipknot

Band: Slipknot

Label: Roadrunner Records
Distributor: CNR – Concreteweb Promotion Office - Tone
Release date: 20/07/2012
Release: CD

For all of you who have lived under a rock for the last decades, Slipknot is a 9-headed (wearing uniforms and Halloween masks) master (disaster)piece coming all the way from Des Moines, Iowa to bring a combination of alternative-, rap- and nu- metal and to give you a show to never forget. Unfortunately Paul Grey (the beloved bassist of the band) passed away recently.

To be honest, Slipknot was one of my favorite bands when I grew up. I remember I wanted to be and play like Mick Thompson (on guitar) so much that I always rolled up my sleeves just like him, I even bought a guitar like he used to play back in the early days. So I was really excited to hear about this “best of” album.

This is what it is, a best of album with all their greatest hits (19 songs) spanning their entire career to this date. Hits like “Spit It Out”, “Wait And Bleed”, “Duality” and “Psychosocial” all pass by with shear aggression.
It’s not a must-have, cause if you are a fan like me you probably will have all their records already. But it is fun to have this record and just put it in your stereo.

92/100
