Slipknot definitely is one of the best new artist out there in the heavy metal department. It's about time that we have a great hard hitting band out there that isn't sold out. At least, I hope they don't sell out. I was at a concert last summer in 1999 and saw this kid wearing a Slipknot t-shirt and so I figured that I'd see what they sounded like and boy was I in for a surprise!!! I loved it and bought that very same day. They have very heavy tracks with some soft melody in two of the songs. I love all of the songs on their debut album, but my most favorite was taken off and replaced with a new song that is just as good on a re-release of the album. This album is great if you just want to jump around and shake off some extra energy. The tracks give off a power adrenaline rush that just makes you go crazy. In a good way of course. Such songs as "Surfacing", "Sic", and "Spit it Out" are just three of the songs that are great adrenaline rushes. "Wait and Bleed" and "Purity" (no longer on the album. it was replaced with "Me Inside") are two songs that have soft rifts in them and then become hard hitting. Slipknot definitely is worth checking out if you haven't heard them. An added plus, there are nine members and they each go by numbers from 0 to 8 and all wear different masks from a clown mask, gas mask, a Michael Myers mask, and others. This is one band you need to watch out for. Forget Korn and Limp Bizkit...Slipknot definitely has the heaviest "stuff."
