As those from UG know, I was a huge Slipknot fan when I was 13. Then I went to hating their music, aside from some of the eerie atmospheric songs which I have always thought are good. I've been listening to them again for the past couple of days and I have started to like more of their work again.

I still can't stand a lot of their music but they can be a really good band when they want to be. I would say that they are up their with Tool as one of two metal bands I like (three if you count Nine Inch Nails's metal-influenced work). Usually I cannot stand metal music, but when I listen to Slipknot it's like I suddenly understand metal.

Like in this song for example:



Despite it's major flaws (vocals are kind of corny) I actually feel groove to it. You can't really dance to it, but I understand why people do what they do at metal concerts when I hear something like this, while with most metal I just stand there and think 'wtf is this'.

This song has a bit of a 'butt rock' chorus but despite that it shows that they are good at making slow, sombering music as well:



Even when they are being obnoxious it's still entertaining music because of how over the top it is:



And as I've said, they really have a talented for writing music that is creepy in a good way:













That eminent apocalypse vibe.

I was looking forward to the new album when I heard the really eerie teasers but I don't like either of the new full songs so I don't know.

Iowa is bad.

Discuss my impeccable tastes in music.

Sam's gonna be pissed for having this in the metal forum, but I like some of their singles. I never bothered to look into their albums.

Butt rock? haha.

I've never cared much for Slipknot except sometimes when Corey Taylor actually sings, like Psychosocial. He has a really nice voice when he's actually singing.

Just go for Stone Sour then.

He doesn't always sing in Stone Sour either though.

I saw Stone Sour live when I went with my friend to a butt-rock concert. 8)

Slipknot is better in my opinion.

He seems like he does it more often than he does in Slipknot.
