Overview

“We’re going all the way until one of use dies!” -- Shawn Crahan, Percussionist

A story of struggle, fear, madness and hideous injury -- the most significant and electrifying new band since The Sex Pistols.

“No Limits” is an apt motto for Slipknot, the notoriously controversial band, combining a talent for high drama and outrage with their music. Reinventing the bizarre outlandishness of punk, “nu metal” has become the fastest growing rock craze. Wowing crowds around the world, the unorthodox megastars have achieved unprecedented success, selling over 2 million copies of their debut album. Their trademark costume of masks and coveralls, means their fans still don’t know them, although they thrill to the attack on all their senses the group serves up with every concert. Slipknot continues to spit, swear and risk injury night after night in their disturbing, extraordinary live performances -- winning hard-core commitment from massive new century audiences.

Featuring an introduction from rock legend Ozzy Osbourne and commentary from Gene Simmons of the mighty Kiss.
