Overview

These nine Midwestern boys (all from Des Moines, IA) reportedly perform wearing orange industrial coveralls with UPC symbols on the front; each bandmember is identified by a number, which is painted on the sleeve of his coveralls. Each also wears a really nasty-looking mask. Judging from their appearance and from the sound of their debut album, it's easy to assume that they're upset about something. What it is exactly is kind of hard to tell, since the stuttering roar of Number 8's vocals is barely discernible through the jackhammer death metal drums, massed guitars, horror-show samples, and jittery turntable scratches that pummel the listener through almost every song. You thought Limp Bizkit was hard? They're the Osmonds. These guys are something else entirely. And it's pretty impressive. Although those lyrics that are discernible are not generally quotable on a family website, suffice it to say that the members of Slipknot are not impressed with their fathers, their hometown, or most anything else. "Surfacing" starts out by cursing pretty much everything generally, and then it starts getting aggressive, as shrieking guitar feedback alternates with DJ scratching. "Spit It Out" is speed rap-metal with an actual melody in the chorus; "Scissors" ends the program with a sound that quite simply couldn't get any more aggro without falling apart entirely, and by the end, the singer actually sounds like he's about to burst into tears. An auspicious debut. [A U.S. "bonus tracks #2" release includes five bonus tracks.]

I've listened to rock since Iwas first born and I think they rock plus they don't even need MTV or the radio to make them awesome *NSUCK SLIPKNOT #1!!! HARDCORE ROCK BABY!!!!

Slipknot is an excellent album, containing excellent vocals and outstanding guitar riffs. The idea of a 9-member metal band is pretty cool, and their masks give them a cool image. The songs that stood out in my mind were ''Spit It Out'', ''(SIC)'', and ''Wait and Bleed''.

Slipknot is a creative band from Iowa that not a lot of parents understand. Usually they tell their teenager to ''Shut that noise off!'' Or ''I don't want to hear that in my house!'' Either way, a fan is a fan and drawn into the music. Slipknot is a great band of nine. They have great energy, creativity, attitudes, and not to mention the great fans. If you are into loud-hardcore music, then Slipknot is for you. If you aren't already a fan, or just typed in the title ''Slipknot'' by accident, then just give them a chance, and check out their self-titled album!

Slip Knots album has 2 be the best, fastest heavy metal band ever. every track is different and always includes some serious fast Drumming, great Bass, and brilliant Vocals. some songs are very Heavy but others not so heavy which, i think is good. this is 1 cd i always listen 2, it stands out from the others because of its cover(all 9 band members looking Evil with there Masks on). go and buy THE amazing album now.

This is a formidable album, but these guys were just too angry & hostile and used entirely too much language throughout this album. It was too much for me. I don't mind a little language or angst here and there in certain albums, but this was a bit much. Sure, it's just words, but by society's standards, it's still cursing, and I just feel that too much language, and also too much hostility, just taints music. You can still have good metal & death metal music without so much language and hostility. I understand that Iowa is not much different either. If you like that sort of thing, then have at it, but I just can't deal with it. I think I'll stick with Subliminal Verses and All Hope Is Gone. Those I can deal with.

Damn, what do we have here, If you like this you are a pretty weird guy, or girl. I mean, come on the riffs on this album suck so bad I bet your grandmother can top em, I know mine can. Heavy metal sure has gotten crappy. In the 70's we had Black Sabbath and Deep Purple who rock. In the 80's we had Metallica and Iron Maiden who rock. And now we have some freaky sons of, well, clowns. Yes Slip Snot, I mean not or what ever want to be circus characters or somthing, Damn our society cant win, Thats American music for ya. Buy some real metal and stop being a freak, come on.

ok for one, slipknot is not "GOTHIC". just plain heavy,heavy rock\metal. if your gonna like slipknot for what\who they are, dont catorgize them as a (a really dumb and made up religion) band, they only used some lyrics to attrach attention and to get people to like thier style of music. oh,if u like metal with some twists in it, buy this cd and all the other slipknot cds.

This Cd in the most amazing metal you've ever heard. It's wicked, even heavier than Korn or Rage. I defenatly recommend it to anyone except parents.

This is Slipknots first album and I say it's great, the band is good and the mask are cool. What they play is hard and it sounds scary, they got some good stuff. Get it if you are hardcore rocker.

This a very good album. I only gave it four stars because it isn't as focused as their next two albums, Iowa and Volume 3 the Subliminal Versus, but it is still very good. Also it slows down every now and then. Regardless this is still some of the best Nu Metal out there.

this album is a great edition to any metalheads cd collection or guitar shredder or headbanger this cd is just straight up awesome its seriously one fun album my favorite track on the album is the hidden track known as eeyore i also love wait and bleed spit it out liberate me inside i love every song on slipknots debut album slipknot still going strong since 1999 onwards and good luck to all those true heavy metal fans and please slipknot is not a freak show they are a real metal band just like mushroomhead i do not focus on the bands image i just love listening to the music do not worry about their image

This is it. This is the best heavy metal cd out there! There is nothing like it! It is a completely heavy and awesome cd by the one and only Slipknot! You cant compare it to anything. If you thought Limp Bizkit was heavy think again. Limp Bizkit is NOTHING compared Slipknot. Slipknot are there to show people what music is all about. There are awesome tracks in this cd from the shocking (SIC) and the tempeting song Surfacing that made Slipknot what they are today! When thinking of a new heavy metal cd, this is the best thing out there!!!!!!!!!
