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.]

This is by far my favorite metal album of all time, and Slipknot is my favorite metal band as well. Don't listen to the people who say this is death metal and its all horrible, because Corey Taylor puts a lot more thought into his songs then most artists do. If you like metal at all, i highly advise you to buy this CD.

I SEEN SLIPKNOT IN CONCERT AT OZ FEST IT WAS SO CRAZY WHEN THEY CAME OUT THEY ARE ONE OF THE SICKEST BANDS I'VE HEARD IN A WHILE

Slipknot has emerged with some wicked riffs, beats, samples, and vocals. No.8's throaty howls make you wonder how he hasn't lost a lung yet. The songs are filled with a lot of rage and adrenaline. These guys came to chew bubble gum and kick butt(they forgot the bubble gum though) Definitely an eye-opener, and a must-get.....

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.

The cd simply kicked some serious buttocks man. It was fast and heavy just the way i liked it. I can't wait for new cd which is supposed to blow the hell out of everybody.

I love them I can't fall a sleep if i don't listen to the whole cd at LEAST once. They are soooooooo awesome. (8)Corey Taylor is a very good vocalist. 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!!!!
