Overview

Slipknot [10th Anniversary Edition CD/DVD]

These nine Midwestern boys (all from Des Moines, IA) 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. [Slipknot reissued their eponymous debut in 2009 to mark the record's 10th anniversary. The special edition CD/DVD featured the original album in its' entirety, as well as numerous bonus cuts, demos, remixes and a full length concert DVD from 2000 bolstered by a 50-minute documentary.]

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.

While some metal fans may argue that this album is "fake" or some other word of their choosing, they are ignoring the great talent that made this album. First of all, how many metal artists, death or otherwise, hail from the middle of the United States and manage to become worldwide phenomenae? Second, some may point to songs such as "Spit It Out" and say that they're trying to be emo posers with the rapidfire wordings. Hardly. Songs such as this are simply so fast and hard that the lyrics must be screamed as fast as humanly possible. While not all the songs may be winners, this is an album that is definitely worth a listen. If you need a softer introduction to Slipknot, without the cursing of humanity and the throat-injuring screams, take a listen of Slipknot: The Subliminal Verses Volume 3. If you're just wanting to jump in and experience being a Maggot, then there's no better album than this

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''.

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!!!!!!!!!

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!!!!

If you are a true heavy metal fan, this is the CD for you. Slipknot lives by their own rules and creates a dark and heavy atmosphere with every song.
