After listening to the album at least half a dozen times i can now write about it...i have to say i was pleasantly surprised by it, its better than i was expecting and at the same its everything i was expecting :p it has little bits and pieces from every album they released in the past, and they were still able to incorporate some new elements in it...technically its probably their best, and their most mature, emotional album to date...dont know what some people were expecting this be, its not that "in your face" full pedal to the metal from the early days, its something more, and im diggin it… my top 3 tracks right now are probably Killpop, Sarcastrophe and AOV. 8/10

Interesting... People have different tastes though
I thought All Hope Is Gone was emo and their most mature album
I'm downloading it as a I write and will be listening to it on the way to and from work for the next few days
It takes me usually one listen to know what I like but a week or 2 to get a new love for different songs

My thoughts to follow :happy:

My top tracks so far
AOV
The Devil In I
Goodbye
Nomadic
Custer - This is so well put together with all the different shit going on and I like the chants :8)

Haven't got past track 11 yet as journey to work is only 30 mins, starting from track 12 today

Corey's voice doe, oh my :wub:

I was listening to Slipknot's first album in art class in my last year of high school... I can't believe 15 years later I'm still listening to them. They produce such good music :happy:

Corey's vocals haven't sounded like this since Iowa...i got into Slipknot when i was in High School also...i was like 14, 15 years old :D

The only complaint i got on this album is the production, sounds way to "clean" for a Slipknot album.

^Looks like we share the same opinion about the album :y: what i don't get is people comparing Slipknot with Stone Sour, i mean they're two completely different bands, and how all of a sudden Corey's clean vocals are always considered "stone sour", then i guess "Wait & Bleed" has Stone Sour vocals...i wonder why no one said shit when it came out, and still is considered one of the songs that "define" Slipknot.


Slipknot Get In-Depth On Their History In 26-Minute ‘Audiobiography’


Didn't get a chance to watch it yet, but looks interesting.

It's my album of the year so far as well, but that's not saying much. I may like The Hunting Party better. Shady XV will most likely take the spot for me though anyway.

Just watched the "Audiobiography", is really cool, nice to see what each member thinks of each album...and it's no surprise that they all think All Hope Is Gone is their worst :D


Slipknot - KnotFest 2014 Day 1


That stage :flutter: the new drummer killed it :worship: Corey was having problems with the mask the all show though, he needs to get that fixed...too bad the sound quality of the video is not the best though

At around 12:49 on day 1 :y:


Day 2


This was a way better show, better vocals and sound all around, and a completely different setlist :y:

^I admit that the new cover is kinda odd...my favourite is still the selftitled cover

You talking about that civil war story? It's an interesting story for sure :y:

By the way this is one of those albums that get better each listen :worship:

^To be honest i have no idea how to rank them yet lol have to give the album a couple of more spins to do that...and what about the Bonus Tracks, "Override" and "The Burden"? Did you listen to them yet?




Could only find this one on youtube

Finally got around to listening to the album. It's really really good. I'll have to listen a few more times to see if I like it better than All Hope Is Gone.
