Slipknot premiere newest deranged video with “XIX”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, October 5, 2015 at 4:04 PM (PST)

3290

Clown from Slipknot has directed the band’s latest clip “XIX” from .5: The Gray Chapter. The track is very dark and has a certain gothic feel, one of their more interesting and nuanced numbers. Even if the clip wasn’t sure to be a singalong live anthem ready made as a great segue between heavier numbers ala Korn’s 4 U it features naked ladies in veils with nooses dangling between their breasts and some stark imagery of floating coffins, twisted trees and flowers. A cool clip and song.

Check it out BELOW.

Neurosis confirm Heavy Montreal appearance

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, May 4, 2015 at 11:24 AM (PST)

753

Neurosis are arguably the band the most heavier leaning and cerebral artsy types can all agree on as outright kings in their field. The long running band of psychedelic tribal warriors were birthed from the Pain Of Mind political days but evolved over the years into nearly a force of nature themselves. We even gave their Honor Found In Decay record a five star review. Yep, there might as well be a fifth season called Neurosis. The band of deeply rooted punk metal elite champions will trek north to make an appearance at Heavy Montreal this year amidst a line-up including NOFX, Faith No More, Slipknot, Mr. Iggy Pop, Testament and Korn.

Slipknot “Killpop” or sing it?

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 1:15 PM (PST)

Slipknot-2014-1-630x420

Slipknot are once again the most discussed and debated band in metal. Somehow they manage to do it every time. New song “Killpop” came out today and again it proves Joey is missed but that the band can still write good tunes. Corey Taylor is the most interesting thing about this other than the really cool riffing at the end, but it is a fine addition to the band’s legacy. Still, this vocal is more performing pop than killing it, until the screams and distortion start. Between this and “XIX” it seems like the band are taking some cues from older NIN here and there.

Check it out here.

Slipknot release new song “The Devil In I”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, August 25, 2014 at 5:53 PM (PST)

Slipknot-5-Album-Cover

Slipknot are back with a second song from their forthcoming album. It’s got this kind of killer Arch Enemy groove metal intro before Corey Taylor shows over an atmospheric verse why he is one of the most versatile vocalists in rock. And that chorus aint too shaby either, though it sounds a bit indebted to David Draiman (in a good way). Then the shit gets all semi commercial/faux-black metal with a whip cream flanger topping in the bridge. My verdict…Overall, this is knot going to suck- though Joey is very much missed.

Knotfest is back, and so far the lineup is awesome!

Posted by SeanB on Monday, August 11, 2014 at 8:43 PM (PST)

knotfest-poster-2014So if you haven’t heard yet, Slipknot is making new music and bringing “Knotfest” back once again.  So far the festival is featuring all sorts of awesomeness on 5-ish different stages.  There’s no mention of a 4th stage on the official site, but plenty of mention of the 5th.  So is there a fourth stage, and if so who’s playing???(or is the fourth stage just some other type of entertainment like fire breathers or midget stripper wrestlers?)

For the current list of bands and full press release click right here.

Judging from the info we have now, maybe the fourth stage will be full of other types of attractions.  What we do know is that the festival will feature performances by The Black Dahlia Murder, Chelsea Grin, Suicide Silence, Butcher Babies, Alterbeast, Satyricon, Otep,Amen, Prong, Immolation, In This Moment, The Devil Wears Prada,Butcher Babies, Miss May I, One OK Rock, Testament, Carcass, Maximm The Hormone, King 810, Man With A Mission, Danzig, Anthrax, Black Label Society, Hatebreed, Fear Factory, Napalm Death, Atika 7, Exmortus, Rattlehead, Killswitch Engage, Whitechapel, Upon A Burning Body, Anti-Mortem, Of Mice & Men, Devildriver, Veil Of Maya, Nothing More, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Tech N9ne, Atreyu, and even Hellyeah!.

Now that’s just so far.  I don’t feel like tagging each band individually so if you don’t know on please look them up.  The whole of this insanity is unraveling at San Manuel Amphitheater & Campgrounds in San Bernardino, CA on October 24th-26th.  You can find tickets right here.  There’s sure to be more bands announce so keep your ears and eyes open.

Slipknot release freaky video for “The Negative One”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 at 9:43 PM (PST)

image003

Slipknot have released a brand spankin’ nu video for recent single “The Negative One”, which is rumored to feature Chris from Lamb Of God on drums. I’m not so sure. It doesn’t sound as hard hitting as his drumming usually does, but maybe he adjusted things to sound a bit more tribal, if it is him.  The song is fuckin’ cool, though. Very much reminds me of the first Slipknot album but a bit more chaotic.

It’s been a good time in metal for sexy ass crazy demonic babes who are scary and seem possessed in music videos of late, between the girl in this Clown directed clip, the (scariest one) contortionist exorcism chic Pixie (from Game of Thrones) in Savage Messiah’s recent video and the chic in the recent fucking A+ evil awesome new Belphegor joint “Conjuring The Dead”. Something weird is in the air.

Slipknot stream “The Negative One”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, August 1, 2014 at 11:40 AM (PST)

Slipknot logo

Iowa masked ambassadors Slipknot have released a new song for streaming called “The Negative One”, a real thrash and basher that hearkens back to their first album’s insanity with a bit less nu in the metal. Corey sounds pretty darn peeved in this one and the whiplash riffing and grooves you’d expect are all there, though the drumming is noticeably less awesome than when Joey was in the band.

You can unlock the track at the official website HERE. Maggots everywhere weep tears of blood.

This will be on Slipknot’s pending fifth album and the only one to not feature deceased bassist Paul Gray or fan favorite Joey Jordison, who was asked to exit the band last year.

Meg White chosen as new drummer of Slipknot

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 12:18 PM (PST)

Well, this was unexpected.

1558549_10203055236208990_413075197_n

In news sure to shock the metal community, it turns out Meg White has been out of the limelight since the White Stripes broke up because she has been plotting big things…becoming the new “Number 1” in Slipknot. It turns out White has always been a metal fan and that the mask will help her acute anxiety.

Comments Meg (turning down the Black Keys and putting down her Alison Mosshart voodoo doll):

“Maggots are white. How’s that for starters! I just wanted to call our 5th Stripes album ‘Satan’ but Jack insisted on adding the “get behind me…” part. Now Behemoth are getting all this press for ‘The Satanist’. I could fucking murder somebody. You want to hear an Icky Thump!? How about I smash you over the head with this tiny red drum kit! But yeah, that was the start of the end. It really caused a rift between me and Jack. I wanted to bring in elements to the Stripes to show where the blues eventually evolved…ass thudding metal! Throw in a Krokus or W.A.S.P. cover. But no! Jack was so always busy making guitars out of bird feeders. Well now I am “Number1″ in reality! Bitches will finally get to hear my speed and brutal finesse.”

According to sources (a dream I had), Meg has already penned a few contributions for the top secret next ‘Knot release. Working titles include “Raconteurs = Shit” and “Black Orchid”. Personally, I adore Meg and think this is going to be a lot of fun.

Slipknot-Logo-White-WallpaperSlipknot drummer Joey Jordison has taken to Facebook to announce that his departure from Slipknot was not voluntary.  To paraphrase his statement, which you can read below, he announces that he did not leave but implies that he was forced out for reasons he cannot go into.

You can read Jordison’s statement here: “I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumors and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot. I want to make it very clear that I DID NOT QUIT SLIPKNOT. This band has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans. This news has shocked and blindsided me as much as it has all of you. While there is much I would like to say, I must remain silent to further details at this time. I would like to thank you all for your unwavering love and support, and wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year.”
