Editors’ Notes

Grief and loss aren't something typically associated with horror-core specialists Slipknot, but when founding bassist Paul Gray died in 2010 they dedicated The Gray Chapter to their friend. Slipknot's first album in six years, it's both a eulogy and a means of moving on. "I don't want to get up, but I have to," sings Corey Taylor on the opener, "XIX." What follows is a blitzkrieg of a tribute.

Slipknot .5 The Gray Chapter

So far Slipknot has evolved to a level only a true 'maggot' can appreciate. From their self-titled debut, delivering heart stopping riffs and breakdowns, to All Hope is Gone with their brutal attacks and heartbreaking ballads like Snuff, one can appreciate the next chapter before it even begins. 'The Devil In I' has bone chilling verses with melodic riffs to elevate the mood, where 'The Negative One' deploys a vicious attack to whoever you choose, this album promises to deliver everything a 'Maggot' could ask for.


If you don’t know who Slipknot is, let me sum it up for you. They were the biggest @#$%ing deal in rock at the start of the 21st century. Sadly, they took a little time off when their bassist died (R.I.P man), but now no one, and I mean NO ONE will be able to top these guy’s return. We maggots are welcoming them with arms wide open, and if you got a problem with it you can wait in line!

The Wait Is Over!

Finally after 6 years. It's good to have you guys back!

Slipknot's mix of grinding, post-Korn alternative metal, Marilyn Manson-esque neo-shock rock, and rap-metal helped make them one of the most popular bands in the so-called nu-metal explosion of the late '90s. But even more helpful was their theatrical, attention-grabbing image: the band always performed in identical industrial jump suits and homemade Halloween masks, and added to its mysterious anonymity by adopting the numbers zero through eight as stage aliases. Add to that a lyrical preoccupation...
