iTunes Review

All Hope Is Gone took Slipknot four years to make because the masked mephistos were busy with other evil endeavors. Singer Corey Taylor and guitarrorist Jim Root found success with side project Stone Sour and drummer Joey Jordison worked with Ministry, Korn, 3 Inches Of Blood, and percussionist Shawn Crahan's band Dirty Little Rabbits. But don't think that All Hope Is Gone sounds like Slipknot have been spread thin — the outside experience gave their sinister sound more musical strength, making for an album that is darker, deeper, harder, and more possessed than their predecessors. It's the first time all members were involved in the songwriting. The experimental noise collage of ".Execute." crescendos into the opening track "Gematria (The Killing Name)," a brutal onslaught of pummeling rhythms and guitar artillery that catapults the anti war lyrics. "Psychosocial" delivers brutally heavy drums that march alongside monstrous guitar riffs contrasting with a melodic chorus of powerful anti-occupation rhymes. And with a fierce title track and three exclusive iTunes bonus songs, this one's going to be hard to top.

Customer Reviews

Amazing! It's Slipknot.

At first I questioned the Stone Sour esque of this album but as I listened to it more, I found that It is still the best band in the world but every band evolves in some way. It is so amazing what these guys can do! Their music can get me though anything! Here is my examination of the album: Execute: Nice opening track, Great way to start it off Gematria (The Killing Name): This is Slipknot! Heavier and thrash included Sulfur: This is an amazing song, Very Slipknot with a touch of Stone Sour but of course with a Slipknot twist to it. Psychosocial: What can you say about this track? Best track on the album! You can go absolutely crazy to this! Dead Memories: This is my third favorite song next to “All Hope is Gone”. So much meaning! Truly amazing. Vendetta: Very Slipknot, great song! Butcher's Hook: Sounds like Iowa with a new sound . Again, another great. Gehenna: The chous is very different, I guess I have to grow into it. This Cold Black: Sounds like old Slipknot but Thrashier. Wherein Lies Continue: Haven’t listened to it much but it is good. Snuff: This is the “Vermillion” or “Circle” of this album. So AMAZING! All Hope is Gone: Amazing, Second favorite on this album. Child of Burning Time: Very good Til We Die: Also like a Vermillion but also amazing!


Brutal CD, Slipknot comes back with another hard-hitter! KEEP ROCKIN! \m/

You Ignorant People

Why can't anyone see? A band is a band. Slipknot will always be Slipknot. They promised this to be their most experimental album to date. That means they're trying new things from adding high-hats and accoustics to becoming more melodic. They've changed their masks as a symbol that they're evolving and so is their music. So you so-called "true" Slipknot fans would not understand because you think a band should always stay the same. Slipknot is full of people, whose lives change continually as everyone elses. They're music reflects that. An actual TRUE FAN would understand this. A TRUE FAN would be a Slipknot fan, not an Iowa fan, or a Vol. 3 fan. A Slipknot fan. Please click Yes if you agree. I need support here.


Formed: September, 1995 in Des Moines, IA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
