Ten years of Slipknot
Hailing from the "middle of nowhere" - Des Moines, Iowa - Slipknot are a true phenomenon of modern metal. Fortified with an arsenal of blistering music saturated with screams, drums, searing riffs, sampling, scratches and melody, Slipknot's music runs the scale from eerily thought-provoking to utterly terrifying.
Following 2008’s All Hope is Gone and after scooping up Kerrang! Awards for "Best Live Band" and "Best International Act" in 2009, Slipknot return to where it all started a decade previous with their self-titled debut. Hailed as a landmark in metal music, the album has - remarkably - reached platinum status in the UK and houses numerous songs - "Wait & Bleed", "Spit It Out", "Surfacing" - that still form a vital part of their live set.
As part of the 10th anniversary release (9 September), the band have announced a limited deluxe edition box set that includes the Slipknot: 10th Anniversary Special Edition CD, a bonus DVD - containing the Of the Sic short film showing a rare peek into the surreal and complex time around the release of Slipknot’s debut album, director's commentary, never-before-seen live concert footage from the legendary 2000 European tour, and music videos - plus a host of cool extras, including an exclusive t-shirt, beanie hat, stencil, patch, keychain and nine collector's cards, all packaged in a killer steel safety deposit box. A must for all Slipknot fans.
