Sorry to hi-jack your thread guys but we felt like we needed to make an "Official" Slipknot thread and this thread is full of good information. If you have ANYTHING related to Slipknot post it here, don't make new threads. If you post something negative about Slipknot back up your statement. If you make a post that just says "Slipknot sucks" your gonna have some serious problems.

Anyway, enjoy and lets have some "INTELLIGENT" conversations and fun! SFK.


PLEASE:
No flaming SlipKnot in this thread
Don't just come in here and bash them, 'cause thats just childish
Don't come in here and bash other people in the thread, childish also

THIS IS PURELY FOR DISCUSSION ON SLIPKNOT

First I will ask:
Out of all SlipKnot's CD's (including singles with remixes)
Best 20 songs?

Slipknot are awesome, but i've moved away from them, i don't listen to them as much any more, for me, their latest album was a dissapointment, it was a change in their style of music which to me, makes COREY not the band, it makes corey a sellout. I only say this because all of slipknot say stuff like "corey was a real drive for us this time around".

I don't listen to Slipknot a whole lot, but I think their first album kicked major ***. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else saw them on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. I've never seen them live before, but I thought it was a great performance.

It was a sweet performance, but Jimmy was acting like a major dousch, but that's just Jimmy I guess.
The band could really do without the crazy guy who hits things with a bat occasionally, he doesn't add anything to the band.

Meh, I used to like Slipknot and I still listen to them once in awhile. But I have never gotten the fact that they call their fans "maggots" as a complement, but what ever they have alot of love for their fans but I do not see "maggot" as a way to express your love for your fans by calling them that.

Also I saw Slipknot about 2 days ago, and they put on a great stage show and it was fun to watch them. So that kind of boosted my respect for them.

Slipknot is an ok band, but all these people running around saying stupid ignorant comments such as they are the "greatest", "fastest" and "heaviest" band around annoys me, and all those people running around saying that I can believe why they hate Slipknot so much is because they have for the most part ignorant fans...

I like Slipknot. But what I don't like is when stupid people call them "Da Knot" or "The Knot."

What would be best for them though would be to drop the Nu-Metal influences and change over to a metalcore band, like Chimaira did.

Maggots of the Knot? Now I've seen everything. Well I actually liked SlipKnot, untill they released their Iowa album. From that point, I started to think that SlipKnot is utter ****. And still today my oppinion remains the same. Also I found it very dumb to remove the second vocalist, Anders. That Corey bitch..

And for the maggot thing which was created by Joey the midget drummer(but not a bad drummer). I just find that stupid and lame XD Get some selfrespect.

07-31-2004, 04:11 PM
^I agree with one thing. Be yourself, don't accept stupid labels (maggots... ugh). But I dissagree with you about Iowa, I liked it better than anything else they put out.

P.S.: Anders quit, so did that really good guitarist.

Slipknot - best. band. ever.

So you may not be able to vent anger out to the new record, that doesnt stop it being the best record theyve put out yet, even though i love everything theyve done
And really, how can Corey be a sell out just by doing what he does best n doing it well?
Thats what i dont understand, a band become successful or better at what they do and automatically theyre selling out? Erm, explain?

Anyhoo, i dont really have a top 20 in any order apart from the top spot

I think they had the best set list on the Disasterpieces DVD (where you can hear both the live and studio versions of Purity), i cant wait for October to see how they work the new stuff into such a great set.

in the words of Corey Taylor, he said this was the stalkers anthem
prosthetics was written about something corey read in the enquirer (or a similiar magazine) it wasnt true, but it touched him, so he wrote a song about it.

i have MFKR and its pretty good, the only downfall is it doesnt have that many songs on it

Wow an official slipknot thread, without flaming :) Is anyone like me and only really enjoy their more melodic stuff. NOt talking just about vermillion pt2 and circle. Im tlaking stuff like Nameless, Wait and bleed. Yeah i can just about listen to their quirky first album with tracks like liberate and only one on there. BUt i just seem to like their more melodic stuff better. Alot of it is like what mudvayne produced on their newest album (the end of all thigns to come)....anyone?

The remix songs are not really much different from the original songs. The songs are still class and id say spit it out would be the best. Wat do use think the best live slipknot song is? I would say three nil cse it fukin rules. :cool:

I don't know if this has been talked about or whatever, but I'm stating what I think...

Slipknot are the band I hate the most out of all bands. I have many good reasons.

Lack of Talent/Originality -

I don't think Slipknot are talented at all. I've heard people say "ooo, Mick really shreds". Go listen to some Jason Becker or something, and then try to tell me Mick can shred. I've looked at numerous Slipknot tabs and they all digust me. So many people also so Joey is really good at drums. I'm a drummer, and I hear nothing sepcial from him. In fact I don't even think he's that great or original with his drumming. Also, there's the lyrics and song meanings. Most of Slipknot's songs are about depression and suicide, typical nu-metal style. It makes me sick

The Whole 9 Member Thing -

This actually makes me laugh. I find it really funny how Slipknot can have 9 members and play as poorly as they do. I can think of countless bands that sound better than slipknot and play with 5, 4 or even 3 members. I don't get why they need two percussionists, they don't add anything to the music. I saw Duality live on Leno and one of them hit a garbage can. Now that's talent. The whole sampler and DJ thing is stupid too. Jordan Rudess from Dream Theater does all of their samples and plays the keyboard like a god at the same time. Slipknot could have two members and be just about as good. I make better music by myself than Slipknot does with 9 people.


Bad Influence -

Slipknot is typical whiny nu-metal. They are making kids more "depressed" then they already were by making them think life is so hard. I see tons of Slipknot fans that are all dressed in black with chains and spikes and make up. Goth kids make me angry. Suck it up and get a life. Listen to some real metal.

Gimmick -

The MASKS. Wow, you don't want to be recognized in public, big deal. Pay the price for being famous. Maybe if they get rid of those silly costumes they can make some good music while they are at it.

Anyway, I don't want to go on much longer, the fact is Slipknot is bad for you.

I think it's great with a band that has a different constellation. Bands with two guitarists, a bassplayer and a drummer, maybe a keyboard player if they want to sound more melodic whilst playing their guitar-based rock music focusing on our emotions lyrically and musically... there are plenty of those. And I am aware that one mainly hear guitars and drums on their newest...

And about that mask-thing: guess everyone has to let their label deal with their excuse of an image if they hope to sell some records. It's a business dealing with lots of money, so everyone capabl of getting attention (positive as well as negative) may have a bigger chance to sell records.

Chris and Sid always beat the crap out of each other on stage. The latter is one crazy f*ck, even lighting himself on fire.
Even though the guitarists' riffs aren't hard for an intermediate guitarist, the solos on Vol. 3 do kick some serious ***. And people complaining about a band having nine members just don't realize the dynamic that they put in the music together.
And then there's Joey. That's reason enough.

I could'nt hve said it better. I mean just look at there tabs. There's like three notes in them and they do the whole drop C crap. Two words Slipknot, STANDARD TUNING. They hide there hideous faces so when people relize how much they suck, they may be able to walk around in public. A band needs a Lead Guitarist, a Rhythem Guitarist, a drummer, and a bassist. And maybe like 2 more members for some different instruments. But 9? What a joke. Screaming into a mic isnt talent, the singers probably as good as anyone at singing so he roars into the mic. The lyrics are a joke too. "Slit your throat and F*ck the wound" You gotta be kidding. A drunk sixth grader on crack with mental issues could write more clever lyrics. Either they need to give there band a LOT of work, or they can have their little goth fans for awhile 'till the get jobs and lives and relize that music is more than just loud guitars and screaming. Heavy metal has those, yes, but good heavy metal also needs good songwriting and technical talent or something close to it. The drummer may be good, I'm not the best at knowing a good drummer cause I listen to guitar and singing mainly, but I know a talented band when I hear one and Slipknot fall short.

Mick can come up with INSANELY AWESOME RIFFS. i mean, no one can deny that his riffs are the sh1t, but still...if you look at their tabs (someone else also said this i dont know how to do 2 quotes) theyre soooo simple. i mean, The Vermillion Part 2, that is so f*ckin easy to play. (sic) is all open strings, except the last note which is a bar chord on the first fret. and The Blister Exists sounds INSANE, but its just string bending on the thirteenth fret on the E. i mean, the riffs sound awesome, but theyre extremely simple to play. Mick is a CLEVER guitarist, but hes not a GOOD guitarist. ill give him that. dont get me wrong, SlipKnot is my favorite band of all time, but i (unlike most "little slipknot followers") look at the band with REALITY in mind. i know there are MANY bands more talented than slipknot.

Yeh that solo on Pulse of The Maggots doesnt really appeal to me, something more melodic which does not spoil the flow of the song would have been better, but Mick Thompson is very good, no one can deny that, though i aggree that a lot of the riffs he writes are quite simple. Paul as a bassist has gone slightly downhill aswell, judging my the difference between his playing on the first album (MFKR) and the current songs. Corey is a good singer, and has a lot of variation to his voice but it does sound at its best when he isn't screaming, which is overdone a bit. Most of their songs don't really have a great flow to them (I havn't listened to them in a while so I may be wrong) which makes them hard to enjoy.
I think they should aim for a wider audience with their music, as currently not many people can really enjoy them, they should do another MFKR type album, with varying songs on it.
But hey thats just my opinion, flame it if you must.

SlipKnot aren't the *greatest* band out there, but I must say, I give them credit; They got me into the metal scene, as it is;

I saw them live on the Jagermeister music tour...they put on an incredible show...simply that, it can't be called anything less than incredible (Chimaira and Fear Factory OWNED as well)

Mick and James are NOT bad guitarists; In fact, they are incredible, but I do not believe that SliPKnot does their skills justice; They can write heavy riffs (not THE heaviest) and they can be enjoyable to listen to...

And with the mask and the "maggot" ordeal, who the **** cares? Music is about the music, and gimmick or not, the "masks" shouldn't influence your opinion on a band...

I guess I could list my top "10" songs, since I got here late, anyway

1) Some Feel (MFKR)
2) Purity (Un-released)
3) My Plague (Iowa)
4) (sic) (Self-Titled)
5) Metabolic (Iowa)
6) Surfacing (Self-Titled)
7) Spit It Out (Self-Titled)
8) Left Behind (Iowa)
9) SlipKnot (MFKR)
10) Welcome (Volume 3)

I also took the pleasure in making a SlipKnot fan site (www.prosthetics666.cjb.net) a while back, yet I still have to update a lot of stuff :)

Anyway, yeah, SlipKnot will always have a place in my heart

SlipKnot really shouldnt try to do solos, they should just stick with what they do best :cool:

Mick and jim wanted too include some of their solos in the first two albums but Ross Robinson said their songs were very melodic and so they didnt need solos. That is why there third album was produced by Rick Rubin as Slipknot wanted too venture new stuff and include solos.

08-06-2004, 03:29 PM
I don't know if this has been talked about or whatever, but I'm stating what I think...

Slipknot are the band I hate the most out of all bands. I have many good reasons.

Lack of Talent/Originality -

I don't think Slipknot are talented at all. I've heard people say "ooo, Mick really shreds". Go listen to some Jason Becker or something, and then try to tell me Mick can shred. I've looked at numerous Slipknot tabs and they all digust me. So many people also so Joey is really good at drums. I'm a drummer, and I hear nothing sepcial from him. In fact I don't even think he's that great or original with his drumming. Also, there's the lyrics and song meanings. Most of Slipknot's songs are about depression and suicide, typical nu-metal style. It makes me sick

Go look at some old Sabbath tabs Im sure you'd find them equally disgusting.Im not comparing Thompson to Iommi but Im just stating that technicality isnt everything.I learned to play Sabbath songs within a week after picking up a guitar.Mick CAN shred.Not the best but he can.Try to find the video that was on the Line 6 website that he did.You'd be surprised.Joey is a really talented drummer.Not the best but he is talented.Go to a Metallica board and they'll say the same **** about Lars.Not true at all,but people that really like them will express it in that way that seems ignorant as ****.Kinda like a guy would say "my girlfriend is the most beautiful girl in the world".Its more of a way to show admiration rather than stating fact.I think Pete Sandoval,Flo Mounier,Nick Barker,they are all better than Joey.I just like Joey's style better.

The Whole 9 Member Thing -

This actually makes me laugh. I find it really funny how Slipknot can have 9 members and play as poorly as they do. I can think of countless bands that sound better than slipknot and play with 5, 4 or even 3 members. I don't get why they need two percussionists, they don't add anything to the music. I saw Duality live on Leno and one of them hit a garbage can. Now that's talent. The whole sampler and DJ thing is stupid too. Jordan Rudess from Dream Theater does all of their samples and plays the keyboard like a god at the same time. Slipknot could have two members and be just about as good. I make better music by myself than Slipknot does with 9 people.

Ignorant last sentence there.But anyway the 9 member thing did actually play a role in their most recent album.There was use of a moog keyboard,congas,triangles,xylophones,a grand piano,3 part vocal harmonies,timpani drums,stuff that a 5 piece band wouldnt be able to pull off live.Its not technical because its not meant to be.Its music you can enjoy without the annoyance of show off solos that are present in Dream Theater.Aside from that they are showmen,their live shows wouldnt be as intense with 5 members.Thats why their shows are fun to mosh at,and fun to actually watch the stage as well."A sonic assult on all your senses".

Bad Influence -

Slipknot is typical whiny nu-metal. They are making kids more "depressed" then they already were by making them think life is so hard. I see tons of Slipknot fans that are all dressed in black with chains and spikes and make up. Goth kids make me angry. Suck it up and get a life. Listen to some real metal.

You act like Slipknot is the only ****in band in the world that is a "bad influence" on people.Im sure Cannibal Corpse's lyrics are a great influence on people.Goths are idiots I agree.But anyone that listens to Slipknot should know that there is an underlying positive message in their lyrics.I have drawn nothing but positivity from their lyrics.When Corey speaks of all the depressing ****,he does it in a philosophical manner.He is in no way saying he agree's with it.He drops hints in the songs that tell you it's not right to do it.Besides,who really takes dudes in masks all too literal.

Gimmick -

The MASKS. Wow, you don't want to be recognized in public, big deal. Pay the price for being famous. Maybe if they get rid of those silly costumes they can make some good music while they are at it.

Yeah I agree the masks are a bit stupid.Quite stupid actually.It's funny when I hear black metal fans bash Slipknot for wearing masks.At the same time they are the one's listening to bands that wear corpse make up and spikes all over their bodies.Ironic.But anyway,Slipknot may have a gimmick when it comes to their image,but they keep that clear from their music.The masks dont affect the music at all.Corey's lyrics are him expressing his views on the world.Slipknot's message to their fans has been to be who you are,dont take people's judgements about you to heart because their opinion shouldnt matter to you.I salute Slipknot for that.No gimmick in that.Slayer on the other hand puts on a satanist front in their lyrics.That is a gimmick for sure.Do Cannibal Corpse really eat dead bodies?No,gimmick?Yes.Besides,many bands have gimmicks without even knowing it.I'd like to see Tom Arraya cut his hair so I can see all these Slayer fans bitch about he he looks gay now.Its the same ****.People are just to ignorant to see it that way.They cease to relize that the true gimmick lies within the music,not image.

Anyway, I don't want to go on much longer, the fact is Slipknot is bad for you

Well gee thanks for the advice!!But your not my ****in mom.So **** off.

Well,people are entitled to their own opinions and if you dont like them thats fine.But I think the ones that say they have close to no talent are only passing judgement.I encourage you to listen to Vol.3 from top to bottom.I think that this album proves that there is talent within the band.It has already silenced some bashers.It may surprise you if you drop pre-concieved notions or biased feelings.

Yeah I just saw Slipknot like this past Saturday. I found it dissapointing, I honestly feel that, overall, their "hype" does not match the quality of their music. Yall know where I'm coming from? Just so many people worship Slipknot, and are all up on the "maggot" stuff, and the scene, the show, not so much the musical aspect. But hey, whatever floats your boat. Im not really trying to bash them, just saying that their hype leaves them with big shoes to fill, and I think they come up short. I was a fan early on, but all the posers (there are a **** load of them) and bull**** that came along with Slipknot, steered me away from them; I dont really feel like I'm missing out though.

Idiot fans arent gonna steer me away from a band I like.The band would have to do it themselves.With the release of Vol.3,I like them even more.I think a recycled Iowa or s/t would have steered me away.Im glad they tried something new because listening to this album felt like the first time listening to Slipknot again.Vol.3>their old stuff.

I really wouldnt consider them original. Plenty of bands have DJ/Sampler guys, and rednecks have been hitting trash cans in drunken rage since 1915.

I dont like them because I dont like them, the tool fanbase is what pisses me off. "I think of Slipknot as heavy black metal" :lol: :lol: :lol:

And here's something to point out to u. If anyone has the S/T digipak (I do) on the inside of the first flap it says "These are Subliminal Verses". I found that kinda of weird, I mean they put that on the S/T and 5 years later the 3rd album is called Vol. 3 *(The Subliminal Verses)*. Just some kool thing I noticed.

Absolutely not.They tried new things on this album.Just doing what musicians do.Had they stuck to the same old formula,that would have been selling out because "thats what everyone wants to hear".Slipknot proved they are artists with this album.They didnt paint the same potrait again.This was a ballsy record.For a band like Slipknot to pull acoustic songs in their cd,that took balls to go that direction.So no,definently not sell outs.

(Commenting on the topic of "maggots" from page 7)
I agree with what you guys are saying, these little kids, dont know **** about music, the band, the meanings behind the songs or anything else, they just like the band because its loud and corey says f*ck alot (earlier 2 albums). now with volume three the little f*ggot pussies are whining because theres no swearing and whatnot. the people that claim to be "hardcore maggots" (often written: "hradcare magat!!111") are almost 100% of the time the d*ck heads that have no god **** brain and dont know **** about music, or even the music they listen to. they give a bad name to all slipknot fans and thats what we're all stero typed as.

-firstly whats with the maskes man u do know its just a gimmick or mabye its cause there to ugly and scared to show there face or mabye they anrt true headbangers and have gay homosexual tatoos on there face our something
-secondly there nu metal and that to me means that theve hardly got any instrumental talent including there singing it sounds like theve got a frog in there throat that is purmently loged there and will never come out
-3rd and lastly come on man this isnt real metal real metal doesnt matter about looks its about guys playing heavy "music" notice the quotations this is because slipknot is hardly music its more an advertisment guys its ok to listen to slipknot but get out there and just check out some real bands and or music i suggest megadeth man o war pantera motorhead ironmaiden metallica (not st.anger try kill em all) slayer(even though u might already listen to slayer) and monster magnet just try them man and dont get all mad at me just because im not a sell out who just trys to be scary i like the music and hey the truth herts man

Mick can come up with INSANELY AWESOME RIFFS. i mean, no one can deny that his riffs are the sh1t, but still...if you look at their tabs (someone else also said this i dont know how to do 2 quotes) theyre soooo simple. i mean, The Vermillion Part 2, that is so f*ckin easy to play. (sic) is all open strings, except the last note which is a bar chord on the first fret. and The Blister Exists sounds INSANE, but its just string bending on the thirteenth fret on the E. i mean, the riffs sound awesome, but theyre extremely simple to play. Mick is a CLEVER guitarist, but hes not a GOOD guitarist. ill give him that. dont get me wrong, SlipKnot is my favorite band of all time, but i (unlike most "little slipknot followers") look at the band with REALITY in mind. i know there are MANY bands more talented than slipknot.
well thats my 2 cents!! :thumb:
too true. slipknot are my favourite band too, and mick is good but has simple stuff. thankyou.

I've been reading alot more about Slipknot lately, and the dude who runs black-goat.com had this to say in regards to Slipknot and genre

"1.1.1. What genre does Slipknot belong to?
Hard to explain, but let's put it this way: they're a band that fuses elements taken from hardcore (ie. aggressive vocals, heavy chunks of distortion), goregrind (ie. blast beats, gore imagery), and modern rock. They're not metal, and they're certainly not plain hard rock either."

What do other Slipknot fans think about this? Personally I was quick to just call them metal, but maybe not? Alot of people say they are Nu metal, but I don't agree with that either

Just want some opinions, and if your'e going to be a dick about it, kindly fuck off now.

That is actually on every Slipknot fansite.It wasnt written by Michael(they guy who runs black-goat)himself.I also dont agree with them being put in the Nu Metal catagory.But whatever.They are alot more metal oriented than the bands they get lumped up with in the nu metal genre.You can hear more metal influence in their music than you hear in Korn or whatever.Im prolly gonna get bashed for this,but I think Slipknot does pass for metal.

Not really.Craig used to just do samples back then.He has a keyboard and grand piano now so he is alot more present on the new album.I guess Danger-Keep Away is his stand out track because its mostly just keyboard.Sid does some stuff,more on s/t and Vol.3 than Iowa(which he was rarely used at all).He is actually pretty decent.His solo in Disasterpiece shows it.But if they let him stand out on their albums,it would sound too much like Limp Bizkit or something.

Edit:Come to think of it,Slipknot songs would be to plain without the crazy sounds that sid and Craig incoorperate.They actually do alot for the band.

I agree with you that it is a good album but i do not think that it is better than the debut. I think the first album is really about the people they are and describes the emmotion behind their music. However, the third album sees corey singing about similar stuff with a less aggressive tone to it and acoustic guitars added. I do feel the solos were a nice touch though. Fav song would be three nil, reason being it emulates the quality of the first album. :thumb:

Maybe he still doesnt give a rat fuk about radio.I think it was more of a growing up album rather than an attempt at mainstream success.Wouldnt you say their previous singles from Iowa and s/t kinda followed the "NO SWEARS, MTV FRIENDLY, MTV FRIENDLY MUSIC VIDEO"?For the most part yes.Its not like they went in and recorded John Denver's next album or anything.Vermilion pt.1 and 2 have simular meanings to Prosthetics and Iowa.Its just done in a much more mature manner.People will grow out of Iowa and s/t soon.Vol.3's maturity gives it a longer run amoung people.It has a much better long term effect than their previous work.

That wasnt his beef with Korn whatsoever.His problem was that Korn puts out weak albums that lack the creativity or passion present in s/t and Life is Peachy.They go into the studio and make recycled crap that the Korn kids will gobble up.Its no longer about being a musician to them.

Honestly, I don't think any of it is radio friendly, other than Duality...well, maybe Vermilion Pt. 2, but so what?

I've heard songs from all three albums, and I like Vol 3's musicianship and mature sound better. Alot of the older stuff sounded like noise to me, not music.

So what if they didn't swear? Honestly, hearing "fuck" fifty million times in a song does not make it any better than the song that doesn't.

Honestly, I could see them doing another album, simply because, from what I can tell, Volume 3 is doing really well...why would you walk away from something that's successful?

The first two albums sounded very similar. The formula seemed to be exactly the same every time. Open with a riff from Mick, have Jim copy that, bring in Paul, rest for a second, then go insane with everyone beating on or playing something at high speeds. This may not apply to EVERY one of their older songs, but still.

The new album does not follow that pattern. In fact, aside from the low tuning, I don't think, for the most part, that Volume 3 sounds anything like the s/t or Iowa. And for guys like me, who like their music to have some melody, and be clear and concise, this was a good thing. I have actually been getting into some older Slipknot now, but I still think some of their songs are just noise.

I think that if they do another album, it needs to be on the same level as Volume 3 or better. They tried some new things, and to be honest, I think they did a damn good job of it.

I was talking to someone the other night...imagine of the members of Slipknot all had the qualities, of, say, an uber technical band like DT. Imagine what 9 guys who played with the ability of Dream Theater, but as intense as their older stuff would be? I dare say, they would blow everyone out of the water. But alas...[/Random]

I dont know,they have said that they want to walk away on a high note,they dont wanna hang around too long.They may do another album,considering they never planned to do more than 1 album when they first started.Here they are 5 years later still going.So maybe.The first time I listened to Vol.3 from top to bottom it sounded like a suicide note.It sounds like a good farewell,or a good indication that Slipknot is here to stay.It gave me both those vibes.

Anyway,videos for Vermilion pt.1 and 2 got shot this weekend.Those being my 2 favorite songs off the album,Im pretty exited to see them.

However, i one for sure really hope they do release it mainly because i want to see how they will cope with the difference to the first 2 albums.

Eh,Vol.3 is alot closer to what Slipknot was before 1999.Corey's vocal performance in the Crowz demos is very simular to the approach he uses in Vol.3.All the screaming and simple powerchords was more Ross Robinson than Slipknot.Ross really limited this band,he built a box around them as to what Slipknot should or should not sound like.I hate him.He is responsible for all that nu metal that came out and molded Slipknot into one of them.He forced them to remove their solos and made them a one dimensional band.Slipknot is now far better without him behind the boards.

Someone's not that smart I can see. How is Corey is a sellout? What, bands can't change their sound once in a while, and listen to Underoath, are you stupid.

I just paid attention to the song "Circle" and there are a ton of things going on. Strings, ambient sounds, stuff like that. If that's most/or all of him, it's great stuff. One great track out of...30 or 40 doesn't really justify him being there IMO, but it's a good start :thumb:

I'm tired of people thinking the two Percussionists are wasted members, because they're not. If you listen, the really fast-paced blasting and cymbol crashing comes from Joey the drummer, while the more syncopated, rhythmic percussive force comes from those two guys. They sound awesome with the agressive guitars.

The JoZ
08-25-2004, 01:24 AM
The extra percussion and bass in this band is more about feel than about what you can hear, at least on the older stuff.

In Vol 3, you can actually pick out, to an extent, who's playing what...except Sid...off the top of my head, I'm not sure he's actually DOING anything on this album...which is ironic because Joey was quoted as saying "You can hear everything...the DJ..."

Where is he? Hm? I found Craig, now where is Sid?
