First listen says it's freaking awesome and the samples/scratches are top notch. Always wanted them to do something like this. I hope there's more variation on the album, but on its own, I'm impressed.

I'm relieved that the band resorted back to their Self Titled/Iowa sound. Honestly, I was expecting Stone Sour 2.0

haven't liked slipknot in like 5 years but if I was still in 8th grade and angry at everyone around me this would be awesome. agreed though song is the best they've done since IOWA. unfortunately, Gray's death might have sparked something in these guys to go absolutely ape shit

X-post from the AHIG thread:

so...I'm ok with this, I guess

Started off amazing with Craig's production, then I kinda got worried at the bare-bones drumming kicked in and oh fucking lord Corey with his HOGAB vocals sticking out like a sore thumb. But after a few minutes, I finally got into the groove of things and thought it was aight.

I really hope this is a black sheep song though. If the whole album is like that, it'll be a 3-3.5, no doubt.

Song isn't bad but it's lacking in all kinds of areas, feels like a song written by minimalists. They sound angry, agreed, but haven't they always? Like ALWAYS? Even on their last album they still had several pissed off sounding tracks.

Anyway, I'm mildly interested in where this goes but this song isn't really doing much for me, they can do better.

Sure they matured on Vol. 3 and All Hope Is Gone but that maturity was starting to morph into Stone Sour 2.0 on All Hope and I was worried that what they did next would steer toward a more commercial sound after the attention they got with Sulfur and Snuff so this track is a welcome return to their old sound. Iowa was their best anyway, one of the most pissed off albums ever. It might not contain all of the experimental sounds of Vol. 3 but its still better.

Couple things I hear.

Glad that we are reminded Sid is still in the band.
The drummer doesn't completely suck.
Corey sounds Ok.

On the other hand

Production sucks. It sounds "murky" with no bass whatsoever.
I feel like in Slipknot Corey reuses the same 60 words.
Riff is weak.
Band sounds like they are trying so hard to do a 180 from the super clean overproduced sound of AHIG.

wow this band was finished i thought after their drummer left and the bassist died but they went back to being interesting, too bad i've grown past the "angsty nu metal/hate life girl" phase i was in many years ago.

I agree. The song is typically them in every way possible, but i feel that it's me who's grown up and maybe won't be into that kind of stuff anymore

just cause you're out of a certain phase doesn't mean you can't appreciate new music

^i dont think its a matter of growing up as it is for some people certain music is just a phase until
they find what they are comfortable with. for example ill use Prog to some people Prog might be part
of a phase then they get into punk which is more to their liking.

it was the same with artists like Korn, Slipknot, Mudvayne and that for me. when i was a young girl in
the early 2000's that was my shit but then when a went to HS then college years later i starting
getting more into older metal artists which was more to my liking along with a few other genre's (like
punk,alternative and industrial/electronic) and i kinda moved away from the "nu metal" of the 90's.
hey if thats what your comfortable with keep listening to it

It's not a matter of growing up, it's the case of no longer being able to appreciate a certain style of music anymore, maybe because you don't hear the same thing you heard when you first fell in love with it, or maybe because you listen for other characteristics instead

Well it's personal experience too. After attempting to broaden my music taste, I never looked at a lot of the bands the same way when they released new material, yet I liked their previous stuff I had already heard

i think it comes down to people thinking they're too old/good for music they used to enjoy due to embarrassment from peers or whoever. i could care less for liking it.

^ i mean there is some embarrassment for liking soulless music like that takes over the radio in the pop genre. but i find slipknot far from soulless from hearing guys like COrey and Joey in interviews compared to big name artists that all say the same thing, like programmed robots

Is the problem really that you feel that your tastes are too good for Slipknot, or is it because
you're incapable of being nostalgic for things?

I've got a My chemical Romance album at 4.5, so I couldn't care about embarrassment or whatever. But seriously Tres, have you never listened to something you havent heard in a lifetime and all of a sudden hear different things, things annoy you?

I thought it sounded interesting on the first and second listen, but the blandness really starts to show through around the 4th listen.

Only heard it once cos I'm not too bothered to make an effort to listen to it again. It won't even be the best track on the album, so I have some faith

Yum, those scratches in the chorus are sweet. As a HUGE fan of Vol. 3 I'm happy about this song but I hope this is one of the weaker songs on the album or whatever

nobody talks about gematria on the last album, I think it's a very good song. That new one is ok. Nothing shameful about it. Just your average slipknot song. Good but nothing special.

Just listened to it for the first couple of times, thought it was one of the least spectacular SK songs I've heard. Sounds like a more restrained track from one of the first two albums, nothing much there to grab on-to. Like the few seconds with the blast beats, the rest, meh. Drumming doesn't compare to Jordison's. This would've been the second most forgettable song on AHIG imo.
