Slipknot announce new album

2019-05-16 by ButtBoy | 93 Comments
Iowa's nu-metal behemoth Slipknot have announced their long-awaited sixth full-length, We Are Not Your Kind. The announcement comes on the heels of a departure and subsequent lawsuit with ex-percussionist Chris Fehn.

The album drops August 9th, 2019. The new single/music video "Unsainted" can be found at their website:

Single rules- love the experimentation with the choir! The masks and album title/art are pretty underwhelming.

Song is pretty bad
All Out Life seemed like a step forward but guess not.

Also, lol at Taylor saying the album would be "IOWA heavy" - this is basically Stoneknot

The chorus is basically a Stone Sour throwback.

Main riff feels like ‘hey guys, this sounds like IOWA...right?’

there's no way this band could ever go back to being IOWA heavy because they arent angry kids anymore with nothing to lose. now they're rich musicians with producers and corporate bitch lasagnas controlling them.

something felt off and then I remember they've got a new drummer now, which is really telling. His aggressive fills were pretty inherent to their heavy parts and this new stuff just does not hit nearly as hard because of that.

I liked the song but this can't be compared to Iowa lol Like someone said above, Stone Knot.

The bass player's mask is sick, Corey's phantom of the opera concept is cool but why those gigantic cheeks? I dig the clown one too.

Unsainted is a catchy tune for sure. Not as heavy as Iowa, but we'll see if the other tracks from the new album are heavier. Still, the new track is already 1000x better than anything off The Gray Chapter.
Excited for the new album to drop \m/

album art is cool IMO, album title is edgy, song is cool and experimental. As for the masks, some are really cool (Jay's and Alessandro's being the best), other are exactly the same as before (Jim, Mick), while some other I really don't like, namely Corey's and Sid's

Most Slipknot singles now tend to start off with a minute or just less of pointless atmospheric building into a very a predictable/done to death riff.

No because it's like the only cool mask anymore. One guy stole his from Death Leprosy, one guy looks like hipster phantom of the opera, Corey just looks like a fat retard. These masks as a whole are hilariously bad.
