Someone mentioned when they first came across the Nine. It made me think back, and I was 13 in 1999. My brother just happened to have the album one day, something just drew me to it, I had my mom take me to Target and I bought the album and never looked back. Do you know if there were copies of the album out already that had purity still on it, cuz I could have sworn the one I bought had it.
Ahhhh, it depends. They released it June of 1999 with Purity and had to re-release it in December because of the lawsuit.
18, and mainstream media. That's one of the reasons Slipknot gets a bad rap sometimes, but if not for Slipknot I never would have found out about Heavy Metal. Now I listen to so many genres of Metal, and it's all because a 12 year old me was interested by the scary guys with masks haha
That’s pretty great! Here you are, 6 years later, open to a variety of music because of one single band :)
In answer to that question, I'm nineteen and I discovered Slipknot pretty early in my metal upbringing. I had been listening to Disturbed and I found myself liking a lot of bands that came out of that era, including Slipknot. A lot of people have compared my songwriting style to Corey's, so that may tell the influence they've had on me. What was the first Slipknot song you heard and what was your initial reaction to it?
That’s awesome! The first song I listened to was “Before I Forget”. I was scared at first because it was sudden and I ended up loving it.
I’m sorry to bring you down from your high-ass horse, but no. It sounds like SlipKnoT. Period. That’s the only fact that you can prove and make me believe without question. Music is art. Art is subjective. There is no |case dismissed| with this kind of shit. I have my opinion, you have yours, Sav does and Samm does and a fucking metalhead spider has hers. And every single one is correct. If a motherfucker says it sounds like HoGaB2 good for him. His fucking opinion. If some fuck says it sounds like a fucking Nicki Minaj song, well in that case it would be quite very stupid but still his fucking opinion. So stop saying your opinion is the only valid one. Thank. Sleep-Not out. l..l

It’s alright, I was sad for a few hours but then, I realized that I got that far. And, honestly, I would’ve never gotten that far if people hadn’t encouraged me to do so. I got far, I got into the set and saw Corey, so it’s all good in this hood, lol :)
in grade 8 i did a power point presentation on “whooping cough” and my opening slide was a photo of whoopi goldberg coughing and i was the only person who laughed at it and i couldnt start the presentation for like five minutes because i was laughing too hard at my own joke
“Your memory, it no longer makes me sad. Thinking back now, looking at all of our moments and all the times we spent, I realize that you were my perfect image of love. You made me happy and I made you happy too but for whatever reason, you walked out of my life without a goodbye. I only wish that I could’ve had enough courage to tell you how much I loved you and how much I loved that you would ask me what color to dye your hair because sometimes, I think that my text messages weren’t enough to describe my love for you. And, if I could have one person back in my life, it would be you because no matter how much you hurt me, I still want you here. I always wanted you here. You were my kulta and I was your hunaja, I just don’t know what happened to make me a stranger in your life and a memory in mines.”—I’ll always miss you texting me, “te amo” at 3AM.
the worst is having a dream where someone loves you and you can practically feel them touching you and it feels so real and then you wake up and it’s like the life is being sucked out of you and the happiness just drains out of your body and you feel empty again
It is okay to have opinions, but seriously, you ALWAYS keep complaining about Corey's mask. It was the same when it came to the 'All Hope Is Gone' mask. Can you just fucking accept that everything isn't for your own benefit? Corey made it HIS way, the way HE liked it. It is not for you, it is for HIM. P.S. His mask looks awesome. Fuck off.
SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR Says He Is 'Probably The Most Famous Person That No One's Ever Heard Of'
SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor says that the fact that he is not a household name has helped him avoid all the “crappy side effects” of being the frontman of not only one but two world-renowned metal bands.
Asked how he unplugs from his many different projects, which have included solo tours and authoring a pair of best-selling books (“Seven Deadly Sins” and “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven”), Taylor told Amelia of the 98 Rock radio station in Baltimore, Maryland: “Every once in a while, my wife and I will take a vacation. It’s pretty few and far between, because we work together. So half the reason that I’m able to do the things that I get to do is because my wife helps me do it; she’s been in band management for years, so we make a really good team.”
He continued: “You know, I don’t need a lot to recharge. Actually, one of the ways that I recharge is I come home. I spend time with my family, I hang out with my wife’s family, who I’m really, really close with. I spend time with my kids. That, to me, is unplugging and getting away from everything. ‘Cause I don’t live in Los Angeles; I still have my house in Iowa, and I have a house in Las Vegas, where most of my wife’s family lives. I have these places where I can kind of get away from everything. And I’m lucky enough to be probably the most famous person that no one’s ever heard of. So I can still go out and go grocery shopping and not get bugged. I can kind of do my thing and it’s all good. So I get all the benefits of being in the industry and doing my thing, and I don’t get any of the crappy side effects, where you never get a moment to yourself, you never get to any of these things. And I’m fine with that; I love that. I get to do all the fun stuff, all the creative stuff. I don’t get any of the… I get a little bit of it — don’t get me wrong — but I still get to do these things, because I enjoy doing them. And I think a lot of people, they hit a point in their career where they just stop enjoying it, so they start churning out crap; there’s no quality to the content. And for me, I’ve always been the guy who, I don’t do anything unless I really wanna do it. And I think that’s why my level of quality has remained up there, at least in my eyes.”
Taylor also spoke about the seemingly large number of veteran rock bands who have partaken in the reunion circuit in an attempt to cash in on revisiting their past without the benefit of great new music, or any new music at all in some cases.
"A lot of that comes down to the other side of, not only this industry, but of the lifestyle — if you get too wrapped up in the drugs or the womanizing or the hedonistic side of things," Corey said. "And you stay there. It’s okay when you’re young, but then you stay in that for too long and it sucks the life out of you. And not only that, but it sucks everything around your life out of you. So then you get to the other side, and it’s, like, ‘Well, that was a great party, but now I have nothing to show for it.’ And luckily enough, I’ve got a lot of people around me who I’ve been able to kind of channel all that energy into making sure that they’re taken care of, and that’s what keeps me together."
SLIPKNOT will release its fifth studio album and first since 2008’s “All Hope Is Gone” in October. The disc, titled “.5: The Gray Chapter”, is also the band’s first without late bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010, and drummer Joey Jordison, who was dismissed in late 2013.
