Slipknot Metal for Maggots
We Are Not Your Kind
The band from Iowa has shaped the extreme metal genre in this millennium like hardly any other. Especially the crazy characters with their constantly evolving masks as well as the spectacular live show (among other things with the clown standing on an elevated platform and beating up garbage cans) caused a sensation. But of course the music has also set new impulses, combining gritty, hard-hitting modern metal with catchy vocal melodies. Speaking of vocals: With Corey Taylor (also Stone Sour), Slipknot have one of the world's best frontmen in their ranks, whom Anthrax, among others, have already tried to poach. The immense success of the band led to the fact that they have even created their own festival tour ("Knotfest") since 2019.
