Slipknot  


The scourge of "true metal" fans the world over, Slipknot took America by storm with the release of their self-titled album in 1999 (actually their second following a less-well-known release three years prior), the album racking up unprecedented sales figures for an independent label and without major radio airplay. Slipknot's style is undeniably nu-metal, but more intense than most in the field, as they actually have more old-school metal sensibilities than they are often given credit for (those who label this band another Korn clone, or just another nu-metal bandwagoner, are really missing the mark). The band followed up Slipknot two years later with Iowa, an equally intense album, if a shade less revolutionary, and continued to gain popularity. The following years saw some members occupy their time with other projects (Stone Sour, Murderdolls), amidst rumors that the longevity of the band was seriously in question. Recruiting renowned producer Rick Rubin, the band released Vol 3: The Subliminal Verses in May 2004. Unquestionably the band's most diverse album yet, Rubin has really brought out the best in the band, tapping into potential hinted at on the earlier albums but not realized. Though the long-term plans of the band may still not be fully known, Vol 3 stands as one of the most important releases of 2004.
