Yeah, the two percussionists (Pinoccio and the clown) have a small part in some songs and nobody knows what pinhead have been doing the whole time. Anyone likes Mate Feed Kill Repeat? I like the songs Gently and Confessions very much on that album.

Two percussionists are DickFace/Pinoccio and the "Clown" did some small parts and professional rhythm of the songs like Psychosocial and People = Sh*t... That's the one i agree about! Like you Woutjinho, same with me, i don't know what was pinhead was doing during Performance Live Stage.. It's so weird to find him with Slipknot and he's not that evolved with the band.. Strange! Never heard of Mate Feed Kill Repeat?! I'll listen to the albums anyway what you wanted us to listen to: "Gentry" "Confessions"! -Feidz

tbh im bored out of my fucking mind so i just decided to look thru old slipknot forums, and yall are fukken stupid. craig, "pinhead" is the sampler for the band; he makes live performances work, he makes everything sound like the actual song. have yall never even heard of samplers??????

Glad you are here to re-affirm the stereotype most people have of Slipknot fans. The dumb meathead jock bro who has to resort to insults and profanity to get his point across, bravo!

That being said... I must admit Slipknot was kind of a guilty pleasure for me. I never really got into the debut album, but Iowa and Vol. 3 were a pretty big deal back in the day and i regurarly give them a spin. Especially Vol. 3 which finally showed some growth for the band thanks due to Rick Rubin's production job. They seemd to move away from the nu-metal template and finally injected some much needed diversity with that particular record. After that i got into lot's of other bands and i lost track of them and "All Hope is Gone" and "5: The Gray Chapter" totally passed me by.

I did purchase "We Are Not Your Kind" recently for a bargain price and i must say i was quite impressed. This might be the best album they have done since "Vol. 3". Plenty of cool riffing but i also like how the electronic elements are brought more to the forefront. It's really the most diverse records of their career and even if you don't like them i'd urge everyone to give it a chance. I'd given up on Slipknot long ago but based on their last record i might have to review my opinion.

I've been listening to Slipknot since I first heard a rough mix of Eyeless on a free CD attached to an issue of Kerrang! magazine & I'm not afraid to admit I've been a fan ever since. I like the music, the visual presentation & the overall creativity the band has displayed over the course of their career. I understand why many metal fans may have an issue with them...but that's their choice...the same way its my choice to listen to them.

Never liked them not one bit. I Don't know they start aggressive and then they go like.........Mehh.

 

When it comes to Nu Metal Mushroomhead and Mudvayne are better bands than them.

 

Just my opnion of course

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
