Slipknot have released their first single since 2008 and it is more business as usual than any strident leap in their sound.

But who cares when it sounds like this.

The band release their new as yet untitled album in October.

To me it just sounds like almost every one of their songs since Iowa. I remember loving Slipknot and some of Iowa was great but I got fed up of listening to the same sound over and over. Shawn's move to Dirty Little Rabbits was much more my cup of tea. It's a shame that never lasted. sad.gif

On first listen it seems to be shifting away from the mainstream heavy metal influences on All Hope Is Gone and back towards earlier material. We've come to expect huge leaps now from bands who haven't released anything in years (Queens of the Stone Age, for instance) but, as others have said, as long as the material's strong it's not a great problem to sound familiar.

Far from their best on first couple of listens but it's very much their sound. I expect there will be better tracks on the album.

More pleased just to have them back really

The Devil in I dropped last week:



Managed to combine more mature/whiny (delete as appropriate) sound of Snuff and Vermillion Pt. 2 with some major riffage. I've got high hopes for the album, which we now have artwork, a name and a tracklisting for:



01 XIX
02 Sarcastrophe
03 AOV
04 The Devil in I
05 Killpop
06 Skeptic
07 Lech
08 Goodbye
09 Nomadic
10 The One That Kills the Least
11 Custer
12 Be Prepared For Hell
13 The Negative One
14 If Rain Is What You Want
