Product Description

Product Description

Hailing from the 'middle of nowhere'- Des Moines, Iowa - SLIPKNOT are a true phenomenon of modern Metal.Fortified with an arsenal of blistering music saturated with screams, drums, searing riffs, sampling, scratches and melody, Slipknot's music runs the scale from eerily thought-provoking to utterly terrifying. Already hailed as a landmark in Metal music, their self-titled debut is now close to Platinum status in the UK (over 280,000 shipped), while their second album 'Iowa' made an even bigger impact. Heavier and even more uncompromising, it debuted in the UK album charts at Number 1 (shipping Gold on release) and capped it with a debut sold-out UK Arena tour which spawned their ground-breaking 'Disasterpieces' DVD release. With their third album - 'Vol 3' - the one the doubters said would never see the light of day - the band demonstrated their seemingly innate ability to connect with existing fans (affectionately dubbed "maggots") while pushing the limits of the genre in all directions. Another UK Top 5 and Gold album 'Vol 3' has gone on to retain the sales level achieved by 'Iowa', a rare feat in this digitally-ravaged music business. While Nu-Metal (a genre Slipknot were unfairly tagged with) has long since gasped it's last breath, Slipknot have proved that they really are in a field of one. Now the Grammy Award winning nontet are back with their fourth album, 'All Hope Is Gone', recorded this spring in Slipknot's home state and co-produced by the band and Dave Fortman (Evanesence), mixed by Colin Richardson (Machine Head).All Hope is Gone is more of a statement than a record. Corey Taylor comments, "Every album we have made is a statement about that space in time. I think this era is the most mature, most beautiful and the most powerful. We have made an album that will show the road behind, the road ahead, and where we are as men. I think it's the best thing I've ever made. And I challenge anyone to prove me wrong."

5.0 out of 5 stars Different, but still phenomenal! Aug. 26 2008
Format:Audio CD
While Slipknot isn't exactly a metal band, their importance to the scene is undeniable. The great thing about them is that they never try to be something other than Slipknot; there's a real genuine quality to everything they do. Their self-titled debut and follow-up effort, Iowa, were both great, heavy, fast records, while Vol. 3 introduced more influences and experimentation. All Hope Is Gone keeps the train moving. Glimpses of their old thrashy-style sections are more prominent here than on Vol. 3, but so are the radio rock choruses. Comparisons to Taylor's other band, Stone Sour, seem to be abundant but, I find, without particular merit as this album is still Slipknot through and through. Being their most accessible album, this is a great starting point for anyone looking to get into this iconic group. Being a long time fan, I can say that the 4 year wait between albums was definitely worth it. The bonus content is excellent as well, with 3 excellent, cleaner songs as well as a very artistic making-of segment directed by Slipknot's brilliant Shawn Crahan. Not to mention the fact that this special edition is cheaper than the standard edition (at the time of my purchase and review)! The bottom line is that anyone and everyone needs to own this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Slipknot Album (if you are an open minded rock fan) Aug. 26 2008
By Carlos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Updated on 12/27 with a slightly more objective comments.

Disclaimer: If you are a music fan whose listens to a particular genre (i.e., metal ) you are going to feel disappointed. Specifically, if you are one of the Slipknot fans who consider Iowa to be Slipknot's best album you will definitely hate this one. However, if you like rock music in general (For example, I listen to anything from Radiohead to Slayer) then you will really appreciate this album.

Although I'm hard pressed not to pick sides and choose a favorite album, I can say that I've been listening to this album as much as I did with their self-titled debut (the one that made me a Slipknot fan to begin with). Everyone has different musical preferences and tastes, so I can understand why people who predominantly listen to "metal" would prefer Iowa (given that it's currently the band's heaviest release). Given that I listen to a much more larger scope of music genres, I found Iowa to be be on the one-dimensional side. To the dislike of many fans, with Vol. 3, the band made a drastic change in their music, incorporating solos, adding more melodic choruses, and varying the tempo of the music in the whole album and within songs. At the time of its release I was a bit shocked at the new direction of the band. However, now I understand that it was all part of the natural evolution of the band and a stepping stone to All Hope is Gone. With the new album, Slipknot has been able to capture the best elements of all their previous albums while maintaining flow/structure through all the songs. They have continue to expand their sound and grow musically, which any music fan in general should greatly appreciate.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the album. Sept. 4 2008
By Terry Mesnard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
You know exactly the album I'm talking about. The one that all bands who last longer than one or two albums go through. The one that signals a kind of change, possibly. But also one that does something as old as time itself: divides fans, but also attracts new fans, like me.

While I share a similar taste in music, Slipknot hasn't always been for me. A lot of people like their thrash songs, whereas I need a bit more diversity. And so while I've listened to their previous albums, enjoyed particular songs, I've never had the patience to listen to a whole album. Until now.

All Hope is Gone feels, in some ways, a culmination of everything that's come before; the sometimes melodic nature of Subliminal Verses, the pounding nature of their earlier work in Iowa, with, yes, maybe a smidgen of Stone Sour on the side. The thing is, when Slipknot isn't trying to pound you silly with their music for a dozen or so songs, they can be quite enjoyable.

For me, All Hope is Gone picks up right as "Psychosocial" comes into play. This song, the album version which rocks so much more than the "radio-friendly" version released as a single, exemplifies their nature perfectly: precision trash metal, with an actual melodic hook and a melody that carries through.

But the diversity continues, with "Gehenna" verging into atmospheric territories that sounds reminiscient of a heavier/more technical Korn. And "Vendetta"'s rousing anthem chant of "Are you ready for the time of your life," answered by shouts...perfect live material at shows. Then, of course, there's the Slipknot ballad (how surprising is that?) "Snuff," the song which will invariably have critics calling it a Stone Sour song with heavier drumming.

Don't get me wrong; there's still plenty of thrash songs with the barking vocals and the precision drumming, pounding submission into your head. It's just that there's more here than that. This is the first Slipknot album in which I believe Slipknot has found their niche. They've found a way of distancing themselves from similar acts that stretches beyond wearing masks (which, as an aside, are much better than their previous ones).

So we come full circle. This album will possibly be a divisive one for some fans. But I believe it shows growth, maturity and a willingness to look beyond one song played twelve different ways. Your appreciation may very, but I like this new Slipknot.

Songs to listen to:

"Gematria (The Killing Name)"
"Psychosocial"
"Gehenna"
"This Cold Black"
"Snuff"

5.0 out of 5 stars Honestly, their best album Oct. 23 2008
By robby n. wakeley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't know so many people are saying "This sounds too much like Stone Sour." While I love both Slipknot and Stone Sour and am a hardcore fan of both bands, this is still truely slipknot. You've got to give Corey Taylor credit, he continues to scream and sing incredibly. You would think his vocals would've given out from doing this for at least 10 years, but they really haven't. I think the reason people say it sounds like Stone Sour much more than Slipknot is because there's a lot more singing in this album than the previous ones. However, every song is pure slipknot. No one deserves to ever call them sell-outs or any bull like that. Some songs take some getting used to, but the highlights in the album are worth going through every song multiple times.

Execute(N/A)

Gemetria(The Killing Name)-9.0/10
Favorite lines in this song: "What if God doesn't care?" and "We will burn your cities down." This utterly proves Slipknot hasn't changed, this song is really heavy thrown in with some really nice screams.

Sulfur-9.5/10
-Really catchy chorus and I love the wah on the guitars during
the verse, it's something abstract for Slipknot and they pulled it off. Great guitar work from Jim & Mick, and a nice solo.

Psychosocial-9.0/10
-This song has a lot of potential because it has a hard verse for the
metalheads and a really soft chorus for the grunge people. However, I had a hard time interpreting the lyrics to this song, but I guess it leaves a nice gap for interpretation.

Dead Memories-10/10
-My favorite song off the album, by far. I really believe this song will
get tons of more people into Slipknot, and it's a radio-friendly song with all singing, but not too soft. It's truely awesome how the verse breaks down intro triplets the second time around.

Vendetta-9.0/10
-One Word. Drumming. Oh My God. Double-Bass in this song is crazy. Joey Jordison really shows what he's got in this song, I'll tell ya. The verse feels really catchy too with clean vox from Corey. Really good song.

Butcher's Hook-6.5/10
-Only song I don't particularly care for. The verse is cool and all, but the chorus sounds forced and repetitive along with most of lyrics throughout.

Gehenna-9.5/10
-Vintage Slipknot. I LOVE the whole "stalking" theme in this song. It's funny because Corey can write ballads and songs like these too, really though, this is by far my favorite creepy song by Slipknot. That high vocal note in the chorus always gets me.

This Cold Black-9.0/10
-My favorite head-banger off the cd. I've been playing guitar for 3 and 1/2 years, and I still had no idea what Jim was doing during the kickass solo, it sounds like dj scratches, I considered it was from Sid, but it was still the guitar, freakin' awesome.

Wherein Lies Continue-8.0/10
-A really good chorus, always leaves me feeling powerful afterwards for some reason. I like the "Thou Shalt Not" in the beginning too.

Snuff-10/10
-I just about cried the first time I heard this song, it leaves goosebumps and your heart aching. It has a sense of sadness mixed with the will to never give up.

All Hope Is Gone-8.0/10
-I thought the first main parts of the song sound really jumbled and out there, but I found the chorus catchy with all the combination screaming.

GET THIS ALBUM!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars a disasterpiece Aug. 28 2008
By g double - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
the only thing that "vol.3" lacked was its aggressiveness. "all hope is gone" brings that back to the table. songs like "gematria" and "vendetta" are by far the heaviest songs you're gonna hear from the band."snuff" is a great acoustic while "gehenna" is sludgy and moody. "psychosocial" is pure classic slipknot while "sulfur" is very stone sour esque. what makes this album better than "vol.3" is that the band is much more tighter. this time around when it came to making the record, they were much more focused than on "vol.3" (if you recall, during the making of vol.3 rick had to sit all the members down and get them to get along because none of them weren't speaking to one another) and got right to buisness. dave fortman did a great job with the production on this album. i didn't think that he'd do as good as rick..but he did. a disasterpiece they have made once again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Growth Can Be Painful Sept. 12 2008
By purerockfury - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This being Slipknot's 4th album of a career nearing 10 years, they are reaching that point where what they as a band call "progression" runs the risk of being called "selling out" by their fans who loved them from the word "go". 20 years ago, my friends and I slapped the "sell out" tag on more than a few bands (Metallica being the biggest offender of our youth). So, I have to wonder if this album will be Slipknot's transition album that leads them to that inevitable fork in the road where they progress beyond their core fans or run the risk of becoming stale. It seems to be a very thin tightrope to walk for every band, especially in the genre metal where fans can turn into foes overnight.

With all of that in mind, I can see the aspects of "All Hope Is Gone" that might make some of Slipknot's original fans angry or disinterested. Compared to the all-out-fury of "Iowa" or the combination of technical mastery and melodic foreplay of "Volume 3", "All Hope Is Gone" is often more straight-forward and subdued by comparison. It is fairly evident that Slipknot is focused more on writing songs first rather than taking a multitude of riffs and building a great song around them. In this case, for me, the approach works well.

What I can sympathize with those disenchanted by this album about is that the singles on this album are clear, present and obviously crafted for radio and mainstream exposure. Granted, I think "Psychosocial" is a very powerful song as far as singles are concerned, but some of the softer stuff on this album can get a little too soft at times. At this point, I like most of it, but I can see why others might not.

For those seeking the Slipknot of old, "All Hope Is Gone" is bookended by two mega-tracks that are as brutal and violent as anyone could ever want, especially the finale which is the perfect rallying cry for this time in our history. Much of this album is still very good, but I do wish they would have explored more of the technical aspects of the last album, as things get to be a tad formulaic at times.

Personally, I think "All Hope Is Gone" meets most of the expectations and anticipation that has heaped upon this album prior to its release. I think that in time, a good amount of people that are initially turned off by this album will find plenty to like about it.
