Product Description


Right from the introductory shriek and grind of "(515)," you know Slipknot are deadly serious about making a real heavy metal album. Iowa is intimidating in its unforgiving heaviness. Produced to perfection by wunderkind Ross Robinson, it takes the best of Slayer as a starting point. "People = Shit," "The Heretic Anthem," and "New Abortion" are relentless and wholly brutal, but this is no mere thrash. "Disasterpiece" features a weird, hypnotic riff, while "Left Behind" comes across like a duet between Alice in Chains' Layne Staley and Slayer's Tom Araya. The rerecorded "Gently" builds slowly from industrial atmospherics to a punishing explosion of noise. The title track (also old and formerly known as "Killers Are Quiet") is a deeply unsettling heavy-metal "Midnight Rambler." Frontman Corey Taylor claims to have performed it naked and bleeding from self-inflicted wounds, which isn't hard to believe. This masterfully constructed collection is painfully raw and utterly compelling. --Dominic Wills

Product Description

Iowa, the follow-up to the groundbreaking self-titled debut album, turned hard rock and metal on its head with its aggression and brutal sounds. It remains a classic 10 years later and this release celebrates this one of a kind album cycle.

Iowa is certified Platinum and Rolling Stone said: "Iowa is not just the first great record of the nu-metal era - it's better than that."

The album spawned the singles "Left Behind" and "My Plague" plus Slipknot classics "People=Shit," "The Heretic Anthem" and "Disasterpiece."

The 10th Anniversary Special Edition features 2 CDs and 1 DVD. It includes the original Iowa album plus a bonus remix, the audio from the legendary "Disasterpieces" concert filmed in London in 2002. The DVD includes a brand new hour long film by the M. Shawn "Clown" Crahan that documents the chaotic Iowa cycle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good July 26 2005
By Joe
Format:Audio CD
I like this cd a lot, but i can see why some people hate it or say it isnt music. These guys i can say from experiance have an uncomparble live show, nothing rocks like it, i saw then with the likes of Unearth, Killswitch.engage. What people have to realize is that you cant keep on comparing them to like pantera or metallica or any other old metal band because they simply are not pantera or metallica they are slipknot. and for everyone who says Joey is an alright drummer...... get your head checked, He is one of the fastest drummers in metal history, and just because slipknot has two other percussionists does not mean you can take away from the talent that joey does have. If you want to hear Joey, listen to the murderdolls, his other band that are not like slipknot at all. Also check out his solo from the DVD Disasterpieces you can download it from anywhere so check it out and see if you still think he is bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars HEAVY STUFF!!! Nov. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is definatly one of my favorite albums of all time!!!
1. (515) - A strange song;lots of screaming and strange noises 3/10
2. People=S**t - heavy, energetic song.. one of my favorites cause i love to headbang to it =) 9/10
3. Disasterpiece - i love the lyrics.. i dont really know why.. great song all in all.. 9/10
4. My Plague - awesome, awesome song; corey taylor loves to use the "eff" word in this song 10/10
5. Everything Ends - I LOVE THIS SONG!! the tune can get kind of dull at some points, but it is your average slipknot 10/10
6. The Heretic Anthem - very evil; corey uses 666 about a million times in his most satanic voice, confusing lyrics, i still like though! 9/10
7. Gently - i like the one from M.F.K.R better, but oh well.. its still good 8/10
8. Left Behind - my favorite song on the album. i love the lyrics, the tune, everything about the song i like.
9. The Shape - this is an ok song... for some reason, the songs 9-12 never really appealed to me 7/10
10. I Am Hated - This is a pretty good song.. the lyrics are good.. corey taylor does some neat screaming during the chorus.. or was that on The Shape.. hmm.... 8/10
11. Skin Ticket - long and dull.. thats all i have to say 5/10
12. New Abortion - for some reason, this songs sounds the same as 9 and 10... good song though... 8/10
13. Metabolic - i like this song, especially the beginning.. its heavy and... well... AWESOME
14. Iowa - this song i long... but i like the guitar in it.. how it stays the same for a minute or two and then the drums come in.. and then everyone starts playing and singing.. and eventually becoming a sick and twisted song... 9/10

4.0 out of 5 stars SLIPKNOT DOES IT AGAIN May 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
This cd isn't as good as the first but still great. It is kind of the same thing as the last album: screaming, loudness, and etc. The cd still rocks though. The vocals seem to have matured a bit and gotten a bit deeper. Buy this cd!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An album to pave the way! May 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
This alubm has tracks on it that will make you think "Hey these guys are really angry at society" or something along those lines. With their song The heretic Anthem will make you think that they are satanic but in fact a heretic is a non believer or an Atheist. The Song People= S... is a song that will build up your adrenaline and won't let you go until you are filled with so much you want to start moshing your bedroom walls. Disaster pieces which talks about slitting throats shows their anger once again. With songs like these you should listen to this cd when angry at someone they will help you cope and make you feel that you can relate. Though the music is not has good as the first cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars the cream of the nu-metal crop Dec 28 2001
Format:Audio CD
When I listened to Slipknot's first release I was drawn in by the excellent musical assault, but totally turned off by the amatuer lyrics. The old album sounded like Corey throwing a tantrum while the other guys poured their bowels out trying to make some quality metal.
Well, things have changed.
Slipknot have unleashed upon the world the heaviest, darkest most beautifully ugly record this year. Corey's lyrics are absolutely top notch and they reflect on themes of commerciality, misanthropia, violence, madness, apocalypse etc, but this time they do it intelligently!
The music is absolutely brutal (though I have heard more abrasive, but why carp). The band has not lost their sense of melody or adventure and they invest their crunching riffs and percussion with industrial noise and clearly sung vocals.
I admit it to the disdain of all of my hardcore and metal friends, this album has made me a maggot! All hail Slipknot!
