citizen: I live about 40 minutes from where slipknot
plays and lives. I have known many of them since long before the albums,
and i must make this very clear.....CONTRARY to many of the posts on here
they are excellent musicians. If you say otherwise you simply know nothing
about instruments or musicianship. Sad sad world when a band doing new
and inventive music get bashed. They jammed for a big new years party and
i was there for it. Great music, and they will be making it for years to
come. Not as the band slipknot but in other forms. (yes they aren't going
to be together permenantly) Enuff about that. The only reason they wear
the masks is because they want to be known for their music and not who
they are. Kiss? LOL come on. Just like the average person puts on a mask
for society. They are just normal guys, making killer music. I laugh at
how some people idolize them now like rockstars....I don't condem them
however its just funny.
leftbehindisthenewwit&bleed: to the people who say they h8 slipknot,
y r u even here if u dont like slipknot? u must hav sum kind of respect
4 them to come and read an interview from them personally i dont know much
about 'metal' all i do know is i like wat i know and i know wat i like,
and i like slip i think there new album is my favorite album along with
life is peachy by korn
Leechmaster: i dont care wat ne of u jokes say about
me. i listen to real metal like fear factory, slayer, sepultura, soulfly,
pantera, the list goes on. not poser metal like slipknot.
soulwound: congratulation, iowa is a bomb, death
metal rulez and long life for them
albtras: Slipknot is the best f**king band around
and I agree that IOWA is a much heavier album that the first. Also Mick
shaw: i agree with the first comment. joeyjordinson
is the best f**king drummer ever. he amazes me and slipknot is the best
Vo0Do0: slipknot kicks ass, they are the best
metal band in the world, from a drummer's point of view it doesn't get
UK (SIC) DUDE: Iowa ain't what ur expecting but it shows
a much more experienced band and yes agreeing with jim the have evolved!!!
Leechmaster F**K U (SIC) 4EVA!
SLIPKNOTQUEEN841: SLIPKNOT IS SO FU*KIN AWESOME! iowa is
so awesome! i agree with SICFAITH - SLIPKNOT 4-EVER!
SICFAITH: Leechmaster...F*CK YOU... Slipknot rules
! Mick nr.7 is MASTER ! IOWA is a bit different from the "ussual" Slipknot
sound, but hey... listen to it ones and think :"HUH?" listen to it twice
and say:"Let me hear that one more time..." 3th time, you're infected with
the new (sic)ness! SLIPKNOT 4-ever ! Stay (sic)...
Leechmaster: Slipknot has like 2 whole good songs.
besides that they suck.
A metal fan: In fact SlipKnoT isn't black metal or
death metal, they're just metal, the new sound, i love new things that's
all, the things change just get it... Thank you Rocknworld.com and all
the people that have been here
A metal fan: I was talking about their music is the
same thing, we need a change and I think that's SlipKnoT
A metal fan: you are right DusksEmbrace123, they're
brutal death metal bands, but Cradle of Filth is Black Metal and of course
DusksEmbrace123: "Morbid Angel, Deicide, Six Feet Under,
that is very black, and we know it" just to clarify, none of those bands
are black metal. You've named all death metal bands, who are infact very
good, with the exeption of six feet under who is infact repetitive
Tony: Dude, this interview wus the sh*t! its
so sic to see that slipknot are real people and not monsters, i wish i
could've been that guy interviewing Jim.
Jesus Timaure: F@CK YOU ALL, I AM THE KING, GO AHEAD!
a metal fan: Thanks to rocknworld.com for this Inteview,
have been very cool, thank you very much and congratulations for this Website,
it's so cool and very educative, thanks for all the people that work in
this website... It is very good to see that SlipKnoT has the feet on the
earth, the humility is a quality of very few, and when I was reading this
interview and when I saw how Jim behaved, its gives me since a great satisfaction,
now I know that I am fan of a band that is worth the pain... This space
is called FAN SPEAKS, and it's to give a opinion about the article... I
can say that this interview is cool, but nobody's been saying somethin
about the article i am the first... In spite of everything... for all the
people that have been writing your opinion, thank you very much (FOR ALL),
it's cool to see how are you wasting your time in blame a band that is
different, and isn't the musical style that you like... To you: (if there
are girls or sensitive people, please excuse my explicit and vulgar vocabulary,
it's just a reciprocal thing) Hey Anthrax F@ck you man! Are you happy now?
Why are you in here bothering? you are just a little sh!tty girl, but the
point is that is an insult calling you like that band "Anthrax", Slipknot
is just the best band in the world at this moment, that's all, and this
place is for followers of the band, or rockers, you are just a techno-fan,
this isn't your place, so GET THE F@CK OUT HERE, didn't you read the title
"FAN SPEAKS" it's clear... I am sick of the same old sh*t all the time,
and now Slipknot came up, and I enjoy their music, and you can say that
metal is a sh*t if you are a MACHO MAN fan you know, Disco Music, Anthrax,
go away man! Support your music and let us "THE FANS" talk about our favorite
band, get the f@ck away from here, that's all folks! It's that simple...
And d3vnull, you are so empty... Black Metal or Death Metal are other things,
Morbid Angel, Deicide, Six Feet Under, that is very black, and we know
it, but they are the same old sh*t, they are so monotonous, same voices,
same rhythms, never change, who cares? You are just a guy that says "alive
the death" thoughtless... We need a change and that's Slipknot, they are
the band in this moment, they are evolution it's a new movement, the things
change. I LOVE THE ROCK MUSIC IN ALL ITS EXPRESSION, and the music needs
an evolution, we need it, and now we got it with Slipknot. JUST LISTEN
TO IOWA THAT WILL BE THE PROOF OF WHAT I AM SAYING, THIS IS THE METAL EVOLUTION...
Anthrax, listen to your music, you know Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys,
they are your gods... Shinji, and all the others... go and eat sh*t...
Slipknot are just metal no more no less, forget it if you think they are
pop, the chorus have been all the time in the rock, and now the rap music
is too into this, cool music... Rock rules, Metal rules, I LOVE METAL and
i love everything called Metal my local bands and SlipKnoT because they
are METAL!!! If you blame me, I am right... the truth hurts... METAL RULES
F@CK YOU ALL anthrax, d3vnull, shinji, metallica7, you sucks, go away!
go work! MUTHAF@CKERS
DusksEmbrace123: I personally despise new metal, it's uninspired
pop culture. Death and Black metal hold enough origionality, and are heavy
enough to sustain my interests. Slipknot is always a band who is thought
of with mixed opinions. Their either loved or hated, or aren't considered
anything special. I personally considered them new metal Sh$t and passed
them off. After seeing them at ozzfest, which sucked by the way, and hearing
IWOA recently they've gained a little of my respect. Their new album is
creative, and good in my opinion.They've even spawned a rip off band, a
la mushroom head, if slipknot continues with their new image and doesnt
stray back to their first LP i'll consider myself a fan.
evilchris: Slipknot is awesome.
metallica7: well said
Anthrax: Hey D angel... how do you know they dont
lip snyc? Their wearing masks!! By the way, your line about respect for
them "going out and doing it"? Well sweetie, they just cancelled their
tour, so what respect is that for their fans ? Sorry but you need to Earn
respect before you can get it
Disturbed Ångel: I think that all of you people out there
are just really stupid to bash music that is different than say Ozzy(who
is king) and Slayer(kix ass). Music has to evolve.. get outta the "my generation
was the best" and start to experience more! i'm 15 and agree that Slipknot
is one of the better bands out there right now. they r raw, they r in your
face and the r TALENTED. they dont lip sync like n*sync or brintey spears
who r popular for looks not talent. I feel deep real respect for slipknot
because they come from a city where ice rinks and shopping centers are
ruled by posers. Corey is an amazing vocalist and Joey is one of the best
Drummers on the face of this sh*tty planet and they and the rest of the
band deserve the kinda respect that u would give the kings of heavy metal
for goin out there and doin what they do because they enjoy it and not
for anyone one else.. if u dont like what i'm sayin then GO F*CK YOURSELF
and e-mail me if u got balls big enuf to bitch at me personally: firstname.lastname@example.org
JIMEE Ikari: I would listen to Slipknot, if they were
real metal. I heard that "Iowa" was supposed to be one of the heaviest
of all time in music. I heard some of their songs from Morpheus and it
didn't sound like Reing in Blood, or anything near as good as they claimed.
They have the spirit of an excellent metal band but the music is not. Call
Slipknot what you want...except Heavy Metal. P.S- Shinji Ikari is kool
Anthrax: no sh!t d3vnull! All they can post is
oooooo Slipfart rules and i've yet to hear just how they rule! Someone
said it a couple posts eariler ... their just the Backstreet Boys in drag
d3vnull: If only SlipPop could take the Britney
Spears influence out of their music and start rocking, they could be an
awesome band. But f*ck 'em anyways, I say Slipknot are nothing but Fear
Factory wannabes with sucky rap beats added over it. And to all of you
ignoramuses who say SlipPop is the most twisted band out there... Well
lemme just tell you that if you think a SlipPop show is wild, you wouldn't
last a second in a Cannibal Corpse or Dimmu Borgir mosh pit. LONG LIVE
METAL! LONG LIVE HEAVINESS! DOWN WITH POP! Now that's it for today's rant...
Anthrax: P.S. I dislike them not for the music
and the backdrop... its over the fact that their music is garbage. As a
musician and Dj on the west coast, I can state this as fact. Yeah maybe
little angry 14 yr olds dig it but they'll be back playing in bars again
in 8 months
Anthrax: ChuckbyDeception you pathic little turd
you off your soapbox yet? You sound like a bandwagon jumper yourself. Whats
a matter, you outgrown limp bixkit and now your moving onto something a
little more "mainstream" for your tastes? Why not support a band thats
going to be around a while instead of this worthless crap they call slipknot.
And if you knew your music instead of spewing garbage from your mouth and
post, GWAR did this act years before Slipsh!t and are still preforming
it today,so in a sense dumb ass slipcrap are just playing a old gig. So
like in your post about the movie sets, this isnt a new act so hmmm slipsnot
just are not that orginal as your stating. That bunghole if you knew your
music history, Alice Cooper was the first "SHOCK ROCKER" in the early 70's
for dweebs like Manson and Slipknot are just following a trend. Hmmm in
my book thats a bangwagon follower to me. Real orginal. Spo when you have
a valid point, come back and post it. If not, keep your useless comments
to yourself, and if your lucky, maybe those other losers in masks Insane
Clown posse will tour with Slipuseless and maybe they'll sell 50 tickets
ChuckbyDeception: This makes me sad. First off, to all the
people who traded in their Marilyn Manson shirts to follow the new bands
with the makeup and the costumes, suck my C0CK. Those kids (a.k.a. goth
kids, freaks, etc.) need to get a life and stop using macabre clothing
and music that actually contains someones pain and frustration to get them
noticed at the mall. Fvck mall-core kids. To Anthrax and the rest who bash
slipknot - congratulations on attacking something original. That's right
original. Band's like slipknot and mudvayne are doing something NEW in
the metal genre. You dislike them just because of the make-up or the back-drop
that they use for the set. What a bunch of sh!t? How would you like to
go see a movie where they chose not to use any sets, or make-up or costumes
so that they could be "real movies"? It would be terrible. That is what
you "hey-look-masks-must-be-kiss" d1ck smugglers are asking for. Go back
to listening to your hair metal and your hick-rock. For those of you who
like Slipknot now, liked them before, or will like them in the future -
rock on. There is no right or wrong reason to like music, liking it is
enough and no one can take that away from you. Besides for every kid who
jumps on the bandwagon now, there's a better chance that the record label
will keep backing the bands I like. I don't care if you don't like them,
buy their sh!t. That just means that they'll be around longer for the true
fans to enjoy.
steve the queer: I think my penis is bigger than all of
Vegetollo7: First of all, Slipknot is one of the best
progressive metal bands out there, and if anyone else out there thinks
different, they have no appreciation for the term "metal." Though I still
like their first album "Mate Feed Kill Repeat" the best, these guys will
keep on rocking. For anyone else out there who thinks that Slipknot has
sold out or is the "hip" thing to listen to now, go back underminded dream
world. Good band, I like James but favorite member is still Mick because
he is total METAL!
slipknot is eternal: slipknot is the best band! you cant even
compare them to any one else... its like when somebody askes you what kind
of music is slipknot you just say SLIPKNOT!!! i now slipknot will keep
metal alive forever slipknot will never ever fade
SLIPBIZKIT: WE BOTH SUCK
The Heretic: Slipknot is definitely one of the best
bands out there these days, right next to Staind as the most talented band.
HUH ???: use english moron
justatool: what commforts me is that i can listen
to what ever i want so that anyone can forbid me that. when i'm reading
those comments i get let's say sick! why? because many of people that said
(here) what they wnated to would forbid other people to listen to slipknot
even if they 'don't get the point' - i ask you: so what? you got your own
cd and guys from s. won;t play worse just because some ingnorants listen
to to their music. plus they send their money and s. can get better equipment
to play better and do what's ever on their minds. and you can get their
music free on net in mp3's. so who cares?
AcidGoo: Aw/ now that sux/ that's the same thing
that is happening to TooL right now/ (and many other) all those new-born-fans
tearing apart that band/ they opened their eyes for it cuz someone said
'oh it's COOL!' isn't that really f@#$ed up & spoiled
metallica7: thank you Jeff.. its good to see people
like you and LD50 understand
Goat: Why is everyone so obbsessed with how
famous this band gets? You are suppost to listen to music because you dig
it. Not because it falls in the criteria of "Cool" or "Hip". If you wanna
be a rebel, you go out and try to find bands no-one has ever heard of.
Just to be a "bad-boy". Then the other try to find Mr. Famous just to be
called "Cool". Either or, you are listening to the cash register, not the
jeff: l.d 50's right. i get sick of all these
new school slipknot fans who see their picture in a mag and think "oh no,
here's a i havin't heard of" so the go out & but their cd, and put
it on their shelf right next crazy town & pappa roach. damn suburban-metal
fans will ruin everything. they would know a REAL heavy band if it kicked
in the teeth!
L.D. 50: This sucks. I remember when Slipknot was
a respected band at this site. Now more and more people are starting to
hate them. Way too many people like them, the same thing happened to LB.
They used to be cool until all these trend followers started liking them
and then forgot about them as soon as people said f*ck em. What Slipknot
has to do is make a bad album so the trendies won't even pay attention
to them anymore and move on to another band, and us TRUE fans will still
think of them as a kick ass band.
iamsocool: are these the guys from kiss in new masks,
Anthrax: no shyt shinji, thank you! These little
pissed 14year olds in their backwards red ny hats fail to understand your
post, but its the same thing i've been trying to get across to them. These
guys are just a marketing dream is all the are. And I love all the , slipsnot
rules the world blah blah blah... ok let me ask this question... just how
do they rule?? claudia just how does slipshyt rule, what in your words
(if you can speak comman english) makes slipshyt that great? I bet you
cant even tell me other than use the "Fukk" words about 40 times in one
sentence, which by the way doesnt prove anything other then your mentality...lame
shinji: Why are Slipknot so pissed? Did Hot Topic
not sell enough of their shirts this week? Did their cd not make Billboard's
Top 40? Grow up you f*ckin wankers. You think you're so different and you
don't even realize you're just comforming. Like Slipknot is SO different
or revolutionary... You think their going against the mainstream. But what
you don't realize is that now they are the mainstream. Slipknot is POP.
CORPORATE ROCK FOR THE MINDLESS MASSES. Listen to underground music. Support
your local scene. Just because you buy their shirt at the mall and watch
their videos doesn't make you some rebel - it makes you a tool.
claudia: slipknot is the best group in the world!!f**k
it all f**k this world f**k everything that you stand for dont belong dont
exist dont give a sh*t dont ever judge me!
casey: slipnot kicks ass
people=shi*t: slipknot es la mejor banda del mundo de
todos los tiempos. Slipknot Rulez....maggots
shytsnot blows : Shytsnot rules alright, they rule the
lower bowels of a fukken urinal! These dumb ass clowns will last about
as long as those other homo rump rangers Limp bizkit, about another month.
Shytsnot is just Backdoor boys in masks anyways
Pollution248: F u c k you Greemuse you mullet loving
hippie, Slipknot rules.
Sabin26: Slipknot rules. I saw them when they made
their debut in Iowa and they ruled then and still do to this day. I've
seen them many times after and they just keep getting better and better.
LONG LIVE THE MAGGOT CORP.

Sergio: Its good to see that JIm is down to earth.

SubXavier: I like some Slipknot, and maybe I'm generalizing,
