Slipknot is from Iowa, United States and they are the biggest Nu-Metal band from it’s genre, they are filled with hatred,anger and passion. The world started to be a better place since their first full self titled album ‘Slipknot’ that got released via Roadrunner Records on the 29th of June 1999. 2 years later Slipknot came back to reign hell again with my all time favorite album ‘Iowa’, this masterpiece is filled with abomination. In 2004 they released ‘Vol. 3 Subliminal Verses’ which features the band’s anthem song ”Pulse Of The Maggots”. ‘All Hope Is Gone’ got out in the year 2008 and touches more on the instrumental side of the band, don’t worry it is still filled with rage! Latest album ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’ from 2014 is dedicated to their former bassist Paul Gray who died on the 24th of May 2010, for everyone that lost someone in their life this is the album to listen to. It is dark, heavy and really emotional.
For all the people that don’t know the band so well their fans are called ”Maggots” and all the band members have specific numbers, they also wear mask and with every album they change it. The mask shows us what is going on deep inside the member. This is their way of expressing themselves. So with that out of the way we can continue with the news!
Not let’s move on to the awesome news. It all started with the trailer that you can click on right above, they announced the documentary Day Of The Gusano on the 9th of June via their own youtube channel that is named after the band’s name. It is going to be a documentary about the band playing live on Knotfest Mexico City. It will premiere worldwide in theaters on the 6th of September this very year, as a maggot myself I can’t be more excited!
As commented by the band:
‘Day of The Gusano’ documents not only a historic Knotfest Mexico City performance from Slipknot, one of the most exciting live bands on the planet, but delves deeply into the lives of the band’s fans as well. Slipknot’s fans, better known as maggots, are essential to the band’s legacy. This highly anticipated show captures the chaos, excitement and community that has been cultivated over the past 20+ years.’
Right above is the first glimpse of how the documentary will be. It is short but just from the riff alone you will notice that the band is playing the widely known song ”Vermillion” from the album ‘Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses’, for everyone that hasn’t listened to that song I suggest that you give it a try.
