Personally, I love Slipknot. I saw them live in 2009 at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, and to be truthful I was REALLY disappointed. I thought Corey lacked the conviction live that he does on CD's, but I've been told by everyone else that's seen them that they were fantastic, so I'm thinking of giving them a second chance live. Maybe they just had a bad night? Clown wasn't there when I saw them, Corey said he had an emergency and had to fly back home.
Also, I'd like to point out that, in my opinion, All Hope Is Gone is the WORST album ever made. MFKR, Slipknot, Iowa, Volume 3, all amazing Cd's. I don't know, I think it sounds too much like Stone Sour (before anyone says anything, I KNOW they're both Corey). Not a fan of Stone Sour, but there's my two cents.
Stay sic MAGGOTS!
