Yeah yeah, Slipknot is good and all but they get old fast. Iowa is a great c.d. but there is harder and much better stuff out there. Trust me on this, these boys from Iowa do kick ass but they're not the best. Over and out.

From: Motley Date: April 27, 2002 at 19:29
As said before....suck suck suck suck suck.........why do they even bother.....

From: PREY FOR ME Date: May 16, 2002 at 15:51
All hype, no talent. Take the masks and image away and the only people buying this album are their mothers.

From: Billy Bob Date: June 26, 2002 at 20:25
A decent effort from a bad band. The s/t album is much better, even though it itself isn't too great of an album.

From: Kim Date: July 18, 2002 at 16:32
One looks like Pinocchio. One looks like Jason *The Movie) One looks like Darth Vadar. One looks like a circus clown. They all sound like S H I T. Its all gimmick. Its been done before. Alice Cooper, Kiss King Diamond have all done it 100 times better. Damn. one of them even looks like an Idiot stuck in a condom. I tried to give their music a chance. Ha ha ha ha ha . Damn. hahahahhahahahahhahahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahahahhahahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahhahahahahhahah IT SUXXXXXX

From: I Like Metal Date: July 26, 2002 at 12:39
People make fun of slipknot because they wear masks. So if they took them off would they still be the no talent weiners you think they are or would they become good in your books?I don't care if you love them or hate them because i like them and in canda its fuckin hard to get any other good metal band cds unles you order them from the net. So would they still suck without the masks?

From: Kim Date: July 26, 2002 at 13:46
No Cool.Its great that you like them. But bands like Slipnot will always have a problem with the critics. Ive seen them give interwievs here. Theyre so goddamn hostile, that peoble cant stand them.I tried to listen to them, but I really dont like them. Kiss had masks in the beginning. So that has been done before. I think they would be better off, without the masks.. Keep rockin``

From: I Like Metal Date: July 27, 2002 at 10:31
Yeah they are pretty hostile aren't they. What are some other good metal bands because I am thinking of ordering a few cds from online.

From: LordWorm Date: August 24, 2002 at 6:37
Slipknot sucks ass. Mick does have alot of talent but he is wating his talent playing a band like Slipknot, who are nothing more than a lame nu-metal band.

From: Damien Date: September 11, 2002 at 10:52
Agreed Slipknot is not that great of a band and this CD dose suck ya gotta give some credit. A least they try, unlike System Of A Down. But still if your not into Slipknot your better off.

From: nightshade Date: September 16, 2002 at 8:47
lol some songs are ok when you first listen to them but then it sucks to hear them all the time... lol i think the reasons they all wear masks is cuz they are all ugly as fuck.. lol...

From: Falido Date: September 22, 2002 at 13:47
I think Slipknot sounds good,its not THAT new metal,its more thrash oriented,but their lyrics still suck.

From: motley Date: September 23, 2002 at 16:53
it can never be said enuff: SLIPKNOT IS REALLY SUCH A LOSER BAND WITH NO TALENTS AT ALL....crap crap crap!!!!!!!!

From: PigDestroyer Date: October 10, 2002 at 14:27

slipknot has a lot of talent,have you ever listened to the songs long enough to hear his awesome voice you haters! I would like to see any one of you nagging pricks play an instrument and sing as well as they do. and if you dont like heavy shit like slipknot, get off the freakin site

From: Who cares? Date: December 11, 2002 at 3:29
Opinions, opinions, opinions.. that's all these are. Look at this math: OPINION != FACT. Get it? :P

Slipknot fucking rules! the first cd was better. 80's metal sucks ass compared to newer shit.

From: XY Date: December 28, 2002 at 19:46
Mi deludete ragazzi... chi vi d il permesso di scrivere commentacci su un gruppo? nessuno ha il diritto di farlo..ognuno ha i suoi gusti... e se non vi piace un gruppo bene state zitti che tanto a nessuno interessa! ogni gruppo ha i suoi pregi e i suoi difetti,nessuno perfetto e non l'ho invetata io sta cosa...quindi vedete di chiudere quelle vostre boccacce che sanno criticare soltanto! siete solo gelosi xk tanto voi non sarete mai famosi e bravi come loro!!

From: Great Dane Date: December 30, 2002 at 10:34
Just read that SlipSnot will release their last and final cd next year. Then they will split up.................What a sad day for the music scene, they will be missed.........NOT.NOT.NOT.NOT.NOT.NOT.NOT.NOT.NOT

Do they sell millions of albums............No way.

From: skum Date: January 16, 2003 at 19:57
Hey i love it, the music is for people who don't care what people think.

From: Murderdoll#5 Date: January 31, 2003 at 8:52
Okay people, where are you all complaining about? I mean, Slipknot is just good okay, Iron Maiden and Slayer too, and so do others. Slipknot does just wear masks because they want to remain anonymous.

From: Murderdoll#5 Date: January 31, 2003 at 8:57
But well, Slipknot just rules all, and if you don't like them don't listen to them. Megadeth and Manowar are good. So is Within Temptation. (well, they are Dutch so am I).

From: Murderdoll#5 Date: January 31, 2003 at 8:59
But just stop being stupid you all and let Slipknot rule the world for the short period they are famous, they will disappear after a time. But that doesn't change the fact we can still enjoy em now

From: whisper20 Date: February 3, 2003 at 21:59
The music is awesome but the singer and bassist suck by starting a new band not even close to slipknot style

From: metal head Date: February 13, 2003 at 12:48
slipknot is the best fucking shit out there at the moment if you have ever listend to any of the death metal all the is is fucking deep throat screamming where you can't understand one fcking word, so if you are goig to rag on slipknot go fucking do it somewhere else. Slipknot is the fucking best band!

From: Scott Date: February 13, 2003 at 19:21
'slipknot is the best fucking shit'???? Oh yes, take the word of a guy who can't even form a sentence without using the same expletive over and over again. Invest in a dictionary and expand your vocabulary. Then start buying your metal somewhere besides Wal-Mart and you will find there is about a billion metal bands that blow this nu-metal trendy crap right out of the water! Give me real metal. Slipknot sucks!

From: Great Dane Date: February 16, 2003 at 18:58
.............. Scott Keep rockin'

From: XgraveyardX Date: March 22, 2003 at 4:22
You all just need to get over yourselves. Slipknot is a good band, especially thier first cd, but once you hear the speed of a good death metal band or a black metal band such as Marduk or Nile, maybe even a good sludge metal band like Crowbar you will just have to leave Slipknot behind. And the guitar solos are awesome in most death metal, but do you hear that in Slipknot's music? NO! Just look around and find what you like,like I did when I found myself wanting something heavier.

From: Haemoglobin Date: April 6, 2003 at 19:26
guys first things first, Slipknot has talent. I got my first guitar around 8 or 9 months ago. guess what it was? the Signature Series BC Rich Mick Thomson Signature Special. I play all kinds of metal (as well as listen to it ) like BloodBath (those guys are awsome, especially Anders Nystrm, who is the guitarist for Bloodbath also i play after Mick Thomson from Slipknot, who is a really badass guitarist, that guy has some talent. i mean listen to left behind on IOWA and that begginning guitar

From: Haemoglobin Date: April 6, 2003 at 19:32
-add on- Left Behind, IOWA probably ranking in the top 10 coolest guitar lics i have ever heard, amongst them being the solo in Cry My Name from BloodBath and Angel Of Death (redux) from Monstrosity (or Slayer who did the original) and another thing... dont this shit nu-metal, please. you all just say that because its the cool thing to say, get over it, really. what im trying to say is that yes slipknot has talent. Mick Thomson inparticular. so stop bitching.

From: Haemoglobin Date: April 6, 2003 at 19:37
Also, i listen to some really heavy shit, like the heaviest of the heavy kinda like Cattle Decapitation, God Dethroned, Cannibal Corpse and of course BloodBath, and i can still listen to shit like Slipknot and mudvayne. and i dont dress all weird and shit either, (i just wear kik wear jeans greed garmets and shit), but i dont put make up on and shit, or paint my nails or anything, just a regular guy who likes wide leg jeans, and i can still enjoy *lighter* metal like slipknot

From: Haemoglobin Date: April 6, 2003 at 19:42
but back to the point. slipknot is still metal. wether you like it or not, you cant change it so dont try to. its pointless. just let all the people who like them go their way, and you go yours. like i said before, i listen to insanely heavy shit but i can still dig slipknot. they arent the best band ever or anything, but they are still really cool, no doubt about it. so i guess ill see all of you that listen to heavy metal in hell, so ill save you a seat.

From: Axelinger Date: August 30, 2003 at 3:07
Taken from another website: Anything for the music laughs number 1, as long as they're not seen as a gimmick. 'We are metal, we are not the Insane Clown Posse, they throw around Faygo pops and we throw around human feces, how's that for you?' Joey expresses. Any fools indulging in chucking poop onstage as part of the 'act', require mental help, but they should get in line after the illiterate twits sincerely believing anything these idiots do takes talent. This act will wear thin in no time.

From: Motley Date: September 4, 2003 at 3:49
This is together with every other NU metal bands the most pathetic, stinking, no talent lose band ever. Just look at the fans, no-good-system-failed-losers whi only dress up like the members like the are taken outta bad snuff movie. This is beyond being shit and anyone who is into this crap really must have a carrier from a psych.hospital. Totally mtv wanking, no-brainer C R A P!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Cyborganizer Date: September 6, 2003 at 0:34
Axelinger I totally agree. Yes it seems the degenerated culture of nu-metalians often speak in ebonics as well or maybe 'Nu-bonics'. For example: 'sLiPKn0t is the fukin shiznit!' and the famous 'im the (sic)est motha fuka up in dis hizzle', I certainly hope that people one day learn that it doesn't take talent just to be heavy and swear every 5 seconds of a (supposed) song. Slipknot should go back to Iowa and start a new career in the circus, guessing that they'll be there in a few years...

Slipknot are a good live band but their fans can't type in English (I don't mean the Spanish or whatever ones, I mean the lazy arsed ones who can't be bothered to learn how to spell in proper English)... Oh and for the heavier bands than Slipknot? Try Superjoint Ritual, Danzig, Shadow's Fall, Deicide, Slayer, Pantera, DamagePlan, Black Label Society, Motorhead, Metallica...

From: punkiz Date: May 6, 2004 at 12:23
es mas fuerte y metalero que su primer disco y tiene canciones buenas,pero pierde la creatividad y aire pegadizo rabioso del primer disco,aun asi es bastante bueno.

From: Great Dane Date: May 22, 2004 at 19:12
Ha ha. Im going to see Metallica this wednesday. Cool. Why the HELL did they invite these losers to play with them. I will try to be objective when I watch Slutshot, but I doubt I will like them. I might respect them without all the gimmic crap, but I hate faggots dressed in Lord Of the Rings outfits, wearing gay masks.

Like my post on their self titled cd: no spirit, no talent...True: I don't think they sell millions of copies, I hope they really retire and leave us real metal fans alone. For good heavy dose, SLAYER and even PANTERA are thousands times better than this piece of shit band. These guys suck, suck, suck, suck,suck...

From: Dani Filth. Date: February 12, 2005 at 9:50
It seems to me that a great deal of people visiting this site have a rather limited vocabulary. let me give you an example: 'This is the biggest fucking pile of shit ever to be fucking released!' Bloody hell. To you people who can't form a sentance without the help of 'fuck'- and this applies to fans, as well- read Scott's comment. I, personally, like the music. but if you want people to take notice of you without actually laughing at you, stop going overboard with the goddamn swearing.

From: Dani Filth Date: February 12, 2005 at 9:59
By the way- Susperia, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon, Caliban, Pantera, Hatebreed, Japunga, White Zombie, Superjoint Ritual, DamagePlan, Borknagar, Old Man's Child, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Arch Enemy, System of a Down, Mudvayne, Sepultura, Emperor, Black Label Society, Machine Head, Fear Factory, S.Y.L, Slipknot. All good bands with more talent then all the bashers here will ever have. If you are a basher here, then i have some advice. Get out, get some talent, start a band, get a life.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: April 13, 2015 at 21:15
No comments in ten years. Reading back through the old ones is so funny. It's just comical, the rage (and abysmally poor spelling) this band brought out in people on both sides of the issue. And now? Nobody really cares that much. Who are the new punching-bag bands? Black Veil Brides? I'm gonna be 35 this year, I guess I haven't kept watch on who the big scapegoats in metal are currently--a young man's game, maybe. Anyway, if you have to have one Slipknot album in the collection, it should be Iowa. It's their heaviest and jangriest disc, for sure. Slipknot took the DJ-scratching, seven-string guitars and rap-like delivery of nu-metal, injected a near-fatal dose of steroids and jcombined it all with the ferocity of thrash and death-metal. Back in 2001, anything that wasn't the second coming of Maiden or Priest was crucified by the old guard in the peanut gallery, but truly, Slipknot weren't that terrible. Give them credit for being creative, even if you don't like the tunes. For me, the

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: April 13, 2015 at 21:22
weak link in the sound is Corey Taylor, who sounds like a bad Robb Flynn both when he bellows all-out and when he tries to sing. Jordison is a madman on the drums, and the guitarists are good, but since they play in a style that doesn't rely on Malmsteen-like noodliness, many assumed they couldn't play (see about half the above comments). It's all wrappedin layers of weird noises, and the whole thing has an air of mental instability. Calll it nu-metal if you want, but Korn, Coal Chamber and jthe rest never sounded this over-the-top. Best songs for me are "People = Shit," "Disasterpiece," the more melodic single "Left Behind" and the nightmarish (and very long) title track.
