Over twenty-five years ago, nine guys from Des Moines, Iowa, shattered the scope of what was possible in metal. Slipknot's music put blastbeats, massive breakdowns and brutal riffs alongside breakbeats and turntablism; punctuated hooky melodies with extreme vocals and percussive rap verses. On stage, bodies clad in numbered jumpsuits and horror film masks crashed into each other, eliciting mania from hungry crowds and drawing blood and breaking bones in the process.
Everything Slipknot did was maximalist and monstrous, completely unhinged and meticulously thought out. From the moment Slipknot appeared on an early afternoon stage at Ozzfest ‘99, it was clear they were like nothing people had ever seen and everything they never knew they needed.
It's no surprise that Slipknot's self-titled debut, recorded to tape with Ross Robinson at the infamous Indigo Ranch (Korn, Soulfly, Machine Head) and released on Roadrunner, went platinum within three months of release – despite a lack of press, radio, or MTV support – on the strength of the reputation they built through relentless touring and hits like "Wait and Bleed," "Eyeless," and "Spit it Out."
