    I'm loving all these old 1999 Slipknot stories.

    My Turn...

    Was in grade 11. Never knew who Slipknot was, but was a fan of Coal Chamber, but for some reason I wasn't attending the show that was coming to Winnipeg. The Slipknot/Coal Chamber/ Dope show (fantastic lineup by the way!). A friend of mine, was huge into Slipknot. How he found out about them, I will never know. None of our group of friends knew who this "Slipknot" was, but he was over his head. They were doing a signing at a local mall record store (HMV) and he skipped class to stand in line all day to be at the front of the singing. So, school ends and myself and another mutual friend go downtown to the signing to hang with our friends. We had no idea who the band was, but what else do you do when you're 16, lol.

    So, we're at the store, hanging with friends, meeting new people in line. Then the line starts moving, OK, sure whatever... let's go meet this band that we don't know. Turns out, earlier that day was yearbook day at school, so I had my yearbook on me... figured I'd get the band to sign my yearbook, because... why the hell not, lol.



    After the singing, we went to the venue to go hang out with our friends in line again, keep them company. We had no intentions of going to the show (me and the other guy), we didn't have tickets. Probably couldn't afford them or something, I donno. But we had a bunch of friends going and we were not, but we just went anyway. As the line started moving to get into the venue, we started walking away. I don't know which of us had the idea, but as we walked around to the side of the building, one of us decided to open the side door (like a fire exit type door) and it wasn't locked. It lead directly to the kitchen of the venue. Nobody was there. We walked in. Now we are in the kitchen. Someone walks in and asks what we were doing, we said we we were looking for the washroom, they direct us through another door, which we walk straight into the fucking venue and now we are at the front of the stage with the rest of our friends, and boy... they were pissed off that we got in for free.

    That's one of my favorite memories/stories to tell. The show was amazing as well, never knew who Slipknot was before that, but after that show, I became a fan. Got the Self titled record for X-mas later that year.
    Man, those were the days. The band just isn't the same as they used to be with all the lineup changes over the years. Good times.

    Haven't been impressed with any of the videos this time around. They're just playing in a room. Not particularly creative. It's okay, just a bit functional.

    ... maybe I shouldn't have just watched Tool's Parabola.

    God Clown is such a fucking shit director. I reaaaally wish they'd would let someone else come in and take control of their creative direction.

    problem is, this is how he justifies his equal share.

    They can reasonably fit US dates in April/May or after September based on what's already been announced. Though if it's gonna be a late spring tour, dates will probably get announced in the next couple weeks.

    I would expect them to finally change the setlist as this would be their second euro tour on this cycle. Also, the set times that I saw on the slipknot sub reddit say they they may be playing two hour sets but we shall see tomorrow if that is actually the case. Jim talked about how they've been thinking of doing two hour sets and that it would realistically be adding five to seven songs. Fingers crossed.

    Brooks is such a perfect fit that I don't think there was a more perfect fit for the band since Jimmy tbh. Love his drumming on Paradigm and The Stage album in general.



    Anyways, Slipknot posted a bunch of cryptic teasers on their instagram today. The SK Sub is SURE there is gonna be a double album or some shit but I doubt that. There are like seven songs from WANYK sessions that didn't get released, and we also have Look Outside Your Window coming out at some point soonish too. My guess is that it's one of those two things or a tour announcement for the states

    I realised today why I recognised the guitar riff during the chorus of Spiders. It's similar to Bowie's The Man Who Sold The World.

    I'll probably check it out when I get home.

    In other news, their euro tour just started and they played Nero Forte! Can't wait for some US dates

    Well in their defense, they did say that they were only talking about it.

    Regardless, based on setlist.fm, they played a pretty heavy set.

    Clown probably put it together, so I don't think the talented ones (Jay, Jim, ECT) lost any focus lol

    Not the full song, but...

    Hard to tell with the potato cam resolution, but does V Man have some sort of Rammstein-esque flame thrower thing attached to his bass? I mean, they already took Flakes treadmill...

    edit:

    Looks like it's Tortilla Man doing the screaming part of the chorus

    Bummed - though not surprised - that Corey's not hitting the highs in the Nero Forte chorus.

    It was a really great gig, Tuesday night in Dublin. Some spectacle. Amazing stage set up and nice set list. A lot of fun.
