ignoring the thread that's been dead since '09 So anyone like Slipknot? They're one of those bands that I've known existed for a long time, but only recently started listening and paying attention to. These past few days they're all I've been listening to. Opium of the People has been on repeat for a couple days, and last night I discovered The Shape, which is almost just as good. (sic) was the song that grabbed me. Aside from Welcome it was the first song I listened to that wasn't a single, and I felt compelled to listen to all of their stuff. I think my favorite album of theirs is Vol. 3. Not because it was the album that introduced me to them all those years ago and has the two singles that I first heard, but because of how diverse (Circle, Vermilion) and, at times, experimental/unusual it is(The Virus of Life, Danger), and they're all phenomenal. I'm hard-pressed to say which from the album is my favorite. I want to like All Hope Is Gone more than I do. Gematria is great, but other than that none of the songs stand out. Psychosocial is okay, but just okay.
