    Slipknot - All Hope Is Gone!

    Good old Slipknot. Unlike all the other bands who released new albums this year, this is the one band who genuinely did NOT get lighter. About the only band who have gone even heavier. Surprisingly, I've heard a lot of melodeath and death metal riffs on the album. Vendetta in particular is very strange, starting out with a style of tremeolo picking almost exactly like morbid angel's dawn of the angry. Similarly, the harmonising rhythm guitar on the title track sounds like something straight out of a Slayer album. There are some great tracks here. Besides the singles Psychosocial and All Hope Is Gone, Gematria and This Cold Black are fucking sick. Great drumming throughout of course, what else could be expected of joey? There's a Vermillion remix bonus track on the Japanese release for the diehard maggots.

    If anyone wants the album, hit me up on MSN. I mean, uh... if anyone wants the album before it's released in Europe/America, go to Japan, haha.

    My favourite is Psychosocial, part because the drums that kick in after 20 seconds are good, and partly because Cory uses some of the singing skills he uses for Stone Sour along with screaming, he has such a good voice.

    What's the new Vermillion like?
    Vermillion Pt.2 is one of my favourite songs, so I'll probably like it.

    The new vermillion is terrible to be honest. It's a remix of part 2. They added a piano track over the original mix to make it sound more "powerful". At least, I think that was the intention. It ruins the original. As buddy rich once said, a single note on a violin can be more powerful than an entire symphony orchestra :U

    Good album, I don't like All Hope is Gone that much..just because I hate the way it sounds, bleh.
    I like the other stuff for the most part, I reallllly am not feeling Cory's new mask though, it makes me laugh when I see it .
