06/29/1999DomesticGenre: HEAVY METAL The album cover of this self-
titled release depicts the members of Slipknot in creepy masks, the dark image
confirmed by the presence of a parental advisory sticker. Inside, foul
language and subversive lyrics complete the picture. Yet Slipknot are no
Insane Clown Posse, using hyperbole to mask a lack of talent. Slipknot’s
sound, while indebted to the likes of Korn, is more aggressive and creative.
Indeed, it’s a closer kin to Slayer and death metal, yet listenable and
surprisingly melodic. The common denominator among Slipknot and the late ’90s
crop of neo-metal-rap bands is producer Ross Robinson (Korn, Limp Bizkit), who
discovered the Iowa-bred Slipknot and signed them to his label, I Am Records.
His stellar production, melded with wonderfully creepy percussive elements, a
sampler, a DJ, metallic-grind guitars, and singer Corey Taylor’s immense
passion and wide melodic range, makes Slipknot immensely listenable. Slipknot
isn’t for everyone, but they provide a visceral and satisfying ride for fans
of the hard stuff. –Katherine Turman
