Surely one of the biggest talking points to the average Metal fan this year, what do you guys think of it?

Not heard it either. And unlikely to since I had to Google it to find out what it even was. 

I had a passing interest in Slipknot when Vol. 3 was their current album but they never made a lasting impression on me.

I´ve never enjoyed their music, so I´ll pretty surely pass on this one, but I´ve read about the album and the drama that led up to it on Blabbermouth.

Didn't like it very much, and I did like their previous two albums. This one sounded way closer to their earlier albums, which I always found to be incredibly sloppy.

I've never really cared for Slipknot, so I haven't heard it.

I've just listened to one song streamed on yt. Sounds surprisingly close to the old Slipknot. I used to really like this band 9-8 years ago, mostly because I didn't know any better. Still, I can't say I think very ill of them, it was a decent band back then, I just didn't like their tamed nu-metal sound of later period.

Everytime I've heard Slipknot, I really try to like them. I just can't seem to wrap my head around their music. It's just way too extreme for me, and I would much prefer a band like Mudvayne over them any day. 

I listened to TGC to see if I would like it, and I must come to the conclusion that I have not developed a taste for Slipknot after listening. Their music seems to by mostly based on fast headbanger riffs only, and lackluster lyrics and vocals get slightly lame after a time.

I wouldn't recommend for anyone trying out Slipknot for the first time. Confused

To be fair, they probably do bowl too.
Ten pin bowling, they could have a pin each (with one pin left over for the tour manager).

Maybe that could be a kickstarter reward, if they crowdfund the next album? :)
