Slipknot is a nu metal band from Iowa and this is their popular debut album from 1999.

I have never understood why this band is so popular. Their sound is very generic nu metal, that fails to distinguish itself in a crowded genre. Even other maligned nu metal band's like Korn and Mushroomhead at least manage to distinguish themselves from the rest by experimenting with other sounds/genres etc. This is the only Slipknot album i've heard and i was not impressed, all the songs here have the same sounding riffs, same boring shouted/rapped vocals and idiotic lyrics that sound directly aimed at angsty teenagers.

I know the nu metal fans eat this sort of stuff up, but fans of other genres should steer clear.
