WHAT’S UP NATION!?
Been a long time I know but SLIPKNOT is No. 1 on the Billboard charts with they’re newest album in six years “Vol. 5: The Gray Chapter”. Selling 132,000 units in it’s first week of sales. Crushing T.I. in second place with his new album “Paperwork” which only sold 80,000. This is their first effort since the death of they’re bassist Paul Gray and the termination of drummer Joey Jordison. For this album front man Corey Taylor stated they are going back to the writing style used in their third album “Subliminal Versus Vol. 3″. I have personally listened to the new album and they did exactly that just slightly tweaked so it doesn’t come off as a rehash. Many fans have complained saying that it sounds like Corey Taylor’s side band “Stone Sour”. Having listened to the record I can honestly say that nothing could be further from the truth. If you would like to hear it for yourself click HERE to hear the album in it’s entirety. Congrats Slipknot, thanks for not only making an excellent come back but, for showing that Rock is NOT dead.
