Taken from http://www.black-goat.com/biography.php
Slipknot were brought together by Paul and Shawn along with Anders Colsefni (ex-singer) in Des Moines, Iowa in 1995. The band has been through many changes since then to reach the current 9 member status it has now.
Slipknot consider themselves as a family unit and each of the nine members are assigned a number between 0-8. The group mascarade the rock scene in their individual masks, each representing a personality, and there draping jumpsuits. Rather than hiding themselves, Slipknot feel they are showing their true personalities and inner selves with the masks which also add to the flavour and intensity of the music due to the sheer awkwardness of the masks.
The band consists of 3 percussionists, 2 guitarists, 1 bassist, 1 DJ, 1 sampler and 1 lead singer, the complex heavy metal sound, mixed with riffs of rap, hip hop and in the good old days funk, jazz and disco has been matched by no other and following the release of MFKR.
Slipknot has been climbing and climbing, gaining new fans and support with the release of the self-titled album which soon stormed to platinum status. Nine guys? That cant work? In fact it works perfectly! And now Iowa has been placed back onto the map.
Personally i really like this band they're original with their music and brought a breath of fresh air into the metal bands.
PS: I couldn't find another thread about them so if it's a duplicate sorry...

LOVE THEM

Slipknot are like my 2nd favourite band or something. I worship them to death. Corey Taylor is the biggest fuckin' icon I have and the music is just sensational, it really is.

I love Stone Sour and Murderdolls too but havent heard To My Surprise [Shawn's band incase some people didn't know xD]

Well the masks were not to be subjected to all the promos and stuff. They said that way with the masks and the jumpsuits people will focus on the music and not on the *glamour*.
Masks are and always will be a part of slipknot. And sure we all know how some members look like due to their side projects but it's just not Slipknot without the masks.

Edit: Barbie_fashion_designer lol that's awesome. And welcome btw Cool

Oh how I love them.

And this is directed to all those kids who come in here bitching about Slipknot, thinking we value their opinion;

We don't. Its just better if you fuck off, because we don't appreciate you coming in here and bitching about this band. I don't give a shit if their masks are "scarey", your face is scary, so go away.

Oh how I love them.

I've seen them once, and cried when I couldn't see them the next night. I was devastated.

I enjoy telling my boyfriend about when I saw them, because he didn't lmfao lmfao

Yeah, I saw them at the Sydney BDO

Wow big day out was really cool...not that i was there *sad* i only saw it on tv. You were lucky hehe.
And yes most people don't get the mask thing and think they wouldn't wanna see them in a dark alley at night but the guys are really cool. I had a chance to meet them in italy (totally random i didn't even know they had a show and it was my last day in italy so lucky). They're really really down to earth people not satanists and all that crap. And corey is one funny bastard lol

Yeah, I haven't seen Slipknot live.
But I seen Stone Sour at Download [plus Corey singing Korn songs Cool ]
And they were really good. I really wanna see Slipknot though, but I'm guessing this probably wont be for some time.

Apparently they are coming back together in 2007 to write new songs and stuff. And they are also releasing a DVD sometime.

Oh how exciting ^______^
