This album is fucking awesome. It starts out shredding and never lets up. I highly recommend giving the entire album a listen, as it has the feel of Megadeth's older albums. Speed metal masters.
If you had any faith in humanity, prepare to lose it. This album focuses on the evil that man does to himself, from snuff films to a school shooter to the rape of Nanking. And it's the most musically diverse album in the Exodus library. Expect everything from brutal thrash to slow doom. For true metalheads only.
I used to listen to these guys in high school, was surprised to find out they were still even a thing since Sonny Moore (Skrillex) left so long ago and the band rapidly lost popularity. I was honestly surprised that not only were they still a thing, but this was a recent album after 5 years since their last album.
The album isn't bad honestly, though anyone who doesn't enjoy that post-hardcore shit probably wont enjoy it lol.
Wanted to share this with FAF, had no idea where, so you're getting it here.
[h=1]There is a Ned Flanders-themed metal band called Okilly Dokilly[/h]http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/news/there-is-a-ned-flandersthemed-metal-band-called-okilly-dokilly-10453357.html
Slipknot is one of those bands I have mixed feelings about. Some of their music is good, some of their music feels a bit weak. This album feels heavier than some of their other music, and it lacks heavy electronic sounds (a plus in my book). This album sorta reminds me of Machine Head, as Corey Taylor has similar vocals to Robert Flynn. The guitars are nice and heavy, and the vocals are angrier than normal. What more can you ask for?
The Platinum Album... how New Millennium of them.
While there are more mellower songs and legit ballads, plus the duration is much shorter than the first album, it's still a dance album through and through.
I'm considering purchasing both of 'em.
