Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) Slipknot is an American alternative/nu metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. Formed in 1995, the group was founded by percussionist Shawn Crahan and bassist Paul Gray. After several lineup changes in their early days, the band consisted of nine members for the greater part of their tenure: Sid Wilson, Paul Gray, Joey Jordison, Chris Fehn, Jim Root, Craig Jones, Shawn Crahan, Mick Thomson, and Corey Taylor. However, the death of Paul Gray on May 24, 2010, left the band with only eight remaining members. Former guitarist Donnie Steele will be the band’s touring bassist in 2011.

Slipknot is well known by their attention-grabbing image, aggressive music style and chaotic live shows. The band had somewhat of a meteoric rise to success following the release of their self-titled debut album, Slipknot, in 1999. The 2001 follow-up album Iowa further increased the band’s popularity. After breaking for their first hiatus, Slipknot returned in 2004 with Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) and once again in 2008 with their fourth album All Hope Is Gone, which debuted at the top spot on the Billboard 200. The band has also released one live album, 9.0 Live, and four DVDs.

2) Slipknot were from New Haven, Connecticut In the late 80s. Stiemy (bass/ vocals) was previously the singer in FATAL VISION who appeared on the “Connecticut Fun” compilation LP (INCAS,1985). “Connecticut Fun” was also YOUTH OF TODAY’S vinyl debut before officially becoming a “NYHC” band. Stiemy stopped playing music after SLIPKNOT and took up art and a career as a chef. Chang (drums) also stopped playing music after SLIPKNOT.

    @jimbodisco, ok seriously, i get that you like slipknot and you'll "never grow out of them" but you have to realize that some people do grow older and stop listening to artists from 15 years ago as they have become redundant to that person. it is not illogical to hate new releases due to the unpredictability of the alternative music scene these days and the trends they follow to gain polarity. you do however, make some valid points in your arguments, but because of the way you worded them, came off as nothing but elitist. i despise slipknots new shit, but it doesn't make me any less of a fan than you. maybe you only like psycho social. i don't know. i also don't care. but it does sound like you're trying too hard. relax and smoke a bone, man.`

    There is no metal without Black Sabbath or Judas Priest.
