Product Description

Product Description

Slipknot are back with their fourth album, `All Hope Is Gone', recorded this spring in Slipknot's home state and co-produced by the band and Dave Fortman (Evanesence), mixed by Colin Richardson (Machine Head).All Hope is Gone is more of a statement than a record. Corey Taylor comments, "Every album we have made is a statement about that space in time. I think this era is the most mature, most beautiful and the most powerful. We have made an album that will show the road behind, the road ahead, and where we are as men. I think it's the best thing I've ever made. And I challenge anyone to prove me wrong." The album blends element of 2004's Vol 3: (The Subliminal Verses) and 2001's Iowa, while adding a perspective, freshness and depth that only three years apart can bring. The first single "Psychosocial" is a bruising, anthemic stomper that only the `Knot can master, while follow-up `Dead Memories' sears with blistering melody .

Amazon.co.uk

For most bands, the process of experimentation involves infusing more traditional song structures with weirder, or less familiar sonic elements. Not so for Iowa’s Slipknot. All Hope Is Gone, the metal neuftet’s fourth full-length, finds them further mining the seam that produced 2004’s Vol 3: The Subliminal Verses, adulterating their caustic, percussion-heavy take on thrash metal with acoustic guitars and anthemic choruses. Present too, though, is a heaviness that harkens back to 2001’s aggressive Iowa, meaning the likes of "Psychosocial" and "Dead Memories" mix big, inclusive vocal hooks with bulldozing low-end and savage percussion breakdowns set to arcane time signatures. Nor is it all set to formula: "Butcher’s Hook", for instance, sounds nothing like anything in Slipknot’s catalogue to date. It is a slamming funk-metal track not unlike The Rollins Band, with broiling! anti-establishment lyrics and a huge call-and-response chorus. The occasional Nickelback-like chorus might appall the diehards, but Slipknot are still stretching themselves, and All Hope Is Gone stands up to anything in their catalogue. --Louis Pattison

Slipknot are a strange entity. They've created a clever image for themselves that allows them to stand out from the crowd (Who says metal has to be serious all the time?), yet their music hasn't always followed suit.
Their first album was not what you'd call a classic in the grand scheme of all that is Metal. It had a dirty, heavy sound but the quality of the songwriting was sporadic, the riffs were often similar, and prone to a lot of noise for the sake of it.
It also went downhill very quickly after the first half. Not an uncommon phenomenon with metal albums, but it got pretty bad... Anyway...

I've never been a big fan of them ever since, and i'll be the first to admit i'm not an expert on them. They were ok, but not a band I could listen to for any length of time. They always seemed to be more for younger metal fans.

The most I heard after that was catching occasional glimpses of videos from later albums. Credit due - their videos are class. Duality was cool.

So, when their latest single Psychosocial appeared on my TV screen the other day and pounded my brain to mush with the bloody end of my own severed arm, I was pleasantly surprised.

So surprised that I actually found myself buying the new album today to see if any other surprises were

Occasionally (amongst the *&^% that some bands release these days) I find a new metal album that actually makes me smile and remember why I listen to metal in the first place.

This is not the same band that released that first album many years ago. This is a stripped down, refined, nonsense-free, focused, and professional, tight unit of a band who have put some thought into what they do.

This is Slipknots 4th album and as far as i,m concerned there best. On this album its not just noise for loud sake its structured and thought about. I think its the band growing up and maturing.I,m a mature MetalHead into Motorhead etc so it appeals to me and i think it is meant to appeal to all Metalheads not just there young fanbase.Again less than £2 from Zoverstocks and this is the cd/dvd version and the dvd is a making of the album where you see the band no masks, no gimmicks just 30 year old men making a metal album even if it is done a bit strange with often going about in paper mache heads?.

After hearing the single they released online, i must say i didnt exactly have massive hopes of being blown away by this album. I bought it anyway, and i must say i'm a lil bit dissapointed with the finished product.
Yes, their are a couple of really good songs on this album, and i can't slate the ability of the band, the drumming, vocals and guitars on this album are first class.

The main gripe i have with the album is when i listened to it the first time through, the whole time i was wondering "Are Sid and Craig dead or something?" seriously, it's like their not even on this album at all, apart from the intro. Wether it's just a problem with the mixing or something i'm not sure. Gone are the jungle amens, scratching and dance influences, which is one of the main reasons i liked slipknot in the first place. Tracks like "Eyeless","Left Behind" and "Pulse Of The Maggots" made my hair stand on end when i first heard them, i just didnt get the same from any track on this album, apart from "This Cold Black" which is amazing.

I'm still planning on seeing these guys live when they do their next tour in the uk, because to be fair i think a lot of these new songs will sound better live, and to see exactly what sid, craig and the two percussionists are actually doing on these new tracks.

Not having been a fan when they first came out, my local pub holds a monthly Rock Night and to be honest, with the constant play of the tunes on the DJ's playlist/requests from the crowd, the band grew on me! Had to get this album when it came out :o)

I've listened to slipknot since they first came around and although I love the band, I was a little bit.. disappointed with the album and I don't think it compares to Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses#.
If you liked tracks like Metabolic, Vermilion and Circle, you'll probably love this album. I've listened to All Hope Is Gone quite a few times now to make sure it wasn't just an album that was difficult to take in and whilst I did enjoy a few tracks such as .execute., Dead Memories and Snuff; I didn't rate the other ones too much.
I don't dislike this track because I feel slipknot have lost talent, because believe me they haven't. I think it's just because it's so different to their other albums.
If this is the first album you've heard from slipknot you'll probably love it, but as a long time fan I find it hard to believe it's them.
Although I do like the quieter tracks like Snuff and Child Of Burning Time, I don't think it's as good as their other records.
