Ruled by numbers and into chaos, Slipnot are metal's messed up hardcore sensation. Iowa used to be the middle of nowhere and then there was Slipnot.
The frightening persona and bar-coded number assignment, with faces shrouded in masks deliver complete brutality. Putting on the masks reveal what's inside each of the characters, something they live 24 hours a day and is an extension of their personalities.
This is not a music release by the artist, record company, and management but an exclusive revealing audiobiog. Slipknot demand your attention; however, they don't want fans, they only want friends and family. Are they misfits - maybe. Freaks... definitely.
