    I need to relisten to the entire Slipknot catalog this weekend. Hope the band enjoys the $0.00000000000000001 from me via Spotify, lol.

    I just listened to Mate Feed Kill Repeat for the first time and I can say the most interesting and unique elements of their music where taken out and watered down to what the self titled album was. I can understand why the did it and why the self titled album was the success it was without those elements but by comparison the music is what you'd get like a person recovering from a stroke. I still enjoy the self titled album and it's simplicity does convey that raw emotion and energy but man does it get boring after a few songs.

    If they had gone with the Mate Feed Kill Repeat direction however they'd most probably be still an underground band so good marketing choices and great idea to go with the whole family/united/uncompromising shtick. It works for young people all the time (worked for me at the 80's Thrash era).

    What is everyone's opinion on the song "Snap" by Slipknot, from the Jasion Vs. Freddy soundtrack? Apparently, it evolved into Spit it out, I could be wrong though, just hearsay.

    I thought it was pretty good. There's a few songs from the s/t era that didn't make it onto the main albums that are pretty good. Get This and Snap are two of those.

    Why not? He will get paid, regardless if he wins or not. Lawyers...

    This. :agreed:

    Even if he's "fired" from the band, he gets his royalties. They can't retroactively remove him from the album/song credits.

    This could be a well calculated move on his part.

    Worst case he might be banking on the rest of the band not wanting to drag this out and get a lump sum payment. He's almost 50. If he was considering retiring from the band this might be his way to "cash out".

    People pay money to see 5FDP and eat at McDonald's, doesn't make either of those things good or worth existing. If you're argument is "OH YEAH WHAT HAVE YOU ACCOMPLISHED?!?!?" you don't have an argument.

    You should thank me for even noticing you existed.

    I'm sorry, what? You should really try not to mumble when you type.

    Don’t remind me. I got a ticket to see them at Madison Square Garden and I splurged on probably the best ticket I could have gotten without being in the pit. Would have been my first time seeing them. Did The US your officially get cancelled yet?

    They have yet to announce anything yet thus far. I splurged on this tour as well and got the VIP package. Holding out hope it isn't rescheduled til 2021, but am still waiting for any confirmation...

    I think this is the best band. I am very glad that I managed to get to their concert in Europe before the quarantine. In general, I admire the talent and work of James Ruth. He's the best. Yes, if you compare the first and last albums, Corey Taylor's voice has changed for the better. This can be seen at the concert, as on live video it is completely different.

    I had to look up who James Ruth is. :) Michael Thomasson and Corie Tyler are not bad either.
