Taking their leads from early nu-metal pioneers such as Korn, Slipknot exploded into public consciousness in 1999 with their self-titled debut album.
A spectacular live show and the commercially successful singles Wait And Bleed and Spit It Out ensured the record soon acquired platinum status.
Their 2001 sophmore album Iowa continued the band's trademark brutal sound, spreading it to an even wider audience.
Slipknot released their sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, in 2019. It follows 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter, 2008’s All Hope Is Gone and 2004’s Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses).
One of the largest metal groups of a generation, Slipknot regularly perform sold-out arena tours and headline festivals across the world.
The hard-hitting masked group are also known for songs Left Behind, Duality and Before I Forget. The latter track earned the band a Grammy Award in 2006 for Best Metal Performance.
