SLIPKNOT BAND FACES LOGO STICKER
STAR - STICKER
It’s fairly safe to assume that not a whole lot happens in Des Moines, Iowa, which makes the formation of a mask-wearing Heavy Metal ensemble seem more like an inevitability than anything else.
Founded in 1995, Slipknot took on several incarnations before crossing paths with Corey Taylor, who at the time was the lead singer for rival band Stone Sour.
Slipknot released their first full-length album in 1999 and was eagerly embraced by the faceless masses, who came to appreciate the melodic structure and disturbing lyrical content of songs like “Wait and Bleed”.
Since then the eccentric rockers have sold over 10 million albums worldwide and earned a multitude of honors, including a Grammy award for Best Metal Performance in 2006.
Influenced by: Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Judas Priest, Korn
