10 years of Iowa, cue re-release

Ten years ago, and hey – jokes aside, when Slipknot released Iowa, they really did acheive something fairly big. Without the promotion of Britney Spears, and nearly without a single clean melody in earshot, the band still catapulted a heavy fucking Metal album to the top of the charts. They may have been (and perhaps unfairly) associated with the Nu-Metal movement of the time, but Slipknot have always been way more ‘Metal’ than they have ‘Nu’.

Still, that doesn’t mean the band can’t milk even more cash out of the fans, right?

It has been announced that, “in celebration” (in other words -$$£££) of the tenth anniversary since the release of Iowa, the album will be re-released as part of a special pack.

According to Blabbermouth, the pack will include the original Iowa album, a remix of ‘My Plague’ as an added bonus track, the full live audio from the Disasterpieces DVD, and the DVD of “Goat”, a new film directed by M. Shawn Crahan featuring never-before-seen interviews and footage showing the madness that surrounded the Iowa era, plus four music videos. In other words, another shitty pretentious video from the Clown that you’ll never watch. Great.

I’ll personally be buying the new 10th anniversary re-release, as my copy of Iowa has disc rot as a result of too much masturbation.


We don’t care what musicians think of 9/11

Look, what happened ten years ago on September 11 is no laughing matter. Sure, some jokes have been ‘cracked,’ even by yours truly, but at the end of the day, thousands of people died and many more were injured. Families were broken, careers were destroyed and now airport security has permission to stare at your penis. I mean, it’s fucked up.

But if there’s anything that aggravates me more than  a fat, sweaty TSA agent with a double-digit IQ copping a feel on my balls, it’s having to listen to ‘celebrities’ talking about this tragedy (or any other tragedy), as if a tragedy needs to be explained by a bunch of ‘artists’ to be taken seriously.

So in case footage of planes crashing into two of America’s biggest landmarks wasn’t enough for you to take this tragedy seriously, here are a few vids of Corey Taylor, Shannon Larkin and John Maggard ‘remembering’ the attack and where they were when it happened.

Lemme guess what they did. They were going about their days when they suddenly turned on the news and saw the awful footage. Then they were glued to their seats to find out what happens next. Guess what, everyone did that, turns out not only people who get recognized once in a while react that way to a globally televised tragedy.

Here’s an idea… Why not interview the firemen who risked their lives trying to save others? I mean, I know a lot of them have appeared on the news, but not enough as I bet none of you can even name one. Yet a guy who usually wears a mask gets more airtime to talk how he was chillin’ at home and turned on CNN. Life is fair.

Make the jump to see the self-indulgence.


It’s too soon for a new Slipknot album. Pheeew!

Upon  reading confirmations of a Slipknot US tour, I was a bit scared that a new Slipknot album might be coming next. Fortunately the Clown’s statement calmed me down. Pheew-fucking-hoo, dodged that bullet.

I wanted to tell everyone straight from my mouth because you may have heard it already anyway, but SLIPKNOT will be touring by next June in America only, but that does not mean things will not change, and as they do, I will, along with others, tell you, our family, first. No album yet because it is too soon and there are no songs yet because the band needs to come together to write this next one. I cannot wait to feel the ideas like choking on color. Everything happens for a reason, so be ready.

I have an idea, why don’t you start writing the album? Oh wait, you can’t write an album with a barrel! ZING.



Weak Recap: Solo style

Mouthful of metal

Hey, it’s another Sunday, and you know what that means, time for your favorite weekly interview. The one we do with each other.

Except, you’re not getting one.

Apparently, other people at Dose of Metal obviously have this thing called “life” and they’re too busy with their “girlfriends.” You know where that leaves me? Same place I was last week — alone in the room, wishing I had enough money to buy myself a plastic one.

I’m just kidding, blow up dolls are for pussies, real men pleasure themselves. And by that, I don’t mean I can reach my penis with my mouth. I just make the best use of my hands. Speaking of my hands and wonderful results, make the jump to read my solo recap.


Slipknot’s US tour is on. So is a new Stone Sour album.

Corey Taylor

Corey Taylor fans are gonna love this: He’s confirmed via Twitter that the Slipknot US tour is currently being booked. The reason Slipknot fans ultimately won’t be happy, is that it’s also been reported that he’s making an album — only with his other band, Stone Sour.

Let’s take a quick look at Corey’s priorities over the past year: a Stone Sour album, a solo single, a book, auditions for the spot of Velvet Revolver singer, a Slipknot tour, a side-project with Duff McKagan, solo tours, audiobook, Stone Sour covers EP, Stone Sour live DVD, his hit rendition of the SpongeBob theme song, another Stone Sour studio album. Look for Slipknot in the previous sentence, I’m sure it’s there somewhere. Ten bucks he gets kicked out of the band the moment the tour is done.
