Hey,

This is not a slipknot hating nor is it a slipknot loving thread!!

I'm just wondering what do people hate about slipknot. Is it the drums, guitars or what? And plz say why u hate what hate and can you compare slipknot to a band that you do like and tell me why you like that band better?

The purpose of this post is so that i can see the how different bands have different sounds.
So please....please don't post any slipknot hating or slipknot loving stuff here if you're not going to answer my question. As soon as sumone says sumthing like "slipknot rules" some other guy will probably reply offensively.


thanks

they're quite boring.
Sure they're catchy and poppy, but they get boring after 3 minutes.
And I don't really dig Corey Taylor's vocals in most of slipknots stuff. He's better in Stonesour.

Yeah well in special UG land chords = noob, scales = intermediate and modes = advanced. Most users are trying to finish the game on hard because then you get the trophies for noob and intermediate difficulties upon completion anyway.

I simply don't like the music I find it very sludgy and fatiguing on the ears. I am much a fan of cleaner, more epic sounding stuff instead. There is definetly talent in the band though, I don't know how you could call Joey Jordison's drumming sloppy...but they need to grow up when they are still moaning about girlfreind's and angst at their ages.

To compare them to my absolute favourite band, Iron Maiden...I would say that I like Maiden's sound more as it is epic, melodic (Whilst still heavy and energetic) and avoids completely any emoish topics in the lyrics...in short it is just more "mature"

i used to like slipknot until i listened to better stuff. slipknots guitar sound is remotely similiar to the tone of morbid angel's to me, however morbid angel does it MUCH better. plus slipknots tuning to low B on standard string instruments makes the guitars really muddy sounding, and add to that to me thier riffs are boring. oh plus their bass player is pretty much non-existant since you can never hear him. i will admit joey does have alot of talent though

I lol'ed too

Personally, I love the Iowa album, a lot of their self titled and a few from Vol. 3. It's all in personal taste. I like the chaotic, unrefined sound they have. I listen to them every now and then.....and when I met my girlfriend she noticed my Slipknot jacket which sparked our first conversion.


EDIT: I love how Slipknot is boring and teenagers listen to them to be hardcore but As I Lay Dying is good **** man.

If by 'talent' you actually mean 'mediocrity', yes.

Ah so everyone else was thinking it too? Its true, for someone to diss Slipknot and then go on to recomend these 10 bands is quite lol worthy. Even though I am not a Slipknot fan these guys are arguably much worse

There are first posts that make me say I wish that I could edit that, and there are first posts that me say I wish the thread was closed after this because everything else in the thread is pointless this is one of those first posts.
