Don't like them. Hideously over-rated and their bassist is a pillock, he's convinced teh Knot have done lots for extreme metal. FAUL!

...they sort of have. They have a far bigger audience than any extreme metal act, but are far more extreme than other widely known metal acts so they can act as a gateway of sorts.

Did I miss something? Since when are Slipknot extreme metal? Take a look at Cradle of Filth if you want an act which is comercially successful and has done something for extreme metal.

No. Unless of course by "done something for extreme metal" you mean bastardized pseudo black metal with gothic influences, then yes

that's true.. they have a lot more extreme influence in their music than other mainstream stuff like LoG of BFMV

You don't have to be extreme metal to do something for its growth.

I wouldn't say they're even as extreme as LoG. They're just not extreme. And neither are BFMV.

So by this logic, Hatebreed is brutal death metal? No?

No. Slipknot aren't extreme metal but they've done a lot for it.

So many people get into harder forms of metal through Slipknot it's ridiculous. Plenty of people here probably used to listen to them and similar bands.

Arch Enemy, Megadeth and Metallica were my gateways so whatever, I mean seriously though just post in other threads if this is still causing an uproar, most of the regulars are still here and posting things can go on as before.

Actually this is both true and false, in a sense. I know many people who have been listening to slipknot for years and have never given anything heavier a try. At maximum, they get into other posercore/nu metal like the majority of metalcore, etc. through slipknot. Of course, I'm sure some people starting out listening to them and then starting listening to other things (sorry for the awkward phrasing throughout, I'm trying to avoid terms like "actual metal", true, etc. )

I think they're a reasonably entertaining band despite all the pathetic bandwaggon douchbaggery that seems to go on in this forum.

imo, these type of nu-metal bands should go to the hardcore forum...there's less activity there than in the metal area.

Traffic has nothing to do with it, 99% of nu-metal bands have virtually no direct hardcore influence in the way metalcore bands do.

I was impressed with how the lead playing improved from Vol.3 to All Hope Is Gone. Some of the solos on Vol. 3 were quite poor but I was pleased overall with the solos and leads on All Hope Is Gone.

I suppose they are 'metal'.

But something doesn't sit right in my stomach when I see Entombed, Morbid Angel, and Dissection in the same sub-forum as Slipknot.

what part of slipknot is not metal (except vermilion pt. 2 that song sucks monkey balls i know)but have you listened to ppl=****?? or gehenna?? do you ppl even know what the hell your talkin about?
#148
Nu-metal was given it's own forum because of the surge of popularity in nu-metal. And now the forum has too little traffic so they decided to rid of it. The bands should be back in here and just because people think their not "troo" like Agalloch, Entombed or Morbid Angel doesn't make a difference.

That said, I used to think Slipknot were ok but trying to get into their albums just left me bored.

You imply that Slipknot is metal. Then you question whether we know what we're talking about.

They are a bastardization of everything that metal has ever claimed to stand for. They are mainstream musicians who have managed to cater to a crowd of angry 12 year old's who think it's 'metal' to swear when mommy isn't around.

Seriously, out of all the decent songs they have, you pick Gehenna as an example of how metal they are? It's one of their most boring songs, along with the rest of their 'creepy' ones like Prosthetics, Scissors, Skin Ticket, The Virus of Life, etc.

while I'm gonna say I like them, I MUCH prefer their 3rd/4th albums. They would be golden if they had more solos with less effects and started playing their better songs live, not fan favorites, and got more consistent. Like, an album that had stuff like Gematria and All Hope is Gone would probably be great.

Unlike bands like, Metallica, Megadeth or Slayer. The fact that you say the bastardization of metal is the fact that they are mainstream is plain retarded. The fact that they ever got popular in the first place was an unlikley event, and know they recieve less credit because they enjoy success.

Give me 100 twelve year olds and let me survey them with this question:

I am thinking of four bands: Slipknot, Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer. Please tell me one song from each band, if you can.

The overwhelming majority will be able to say a Slipknot song but no Megadeth or Slayer. Metallica hasn't interested me for a long long time...they also cashed into the world of the radio-waves. I don't feel they deserve any credit for their work within the metal world because instead of being constructive they've just brough unwanted traffic.

Twisted Sister is heavier than them. There is no possible way I will ever consider Slipknot metal. They have weak riffs, weak screaming, gimmicky masks/costumes, and weak bass. Joey jordison is good but I can think of at least 15 better drummers and I don't even play drums. They appeal to emo people. Every emo person I know has all hope is gone on their ipod. There are so many better bands than them.

Everytime I read your posts, the little voice in my head reading it..is reading it aloud in the voice of a man Downs Syndrome.

I think they're a great segway into metal...I think they're metal because they don't fit anywhere else..and frankly, that's the same with most metal bands. Except Manowar. They were born metal.
