Despite a whole bunch of tragedies, controversies and struggles, Slipknot have managed to stick around for a quarter of a century. With six studio albums, two live albums, twenty-five singles, and five video albums, their back catalogue offers a mammoth amount of material and a lot of lyrics for fans to remember.
The latest effort from the Iowa mosh kings managed to put a stop to critics who wondered if the group were past their prime. We Are Not Your Kind was a culmination of two years of solid writing and over 40 pieces of work, whittled down to make the fourteen track album.
Once again, the band's hard work paid off and it quickly became their best charting release, hitting number one in multiple markets.
The amount of work the band has done over the last 25 years is nothing short of incredible. From their humble days funding recording sessions out of their own pocket to hosting one of the biggest rock and metal festivals in the world, they have certainly earned every bit of success they currently have.
