‘Iowa‘, Slipknot’s second studio album is a dark, nihilistic, hectic, violent and multi-textured album. With a group as large as Slipknot (9 musicians), it could go either way for what each member of the group brings to each individual song as well as the project as a whole.

First thing to say about everyone’s favourite living ZOMBiES is that you can’t expect anything.
