After over 5 million albums sold in the US, Slipknot returns with their most powerful statement yet, "All Hope Is Gone." Filled with the fury people have come to expect from Slipknot as well as some extraordinary surprises, this album is the culmination of the band's 9 unique members, 3 platinum albums and their 10 year journey at the top of the Hard Rock genre. The album is a cohesive statement about the world today and truly cements the band as on of Rock's heavyweights. This is the amended version.

Reviews:

You know Spencer's Gifts is psyched about this one. (Does Spencer's Gifts still even exist? We haven't been to the mall in ages.) The Des Moines nonet's new masks should get tees flying off the racks; hell, if we were Spencer's CEO we'd be ordering foam replicas of those damn things in bulk. But this is all old news; Slipknot have always boasted a strong, iconic visual presence. Here's the bonus (and the point): The new tunes are fierce enough to justify the fanfare. The title track in particular is a no-B.S. thrash assault that (naturally) flaunts the boys' brilliant percussive teamwork. And while we're happy that frontman Corey Taylor has an outlet for decompression in the form of Stone Sour, he excels as the polysyllabic, frothing leader of this pack of wild animals. The only question is how Hope will play in a world that frowns upon even the vestiges of nu-metal.
