Default Slipknot-Your thoughts

Hey guys, i made this poll after i went on a session through youtube. I noticed lots an lots of negative comments on Slipknots videos.

I would just like to know what you guys think of them, i personally think they are amazing, and aren't in any way 'posers' or 'fakes'. I love the unique sound they produce on all their albums and the wide range of musical talent within the band. They manage to put on one hell of a show mainly because of the huge and dedicated fan base, me being one of them and that is one of the reasons i think so highly of them.

So what do you recon to them? ???

Their okay, it's just not my style. But for the kind of metal that they play they are pretty good.

I'm just not a fan of growls and screams and that. More of a really high pitched voice.

I don't understand why people say they suck. They play their intsterments very well and keep with their point. So for there style I would say they are great, just not my stlye, so I put great...

Im a bit 50:50 about them. Yes they are Nu-metal. Yes they scream shout and rave. But theres a good number of songs that always get me whenever I listen to them - Duality, Before I forget, Circle, Left Behind, My Plague.

I don't know where I stand to be fair.

I actually like Slipknot, they may be ridiculous but they're still crazy heavy metal... Even though some people still call them 'Nu-metal' they really aren't, they're just heavy. Look at Pulse of the Maggots or Opium of the People, there are guitar solos all over the place, and not just random notes like other 'Nu-metal' bands have...

I wonder how long it will be before Wargamer comes in here and starts spouting off about how he only listens to 'true' metal and that nonsense :

I would like them except I have yet to find a single song in their repertoire I like. I'm glad they're there to fill the tastes of those who do like that kind of music, I just can't listen to it personally.

Excuse the Final Fantasy video though

Or if you prefer something a little more heavy:

I'll check it out later, SILK, but don't be surprised if I've got nothing positive to say. The style they use, the overall sound of the band...just can't find a way to like it.

Don't worry - both songs are completely diferent from Slipknots traditional style. No uncomprehensible screeming, more in the style of machine head - understanderble but with some grit. Circle is nice and smooth and completely opposite of their normal work. Hell, my dad couldn't tell that they were Slipknot - and hes a Judas Priest nut.
