Fans Wanting New Slipknot Getting Old Slipknot

Iowa

I know some Slipknot fans. Fine folks, actually — despite their love for Slipknot.

Yes, they all mourned the death of Paul Gray, and yes, they’re anxiously awaiting Slipknot’s next move on the recording front — will they or won’t they? They are not getting answers — at least not the kind they want. Corey Taylor says it’s too soon, and Clown agrees.

Poor maggots. These people want new Slipknot tunes like I want Kate Upton’s delicious muff all over my face.

Well, those wanting a new album from Slipknot can — on October 18 — buy Iowa instead, again. Because any self-respecting Slipknot fan owns that disc. Looks like those waiting for new shit will be holding their wangs for a while.

ThePRP claims the 10th anniversary edition of the 2002 LP, named for Slipknot’s home state, will be digitally remastered and feature 2 CDs and a single DVD. ThePRP, all over shit today…but still making bad jokes. Tsk, tsk.

So, Iowa, which cost Roadrunner a fucking arm and a leg due to it’s ultra-expensive packaging, will be re-released. Hurrah!

I wonder if this will make it three times the label’s released this album in some form, because I know Roadrunner loves to re-release shit, like, six months after the initial disc drops. Hmm. Let me ponder.

    Iowa was easily the best, and the last good Slipknot album that was released.

    Iowa the best?…………….not by a long shot.  Actually their worst by far.  I’m a huge Slipknot fan but could do without that album except for 2 or 3 songs.
