5. ‘All Hope Is Gone’

During one of the bleakest points for the band, the nine-piece released an album with a name indicative of the inner-turmoil they were facing. At the top of their game popularity wise, the band released ‘All Hope Is Gone,’ a record with many peaks and valleys. Many of the album’s tracks wound up sounding confused. Tracks like “Butcher’s Hook” had excellent elements but befuddling choruses that brought things down a bit. A solid listen for sure, but an uneven one when viewed in full.

4. ‘.5 – The Gray Chapter’ (2014)

Nobody had any idea where the band would go after the tragic passing of bassist Paul Gray, not even Slipknot themselves. In many ways, the band delivered a record returning themselves to their heaviest work and even beyond. Producer Greg Fidelman helped the band achieve an incredibly impressive range of sounds on the album, with guitars sounding chunkier than ever. They created rippers like “The Devil In I,” “The Negative One” and “Skeptic.” It’s heavy as hell, but loses some of the ultra-tight songwriting of previous releases.

3. ‘Slipknot’ (1999)

The album that broke the band still stands strong today. Venomous rippers like “Spit It Out,” “Eyeless” and “No Life” provided a level of bounce and thunder for the band to build off, incorporating elements of hip-hop catchiness with undeniable heaviness.

Back-ended by brutal tracks “Welcome” as well as their most vulnerable of tracks at the time “Vermillion Pt. 2,” it’s an album of their most balanced and accessible material for any listener.

1. ‘Iowa’ (2001)

Slipknot proved themselves to not be a flash in the pan novelty act on ‘Iowa,’ instead delivering an album that remains one of the genre’s best. It’s the platonic ideal of what heavy metal, hard rock and nu-metal’s convergence should sound like. Totally indifferent to radio performance, the band let themselves write some of their most vicious and compelling material on songs like “Heretic Anthem” and “The Shape.” Corey Taylor sounds crazed and genuinely at his wits end on the album, raising the stakes higher and firmly planting the foundation for their future success and world domination.

The vocalist additionally revealed that the band has 20 songs that they’ve demoed. “They’re actually, actually good,” mentioned Taylor. “It’s going to simply come all the way down to which of them come out the perfect, and we take that, we make the album out of that, put the album out. Nonetheless, the best way we’re speaking proper now, we’re looking for ways in which everybody can hear all of the songs. So we’ll put the album out, after which possibly we’ll launch one thing after that.”
