Slipknot – American rock band

The legendary rock band Slipknot was formed in 1992 by Shawn Crahan and Anders Colsefni. The young artists were friends and enjoyed the same songs. One day, they decided to create new music together. Shawn was a drummer while Anders was a vocalist.

Soon, the two friends found another member, Paul Gray. The artists called their trio Heads on the Wall and began rehearsing. However, Crahan was going through some personal problems, which didn’t allow the band members to continue their work. Next time, friends came together in 1995. They invited a guitar player Donnie Steele, a drummer Joey Jordison, and a rhythm-guitar player Kan Hong. Kan and Donnie were later replaced by Josh Brainard and Craig Jones. Later, Mick Thomson joined the band
After dealing with lineup changes, the band started working on a new album. Musicians came up with a new name, Slipknot. They found an original style and stuck with it. All members were coming onstage in scary masks while Anders put duct tape over his face. A year later, a talented vocalist Corey Taylor joined the group.

In 1996, Slipknot presented the debut LP, Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat. It came out on Halloween. The band released 1,000 copies, but hardly all of them were sold. Musicians realized that they needed a good producer, who could promote their work. They started working with Ross Robinson. After auditioning the band, Robinson saw a high potential. A year later, Slipknot signed its first contract with a label.

However, the remaining members didn’t confirm such rumors. Even though that period was tough on Slipknot, artists managed to cope and move forward, working on a new LP. Its release occurred in 2014. .5: The Gray Chapter was a tribute to Paul. It reached high spots on the charts and went gold in many countries. At the same time, the band filmed a music video for the single "The Negative One", which became a hit. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award.
