Song Of The Week: Slipknot - Psychosocial

Awright, your favourite American metalhead is back with a mainstream song this time.

As you all may most probably already know, famed American heavy metal band, Slipknot, has just released their latest album All Hope Is Gone a few months back.

These skilled Halloween costumers never fail to create that gritty and dark image within the realms of their catchy and mainstream-friendly tunes. However, their overall sound is a bit of a bother to me, and we shall touch on that in the review that will be released later on this month shall we. 

This Iowa band consists of 9 members, a LOT for a typical band. 

They are: Sid Wilson, Joey Jordison, Paul Gray, Chris Fehn, Jim Root, Craig Jones, Shawn Crahan, Mick Thomson, and Corey Taylor.

They have been around since 1995, which makes them one of the leaders of today's American heavy metal scene, and the hot single of theirs now is Psychosocial off of their 4th and latest studio album. 

                                        Masked Monsters: We love Halloween!

Looks scary, eh? Well don't worry, ultimately, musicians are just pure antics on-stage and just like any other regular human being off-stage. At least these masketeers make good music. From the dissonant opening guitar riff to the hardcore bursts of harsh vocals with catchy choruses thrown in the mix, this song would fulfill every metalhead's occasional mainstream fix. Go listen to it now!
