    Ok I'm not metal fan, in fact Reinventing the Steel by Pantera was probably the last one I listened to all the way through without getting bored and reaching for something with a tune (I'm an indie/alt boy at heart, well what us Brits call indie/alt, anyway) but I recently just...erm downloaded...the new Slipknot album and I enjoyed it!

    Ok I've only heard their first 2 records and well the fast songs were good but I wasn't keen on the slow ones and as for Subliminal Verses, it just passed me, mainly as in 2004 I was too busy just being a drunk and sleeping around.

    Anyway I really liked it, even the one or two slow songs and will be buying a copy when it does hit the shops.

    So anyone else "digging it"?

    EDIT: Actually I did listen to St Anger by Metallica for like a week none stop, and then realised it was shit.

    Also I must stress that I don't consider Hard Rock to be Heavy metal, you know awesome stuff by Queens of the Stone Age and that.

    Slipknot is ok for me, but I like Metallica (80's only) and Slayer the best.

    I hope Metallica's new album Death Magnetic is good

    Im not really that in to Metal. Its not that I hate it, I actually like it sort of. The metal I do hear if its from a friend or whatever I like. I prefer metal over most rock music. I just tend not to download or go out of my way to listen. If I was to find a link saying good metal songs you should download right now I would listen.

    I've never been a fan of metal,though I know alot of people who are.

    Im more in to Daft Punk and stuff like that(electro,right?)

    Ontopic: Never liked Slipknot, but also, I didn't mind if some of their faster songs were played in the background somewhere, their album before this last one was complete failure, full of easy emo songs, and sucky singing/no screaming..
    I don't know about this new one, but I'm sure I won't be listing to it.....

    Their new album sucks horribly! I used to be a huge Slipknot fan but now I can't even stand to listen to any of their new stuff.

    I'm afraid that could be the very same thing I would think if I listened to the new record..

    I just really think they need to throw Corey's ass out. He is a bad vocalist, He was good on the first two albums and then he just went to shit.

    OH MY GOD, HAGAYDRIAN!
    YOU LISTEN TO SLIPKNOT? ALL HOPE IS GONE

    Excuse the horrible joke and pun, back on topic here, I enjoy some metal, but absolutely hate the people who say any other type of music sucks dick or makes you "less hardcore" and "a pussy".

    Not a fan of Slipknot myself although there's a song or two that I like by them.

    I can't say I listen to them that much, I just grabbed this just cos I can really.

    I'm open to all music with exception to Trance and Happy Hardcore cos they really suck badly.

    I hate to tell you this, but All Hope Is TRULY Gone...Metallica has been crap for ages. I gave a few songs off of this new Slipknot a listen and so far it blows that last piece out of the water. It's no Iowa, but it's not horrible either.

    Oh by the way, added you as a friend on last.fm although our music tastes aren't very similar. I just realised my profile makes me seem very uneclectic.
