Slipknot - Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses (Violet Vinyl)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Slipknot returned with their third studio album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) in 2004. The record includes the singles "Duality", "Vermilion", "Vermilion Pt. 2" and "Before I Forget". It is the band's only album produced by Rick Rubin.
On this album, Slipknot redraw the boundaries of modern metal without sacrificing their frothing aggression. Mystical acoustic guitars dominate the grungy power ballad "Circle," while "The Nameless" is a dizzying pastiche of keyboard scribbles, choppy guitars, and a tranquil, harmony-heavy chorus. Even though Slipknot's nu-metal roots are never far from the surface - especially on the boiling-tar riffs of "Pulse of the Maggots" and the rap-inflected vocal cadences of "Welcome"- Vol. 3’s hulking grooves and breakneck rhythms obliterate any attempts at pigeonholing.
