As for my tastes regarding Slipknot, well, I obviously like them a lot and think they're one of the most significant American metal bands around today; I feel each of their albums has doubled the quality of its predecessor, thus making their first, self-titled album my least favorite and their latest, All Hope Is Gone, my absolute favorite. The band has showcased a substantial amount of growth from album to album (something I am quite akin to, as anyone who knows me will verify) throughout their career and I don't see that letting up anytime soon, assuming they continue after the unfortunate and sudden death of their bassist, Paul Gray.

I mean, seriously, Underoath has a Metal Archives page but Slipknot doesn't? ... come on people, just because it's well-known doesn't mean it's no good or, at the very least, not metal! Commence! :P
