I haven't heard enough Slipknot to be a fan of theirs, but this totally sucks. May 2010 is a bad month for metal music. I was just reading about how Evergrey got their bus burglarized and had to cancel concerts. A death in the band is certainly an unfortunate event, and it seems to be happening more often. RIP Paul Dedrick Gray.

Sad; he seemed like a cool guy. Too bad he didn't get help when he could have. I wasn't the biggest slipknot fan but it's always sad to see a life wasted.

I think its hard to distance Slipknot from metal, imo they fit under the broad category of "metal" well, unless your definition of it is slightly more narrow. It'd be hard to exclude them from it tbh.

Because Slipknot are a metal band. I would have thought you'd have to be fairly dense not to realise that. You're not dense are you?

Its just that a year ago this site did not include shit music like nu-metal, metalcore etc. And now-a-days all i see are bands being added like, trivium, killswitch engage, sliptknot, etc. Its just kind of annoying since the reason i like this site is it tried to avoid adding bands like these.
