  • SLIPKNOT To Perform Entire 'Iowa' Album At This Year's KNOTFEST
    Posted on August 26, 2016 at 19:20

    SLIPKNOT will perform its 2001 album "Iowa" in its entirety at the Ozzfest Meets Knotfest festival on Sunday, September 25 at San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, California. Says SLIPKNOT in a statement: "Fifteen years ago, something quite extraordinary happened. Nine men from Iowa went in to a studio in California and created one of the most chaotic and destructive albums ever made. It was, and still is, a shockingly physical and ferocious recording. To this day, it has never been performed in its entirety. That is about to change. "On Sept 25, 2016, at Knotfest in San Bernardino, 30,000 people will experience an event that has NEVER been done before. It will be a dense and serious spectacle, both visually and sonically. "But you'll be able to say 'you were there." "So... Will you be there?" "Iowa" went on to become a huge international success, spawning hits including "Disasterpiece", "The Heretic Anthem", "People = Shit" and "Left Behind". Regarding what SLIPKNOT was trying to achieve with "Iowa", frontman Corey Taylor told Metal Hammer that the band did not want to put out a rehash of its 1999 self-titled debut and the LP's hit single "Wait And Bleed". "Everyone and their mom was trying to get us to write ten more 'Wait And Bleeds', but fuck you, we've already done that," he said. "Why would we want to do it again? "For us, it was really about being rabid, being wasted, and still being young enough to back it up. Our whole goal was to go in and make this dense, destructive album. We had no idea how destructive it was going to be." Taylor believes SLIPKNOT more than accomplished its goal with "Iowa". He told Metal Hammer: "You can hear the bile in it, you can hear the frenetic passion for what we were trying to do. I think we overshot it… I think we bypassed what we were trying to do and achieved something completely different, which was to create the heaviest album that would be picked up by a popular audience who didn’t really know what they were getting themselves into." Ozzfest Meets Knotfest is a combination of the two hard rock and metal events that will take place on Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25 at San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds. BLACK SABBATH will top the Ozzfest bill on September 24, while SLIPKNOT will lead the Knotfest lineup the next day. Also on the Ozzfest portion are DISTURBED, OPETH, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and others, while the Knotfest lineup includes SLAYER, TRIVIUM, ANTHRAX, SUICIDE SILENCE and many more. Taylor explained how the meeting of the festivals came together. "You know, building our own festival, it just made sense if we could put this together and make the last North American show for BLACK SABBATH absolutely monumental," he said. "So we made some calls and we were able to put it together and once it was done, it was done like that. So I'm very, very, very proud that we could put this together." Both days will feature three stages, with one of them named after late MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister. The San Manuel Amphitheater and Festival Grounds is where Ozzfest began in 1996 and where Knotfest was staged last year. Ozzfest, which began in 1996, has not been a traveling festival in the U.S. since 2007's "free" edition. The show morphed into a one-off event in Dallas in 2008, took 2009 off and played just six cities in 2010. Knotfest, meanwhile, staged its third annual event last year and second as a Southern California weekend destination festival. […]

  • Watch DEFTONES Perform At Los Angeles's Greek Theatre
    Posted on August 26, 2016 at 18:25

    Heavy Metal Greg has uploaded video footage of DEFTONES' entire August 24 performance at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Check out the video below. The band's setlist was as follows: 01. Rocket Skates 02. Geometric Headdress 03. Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away) 04. Rickets 05. Diamond Eyes 06. Rosemary 07. Swerve City 08. Gore 09. Kimdracula 10. Digital Bath 11. Prince 12. (L)MIRL 13. Knife Prty 14. Change (In the House of Flies) 15. Passenger Encore: 16. My Own Summer (Shove It) 17. Headup Encore 2: 18. Bored 19. Engine No. 9 DEFTONES is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "Gore", which debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200, having shifted 71,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 14. It was the band's highest-charting effort since their self-titled fourth album bowed and peaked at No. 2 in 2003. "Gore" serves as the follow-up to 2012's "Koi No Yokan", which featured the Top 15 rock radio hit "Tempest". The new disc features a guest appearance from ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell. DEFTONES singer Chino Moreno told U.K.'s Kerrang! magazine about the new album title: "If you look at the title and the artwork, it's about a juxtaposition that, for me, is very beautiful. "I think DEFTONES have always flirted with dynamic and that yin-and-yang of things that are provocative and things that are beautiful. Where our last two album titles were a lot more optimistic, I think this title is intentionally different. This record is very different. "I feel like 'Diamond Eyes' and 'Koi No Yokan' were brother-sister records in a lot of ways. They were both recording in the same way. And even though it was a tough few years we went through while making those records, I think it was important to have their optimistic outlook." Moreno also spoke in more detail about the making of "Gore". He said: "We recorded this record in a different way. I'm not saying we went in with any preconceived ideas as such, but I do think we went in knowing that we wanted to make this record a little different from the last two. And I feel, definitely, like we did that. It's still a DEFTONES record — we didn't really have any new influences that changed that — but it's an expansion of what we were comfortable with. And it's important to get out of your comfort zone sometimes witch the music — just to be excited. It's got a different look. A different shade of color. I'd say some shade of purple. I don't know why, but I think it sits somewhere between pink, red and purple. Sometimes when I hear music, I see color, and when it came time to work on the artwork for this batch of songs, I knew exactly what I wanted." […]
