Slipknot: Corey (vocals); Mick, James (guitar); Paul (bass); Joey (drums); Shawn, Chris (percussion); Craig (samples); Sid (DJ).Recorded at Sound City and Sound Image, Van Nuys, California."Left Behind" was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.The two most anticipated hard rock/heavy metal releases of 2001 were unquestionable Tool's LATERALUS and Slipknot's sophomore effort, IOWA. The nine-piece masked band has returned with another platter of bile-spitting, hate-filled rage rock, certain to please fans of their self-titled 1999 debut. Despite the debut instantly making the band a promising metal contender (going platinum with absolutely no radio or MTV play), the intensity level hasn't dipped in the slightest on their second platter. Producer Ross Robinson is once again back on board, and IOWA delivers from beginning to end, as evidenced by such angst-filled, explosive tracks as "People = S***," "The Heretic Anthem," and "Left Behind," to name but a few. IOWA is surely destined to be the album that catapults Slipknot to the top of the heavy metal heap. It serves as the perfect soundtrack for disaffected teenage metalheads the world over.

...Brutal, unrelenting, scorching...
3 1/2 stars out of 5 - ...The barely relenting, tumbling noise attack marshalled by nu-metal uber-producer Ross Robinson is expert...
8 out of 10 - ...Exhilarating, brutal and good....Like the art of the insane, every possible space is covered in scrawl and cymbals...
4 stars out of 5 - ...A punk pipebomb pointed at the mainstream and ready to blow...
