Slipknot performing at the Austin360 Amphitheater in Austin, Texas, September 2, 2015. Band members include Corey Taylor, Mick Thomson, Jim Root, Craig Jones, Sid Wilson, Shawn Crahan, Chris Fehn, Alessandro Venturella, and Jay Weinberg.
Slipknot is well known for its attention-grabbing image, aggressive style of music and energetic and chaotic live shows. The band enjoyed a somewhat meteoric rise to success following the release of their eponymous debut album in 1999. The 2001 follow-up album, Iowa, further increased the band's popularity. After a brief hiatus, Slipknot returned in 2004 with Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), before going on another hiatus and returning in 2008 with their fourth album, All Hope Is Gone, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. After a longer hiatus, Slipknot released their fifth studio album, .5: The Gray Chapter, in 2014. Additionally, the band has released a live album, 9.0: Live, a compilation album, Antennas to Hell, and four live DVDs. In 2015, the band headlined the UK's biggest hard rock and metal festival, Download Festival, for the third time. Source: Wikipedia)
