Slipknot have posted a message on their website, confirming rumours of a European tour with Machine Head and Children Of Bodom. It reads as follows:

"Europe… your time has come.

"After spending the summer tearing up North America on the [Rockstar Energy] Mayhem tour, we will finally bring our chaos to you. Joining us on this journey this time around will be MACHINE HEAD and CHILDREN OF BODOM. It's been a long time coming… we know the European fans have been waiting for this. We are breathlessly waiting as well. We cannot wait to throw down with you.

"Remember, if it doesn't come from us, the choice is yours on whether or not to believe it. See you soon."

Slipknot's new, as-yet untitled album is scheduled for release on August 12th.

^ Manjo, the Rockstar mayhem is gonna be sh**! no offense but Disturbed is a band that cant play a damn good song live, Slipknot dosnt even have an original style (music, outfits), and all the other bands (except Black Tide their pretty good) dont even deserve to share a stage with Disturbed or Slipknot....now thats pathetic!
but this one might be good considering it has COB, their new album is actually pretty good...old stuff better though.
not a fan of Machine Head though either.

Slipknot is just a f***in' joke, thats all they are, ever were, and ever will be. Machine Head is just generic crap, I swear to god that band does nothing but follow trends, Losers. Machine Head gives head.

And as for Bodom, THEY'RE ONLY THE BEST f***IN' BAND ON THE PLANET!!!!
thats whit I think anyways......................

I haven't seen COB but I saw MH supporting Metallica last year and Slipknot at Download a few years ago. Machine Head were really good and Slipknot wasn't bad but both bands are overrated in my view. There really is nothing special about "The Blackening" it's just another metal album as far as I can tell. The album before it was better. It's not a bad album, but it's one of the most overrated albums ever.

We'll Euros, Enjoy Bodom. I saw them at Gigantour in London, Ont and it was killer. Machine Head is good, not amazing, but still worth seeing live. Don't know what to say about Slipknot other than Corey Taylor is kinda queer!

to post #9 & 10 listen to Burn My Eyes
The Blackening is good, it just has a lot of really long song and i can see how that might turn some people away. Through the Ashes of Empires is really good too.
They are GREAT live
