Slipknot has always been awful live. Now they're awful in the studio, too. Their music sounds like it got pulled out of Stone Sour's dumpster. Despite a handful of really heavy songs on their last couple albums, they no longer sound like 9 guys going apesh** like they did on their self-titled and Iowa. Now they sound like 5 dudes that are trying to write songs that their kids like.

It's bad enough that Ozzy and Sharon have turned their backs on their fans in the US. We made Ozzfest what it was and now we have to fly to Japan just to hear Stinkpot? P-P-P-P-PASS. They just know that the Japanese will spend money on ANYTHING American, so go ahead, Ozz, go where the bucks are.

I could do without Stone Sour and meh on Slash and friends but I'd love to catch Sabbath, Tool, Deftones and Slipknot together. Too bad I was in Japan last April with little (read: no) chance of going again any time soon.
