    20 years since their debut, Slipknot are as bold, fearless and exhilarating as ever.

    We Are Not Your Kind is an astonishing record, a roaring, horrifying delve into the guts of the band’s revulsion, a primal scream of endlessly inventive extreme metal and searing misanthropy.

    With their latest studio album, Slipknot have released one of the strongest albums in their career. When it comes to We Are Not Your Kind, Slipknot live up to the title.

    Overall, it’s an album designed to thrill and perhaps tentatively expand their fanbase, while the fiercely synth-rocking Solway Firth duly raises a middle finger to everybody else.

    More than anything else, We Are Not Your Kind feels locked-in on a personal level -- that aforementioned sense of melancholy resides uncomfortably close to the surface throughout -- and that human touch resonates, even as the band unleashes volley after volley of tribal rhythms, scorching riffage, and fathomless decibels.

    The album is a tad long, but the diversity in sounds and use of ambient noise make it clear this is to be listened to from beginning to end. There are plenty of single-worthy songs for casual listeners, while offering dedicated fans a more fulfilling experience by pacing the record's heavy moments.

    For better or for worse, Kind is a Slipknot record, one that has more to offer than expected and is still sometimes frustratingly short-sighted.

    You want Iowa, the self titled and Vol.3 combined in one brutally melodic fashion then this is your album. Creepy samples, eerie intros,You want Iowa, the self titled and Vol.3 combined in one brutally melodic fashion then this is your album. Creepy samples, eerie intros, beautifully crafted ballads and rip roaring choruses. Definitely worth a shot for the Grammys Expand

    Without a doubt, Slipknot's best work since Iowa. A combination of Iowa and the best parts of Vol. 3, with plenty of experimentation.

    Possibly one of their best. Relentless drum bashing metal brilliance from start to finish

    We Are Not Your Kind is simply the greatest sensory experience of Slipknot and Nu Metal.

    Between renew and old style. A good Slipknot album! Need some full listening to appreciate it but after that, just listen it again and again.

    Although some guitar, sample and keyboard layers and a slight signal of maturity, it's still a kind of sound that you can wait came from Slipknot.
