Slipknot

Slipknot are an American heavy metal band from Iowa, formed in 1995. Their debut self-titled album was released in 1999, while the band immediately gained popularity. Their follow-up album Iowa was a major success in many countries and listed as one of the best albums of the 21 century. After a long hiatus following the death of Paul Gray and departure of Joey Jordison, both founding members of Slipknot, the band released its fifth album .5: The Gray Chapter in 2014. They are known for their brutal image and phenomenally chaotic and energetic live shows.
