Their self-titled debut, unleashed on June 29, 1999, garnered critical acclaim and swiftly became a fan favorite. It represented a paradigm shift in metal, departing from conventional norms to explore new sonic territories. Despite humble expectations, Slipknot’s meticulous songwriting and Ross Robinson’s dynamic production propelled the album to unprecedented success.

Guitarist Jim Root reminisces about those early days, where success seemed uncertain but aspirations were high. Yet, their determination and passion carried them through, leading to sold-out shows, chart-topping albums, and a Grammy win for “Before I Forget” from their album Vol. 3.

In the ensuing years, Slipknot’s influence surged, rivaling even their musical idols. With billions of streams, millions of followers, and a slew of accolades, including numerous platinum and gold certifications, Slipknot solidified their status as trailblazers in the industry.

Their creation of the Knotfest festival in 2012 further cemented their legacy, evolving into a global phenomenon and providing a platform for emerging artists.

Approaching their 25th anniversary, Slipknot aims to reconnect with fans on a personal level, reminiscent of their early interactions. Shawn “Clown” Crahan expresses their commitment to maintaining that intimate connection amidst their massive success, promising an unforgettable celebration for fans old and new.
