Gig review: Slipknot, Leeds

Everytime I've seen Slipknot they always bring fantastic support bands on tour and this time it was in the form Sikth and Suicidal Tendencies, last year it was Korn and King 810.

Slipknot never disappoint and just seem to grow bigger and better year after year. In metal there was once the big four Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer but with Slipknot surpassing half of those surely they have moved to as big as, if not bigger than some of the big 4.

Slipknot had a giant screen as a backdrop that was playing all kinds of typically strange, artistic and wonderful things.The footage was cleverly edited including footage from Slipknots videos.

Slipknot’s songs Psychosocial and Dead Memories went down a storm as always along with Spit it out.

The band’s breaking album Iowa seemed to get lots of attention this could be because as Corey said ‘this is their 15th year’.

The Leeds crowd was a big one and an enthusiastic one, with circle pits throughout the whole set of Slipknot and Suicidal Tendencies the crowd heaped constant praise from Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor.

The atmosphere at Leeds was as good as it gets lets hope Slipknot come to Leeds again.
