Default Opinions on Stone Sour and Slipknot?

Well, what do you think of them? I lean Stone Sour because it's just more awesome. Also, House of Gold and Bones (p1) didn't have a bad song on it, while Slipknot's stuff can get a bit tedious at times.

Heh, what a coincidence. "Absolute Zero" was on the radio not long ago

Stone Sour has it's moments, when Slipknot got out of their rap-rock phase they started getting good. Vol 3: The Subliminal Verses is still one of my favorite albums.

First Slipknot album was excellent, loved the hip hop/drum and bass elements with some proper chugging riffs. Angry, angry album.

Don't listen to their other albums much as I hate the ballady bollocks they tend to drift into. Never listened to Sour Stone. Heard them as I was packing up my tent at Download but that was about it.

Someone gave me a CD of early Slipknot bootleg stuff and it was sick, sounded like it was recorded in someones bathroom but was angrily awesome.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

I always respected their chops, but never liked their music. I prefer my death metal more structured and at times melodic.

I think I remember headbanging in your lounge to that at some point whilst very very drunk

Melodic death is great. I can't take random screaming and bashing unless it's used as juxtaposition with the more melodic content.

Have some Stone Sour to chew on. Check out all of it, but tracks 2, 3, 6, 9 and 11 if in a rush. I really like them. Others don't. You might think a lot of it is 'ballady bollocks', but some songs are much heavier.

I don't think I've ever met anyone (none who I've asked anyway - I tend to only talk about music to those who share my taste, or similar) who likes it as a constant stream of screaming. There has to be melody, I find. That's part of the reason I find Stone Sour's softer stuff quite good.

Anaal Nathrakh is about as extreme as I'll get. They still have overarching melodies to most of their stuff, and it's technically impressive.

Stone Sour is hit or miss for me. The magic aint there for me. Slipknot's first album was half awesome, and the other half was just noise. First 5-6 song (and the removed song Purity) and that was it for me. Then maybe 3 songs on Iowa. Then maybe two songs on Vol 3 because they just lost that pure violence and hate thanks to Corey toning it down for Stone Sour. All Hope is Gone was a pleasant surprise for me, and I enjoyed pretty much the whole album.
