Slipknot, Iowa

£60.00

Fuelled by two years of high-pressure touring, Iowa (named after the Midwestern US state the group come from) saw Slipknot unleash a torrent of pent-up fury. Percussionist Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan conceptualised the album cover, which reflects a collection of songs he described as ‘threat to ourselves and a direct threat to the world about just who we are’. Flirting with Satanic imagery, the heavily shadowed goat’s head, placed against a stark white background, appears almost ready to charge at the onlooker. Slipknot’s fans embraced the confrontation, sending the album to the top spot in the UK charts, and to No 3 in the US.
