Slipknot - .5: The Gray Chapter
Nov 16, 2023

After the very generic All Hope is Gone, Slipknot returns with absolutely no changes in their sound and instead decides to double down on the sound shift and tries to make it sound a lot more appealing for their audience, and it sort of works? It is both more and less entertaining at the same time as they continue this very watered down Alt Metal sound that just gets super repetitive because every song here sounds alike. @HotelRestaurant pointed this out perfectly when they said, "I know Custer got a lot of traction on TikTok because the bpm and percussive patterns make it feel like a girlboss slay theme instead of the hardcore metal atmosphere they were going for. But, like... the whole album is like that." It doesn't surprise me personally Custer blew up with all these remixes, because that's how every song here is. A very generic and simple BPM with music that barely qualifies as fine. It is low effort from front to back and that's why Slipknot went down the drain. How did they start so good and then become so bleh in a matter of 15 years and 5 albums?
