Whether you love ’em, hate ’em, or only care so much as to want to know what Corey Taylor thinks about a certain topic, it’s undeniable that Slipknot know how to put on a fucking show. From their getups to the theatrics on stage, to the pyro and insane energy, the nonet from Iowa are a must-see band.
With their next album The End, So Far less than 24 hours away from release, Drew Nesbitt, of Njorodynphoto, headed over to the Germania Insurance Amphiteheater this past Tuesday to document the sensory carnage that’s not just Slipknot’s antics, but the performances of Ice Nine Kills and Crown the Empire.
From what you can see in the galleries below, Slipknot’s current iteration is firing on all cylinders, even if some members of the band are a little hesitant about how people will receive the new album.
Time is running out to catch Slipknot on this particular stretch of dates, since things will shut down after the tour’s last show in Irvine, California. For a full list of remaining dates, take a peek below:
Sat Oct 1 Albuquerque, NM Isleta Amphitheater
Sun Oct 2 Phoenix, AZ Ak-Chin Pavilion
