I'm actually interested. I've developed an appreciation for Slipknot over the last year or so. Mostly because I really dig Stone Sour so figured "OK, let's go back and give this another shot".
And this new album is promised to be the next progression from the last one... i.e. less all-out unnecessary aggression, more thought.
New masks... this bit I don't care about. But I do want to see them live. I've not seen them yet. They're playing the Reading Festival with Metallica and Tenacious D at the end of August. I might try to hit that. If not, maybe the European tour they're doing with Machine Head.
