All Hope is Gone

Owing to the death of Paul Gray of Slipknot I have decided to feature a different band as part of Tuesday’s RetroBlog.

The first Slipknot album I listened to was their debut, and while good, I was not really minded to keep up with subsequent releases. So, in light of recent events I decided to give the more recent release, All Hope Is Lost, a listen. I was surprised, in a pleasant way, how much their sound had changed from the first album. If you have not done so already, check it out.

Here is the link to the album on Spotify –

Track listing:

  1. .execute.
  2. Gematria (The Killing Name)
  3. Sulfur
  4. Psychosocial
  5. Dead Memories
  6. Vendetta
  7. Butcher’s Hook
  8. Gehenna
  9. This Cold Black
  10. Wherein Lies Continue
  11. Snuff
  12. All Hope Is Gone

Slipknot Bassist Gray Found Dead in Iowa Hotel

Posted in Alternative Metal, Heavy Metal, Nu Metal by newmusicexcess on May 25, 2010

I woke up this morning to find out that Paul Gray was found dead on Monday in an Iowa Hotel. There are going to be some very sad Slipknot fans. One of the original members, I understand.


Here he is on Behind The Player. I understand he was big into alternative tunings. Nice bass tone.


Let’s have something of the most recent album, Psychosocial from All Hope Is Lost.
