Description

Slipknot – self-titled 7″

Originally released in 1989. The original Slipknot (way ahead of the yucky nu-metal band of the same name) were picked-up by Rev’s co-owner Jordan Cooper from his hometown of New Haven, Connecticut (rather than Ray from Youth Of Today who selected the other bands for Rev). An untypical release for this label at this point in time as Slipknot were relative unknowns, with a sound that was less youth crew and was more along the lines of early Corrosion Of Conformity/Accused instead. Recorded by Don Fury, their sound was grimmier and rougher-edged by comparison to their labelmates who released 7″ EPs at this time (Gorilla Biscuits, Burn, Bold, Judge, etc.) and all the better for it, too – it suited their rabid ferocity, placing them closer to likes of Born Against and Citizens Arrest. This is the first time this EP has been re-pressed since 2013.
