Over the years some acts have grown alongside our festival. The nine-headed hydra called Slipknot made their first appearance here in 2004. At the time they had already established a solid live reputation and it was obvious they were destined for greatness. The following year they headlined the main stage for the first time. A whirlwind of talent of emotion is an excellent way to describe the troupe from Des Moines, Iowa. Musically the band kept growing but in between his full roster for Slipknot, frontman Corey Taylor nevertheless found the time to set up a successful side project with Stone Sour. Slipknot are a household name and welcome guests at GMM. Together with their music, their live show has developed into an entertainment event of the highest order. Their new album ‘The End, So Far’ has provided them with fresh ammunition to once again lay waste to the world’s biggest stages and leave the metal masses clamouring for more. Once labelled as the future of metal and the flagbearers of metalcore, Slipknot have meanwhile become the mouthpiece of an entire generation – several generations, in fact. Variation is one of the hallmarks of their discography: from the melodic ‘Wait and Bleed’ to the fragile ‘Snuff’ across the ripping ‘Before I Forget’ to the more recent ‘The Dying Song (Time to Sing)’. And when it’s ‘time to set the record straight’ you all know what to do: jump the fuck up! #GMM23
