Slipknot is a nine-piece heavy metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. The band's members are known for their matching jumpsuits, unique masks and numerical aliases. True to their genre, their music and concerts are aggressive and chaotic spectacles. Dating back to the release of their eponymous debut album in 1999, the band has published five studio albums to date.
Slipknot is going back on tour in the summer of 2015! Don't miss the Prepare for Hell Tour coming to an arena near you as the band performs in support of their latest album .5: The Gray Chapter.

Their albums and home videos have achieved Platinum-sales status, with Grammy indications in the "Best Heavy Metal" and "Best Hard Rock" categories for songs from all three of their albums. They recently won the 2006 Grammy for Best Metal Performance, with their song 'Before I Forget'.
In the video for "Before I Forget" they performed without their masks; however, the band members' faces are shown only as brief glimpses (mainly close-up shots on their eyes and mouths), with the camera focused mainly on their hands and instruments.
