After six turbulent years, Slipknot returns with one of their heaviest and most intense body of work - 5: THE GRAY CHAPTER. Stretching from grief to anger and beyond, the album touches on the most difficult period of the band's career and serves as a tribute to a lost friend and bandmate. Led by the ferocious 'The Negative One' and the first single 'The Devil In I' the album ranges from the raw moments from the bands self-titled debut and follow-up Iowa to the dynamics of VOL. 3: THE SUBLIMINAL VERSES and ALL HOPE IS GONE. 5: THE GRAY CHAPTER is classic Slipknot while remaining fresh and innovative and proves Slipknot continues to be the premiere heavy band of this generation.
