There was a time in the early 2000's when I was searching for some new music to listen to. I was listening to a bit of hip hop at the time, and I was starting to get interested in metal again, so when I discovered Slipknot it was exactly what I was looking for at the time. Five years down the line, I was more interested in the traditional metal sounds from the 80's, and I no longer cared about Slipknot. When I heard they were releasing a new album this year, I wasn't really interested, but somewhere along the way I decided to check out one of the new songs for the hell of it. I queued up the song Unstainted, and much to my surprise, I found that I really enjoyed the song. I honestly can't believe that I'm listening to this in 2019.
I wasn't sure that I'd be able to hang with the whole album, but fuck me, there are some great songs on We Are Not Your Kind. I'm still not sure if I want to spend the money on the full album, but finding this 7 inch scratched that itch for the moment.
