I generally overlook my deep intentions to write about music because I feel that “MUSIC” has resemblance with something heavenly as it has the capacity to make or break your mood and it is hard to describe it in words but there is a little thought change that happened in my brain after listening to “a few” screams being recognized as music in today’s world.
SLIPKNOT is how they call themselves and SLIP + KNOT is how you can try to make out their intentions. Their screams are loud and piercing, sometimes resembling an ultrasonic sound which is beyond the audible frequency of human ears. They abuse you and they mask it in the deafening guitar strums and drum beats. Still they make people crazy because they make them believe that music is not only about feeling godly but also about feeling devilish. Humans were always blind followers of someone who stepped on a path different from the rest without recognizing whether the path is rational or insane. A group of creatures stand in front of them wearing some dirty masks on their faces and they turn up in a huge population just to hear some curses and abuses.
“CAN I HEAR SOME FUCKING NOISE, YOU MOTHERFUCKERS,” is what they say standing on the stage and the crowd enacts a pack and howls as if they are giving birth to some 666 incarnation right at the moment. I see that and I feel ashamed to be born as one of them.
God gave us birth to create beautiful things, nevertheless we are more than happy to feel like a MAGGOT and a BASTARD and a DOG.
KUDOS SPLIPKNOT and all the bands sharing qualities akin to them, you have proved that,
“JESUS EXISTED IN PAST BUT THE PAST IS ALWAYS A FUCKING PAST.”
