"We Don't Play Shows… We Start Wars": Slipknot – The Gigs That Made A Metal Monster

From unhinged performances in Des Moines’ smallest sweatboxes to the controlled chaos of their arena-conquering present day, the story of Slipknot is one that has been written on the stage. As they prepare to return to open this year’s We Are Not Your Kind World Tour on these shores, Corey Taylor and Clown look back on the defining shows of The Nine’s lives…

This week's issue also features a double-sided cover to celebrate the return of The ’Knot!

On top of that, there's a free Slipknot art print courtesy of illustrator Vance Kelly – who has worked with the likes of Ghost, Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer!

Elsewhere in the issue, Faith No More reveal all about their upcoming live comeback, and there's a huge 2020 preview with looks at what Biffy Clyro, Green Day, A Day To Remember, All Time Low, Ozzy Osbourne, PVRIS, Neck Deep, The Ghost Inside, Behemoth and more are going to get up to across the next 365 days.
