Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses
Striking a perfect balance between the brutal and the beautiful, VOL. 3 THE SUBLIMINAL VERSES is an ideal introduction to Slipknot. The 2004 Roadrunner set was recorded with uber-producer Rick Rubin at his Laurel Canyon mansion, and though the sessions were initially a struggle, they paid off in a platinum-certified album that just missed topping the Billboard chart. Including such highlights as “Duality,” “Vermillion” and Best Metal Performance Grammy winner “Before I Forget,” these 14 originals prove that the Iowa band's intense approach can coexist with melody and traditional song structure. We'll crank up Slipknot's VOL. 3 THE SUBLIMINAL VERSES now in honor of March Metal Month.
