Slipknot Top 10 – #5 “Eyeless” & “Wait And Bleed”

Screen Shot 2014-10-16 at 12.19.53 PM

#5 was extremely hard to choose from, so I opted not to and chose both Eyeless Wait And Bleed. Both songs are prolific bangers with only one thing in mind…Destruction! Eyeless begins with a scratch track from Sid, which then whirls into a guitar screech, massive drums then Corey’s scream. But the most compelling part of Eyeless is the chorus: “You can’t see California without Marlon Brendo’s EYES”. Rumour has it that a homeless man was screaming and repeating this phrase over and over during their time in California. Significance? I have no idea; but hell, it works. Or you can just skip to the 3:28 mark to understand my love for this song…

And then comes Wait And Bleed, the counterpart of Eyeless off their Self-Titled album. This One-Two punch of Eyeless Wait And Bleed is a unbelievable combination of heart pulsing grunge metal, while Corey punctures another fascinating chorus that takes precedence over the rest of the song. Eyeless holds you up and Wait And Bleed knocks you down, both working in tandem to give you as much chaos as possible.

# 4…Coming Soon
