Slipknot Top 10 – #7 “Disasterpiece”

Screen Shot 2014-10-02 at 11.40.51 AM

This has to be one of the most brutal, malevolent, grotesque and vicious songs I’ve encountered with Slipknot. For one, the title “Disasterpiece” is fantastic, so much so that they even used the same name for their Live DVDSecond, Corey Taylor uses the lyrics “Noises, noises, people make noises, people make noises when their sick” for the chorus. Third, the epic concluding break down at the 4:48 mark…

And finally, the note at the end of the song isn’t a scream, a lyric, a drum hit or even a guitar strum. Instead, my best guess is Corey dropping/throwing his headphones at the mic during his recording session in the vocal booth. There are so many reasons why “Disasterpiece” deserves to be #7 on my list, though the main reason is the sheer emotions evoked in the song.  Emotions were running very high during the recording of Iowa. In fact, Corey has said that Slipknot will never do a album like Iowa again. Reason why? “Because it almost killed us”.
