Woo, heavy metal band Slipknot just released their fourth studio album, All Hope Is Gone, last August 20th in Japan and today everywhere else. This promises to be their heaviest offering yet since their eponymous debut album, their second Iowa, and Vol: 3 (The Subliminal Verses). Two songs from this, the carrier single All Hope Is Gone and Psychosocial, have been playing on rock stations months before the album was made available in record stores, with the latter peaking at the 10th spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks. The reception for the album by industry critics have all been positive, with some giving one or two stars short of getting a perfect review. I'm listening to the album as I speak (er blog), and I couldn't hide my auricular satisfaction at having gotten an earful off its entirety just as it is released. Hmm, share or not, share or not? What the heck. Stream it here. If you know your way around, you might even be able to DL it.
