    No, with those cities could nearly guess the Arenas even.

    They brought Knotfest to France a month ago.

    What would be the venue for this? Is it indoor?

    Savage, I love going to gigs there so intimate and great sound. This is a sure sell out.

    It's what 10k capacity and it's not a 360 arena, the sounds go in one direction so ya it's intimate enough. It's more an ampitheatre than arena.
    In comparison to the Manchester arena or the O2 London with double the capacity.

    Literally lists the 2 biggest arenas in the UK :pac:

    Enjoy hearing your argument as I said this truly fascinates me :P

    Between the teaser songs from the new album and now Dublin as the kick off to the European tour, dare I say it I'm frickin excited.
    I've been a follower of the knot for neigh on 20years at this stage. Jaysus they're daycent.

    No argument mate I just think it's a treat that we get to see them in a smaller venue compared to an outdoor gig. It's more the setup of the 3 that makes it intimate than the size.

    Anyway it's 20 years as a teen I was headbanging to the self titled album and I've never seen them live. Really excited for this one.

    I meant in terms of putting your discussion forward not any ill will ;)

    Personally wouldn't usually be describing any venue over 1k as intimate.

    Should be a good one for sure hopefully confirmation of the date very soon.

    I don't think much of this new song, I appreciate his voice in it but it did nothing for me, it was the first time a show i've been at has been in a music video so i did enjoy seeing that.

    They didn’t sell it out last time with Korn supporting should be fine for picking up tickets later to be honest.

    I absolutely love this tune.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,849 ✭✭✭✭ Lithium93_


    It's a solid closing track.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,221 Jurgen The German


    Any idea what date the gig is?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,736 ✭✭✭ Degag


    Not date yet for this. Wonder will it be announced to coincide with the album release on Friday?


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,849 ✭✭✭✭ Lithium93_


    They've dropped another track ahead of the album's release on Friday.

    I'm guna wait for the CD.
    Woo!


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,155 ✭✭✭✭ rob316


    What does everyone think?

    Some stuff I really like some not so much. I'll give it a few more listens before I really judge it.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 1,074 ✭✭✭ LoughNeagh2017


    In my opinion that was the worst album of theirs, maybe even worse than All Hope Is Gone, very little of this album clicked with me musically and I was glad to here it finish. I will stick with my Subliminal Verses CD and leave all of you with this one.

    Very much Iowa x Vol. 3, could have done without so much of the interludes. But that's just after a first spin.

    It's growing on me, better than the gray chapter anyway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,413 ✭✭✭✭ Panthro


    It needs 2 or 3 listens but it is daycent. For me the standout is Unsainted.

    That said, I can't understand why Birth Of The Cruel was released. I think Orphan is a much better track. Nero Forte is borderline bizzare with its chorus, but ya can't help but like the catchy groove. Critical Darling is quite good. Proper Slipknot stuff.

    Liars Funeral, wow. Corey roaring "burn! Burn! Burn the liar!" will haunt dreams. Red Flag is another solid slipknot tune. Spiders is very different but kinda fun in a fuct up sense.
    Soloway firth to finish is a good tune.
    I'm missing a few I'm sure.

    My only, only gripe is I wish All out Life was on the flipping album. Even as a hidden bonus. Hell, I've had stuck it in as the 2nd song.
    For me, they've delivered.
    Thank fcuk.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,155 ✭✭✭✭ rob316


    Ya they definitely weakend the album leaving "all out life" out but I'd imagine that's a **** you to Fehn as they recorded it with him.

    The Grey Chapter was a very good album, I listen to it when mowing the lawn.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,849 ✭✭✭✭ Lithium93_


    The Gray Chapter was their equivalent of Metallica's ...And Justice For All.

    The loss of a key band member, and the will they or won't they carry on hanging over them at the time.
