The Heretic Anthem

Slipknot : Iowa 10th Anniversary Edition
It's been 10 years since SLIPKNOT unleashed its second album, "Iowa", on the world. SLIPKNOT had impacted the music scene in revolutionary, unpredictable ways and established themselves as a way of life for their fans with their self-titled 1999 debut.

But "Iowa" was the album that further proved the band had fully arrived and had no intentions of leaving. It was the band's statement that that they would continue to make music their way, according to their rules and always for their fans, with their middle fingers pointed firmly at the rest of the world.

To celebrate the album's decade of existence, the band is releasing a special, tenth-anniversary edition of this landmark release, which will drop on November 1.

The anniversary edition will include plenty of extras for the maggots and beyond to feast upon. Disc One will comprise the original "Iowa" album along with a remix of "My Plague" as an added bonus track.
Disc Two will include the full live audio from the legendary "Disasterpieces" DVD, where the band's 2002 show at the London Arena was captured by 30 cameras and released as a concert film. The DVD will include "Goat", a new film directed by M. Shawn Crahan featuring never-before-seen interviews and footage showing the madness that surrounded the "Iowa" era, plus four music videos.

Oh my God...
It's already 10 years since Slipknot second Album, Iowa
I still remember when they announced the second album
My surfacing and I literally jumped hysterically

Iowa Album Cover (2001)

We've waited impatiently until the first single "The heretic Anthem" released
The first debut was Live at Conan O' Brien
We didn't stop talking about it for weeks

I'm so thrilled with the new mask and jumpsuit
The album was so fierce definitely different from the first one
Matured and brutal
Death Metal all the way

He bought the Japanese Digipack Album at Kedai Aunty, Pertama Complex
and I bought mine at Music Exchange months later
10 years later,
no more music exchange
No. 2 passed away (RIP Paul Gray)
and we're getting married this year

What Slipknot has to do with our relationship?
Every words, every moves, every pieces
that sparks the chemistry between us comes from Slipknot.
and it blossoms into wonderful connections.

Having said that,
this 10th anniversary edition album is very personal to me.
Definitely gonna get it once released.

Forget the fact that we need more money now...ngeee
After all we don't have to buy 2 sets anymore :)
