Of all of the recent deaths in the metal/rock scene, I think this one hit me the hardest. Once you look past the masks and the whole exterior, Slipknot wrote some really well crafted and surprisingly intelligent songs and in my opinion don't get the credit they deserve.
It'll be interesting to see if they carry on after this, considering Paul was a founding member and wrote a lot of their songs. RIP.
I picked up the new Andrew WK album today, entitled "The Wolf". When I opened it up, I was happy to see that it looked identical to the first album, "I Get Wet" in every way...plain black with the same font and everything.
