Oh, I’ll never kill myself to save my soul
I was gone, but how was I to know?
I didn’t come this far to sink so low
I’m finally holding on to letting go – Unsainted, Slipknot – We Are Not Your Kind

Unsainted is a song and a single from the album that I have been relistening over and over again. We Are Not Your Kind is the sixth studio album from Slipknot that was released on August the 9th, 2019. I am totally satisfied with this album and see why the album has been selling as number one during the past few weeks. Whatever the sub-genre you would describe the album as if you like heavy and modern, this one is for you.

Receiving a positive reaction all around, people have commented that is bold and as exhilarating as ever. Cristhian Perez commented on YouTube that it is “A real album of Slipknot,”. Read the comments alone on any review or comment, fans of Slipknot from since they formed will collectively say it was better than expected. Hundreds of millions of people have viewed the official music videos of the songs from this album and they are visually impressive in their own right.

The other day I finished listening to this album in order. And now I can confidently say that this album is their best in my opinion and it beats the former best in Iowa. Corey Taylor, the lead singer’s vocals once again make each song unique while sounding even better with all songs sounding different to a certain point. And there are rhythms slow and fast with the vocals making some original songs you need to listen to if Slipknot is something you like or are interested in.


Today, up on this hill
I’m counting all the killers
They sway as they swarm
A look of gluttons in their eyes
They mutter as the body loses warmth
They pick your bones like locks inside a tomb. And take great care to not take care of you – Solway Firth, Slipknot – We Are Not Your Kind
