Morning All, Metal Mornings 10 Today all I wanna do is scream at the top of my lungs. Cue the Metal Maniacs from Des Moines, Iowa, Slipknot. The third cut from their self-titled album, Eyeless, with one of my favorite lines: “You can’t see California without Marlon Brando’s eyes.”
This is a live version of Eyeless from 2000. The band is raw, hyped and brutally savage. Joey’s drums pierce your skull with their rhythmic heaviness, and Corey’s voice is gloriously guttural. Watching Mr. Seven’s hair-spinning head banging is hypnotic as his head goes round and round and round. Some of the most intense live metal you’ll hear anywhere. The music hits your chest like a semi, it makes you want to run through a wall while pushing a stone up a mountain to punch through the sky. And the boiler suits still make me smile. Scream along to Slipknot.
