FeasterLouder.com.au recently posted a review and photos from Slipknot‘s recent Sidewave show in Sydney, Australia. Below you can read an excerpt from the review.
EightNine piece heavy metal ensemble, Slipknot, backed up their ferocious Soundwave performance with a sideshow at a very undersold and curtained off Sydney Entertainment Centre. The less than overwhelming attendance did nothing to deter the performances of either band playing that night, or the pulse of the maggots who crawled out of their festering carcasses to rock out with them.
Below you can check out video footage from Slipknot‘s Sydney Sidewave show which took place at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on February 27. The 9 performed the following songs: (sic), Eyeless, Wait and Bleed, The Blister Exists, Sulfur, Before I Forget, Pulse of the Maggots, Frail Limb Nursery, Dead Memories, Disasterpiece, Vermilion, Everything Ends, Psychosocial, The Heretic Anthem, Duality, Spit It Out, Only One, People = Shit, Surfacing.

TheAge.com.au recently conducted an interview with Clown (#6 of Slipknot). Below you can read an excerpt from the chat.
Clown: “We give you everything. We’re the greatest band in the world as far as I’m concerned.
“I always laugh when bands say, ‘You know, without the masks they’d be nothing.’ OK, try playing one of our songs, try playing my drummer’s parts, try playing my guitar player’s parts. Now put on a mask and all this other shit and run around like you’re in a rugby game – then I might start listening.”
