  • Mood: Gloomy
  • Listening to: Wayne Static (1998-2011)
BLINDSIDED AGAIN! Just talking about Paul Gray and now Wayne Static is taken from us. Personally Wayne meant a bit more to me then Paul, since he was the frontman, face, voice, and only consistent member of a very unique group I have followed from Wisconsin Death Trip to Pighammer. Sources are saying overdose, and I find that all too believable and disappointing. I cannot judge him on his choice to relapse, and I don't know the reasons for it, I'm just sad he let the drugs back in, especially after making a big deal about kicking the habits in his solo album. I will miss him and I am sad I can no longer look forward to anything new in the future. I thought his solo album in 2011 was actually his best effort since Shadowzone almost 10 years before. R.I.P.

Mick Tape Mask by PyroDark
Mick Tape Mask
#7 Mick IOWA-style mask referenced from this picture. Not bad since it's made only of construction paper covered in duct tape.
The Observer by PyroDark
The Observer
Made this in 2003 after I saw it in a dream. It was me but I was viewing it third-person. The Observer looks fearsome, all pitch-black except for blue light emanating from it's big round eyes. It does'nt prey on anything, and never attacks, only observes from the shadows.

  • Listening to: .5: The Grey Chapter (early edition)
I've followed SlipKnoT since 1999, I loved the Debut. However come 2001, I was not one of the people worshiping "IOWA". I found it overly chaotic and just generic. I didn't abandon them for it but hoped for different material soon. Usually that doesn't pan out, but in this case I was overjoyed when VOL.3 came with a little more range of feeling to it besides an outright mess of rage. Some years later A.H.I.G. continued this awesome new sound and it was all good (besides the fact that All Hope Is Gone). Then came the blindsiding loss of Paul Gray. Things went black for many years since then and Paul has recieved millions of RIPs over those years, the best of which will be The Gray Chapter.
.5 includes several obvious mentions of Gray and dealing with his loss. Also a few possible passive aggressive prods at Joey for making things difficult for the remaining members to regroup. Joey was my favorite so I'm sad it went down like that, but so far I have loved Scar the Martyr and think it actually would pair very well with the new stuff SlipKnoT has come up with, if only their split hadn't been so negative. Tho no real details are officially revealed yet beside Joey confirming he was fired out of the blue.
As much as I miss seeing Joey's mask behind the drumset, I must say this new guy is filling his shoes quite well.
Some have said .5 is just a harsher Stone Sour album, and indeed corey has allowed some of his Stone Sour emotion bleed through into SlipKnoT now. Some are hating that he shows emotions besides hatred and contempt, calling him soft. SlipKnoT still have plenty of rage to offer, but I love to hear there's more to them then teenage angst after all these years. IOWA was 12 YEARS AGO, I was 18, now I'm 30. I still have anger and a lot of people.. still "=Shit", but it's not the same as in High School. The band, as well as many of the loyal maggots, have accumulated families since 1999 and life has changed. In Flames is the same story, THEY really did go softer with Siren Charms. I'm no different here, starting toward a future with no time to dwell on my old demons. See the Devil in I, I'm not your devil anymore!

I will be a Maggot 4 Life (and a Jesterhead 4 Life) Although I wouldn't be surprised if 2014 is a finale for both of these groups. James Root said recently he likes to "play for every album as if it is our last" Maybe it is time for them to end, and it will be on a high note, as I feel .5 is their best effort yet. Though it would be a shame to not get a 6 - 6 - 6th album from them someday.
