Iowa In Germany
On January 29th 2002, Slipknot played a sold out show at The Docks in Hamburg, Germany. The people who saw that show are now part of Slipknot history.
The show opened with the song "Iowa" which was played in its entirety for the second time EVER, the first time being when it was recorded for Slipknot's platinum selling 2nd album Iowa.
This will never happen again.
The set consisted of 'Iowa', 'People=Shit', 'Disasterpiece', 'Eeyore', 'Heretic Anthem', 'Wait & Bleed', 'Sic' and 'Surfacing'.
Slipknot is currently on an extensive European tour. The show in Hamburg, though not as lengthy as the usual set, will be one of the most memorable shows in Slipknot's history. It was Slipknot at their most decadent, spontaneous and 'sic' and gave the band the chance to go back to the so called 'bar days' where no one knew just what could happen on any Slipknot show on any night.
Slipknot will return to Hamburg and the band has promised to play a 'make up' show.

Resident Evil - we mentioned it before, but we'll say it once again with some more detail - Slipknot's remake of the track "My Plague", called the 'new abuse mix', will be featured on the upcoming 03/12 release of the Resident Evil soundtrack AND featured in the movie itself. For this movie, which hits theaters on March 15th, the 'new abuse mix' of "My Plague" will be the first song played during its closing credits. It's true. More to come on this soundtrack later...
New Video - New video? Apparently, yes. Word has it that from the live footage to be shot during the 02/16 show at London Arena, some of this live footage, spliced in with scenes from the Resident Evil movie, will be made into a video for "My Plague". It's true. And it's good too - have you seen some of the scenes from this movie with Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez? You will...

New Corey Interview Added
Shawn Thanks the Maggots
in response to shawns wife struggling with Crohne's disease:
"I want to take the time to say to everyone, on a personal level, that everything in my life happens for a reason. My wife wasnt in such a condition that she was going to die, but for our childrens sake, she and I couldnt put off [treating] her disease any longer, so we just did it. She has really come through well, shes blossomed. I want to extend my love and thank-yous to the people out there who may have spent just one moment hoping that Clowns wife was going to be all right. I want them to know that I felt all of it and it was a pretty cool feeling. I got a lot of help through the Maggots, and from other people in the industry, and other bands and artists. It was cool to feel that in my world."
