Serenade Me, Sinister




Using the Horror/Macabre gallery to bring you music and mayhem, this week I will lull you to sleep (or to kill) with Slipknot. Many thanks to dreamsinstatic for their glorious suggestion!

Slipknot is an American nu metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. Formed in 1995, the group was founded by percussionist Shawn Crahan and bassist Paul Gray. After several lineup changes in their early days, the band consisted of nine members for the greater part of their tenure: Sid Wilson, Paul Gray, Joey Jordison, Chris Fehn, Jim Root, Craig Jones, Shawn Crahan, Mick Thomson, and Corey Taylor.

Slipknot is well known for its attention-grabbing image, aggressive music style, and energetic and chaotic live shows. The band had somewhat of a meteoric rise to success following the release of their self-titled debut album in 1999.

The band is known for its attention-grabbing image; the members wear matching uniforms, have unique masks respectively and have aliases which are simply numbers.[8] The original idea of wearing masks while performing is often attributed to a clown mask that percussionist Crahan would bring to rehearsals when the band first started.[1] The concept developed, and by late 1997, the band decided that every member of the band would wear unique masks and matching jumpsuits.

Slipknot draw influence from an array of styles and bands, most notably including hard rock and heavy metal bands such as Kiss, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Judas Priest, Metallica, White Zombie, Led Zeppelin and Beastie Boys. Slipknot are seen as pioneers of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal and have been compared to groups such as Pantera, Machine Head, Biohazard, Life of Agony, and Prong




Duality - Slipknot:



I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it's made of all the things I have to take
Jesus it never ends, it works it's way inside
If the pain goes on

dirty by Countess-Grotesque I don't want those eyes by ImperfectFleur Sufferer by Licherus

I have screamed until my veins collapsed
I've waited as my times elapsed
Now all I do is live with so much fate



I wished for this, I bitched at that
I've left behind this little fact
You cannot kill what you did not create

Come Away With Me by RobotGrin

I've gotta say what I've gotta say
And then I swear I'll go away
But I can't promise you'll enjoy the noise

blood execute by Psikophat


I guess I'll save the best for last
My future seems like one big past
You're left with me 'cause you left me no choice

I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache
If the pain goes on, I'm not gonna make it

too late by 14th-division Experiment gone wrong2 by Elisanth Where It Counts 6 by GrotesqueDarling13

Put me back together or separate the skin from bone
Leave me all the pieces
Then you can leave me alone

+My Sewed Fingers VIII+ by anonymousx

Tell me the reality is better than the dream
But I've found out the hard way
Nothing is what it seems

I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it's made of all the things I have to take
Jesus it never ends, it works it's way inside
If the pain goes on, I'm not gonna make it

All I've got, all I've got is insane

HorrorDoll by Ophelia-Amok

I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it's made of all the things I have to take
Jesus it never ends, it works it's way inside
If the pain goes on, I'm not gonna make it

I tried, but the lyrics are really repeat-y, so it was actually quite the challenge to find some that didn't look the same as the others. I had fun doing this one. Thank you for the suggestion =)

To quote the great philosopher "Mouse" from "The Matrix:" To deny our impulses is to deny the very thing that makes us human. ;)

School teacher voice just made me think of pleated skirts, knee highs and half-buttoned white shirts.... now that is going to drive me crazy.
