Best Slipknot Albums

The Top Ten

1 Slipknot

This album, along with Iowa, are really their best albums, it shows them and the state of mind they were in from the beginning and its essentially the very essence of the band, this album is so angry, so creepy, heavy, everything you'd want in a metal album full packed with the best lyrics, musicianship, and emotion.

The Subliminal Verses has the best Slipknot's songs (DUALITY and BEFORE I FORGET) and more masterpieces that still are on the top of heavy metal, such as The Nameless, The Blister Exists...

It's difficult to choose. "The Subliminal Verses" has the two best Slipknot's songs to me (DUALITY and BEFORE I FORGET), but this one... Just can't stop listening to it. Every song is mind blowing, you can feel the adrenaline, headbanging til the end. And of course, has also BRILLIANT masterpieces almost to the level as the two mentioned (EYELESS, WAIT AND BLEED, SPIT IT OUT, (SIC), PURITY), definitely it's the one which has more awesome songs, so it's the best album.

This thing is epic! (Sic), Eyeless, Wait and Bleed, Surfacing, Spit it out, and Prosthetics and the bomb

Wait and Bleed, sic, Spit It Out, Eyeless, etc. This was Slipknot in its glory days and shaped what they have become. - TwJaGd

Love the intensity, anger and overall emotion. The album is like a long trip into hell and back. The whole album consists of heavy drumming, excellent sampling, great guitar riffs and overwhelmingly powerful vocals on the part of corey taylor

Heaviest of all slipknot albums and will always be.

Vol 3 was a close second but Iowa takes the cake. Something for me which is hard for me to quantify, it's just so intense and brings something up inside me which few other albums can do but that, and the nostalgia factor aside. The riffs, the anger, the production, the lyrics and just the general quality of musical arrangements and songwriting it top notch and like I said Vol 3 was close but not quite at the same level for me.

For all you people out there who think slipknot is watered down and radio friendly well LISTEN to THIS!

3 Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses

One of Slipknot's moodiest, most adventurous, and surprisingly artistic efforts. Also, my favorite. Iowa is a close second. The incorporation of acoustic and melodic elements, with the maintenance of insanely unhinged moments like The Blister Exists and the crescendo of Vermilion, was a brilliant stroke without veering into radio-friendly, overly processed and easily-digestible territory (All Hope is Gone). Danger - Keep Away is one of my favorite tracks of all time.

This is album is a completely different level of absolute perfection. Every song stands out as amazing, and they all mix together aggression and melody in an amazing way. It has songs like "The Blister Exists," "Before I Forget," "Circle," and the two-part "Vermillion." Lastly, instead of sounding over-produced and unoriginal, the album has a unique raw sound that ends up defining it. Best Slipknot album and one of the best of all time. - DesL42

The only Slipknot album where I LOVE every single song. Self-titled, I'm on the edge about Prosthetics. Iowa, not really into the title track. All Hope Is Gone, not a big fan of This Cold Black and Herein Lies Continue. Even though my favourite Slipknot song is from All Hope Is Gone (Sulfur), Vol.3: The Subliminal Verses is my favourite Slipknot album... Scratch that, it is my favourite metal album of all time

This should be at least top 3

4 All Hope Is Gone

What an album man!, this is so kickass, all Slipknot albums are awesome, but this, with songs like Psychosocial, Sulfur, Gematria, Vendetta, Dead Memories, and my favorite, ALL HOPE IS GONE!, SO HEAVY!

This should always be considered their best album. Vol. 3 The Subliminal Verses was good too but nothing compared to this. It's the album that's most metal and has the sickest guitar solos. It has great songs like Psychosocial, Dead Memories, All Hope is Gone, Snuff, The Butcher's Hook, Vendetta, and my personal favorite Slipknot song ever: SULFUR!

This is the obvious choice. I voted their self-titled due to its originality and uniqueness, but this was definitely their best album in terms of quality, hits, and success. - TwJaGd

Should be number three my first album by them I bought in 2008 and my first song was sulfur I think this is better then vol 3 but not as good as others but in my opinion it's number but everyone else like the first ones best

5 .5: The Gray Chapter

Their most focused, groovy and atmospheric album to date, "The Gray Chapter" is the first Slipknot album that impressed me with every track on repeated listens. All of the songs here compliment each other very well and the flow between each is almost seamless. The whole album is soaked in a dense fog of emotion and energy. Not a single song here feels out of place and the final track is a perfect way the close the album. Also, the two bonus tracks that come with the deluxe edition are incredible. A score of 9.5/10 for me. The only issue I had was with some tracks overstaying their welcome toward the last chorus. That's it guys, the Knot's best album to date is worth voting for and making the #1 spot!

Amazing effort! Pulling off an album without Joey AND Paul (RIP) may seem impossible, but Slipknot not only release an album, but a AMAZING one! I'd suggest songs but there are far too many to pick from! My favourite, however, is probably Custer. Yep, a triumphant return for the 9! Looking forward to the tour!

What?!? This should at least be higher than all hope is gone!.5: The Gray Chapter, Self Titled, and Iowa are the best slipknot albums released! I don't get how Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses AND All Hope Is Gone are higher than this, just because it's newer doesn't mean it's not better than the older albums!

Well this album is actually their most atmospheric album and it shows that they don't just want to scream to be wild! they try to be wild in the screamings and rhythms and even every non screaming vocals that they sing like the one that kills the least,devil in I,killpop,custer and XIX
They worth listening for life time.

6 Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat.

The album that started it all. Raw yet well produced with great, sometimes whacky/experimental songs, it's a great album. Definitely recommend songs such as Slipknot, Gently, and Only one.

Heaviest in their discography a full out Industrial-Death metal onslaught

Their first album ever.

They captured a certain vibe on MFKR they haven't been able to replicate since. Really cool, experimental album that was fairly unique-ish.

7 Antennas to Hell

Best slipknot album purely for the track selection. It's a best of: album. So its got to be the best. Maggots forever, long live the knot and R.I. P Paul Gray

Start to finish this is an amazing best of album this really is the best of slipknot especially if you have the 3 disc edition! So Amazing!

I don't think anyone that comment on this realizes it's a best of album

It's the Greatest Hits albums, containing the greatest hits. Need I explain more?
