Slipknot – All Hope Is Gone 2LP (Limited Edition Orange Vinyl)
All Hope Is Gone is the fourth studio album by Slipknot, released on August 26, 2008 by Roadrunner Records. Preparation for the album began in 2007, while recording started in February 2008 in the band’s home state of Iowa. All Hope Is Gone is the band’s most eclectic-sounding album at the time of release, incorporating elements from their previous three. The album shows Slipknot completely abandoning the nu metal genre, moving to a groove metal style. Songs such as the opening track “Gematria (The Killing Name)” and the title track espouse the band’s more brutal, death metal-influenced edge, reminiscent of songs such as “(sic)” from their debut self-titled album; slow burning, “trippy” elements such as “Gehenna”, recalling “Skin Ticket” from their second album Iowa; and more tragic, sentimental tracks such as “Dead Memories” and “Snuff”.
