Day Of The Gu­sano

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff - Dom Law­son

There is lit­tle chance that any­one will ever truly cap­ture on film the in­sane ex­hil­a­ra­tion of a Slip­knot live show. But Day Of The Gu­sano comes pretty close.

Shot at the metal ti­tans’ tri­umphant Mex­ico City de­but in De­cem­ber 2015, this is an ex­plo­sive and ridicu­lously ex­cit­ing con­cert film that con­firms two ma­jor things: firstly, that Slip­knot’s new mem­bers have, if any­thing, added to the band’s in­te­gral fier­i­ness, and se­condly, that the Iowa crew are still bizarrely ex­treme for such a com­mer­cially suc­cess­ful band. From the open­ing riff-riot of Sar­cas­tro­phe to the clos­ing mini-apoca­lypse of Sur­fac­ing, it’s a flat-out and fu­ri­ous spec­ta­cle, shot and edited with laud­able in­tel­li­gence and as vi­brant son­i­cally as such en­deav­ours ever get.

Day Of The Gu­sano is a classy stop-gap to keep the diehards busy while they wait for what­ever 18-legged mad­ness comes next.

Eye­ball-fraz­zling live ac­tion.
