IOWA

(2001)

■ Slip­knotõs sec­ond stu­dio al­bum is the sound of chaos. Recorded and pro­duced at Dave Grohl-en­dorsed rus­tic record­ing refuge Sound City, from start to fi nish, Iowa is a record in­fused with pain. At the time of record­ing, many of the band were rid­dled with drug ad­dic­tions. Corey Tay­lor Ð him­self bat­tling al­co­holism Ð is said to have recorded the ti­tle-track com­pletely naked, vom­it­ing and cut­ting him­self with bro­ken glass. Not only that, but pro­ducer Ross Robin­son came off his dirt bike and frac­tured his back dur­ing record­ing. He re­turned to the fray after a mere day in hos­pi­tal, Òputting all his pain into the al­bumó.
