There is a lot of fuel left in the Slipknot tank. They are heavyweights in the metal game. The sound, set list, stage production, and performance they gave on closing night was in-fucking-credible.

Comments by: Brooke Taylor on Nov 26, 2014
It was muddy as hell at that first day of Riot Fest '14. Walking between stages was like walking on black ice, but way messier if you actually fell. I made it to the Rock Stage safely and mostly clean (RIP shoes) in time to catch Glassjaw's set. Firs…
