"Listen, we are the hardest ever," he said. "We blow all bands away. I don't give a fuck who your band is. I've probably played with your band, and you don't show me shit. So, it's like, is this band heavy? Oh, yeah, we're the heaviest. We're heavy thinkers, heavy hitters, heavy writers and heavy people, but it's emotionally heavy. There's a lot of emotion on this record, and we're all on the same page with our own emotions, so you're finally seeing the kings of all the courts bringing their kingdom's jewels in for one gigantic war."
He goes on and says this:
"No one has done what we have done, this is a war, man. The shit that we do, nine guys trying to fucking write together, and keep this insanity going? Does anybody take the time to realize that? For me, this is like going to Vietnam, serving your tour and then the government asking you to do another tour because you're a badass. We've got 10 purple hearts, and we're fucking killers. This isn't your rock and roll; this is our rock and roll."

So, why in the world would he say this? First off, he is delusional beyond belief. I could fucking name 5 bands that are heavier. I'm not though. Do I really need to? No, I should hope not. IMO these guys are not REAL metal. They are EMO-Hot Topic metal. And thats not metal at all. I haven't heard Slipknots new record, but i'm sure its as lame as their last one. I'll make sure we review it when it comes out to let you know how bad it is. I know this sounds like a rant to some of you, but to most all of you metalheads, i'm sure you feel the same way. But if you disagree, leave comments. I want to know how you all see this.
And BTW, here are 5 heavier bands:
And i'm sure I could go on for quite a while.
