One of the most popular bands in the nu-metal explosion of the late 1990s and early 2000s, Slipknot were formed in late 1995 in Des Moines, Iowa; after some early personnel shifts, the nine-piece lineup settled around.
Slipknot's blueprint for nu-metal success was set with their theatrical, attention-grabbing image - the band would always perform in identical industrial jumpsuits and homemade Halloween masks, and their mysterious anonymity by adopting the numbers zero through eight as stage aliases. Add to that a lyrical preoccupation with darkness and nihilism, and a name for their fans ("Maggots"). Emerging in 1995, the Grammy Award-winning issued their eponymous debut album in 1999 and went mainstream with subsequent gold and platinum efforts like Iowa (2001), All Hope Is Gone (2008), and We Are Not Your Kind (2019).
“With their latest studio album, Slipknot have released one of the strongest albums in their career,” - Consequence of Sound
“The 'Knot's sixth album is an astonishing record.” - UK’s NME
The widely anticipated sixth LP, WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND is already available for streaming on all platforms. The LP is highlighted by early album tracks “Birth Of The Cruel,” “Solway Firth,” and the LP’s lead single “Unsainted.” Each has come with an M. Shawn Crahan directed official music video, and each has trended worldwide on YouTube (all videos, not just music) - “Unsainted” at #1 worldwide for a full 24 hours. All told, the band has amassed over 52 million views in only two months. SLIPKNOT shook the world once again with the worldwide live debuts of “Unsainted” and their 2018 single “All Out Life” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! - both of which have become the show’s most viewed music performances of 2019 on YouTube. “Solway Firth” is also joined by a Crahan directed official music video, featuring exclusive footage from the new Amazon Original series, “The Boys,” alongside live performance footage from SLIPKNOT’s recent headline festival run in Europe.
“Iowa’s greatest musical export has only improved on its genre-busting sound.” – Billboard
“The sheer ambition of WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND is just as staggering as their seminal record Iowa –the dynamic might be even better,” – The Independent
LAMC Productions has been eagerly waiting for Slipknot's heavily anticipated return to Singapore since their last concert here on 16 August 2005 at Fort Canning Park. Relating to the same anticipation and longing of Slipknot’s fans, LAMC Productions’ co-founder Lauretta Alabons shared “We have been patiently waiting and hoping to bring Slipknot back to Singapore. The band has grown immensely into one of the biggest metal bands in the world; and we are excited to bring them on the release of their No.1 Album We Are Not Your Kind.”
Hailing from Orlando Florida, Trivium formed in 1999 and quickly built a buzz around Orlando's metal community with their blend of metalcore, thrash, and progressive metal. After getting signed to Roadrunner Records in 2004, the band has released eight studio albums and over twenty singles. Their latest album, The Sin and the Sentence, was released on October 20, 2017.
On their eighth full-length offering ‘The Sin and The Sentence [Roadrunner Records], Trivium chose the latter once again. In fact, the record represents an apotheosis of every element that at once defined the Florida group since its 1999 formation. Moments of malevolent melodicism give way to taut technical thrash, black metal expanse, punk spirit, andheavy heart tightly threaded together by the musical union of the quartet — Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent [drums]. Unsurprisingly, these eleven songs resulted from an unquenchable hunger for improvement. “It was a do-or-die moment,” exclaims Heafy. “There were no two ways about it. We’ve always had this will to be better. I started taking inventory of everything we’ve done right or wrong, and it made me apply that thinking to the new music. What ended up coming about was, in my opinion, a combination of the best things we’ve ever done. We all agreed, ‘We have to make the best record of our career right now.’
The band has sold over one million albums worldwide and staged sold-out shows across the globe. Their 2015 album Silence in the Snow with 17,000 copies upon debut, bowed Top 20 on the Billboard Top 200 and claimed the #3 spot on the Top Rock Albums chart. ‘Until the World Goes Cold’ arrived as their biggest single to date, achieving the band’s first Top 10 at Active Rock and generating a staggering 17.1 million Spotify streams and 14.9 million YouTube/VEVO views and counting. This year, Trivium got a nomination at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards for Best Metal Performance.
Following the 2003 independent breakout of Ember to Inferno, Trivium arrived as metal’s hungriest contender on 2005’s Ascendancy. Heralded as “Album of the Year'' by Kerrang!, it stands out as a 21st century genre landmark. As they went on to cumulatively sell over 2 million units, they scorched stages with idols such as Metallica, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and more in addition to regularly making pivotal appearances at Download Festival, Bloodstock, KNOTFEST, and beyond. In Waves and Vengeance Falls both soared to the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 as the band staunchly secured its place in the modern metal pantheon.
