Story and Photography By Timothy Schumann On October 29th, here in El Paso, Texas, SLIPKNOT and KORN kicked off their "Fall North American Tour", combined with SLIPKNOT’S "Prepare for Hell Tour". They have a six week run of shows (24 dates) that will end in Boston on December 7th…and make no mistake, this is a deadly combination of Metal music! JONATTHAN DAVIS and crew were in rare form--belting out hits such as “Twist”, “Freak on a Leash”, “Shoots and Ladders” and “Blind”. You could see the stage perfectly no matter where you were, and the sound was deafening--not to mention, it was great to see Head Welsh back in the lineup!! After a brief intermission, a full size curtain was put up and when it was raised, SLIPKNOT hit the stage! They took no prisoners, with songs like, “Sarcastrophe”, “The Devil in I”, “Vermilion”, “The Negative One” and “Psychosocial”. In my opinion, this was one of the best shows I've seen in a while, and I believe I speak for everyone who attended. If you’re a fan of either of these bands, this is a MUST show!! So, put you ear to the ground and listen…because SLIPKNOT is coming to your town--and Hell's coming with them!!!
