This CD was the first release by Des Moines, Iowa’s very own native 
shock troops, Slipknot. Released on Halloween of 1996, -ismist picked up distribution in June of 1997. Anything and everything can be expected on this disc, from the roots of industrial metal and Chicago influenced Midwestern noise, with hints of jazz, disco and rap thrown in for good measure. This is not the regurgitated tripe you hear day in and day out on the radio. Now, sadly out of print, follow the bands exploits on Roadrunner Records.

The inside notes says: “Guitar leads on tracks 1, 6, & 10, as well as other rhythm guitar tracks preformed by Donnie Steele.” How is this mysterious track 10 explained?
“There was another song that we cut from the line-up called “Part Of Me”, and I think that thank-you panel had been made up before we cut it”. -Anders Colsefni
