|Additional info||Scarce 2001 US Roadrunner Records 14-track 2LP set catching grinding Des Moines, IA, relentless and tumbling technically advanced noise-metal combos band's at their most extreme - considered their heaviest and darkest album - more focused on death and trash-metal than hip hop - featuring the Grammy-nominated songs "Left Behind" and the remix of "My Plague" - as well as the "The Heretic Anthem" single. |
Victoria Segal noted in her August 22, 2001 NME review that 'Iowa' was "Exhilarating, brutal and good." and David Fricke wrote - for Rolling Stones Magazine - that "nearly everything else in modern doom rock sounds banal." in his September 17, 2001 review.
Vinyls have black and silver printed 'Slipknot' logo-motif labels, packed in printed and illustrated lyric inner sleeves - metallic picture cover.
Condition: 2xVG+ (Vinyls & labels)/2xVG++ (Inner Sleeves)/VG+ (Cover):
Vinyls are bright and shiny - has a couple of light lines combined with faint sleeve wear - perfect labels.
Inner sleeves have hardly any signs of handling - cover an upper front opening dent... a couple of marginal pressure marks and a little creasing from edges... very nice seams and corners - at least VG+.
