All Hope Is Gone is the fourth studio album by American metal band Slipknot. It was released on August 20, 2008,[1] by Roadrunner Records. A special edition of the album will contain three exclusive bonus tracks, and will be packaged in a six-fold digipak with a 40-page deluxe booklet[1] and bonus DVD containing a documentary of the album's conception.[2]

Noted to have begun preparation in 2007, recording was due to begin in January 2008, but was pushed back to February. It will be the band's first studio release since 2004's Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), making All Hope Is Gone their fourth studio album as well as the first musical output from the band since Corey Taylor and Jim Root's mainstream success with Stone Sour, Joey Jordison's stints with Korn, Ministry and 3 Inches of Blood, Shawn Crahan's side project Dirty Little Rabbits and Sid Wilson's solo project. All Hope Is Gone is also the band's first studio album on a major label to be recorded in their home state of Iowa.[3]

Recording and production

Preparation for All Hope Is Gone reportedly began in 2007, drummer Joey Jordison explains; "I've told them to demo whatever they can so we've got as much material to chose from as possible."[4] In February 2008,[5] Slipknot entered the Sound Farm Studio in Jamaica, Iowa with producer Dave Fortman.[6] Unlike any of their previous albums, All Hope Is Gone was written and recorded in the band's home state of Iowa. Bassist Paul Gray explained that they decided to do this because in Los Angeles — where all their previous albums were produced — there are too many distractions.[7] Band members also revealed that it was good for their mindset being so close to home, in an interview with Kerrang!, vocalist Corey Taylor revealed that he would make a point of driving home every night to see his son.[8] Of the album's production Jordison said, "it's finally the record that I've wanted Slipknot to sound like." Complimenting Fortman's ear for tone, he explains that he believes that this is the band's best album sonically.[9] The album was mixed by Colin Richardson in the United Kingdom.[10]

Unlike previous releases, all nine band members were involved in the writing process of the album, reportedly writing over 30 songs. Jordison reveals, "I have to say that the band is at its peak; everyone — I mean everyone — is now completely involved in the writing process, and it's a beautiful thing."[6] When questioned about the process, vocalist Taylor explained that the cycle was not met without conflict. He went on to add that the creation of every Slipknot album has had conflict and that the band has come to embrace it, as they realize it is what brings out their creativity.[11] Also for the first time, some members of the group separated themselves from the band to write some tracks. Vocalist Taylor and guitarist Jim Root paired up with turntablist Sid Wilson (performing on keyboards) and percussionist Shawn Crahan (who took up full drumming duties) to work on what was described as "oblique, arty pieces".[6] One experiment saw Taylor tracking in an old well, he enthused, "there was this natural reverb to it that was just intense."[6] Crahan would later reveal that none of these tracks made it on to the album. However, one of which, "Til We Die" does appear as a bonus track on the special edition.[12] During an interview with LiveDaily, guitarist Root expressed some discontent over the process of the record, stating that "it felt a little bit rushed. And it felt like we were trying to do things just to appease a schedule, which I didn't really like." On the subject of the record's producer, Root went on to say, "Dave Fortman really helped me appreciate Rick Rubin as a producer," and that, "[Fortman] wasn't able to get nine people together on the same page and, to me, that's the most important thing in making a Slipknot record."[13]

Musical and lyrical themes

For All Hope Is Gone, the band displayed interest in making it their heaviest album to date.[14] The band made an expansion on the thrash metal riffing that was displayed on Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), as well as adding additional guitar solos.[14] However, they also wanted to make it their most experimental record, and have included more acoustic guitars and melodic vocals.[15][16] During an interview in the February 2008 edition of Revolver, percussionist Crahan expressed a willingness for him and fellow percussionist Chris Fehn to experiment with hi-hats and cymbals which has been absent in the additional percussion in any previous work.[17] In an interview on May 13, singer Corey Taylor described All Hope Is Gone as a "very dark" combination of the band's two most recent studio albums, Iowa and Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses).[18]
“ It's going to rip your face off...I don't think the world will be ready for this album. ”

— Corey Taylor

Taylor, whose lyrics have traditionally been about his life, stated this album's lyrics will be less about his life and more, "bitching about what's wrong in life".[18] Crahan said that the album is different than their first three because it was made "by a bunch of crazy guys in their 30s. That doesn't mean we're slowing down or not as intense — our brains are different, so we're bringing different emotions, different feelings and different anxieties to the table now. This record is another diagnosis of our insanity."[19] Taylor would later say of the album, "I think it's the best thing I've ever made."[20] During an interview in June 2008 Taylor explained that the album title was aimed at the fans expectations of the band, stating; "All hope of trying to figure us out is completely obliterated."[11] When questioned about the musical outlook of the album Taylor explained that the band has retained some of the melodic elements that they experimented with on Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), but implies that All Hope Is Gone is much darker and edgier.[11]


It rumored that, due to the members being unmasked in their side projects, Slipknot was going to be recording and touring this album unmasked. However, these rumors have been dismissed by many band members. Percussionist Shawn Crahan addressed this issue during an interview on The Sauce when discussing the release of their 2006 DVD release Voliminal: Inside the Nine.[21] Bassist Paul Gray confirmed during an interview that the band will be returning with a new image; regarding the masks, he stated, "It'll still be Slipknot, but we're gonna upgrade, step things up a little."[22] Beginning on April 1, 2008, Slipknot's official website began to display splash teasers to promote All Hope Is Gone.[23] 10 teaser trailers were released. The first nine displayed the band in their new large masks, however the latest seemingly shows dark figures with what seems like ordinary size heads.[24] Slipknot premiered their new masks on July 1, 2008 through AOL Music's; 8 million people logged onto the site to view the masks on the first day.[25] In July 2008, Slipknot became the third band to have each member pictured on a special edition cover of Kerrang!.[26]

On June 15 a 30-second sample and cover art from the album's title track, "All Hope Is Gone," was available on[27] The title track began airplay on June 15 and on June 20, for a single day, Roadrunner Records posted a downloadable version of the title track, in its entirety, for free download and was released as a digital single soon after. The second single from the album, "Psychosocial" began airplay on June 26, and was released as a digital single on July 7.[28]

The album cover art and track listing was released on July 8,[29] the day before the band started their first tour since 2005 on the Mayhem festival across the United States. The Mayhem festival is scheduled to last until August 16. Slipknot will also be making appearances at Reading and Leeds Festivals in England, the Two Days a Week Festival in Austria and the Area4 Festival in Germany.[30] Overall, the tour for the album is expected to surpass that of Vol. 3's, which featured 233 concerts spanning 28 months throughout 34 countries.[31]

Kerrang! has announced six special listening events spanning the United Kingdom which were hosted from August 17 through August 19. These events included a preview of the documentary supplied with special editions of the album, Nine: The Making of All Hope Is Gone, as well as free merchandise.[32]


Anticipation for the band's fourth studio album began upon the release of Slipknot's previous album, Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), when Allmusic stated, "there's a sense that whatever Slipknot do next might be their ultimate broadcast to the faithful."[33] In a preview for Rolling Stone, Chris Steffen wrote that the "the band’s multiple percussionists generate a din that’s more suffocating than ever" on the track "Gematria." He went on to call "Snuff" the "most melodic" song, comparing it to Vol. 3's "Circle." The album's second single, "Psychosocial," "is capped off with a time-signature shattering guitar/drum breakdown that will leave the best air-instrumentalists stumped."[34] Total Guitar writer Nick Cracknell called the album "Slipknot's heaviest and most aggressive work to date." He compared "Dead Memories" to the works of Alice in Chains, while citing "Gehenna" as the band's most experimental work in their history. He went on to state "Wherein Lies Continue" contains a "huge chugging verse riff" which evolves into an "incredible soaring chorus."[35] Dan Martin of The Guardian compared "Dead Memories" to "Enter Sandman," while calling "Gematria (The Killing Name)" "astonishingly dense thrash."[36] Reviewing for The Quietus, John Doran praised "Butcher's Hook," while citing "This Cold Black" as the album's heaviest piece.
