Status: Partially Lost

Slipknot is an American heavy metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. Formed in 1995, Anders Colsefni originally acted as lead vocalist before being replaced by Corey Taylor in 1997. However, there are lost demos that date back to 1992, featuring some of the original band members. During mid-1997-1998, Anders and Corey worked together, with Corey covering some of the demos before Anders left. So far, only some of the songs from the demos have appeared up online. It is important to remember nearly all lost tracks exist in private collections and are preserved digitally.
