Jim Root shared a brotherly bond with his longtime bandmate and friend - the late Paul Gray, so the writing and recording of Slipknot’s fifth full-length studio album (from inside Jim’s garage, to the recording studio with producer Greg Fidelman) was going to be an incredibly emotional journey. When Jim and Clown showed up at the studio (Sunset Sound) to record the album and saw they would be housed in Studio #2 (Paul’s number); they knew Paul was already here before they were. Jim brought along the FRET12 crew to document this album’s fascinating creation in its entirety, from how the songs were written, to the pre-production and recording, to taking the music to the stage. If you have ever wanted to see an album’s true story as it unfolds, this will be an eye-opener. A must watch for guitarists as well as more casual fans, we are shining the spotlight on all aspects of this critically acclaimed Slipknot album.
