New Slipknot Photo Book ‘Slipknot: Dysfunctional Family Portraits’ Due This Week


An advance look at a new photo book of Slipknot titled ‘Slipknot: Dysfunctional Family Portraits‘ has been shared online at this location. The band themselves approve of the the book, which features 150 color photographs captured over the past 15 years by Paul Harries. The official spiel for it reads:

Slipknot, the instantly-recognizable heavy metal band from Des Moines, Iowa, shot to fame after the release of their first album in 1999, grabbing the attention of millions of adoring fans, and some not-so-adoring conservative commentators. From the first, Paul Harries photographed them on stage, backstage and through artistic eyes, and Dysfunctional Family Portraits is a fascinatingly creative look at this distinctive band.

The name Dysfunctional Family Portraits perfectly sums up the band, a dysfunctional melee of chaos and aggressive music, while the humans behind the monstrous masks remained truly close, and their camaraderie comes across in these intimate photographic portraits. The energy and chaos of their live shows is particularly well-captured by Harries‘ brilliant shots, showing them in their natural habitat: that of loud, sweaty, energetic and adrenaline-fueled music.

Approx. 150 color photographs”

It will be released tomorrow, March 29th, You can find it over at Amazon.
