Slipknot + Jinjer, Vended / 7.08.2022 / Gdańsk-Sopot

The masked extremists from Iowa will perform in our country on August 7, 2022, at the Gdansk-Sopot Ergo Arena. They will be accompanied by Ukrainian group Jinjer and young lineup Vended.


To say that the emergence of Slipknot at the end of the 1990s was a breath of fresh air for the metal scene is like saying with a tsunami that it is pleasantly buoyant. Slipknot were a hurricane hit.
A new quality and at the same time the culmination of the best of the decade’s extreme music: the deathmetal heaviness and heat of black metal under one roof with the intensity of hardcore and the down-to-earthness of rap? Before the release of “Slipknot,” we didn’t know it was possible. After “Iowa” and “Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)” we no longer knew how to live without it. Equally important was the demented image: nine individuals in overalls and grotesque masks. It’s unclear whether they escaped from a maximum security prison or from your nightmare….
It wasn’t without problems, lineup changes and a crisis that almost ended the band, but you know what doesn’t kill us… That’s why the album “We Are Not Your Kind,” released in 2019, is one of the best material of the band from Des Moines, and the band’s live form places them at the current peak of extreme music.
