The fourth full-length studio album by legendary American Nu Metal band.
The band’s only album produced by Rick Rubin, and also the only one not to feature harsh profanity.
Following the band’s tour to promote its second album in 2002, speculation regarding the future began. Some band members had already been involved in side projects including Murderdolls, To My Surprise, and the reformation of Stone Sour. However, in 2003, Slipknot moved into The Mansion to work on the album.
Initially, the band was unproductive; lead vocalist Corey Taylor was drinking heavily. Nevertheless, they wrote more than enough material for a new album - the band’s first to incorporate more traditional, melodic song structures, guitar solos and acoustic guitars.
"Vol. 3" shares its lyrical themes of anger, disaffection, and psychosis with most of Slipknot's Nu-Metal peers, what makes it tick is the dedication to making it a Slipknot album, and not just another flashy Alt-Metal billboard. The seething anger and preoccupation with pain is valid because it's componential to the band's uniquely branded havoc.
Rubin is integral to the album's power, his cataclysmic vocal filters and arrays of unidentifiable squiggle and squelch unite "Vol. 3"'s various portions in wildly different ways. It's a satisfying, carefully crafted representation of their career to date.
The album peaked within the top ten in album sales across eleven countries, and went Platinum in the United States. The band also received the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance for the song "Before I Forget". At the end of 2009, "Before I Forget" was listed as AOL’s "Top Metal Song of the Decade". Roadrunner Records have listed the music video for "Duality" as the best video in Roadrunner history.
