Slipknot 'Live' in Singapore at Fort Canning Park



16 Aug 2005

BARON'S STRONG BREW is proud to present SLIPKNOT "The Subliminal Verses Tour" Live in Singapore on August 16th at the Fort Canning Park.
For one exclusive performance in Asia, Slipknot is going to rock Singapore like it has never been rocked before. Drummer Joey Jordison said, "We've always wanted to perform in Singapore for a long time. We can't wait to get on stage and show Singapore what Slipknot is all about! This will be a show to remember."
Without limits, pushing boundaries and non-conformity are some terms used aptly to describe Slipknot. Similarly, Baron's Strong Brew has always exuded a strong presence and relentless attitude that gives the brew the potent personality that many can identify with today.
"The image that Baron's Strong Brew personifies is one that is strong, cutting-edge and efficacious. This resonates very strongly with the avid fans of Baron's who believe in empowerment and indulgence," said Sebastian Loh, Brand Manager of Baron's Strong Brew. Commenting on how Baron's can push the effervescence of this concert to an even higher level, Sebastian Loh added, "Slipknot is one of the most compelling heavy-metal groups to date and this high-energy performance echoes the robust and indulgent attitude that Baron's Strong Brew embodies."
Promoter Laurrieta Alaabons of LAMC Production said, "Slipknot is the biggest metal act to play Singapore since Metallica. It's a real milestone to bring them here. Anyone who loves the energy of a live rock show should not miss this."
Fan and critics unanimously agree that Slipknot is the most exciting rock band in the World today! An explosive performance by SLIPKNOT coupled with an equally strong brew - Baron's, the show promises nothing less than awesome strength which will most definitely bring the house down!

"It takes about three days to recover from a Slipknot Show. If it's not the deafening volume or the incredible energy and musical violence that gets you it's the realization that you've just had the most powerful, heavy and ass-kicking, take-no-prisoners musical experience of your life and the only way you'll come close to it again is at another Slipknot show." - Benji Bartlett of GUITARIST MAGAZINE
"The nine piece human threshing machine played new songs and older songs, with all of them generating a massive response?Everyone in the band is a great entertainer as well as a solid musician" - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
"Slipknot are simply a band that need to be seen to be believed!" - KERRANG MAGAZINE
"Throughout the nihilistic 100-minute, 15 song set, the groups status as definers of the new millennium heavy metal aesthetic was undeniable!" - CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER NEWSPAPER
"There's clearly substance behind the (band's) style, Slipknot proved its shows are a visual and musical experience." - LOWELL SUN (MA)
"The nine-man band harvested the best songs from their first two discs along with a few new tunes" Success hasn't spoiled Slipknot nor the followers they affectionately call "maggots." "this was a no gimmick concert that stayed focused on the music." - NEW YORK POST
"What makes this music so attractive for an increasingly diverse fandom -- from college students to white collar professionals such as brokers and lawyers -- is its "difference" from the commercialized mainstream. Music that breaks nearly every conceivable rule for morality is embraced by fans because it breaks through the "noise" of commercial culture. It's a refreshing time-out from the pressures of commercial conformity, a place where difference, self-expression and equality are celebrated, if not demanded. It is a temporary escape from a world in which, it seems, everything is a commodity." - DR. KAREN HALNON, PROFESSOR Penn State University Author of "Alienation Incorporated"

Born of the near-desolation of Iowa, Slipknot bursts forth from the American heartland in 1999 with some of the most awe-inspiring, cathartic rock the world has ever heard. Vetting their collective psyche not only through their songs, but also through their masks, their uniforms, their live shows, and even their fans and the culture they inhabit. Slipknot holds nothing back! The depth of their expression is matched by that of their musical prowess- this tornado is laser-guided, and fellow musicians, critics and the fans know that Slipknot is deadly serious about its art. Thus, after two platinum albums, two platinum home videos, and cover stories in Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, Revolver to name a few, we come to Slipknot's ultimate expression: VOL. 3: (THE SUBLIMINAL VERSES).
