Is it possible to dress up like a Halloween creep and still rail against social injustice? Slipknot pull it off on their new album All Hope Is Gone, which is a metal assault-and-battery on the hypocrisies of the modern world. ”The state of the nation…a broken promise is as good as a lie,” Corey Taylor barks in his best Cookie Monster voice on the title track, and asks, ”What if God doesn’t care?” on the anti-organized-religion rant ”Gematria,” as drummer Joey Jordison pounds double-bass patterns to wake the undead. This is dark stuff, but there’s excellent musicianship to be found on these heavy meltdowns. B+
