the cover of innumerable national and international publications, from Rolling
Stone, SPIN, and Alternative Press to Guitar World, Revolver, and Billboard.
What’s more, Slipknot has received myriad honors, awards, and nominations,
including a Grammy Award for “Best Metal Performance” as well as six further

.5: The Gray Chapter is also available in a wide range of
distinctive versions, including standard and special
edition CDs (2 bonus tracks and expanded packaging) as well as
limited edition, colored vinyl double LP set.
