Slipknot: Maggots (DVD)

Once again I have the displeasure of watching one of these unauthorized documentaries from the folks at Locomotive Records. They are hard to sit through as no matter which artist they focus on, and they feature no original music from the artist on the documentary. Plus, the people interviewed are often so far removed from the band and what makes them unique that one wonders why there is any need to hear from them. I can admit to liking a moment or two which explained how there was nothing going on in Iowa compared to what Slipknot would unleash on the unsuspecting world as well as the few minutes of discussion about how the group ended up being signed and gaining interest from the record label. There are shots of the band mainly in photos that are dated and any real group footage is so old that it is trivial. This might not find any interest for a casual listener, but perhaps a diehard can see a little deeper into it. As a fan of most band documentaries I felt that the lot of them in this series are ponderous and far from any level of recommendation. Even if you are among the most hardcore fans of this band, let the buyer beware.
