SLIPKNOT's self-released demo album from 1996, entitled "Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat", was sold on eBay yesterday (March 25) for the price of $627.37.As most SLIPKNOT fans are aware, "Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat" is the rarest and most sought-after SLIPKNOT item of all time and is every collector's dream to have. Only 1,000 copies of the CD were pressed and released in 1996 before the band landed a record deal. Check out the eBay auction page at this location. SLIPKNOT capped off an amazing two years on February 8 by winning their first Grammy Award, in the category of "Best Metal Performance", for "Before I Forget" from 2004's "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)". SLIPKNOT has been nominated in the "Best Metal Performance" category for six consecutive years, but never took home the Grammy until now. The band went on hiatus at the end of 2005 after nearly 18 months on the road in support of "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)". SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root are now recording the second album from their other band, STONE SOUR, while percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan will make a new album with his side project, TO MY SURPRISE. Drummer Joey Jordison will tour this spring and summer with MINISTRY. (Thanks: Metabolic666)
