Meatloaf Calls Slipknot 'Metal Beethoven'


Meat Loaf, who recently sat down with Metal Hammer magazine, had high praise for Slipknot, whom he compared favorably to 18th century composer Ludwig von Beethoven.

"Slipknot has amazing arrangements, and musically, they're like a metal Beethoven," he commented.

Shawn Crahan of Slipknot, while speaking with The Age earlier in the week, was also generous while praising the group:

"We give you everything. We're the greatest band in the world as far as I'm concerned. I always laugh when bands say, 'You know, without the masks they'd be nothing.' OK, try playing one of our songs, try playing my drummer's parts, try playing my guitar player's parts."

Meat Loaf's twelfth studio effort, Hell in a Handbasket, was released last fall. Slipknot's last studio release was 2008's All Hope Is Gone.
