Congratulations are in order for the ’Knot, who’ve managed to secure yet another Number One album in the UK.

The End, So Far follows 2001’s Iowa and 2019’s We Are Not Your Kind in hitting the very top of the charts, with the Official Charts Company announcing that it’s the ‘most downloaded album of the past seven days’.

Slipknot’s seventh LP beat out a reissue of George Michael’s 1996 LP Older in second place, followed by The Snuts’ second album Burn The Empire.

In our exclusive cover story with Corey Taylor a couple of months back, the frontman praised his bandmates for their work on the album, revealing that they actually complimented each other once The End, So Far was finished – something they’ve never done before.

“I kind of get a little emotional about it, because it means a lot to me,” he shared. “We always hang out before we’re getting ready for a show, and all of the guys had different favourite things that I had done on the album – they were like, ‘I love this part, I love this line, I love this, I love how you fucking your scream on this…’ We’ve never given each other props to each other’s face. We’re such crotchety curmudgeons! And it’s really funny that after this many years we had never really told each other, ‘I think you’re the shit, and I love being in a band with you.’”
