Kris Barras Names Best Slipknot Songs To Add To Your Metal Gym Playlist

In a recent interview with Classic Rock, Kris Barras picked his top Slipknot songs for a metal gym playlist.

Barras chose Slipknot’s ‘Wait and Bleed’ as his first song from the band and said:

“This track was my first introduction to the band when they started blowing up over here. I was in my early teens and really starting to get into heavier music, and when I heard this, I just had my mind blown. Lots of Slipknot tracks make it on to my gym playlist now, all the songs you’d expect – ‘Eyeless,’ ‘Duality’ etc – but for me, ‘Wait And Bleed’ will always hold a place in my heart as one of the first tracks that really got me into metal.”

The rocker also included the track ‘Unbreakable’ from his Kris Barras Band in his list. He explained why he chose it:

“Now, I’m not suggesting for one second that I listen to my own music whilst staring at myself, flexing in a mirror. However, I did once have this on whilst training, when I was getting the mixes sent through after recording the album. Whilst it is no longer on my training playlist, I reckon that it’s a decent enough gym tune for any readers to have a go with!”

Other songs in Barras’ metal gym playlist included Avenged Sevenfold’s ‘Bat Country,’ Drowning Pool’s ‘Bodies,’ Soulfly’s ‘Jumpdafuckup,’ Machine Head’s ‘From This Day,’ Disturbed’s ‘Down With The Sickness,’ Architects’ ‘Animals’ and Bring Me The Horizon’s ‘Wonderful Life.’

Kris Barras Band’s latest album ‘Halo Effect’ came out just on April 12. The band started their UK tour in Southampton on the same day. They will visit Liverpool, Edinburg, Newcastle, London, and other cities throughout April.
