Shuffle Song Of The Day (5/1/18): “Vermillion Part 2 (Bloodstone Mix)” By Slipknot

“Vermillion Part 2 (Bloodstone Mix)” is a song by Slipknot from their 2008 album All Hope Is Gone. If you told me there were metal bands from Iowa I’d probably call you a liar, but I guess Slipknot is the outlier here. The original Vermillion Part 2 appeared on their 2004 album Vol. 3, and this remixed version was released on All Hope Is Gone 4 years later. The original version is very acoustic, whereas this version is a little more Slipknotish (An adjective I just invented). I like the computer effects, as well as the small heavy guitar riff toward the end of the song as opposed to the original version, which is why I chose this version over that. I admittedly haven’t listened to much Slipknot since All Hope Is Gone came out, back when I was a skater zipping around the city on my skateboard and drinking an energy drink. Classic middle school phase, and I bet I could still land a tre flip right now if you gave me 10,000 tries.

Favorite Lyric(s)

I’d do anything to have her to myself,

Just to have her for myself,

Now I don’t know what to do,

I don’t know what to do,

When she makes me sad,

She is everything to me,

The unrequited dream,

A song that no one sings,

The unattainable,

She’s a myth that I have to believe in,

All I need to make it real is one more reason,

I don’t know what to do,

I don’t know what to do,

When she makes me sad,

But I won’t let this build up inside of me
