Mark Morton, the lead guitarist of the heavy metal band Lamb of God, has reacted in the most accurate way to the recent tweet of President Donald Trump about Iowa by referring to the iconic Slipknot album, ‘Iowa.’
A great fan of Slipknot and the talented guitarist, Mark Morton, has given the best response to Trump while taking the support of the rest of the Slipknot fans on Twitter. After the recent tweet of Donald Trump, in which he said nobody has ever done as much for Iowa as he’s done, Morton got pretty angry.
The guitarist answered his tweet by saying nobody but Slipknot. Following Morton, the majority of his fans have schooled Trump by harsh tweets, stating that he wasn’t there when crops were damaged, and profit was destroyed.
As Mark Morton has been praised by his followers for his witty comment, he has reminded one of the greatest albums in the metal history so far. ‘Iowa‘ is the second studio album of Slipknot, which was released by Roadrunner Records on August 28, 2001.
It was produced by Ross Robinson and Slipknot. The title derives from the band’s home state, Iowa, which members have stated is one of their greatest sources of inspiration.
With much anticipation for the album following the success of their 1999 self-titled debut, pressures on the band were high. Their relationships with each other suffered and this was later described as the darkest time of their career.
It was also the first full album to feature guitarist Jim Root after only appearing on two songs from their previous album. Despite troubles within the band and with ‘Iowa‘s development, Slipknot promoted it for almost a year.
While more technical than their debut, ‘Iowa’ is considered the band’s heaviest and darkest album. It was a major success, premiering in the top tens of nine countries, generally positively received.
Here’s what Donald Trump said in his recent tweet:
“Nobody has ever done as much for Iowa as I have done for Iowa – Not even close!!!”
Mark Morton responded as:
“But Slipknot bruhhhh.”
A fan, whose name is Jack, agreed with Morton and said:
“Pretty sure they draw bigger crowds.”
Another fan, whose name is Matt, supported and said:
“Slipknot did teach us all that you can’t see California without Marlon Brando’s eyes lol.”
