    Iowa se grabó en los estudios Sound City and Sound Image de Los Ángeles, California junto al productor Ross Robinson, quien ya trabajó en su primer disco.[5]​ El Baterista Joey Jordison y el bajista Paul Gray comenzaron a trabajar en temas nuevos en octubre de 2000 y juntos compusieron casi todo el nuevo material para el disco,[6]​ mientras el resto de integrantes descansó después de una larga gira para promocionar su álbum debut.[6]​ No obstante, Slipknot entró en los estudios de grabación el 17 de enero de 2001 para comenzar la grabación de Iowa.[7]​[8]​ Este período fue problemático para la banda por varias razones. Jordison recuerda que "ahí fue donde comenzó la guerra" utilizando el arma de que Gray y él no habían podido descansar como los demás.[6]​ El resto de factores conflictivos fueron: el alcoholismo de Corey Taylor, la adicción a las drogas de otros de los miembros, problemas con los mánagers, afectando todo ello la relación de los miembros.[1]​ A pesar de ser miembro de...

    Hubo cierta especulación respecto al título del disco, ya que algunas fuentes apuntaban que se llamaría Nine Men, One Mission.[7]​ Más tarde se confirmó el título de Iowa, nombrado así en homenaje a su estado natal Iowa. Los integrantes de la banda han dicho que Iowa es fuente de su energía y que decidieron seguir viviendo en el área, en parte para no perder su dirección creativa.[5]​ La pista que da comienzo al disco "(515)" también es una referencia a Iowa, ya que es el código telefónico de la zona.[11]​ Inicialmente el disco iba a lanzarse el 19 de junio de 2001, precedido de cinco días de conciertos de precalentamiento.[12]​ Sin embargo, la mezcla del disco llevó más tiempo del esperado, por lo que el lanzamiento se retrasó y los conciertos se suspendieron.[12]​[13]​ Finalmente, el disco salió al mercado el 28 de agosto de 2001.[14]​ Poco después, para promocionar el disco, Slipknot comenzó su gira Iowa World Tour, que incluyó actuaciones en el Ozzfest de 2001,[15]​ una gira est...

    A pesar de que el estilo musical de Slipknot es difícil de definir debido a la gran variedad de géneros que abarca, muchas fuentes suelen incluirles dentro del movimiento del nu metal y mencionan otros géneros como metal alternativo.[15]​ Antes del lanzamiento de Iowa, los miembros de la banda prometieron un disco mucho más duro y oscuro que Slipknot y muchos críticos les alabaron por conseguirlo; cumpliendo así su promesa.[13]​ En una entrevista de 2008, el percusionista Shawn Crahan evaluó la creación del disco, diciendo que el sonido oscuro se debe a su estado mental en ese período: "Cuando hicimos Iowa, nos odiábamos los unos a los otros. Odiábamos el mundo y el mundo nos odiaba a nosotros".[23]​ Iowa, al contrario que su predecesor, contó con Ross Robinson, que supo capturar la parte técnica de la banda en oposición a la energía cruda que se captó en su disco debut.[24]​ Los críticos también alabaron a la banda por la utilización de gran cantidad de percusionistas y electrónica...

    Siguiendo el éxito del álbum debut de la banda, el autor Dick Porter escribió que las expectativas de su siguiente disco eran muy intensas.[8]​ Antes del lanzamiento, el batería Jordison dijo: "Esperad a oír nuestro siguiente disco. Machaca al primero. Esta mierda es el doble de técnico, tres veces más duro".[13]​ El College Music Journal dijo en su reseña que era "brutal, implacable, abrasador [...]".[32]​ Muchas reseñas celebraron las canciones más duras. Alternative Press afirmó que "es como tener una bolsa de plástico en la cabeza mientras Satán usa tu escroto como saco de boxeo...".[33]​ NME comentó que es "estimulante, brutal y muy bueno".[34]​ Rolling Stone alabó el disco por su originalidad, diciendo que a su lado "casi cualquier cosa del doom rock moderno suena banal".[25]​ El productor Ross Robinson también recibió alabanzas por su trabajo en el disco; Uncut dijo que su producción es la de todo un experto".[35]​ John Mulvey, crítico de Yahoo dijo: "Son el final de la evolu...

    Iowa City was created by an act of Legislative Assembly of the Iowa Territory on January 21, 1839, fulfilling the desire of Governor Robert Lucas to move the capital out of Burlingtonand closer to the center of the territory. This act began: Commissioners Chauncey Swan and John Ronalds met on May 1 in the small settlement of Napoleon, south of present-day Iowa City, to select a site for the new capital city. The following day the commissioners selected a site on bluffs above the Iowa Rivernorth of Napoleon, placed a stake in the center of the proposed site and began planning the new capital city.
