Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat is the debut album by the "heavy metal" band Slipknot. Released independently on October 31, 1996, the album was re-released on July 13 1997 through -ismist Recordings. The album was a limited edition, with only 2000 copies released. Since the success of the band's self-titled second album, the record was distributed on the Internet through several file sharing systems.

Though the basic elements of Slipknot's later sound is present, the album is substantially different to later Slipknot releases. Rap-influenced vocals are present, and the riffs are similar, but the album was recorded before many of the members of the current incarnation of Slipknot joined, and lacks the electronic influence these members brought to the band. Instead, there is an intense experimentation in the album, of Jazz, Industrial and Funk influences.

Several songs from Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat were later re-recorded, and in some cases re-written, for Slipknot including: "Slipknot" (which became "(sic)"), "Only One" and "Tattered and Torn". Iowa also featured majorly rewritten versions of "Gently" and "Killers are Quiet"—in the case of "Gently", only one riff and the title were preserved.
