    Here's a new Slipknot video, check it out.



    I'm digging this one. The album is out early August.

    This is a bit different for them, I like it. Also, I could swear I've seen the old lady actress before in some horror movie, but I can't put my finger on which one.

    As a side note, Sid, as usual, has the coolest outfit / mask of the band.

    Dig it. Much better than All Out Life.

    Looks like the new album is called “We Are Not Your Kind” and will be our August 9th. Sweet.

    I really want to like it, but I just can't get into Slipknot anymore.
    Was already the same with .5 the gray chapter, I don't feel their newer material.

    I gotta say the intro with the choir and the melody was pretty cringy but man, I gotta admit that they really captured the sound of the first two albums with the rest of the song. Carefully excited for the new album.

    I like it. This is for radio airplay to promote the album prior to release. I'm sure there'll be more heavier stuffs on the album. Can't wait!!

    I dig it a lot, and I'm curious who the ninth is. I like Craig's "mohawk," too. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I dig the melodic bits. I also really like the production this album and the grey chapter. Really wasn't a fan of the production on vol 3 and ahig. Not familiar with who produces them, but if it's the same folks, then they've definitely gone in a direction I like.

    Really love this song way more than all out life, which I felt was forgettable. Has me excited for the new album for sure.

    It’s meh for me. Ever since Joey left I can’t stand the drums in Slipknot. It’s like Lars Ulrich sped up.

    Also Corey’s new mask looks like a damn condom

    Doing what they want, to each their own, but God damn that is a boring, forgettable song.

    And I agree, Corey looks ridiculous.

    Had some cool parts. That beginning was cringe worthy for sure. Doesn't make me to hyped for the new album though.

    Damn, the first Slipknot song I've liked since Iowa came out. The chorus is a little cringey lyric wise but other than that it was pretty good. I also like how Mick has basically kept the same mask ever since the beginning, I couldn't see him wearing any thing else.

    I'm sure the new member is this guy. I mean, Slipknot would be stupid not to hire this talent. :lol:

    Loved the verse sections, didn’t care for the rest. Corey’s new mask is...not even vaguely good/scary/interesting.

    The cloaked robes would be a cool look for the band in concert. All Portal-like.

    Would nearly bet on the new guy being Clown's son. He's worked for the band before as a roadie and he's a drummer too.

    The slow middle riff section was cool but otherwise the song was bad radio metal. I can't think of solid song that Slipknot have put out since Iowa though, so I'm not disappointed. I stopped expecting anything of Slipknot years ago.

    Corey and Sid's new masks look downright goofy too. More silly than scary or cool.

    Not a fan. That chorus sounded like it could have been copy-pasted from any number of bad nu-metal songs from the 00s, especially the stupid octaves on guitar. I like that there was a blastbeat in one part?

    what?! seriously?.... at first I though he wasnt even wearing a mask at all and going for the "you can barely see me under the cloth kind adeal, then I notice its a "human" kinda mask.... pertty boring, and doesnt really fits me with what Slipknot have been doing... same with Corey's mask

    [​IMG]

    with that hair the extra clothes, bit coat, massive "scarf" kinda thing, he looks like the crazy pigeon old lady on a park during winter. Kinda trow their image out, specialy him being the frontman. Sid hides and runs around so at least hes not in your face that much,

    that would be pretty awesome if true

    yup

    and fuck that.. "design" the guy took a basketball facemask, made it full face, did it on bit more opaque color and call it a day.... and I would be pretty sure he also call it "art" and sold it to him for $$$$$$$$$$$

    Is it just me or does the Chris replacement look poorly photoshopped into the pic?

    That's not just you, looks like that to me as well.

    As for the song, I think it's pretty meh. Lame video. I do like that slow middle riff, sounds almost like crowbar for a few bars.
