Slipknot bring The Devil In I to life

Slipknot have released a live video shot during their Knotfest event in California in October.

It features their performance of The Devil In I, the lead single from long-awaited album .5: The Gray Chapter.

Guitarist Jim Root recently told how he believed late bassist Paul Gray had helped him write material for the record, saying: “I was exploring the fretboard, trying different places to play. Then I realised – that’s the way Paul would work. It dawned on me that he was helping me through it.

“I’m not hugely spiritual or religious, but that made me think: people do live on through you. He’s always going to be involved in everything we do.”
