Sid Wilson

Slipknot's Sid Wilson is seen as comic-book villain The Riddler in a rap video.

He appears alongside Necro, Mr Hyde and others in the Batman-themed promo for Reel Wolf track Hail The Villains.

Wilson is seen solving a Rubik’s Cube while asking the audience a series of riddles via placards, including: “What kind of room has no doors or windows? I am the end of every place, the end of time and space – what am I? What tastes better than it smells?”

The promo is described as “a fan tribute to those infamous characters that have inspired generations of storytellers.”

In June, Wilson unveiled plans to work with former Limp Bizkit counterpart DJ Lethal on a project called Lethal Wilson. No details have yet been released. Slipknot are currently touring North America with Marilyn Manson, on a trip that was postponed after frontman Corey Taylor had to undergo urgent spine surgery.
