Slipknot tease mask video

Slipknot have released a teaser clip from their video for The Devil In I, which will reveal the band’s new masks.

The full promo is due at 2pm UK time today, and comes ahead of the band’s long-awaited album .5: The Gray Chapter, due on October 20.

Frontman Corey Taylor recently confirmed the band’s new bassist and drummer would be wearing identical masks, and that his own had “changed dramatically.”

He said: “ for me, the mask is a representation of what’s going on spiritually, emotionally, artistically. It’s about what’s coming next. People are going to get a lot when they see this video – it’s going to blow their minds.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
