Slipknot have just launched a Facebook filter so you can take a selfie of yourself wearing your favourite band member's mask, to celebrate the upcoming launch of new album We Are Not Your Kind.

Choose from Corey Taylor, Mick Thomson, Jim Root, Jay Weinberg, Shawn Crahan, Craig Jones, Sid Wilson, Alessandro Venturella, new mystery member affectionately dubbed "tortilla face" or random executioner masked maggot.

The new effect is surprisingly responsive, so you can even take a mini video of yourself wearing the mask – hours and hours of endless fun. The Hammer team decided to put it to the test, we make rather fetching Slipknot members, don't ya think?

We are trying out Slipknot’s new Facebook filter... hours of fun! #wearenotyourkind #wearthemask #slipknot Metal Hammer (opens in new tab)
