Just Another Metal Monday: Slipknot ‘The Devil In I’ Music Video

Haven’t done this post in a while, and what better way to kick it back off than with the new horror imagery filled video from Slipknot called ‘The Devil In I‘:

While I don’t like this particular song better than the band’s first single, ‘The Negative One‘, off the upcoming album .5: The Gray Chapter, I definitely don’t hate it and honestly love the video from a horror fan’s standpoint.  We get red sheeted ghosts, creepy crows, the essential biting off of appendages, a face peeling that would make Poltergeist proud, and a disco ball!  The obvious underlying symbolism is that Slipknot is going through a transformation based off of events that have happened in the past few years, complete with some impressive new masks to round that transformation out.

Aside from seeing everything in the video for ‘The Devil In I‘, you can witness the new look and hear the new album (out October 21st on Roadrunner Records) on Slipknot’s new upcoming tour – kicking off in San Bernardino, CA on October 25th and 26th for the band’s amazing Knotfest festival.  For the full lineup of Knotfest and info on how to grab some last minute tickets, go click HERE now!


Dirty Horror Spotlight: Slipknot

Maggots.  They’re gross.  They’re disgusting.  And Geena Davis gave birth to one in a dream sequence from David Cronenberg’s version of The Fly.  But aside from that, the term “maggot” was never quite looked at as endearing. That was until the metal band that you love to hate, Slipknot, came out and bandmate/percussionist Clown pronounced that their fans be called the baby flies.  The point is that you most likely equate maggots with death and horror. And Slipknot is definitely deeply rooted in horror.  Which is why I’m giving them the spotlight, because aside from their music (which can be horror based as well), I have to commend and applaud anyone who has the opportunity to bring horror in any form to the mainstream masses.   Continue reading
