Slipknot Release App 'Wear The Mask'
0
Slipknot have released their first ever app on iOS and Android, to coincide with the release of their first best-of compilation "Antennas To Hell". The app entitled "Slipknot: Wear The Mask" aims to help fans immerse themselves in the culture of Slipknot, and includes social, gameplay and photography aspects. "Welcome to what we are," says Slipknot's Clown (via Blabbermouth). "Welcome to what you are, and what we together have always been. Slipknot is not a band. We are a culture and you are our blood. We play for blood. Enjoy your new face. It has always been there with you. Strap it on and let's infect the entire world together as one. It's time to Wear The Mask. Stay (sic) and enjoy it." Slipknot worked with renown advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi to develop the app. Creative director Con Williamson explains more: "Slipknot's Facebook presence alone is over 12 million fans, so we wanted to create a way to give each one of those people an individual experience with the band. 'Wear the Mask' is an engaging, layered and multi faceted way to do that. Fans will discover an app that's complicated, disturbing, challenging and fresh, and really true to their core. This will allow them to keep finding new ways to get even more lost in the awesome world of Slipknot."
Have you tried the app? Does it live up to expectations? Let us know in the comments.

    Maybe I skimmed the article a little to quick or didn't squint hard enough during the first video (second is disabled here), but I still don't even know wtf it does!

    You can do the 'What Type of Maggot Are You?' quiz (game aspect), impose a stupid looking mask on a picture of your face (photography aspect), and then you can share the outcome of those two things on Facebook/Twitter (social aspect). What a great way to spend $1.99 -- on an 'interactive' ad for a greatest hits album.

    It thought it was going to be an app where you could get the perspective from inside each member's mask using the camera on the phone

    "Stay (sic) and enjoy it." Why the (sic)? There's nothing wrong with the sentence (grammatically at least).

    Joey Jordison claims that he had sex with his wife wearing his mask once. I wonder how it is to **** with a cellphone in your face...

    It's not compatible with my HTC Wildire S. I guess I won't try it then.
