Friday seems to be the day, meanwhile band continues the creepy tease.

Tomorrow might be the day Slipknot fans have been anticipating for quite a while now, the day when we get full details regarding the band's new album, and maybe even a sample of new music.

Singer Corey Taylor briefly hit Twitter yesterday, merely to note, "Heheh. Friday." The post started an avalanche of speculations, with various fans and websites claiming that either album info or a single must be on their way.

Nothing official can be deciphered from the post of course, so stay tuned for more info.

Meanwhile, the band continued the record tease, unveiling the fifth eerie video, along with a caption: "Succumb to/The Selfish/Creation."

Once all the captions so far are added up, here's what we get: "The Prescient/The Nascent/The Quotient/The Cystic/Symbolic/Condition/Egregious/Replete With/These Lesions/Succumb to/The Selfish/Creation."

Heheh. Friday.

    I must say these guys still know how to hype an album, even after all their problems

    If anything their problems only add to the hype.
    And a very slight hint at that UG. I hope it does have something to do with the album, I cant wait. But maybe 'Captain Fluffy Bug' gets a good 2-4-1 deal at his local pizza place on Fridays, who knows?
    "The Prescient/The Nascent/The Quotient/The Cystic/Symbolic/Condition/Egregious/Replete With/These Lesions/Succumb to/The Selfish/Creation." I don't know what most of the words mean, but I have a feeling they make a sentence... Especially the last few captions 'succumb to the selfish creation'. I don't know...
    After 7 years of waiting... we will finally get some music! I'm not just excited for this album, but I really want to hear whether it reflects all the teasers they've been posting. If they do reflect the teasers, we could be in for a massive treat
    I have a feeling that the phrases will be the lyrics of the single. The background music may also have a place somewhere in the song.
    The guitar sound towards the end of the 5th video sound like a backwards riff to me, just a stab in the dark
    They could also possibly be song titles for the album? There's 12 of them so far, most new albums anymore have around 12 tracks.

    I kind of thought that too, but "Replete With" and "Succumb To" are odd titles. It is Slipknot though so who knows?
    I totally saw the title and thought there was a new slipknot song in here. Way to mislead me UG.
    Just listened to the single this morning, after the few seconds I exclaimed . . . . "Slipknot is back!"
    I think many people are feeling that way, and I doubt their opinion is going to change in a couple of years time; this single DOES sound like their older stuff.
