Slipknot's official website is no longer pitch-black, as metal veterans have unveiled a fresh set of promotional material for the upcoming new album.
Tentatively due by the end of the year via Roadrunner, the record was announced with creepy video snippets on the web site.
Fast-hitting and sliced up into many pieces, it was initially difficult to get the clips sorted out, but one fan has ultimately attached all the parts together, presenting an unsettling video of a young woman hiding her face in the dark, just to switch to a white dress scene and end the clip with a bleeding mouth close-up.
The video is accompanied with what might be some fresh 'Knot music, starting off with eerie percussive sounds and developing into a guitar lick. Check out the full video and the band's latests social network posts below.
As for the album's sound, it was previously described by vocalist Corey Taylor as a "cross between 'Iowa' and 'Vol. 3.'" Furthermore, the singer has recently also confirmed that the record is "98 percent done." Stay tuned for fresh updates.
