Slipknot Unveil Official Video for 'The Negative One'
147
After dropping the song via their website on Friday, Slipknot have now unveiled the official video for "The Negative One."

Expect to see new lineup, including the Paul Gray-replacing bassist and the sticksman, who is behind the Joey Jordison's kit now? Expect further and get ready to be disappointed - the video only features the footage that could be partly seen in the band's eerie announcements. No band can be seen in the video.

"The Negative One," the first band's single in six years, is taken off the band's upcoming new album, the first since 2008's "All Hope Is Gone." It's still unknown what's its title and release date.

    This is a good music video, for another song though. It didn't seem to fit in with the tune in my opinion. Though, just so everyone knows if you don't know already... THIS IS NOT THE OFFICIAL SINGLE. The official single is called 'The Devil in I' and is being released on the 15th of August (I think that's the correct date). We should see them all in that music video.

    Wow, slip has finally done a song I can enjoy. the video felt like marlin mason had a daughter that stumbled onto a shoot for a tool video.

    this video do not fit with slipknot. Song is basicly ok but the video is crap.This is my first time that i give somebody thumb down.Love slipknot but this is aweful i admit.

    The song sounds exactly like it belongs somewhere between Iowa and all hope is gone albums and the video is dark, macabre and even has the obligatory goat in it. The song and video are both about 100% exactly what you would expect from slipknot.

    Does anyone else think that the video would be more interesting and dramatic if you didn't know it was an actress in make-up pulling funny faces...? For instance, the boy in Left behind and the girl in Vermilion were just people looking at the end of their tether for whatever reason... This... It's a little too 'tropey' for a world-leading band... Hopefully it's just a promo-video done in a rush and there'll be an "Official" one later on.... (?)

    the god damned production is ****ing horrible. some catchy riffs and a lot of unnecessary fluff. like the samples and the transitions from verse to chorus. just seems too over thought. even the drums sound too over thought, i just couldnt find the groove, a bit too awkward. the basic riffs where great and some of the vocals were interesting. its a very intense song and requires a good deal of attention to soak it all in. solid 7/10 good effort to keep it heavy

    Not usually a fan of slipknot but I gota say this was not hard to listen to, just the video made me uncomfortable, I'm not a huge fan of metal bands that meet the cliche of evil stuff, metal has always just been normal people to me.

    kinda like saying "I'm not a huge fan of edm artists whose concerts involve illegal drug use."

    My guess is even after releasing a video with the whole band in it, they're gonna keep the identity of the bassist and drummer in secret for as long as they can, if they use a new bassist and drummer at all.
