In the latest issue of Metal Hammer we have the WORLD'S FIRST photoshoot with Slipknot since their return with new music, new members and new masks. Here's a rundown of the seven new faces of The Knot.
Trading Faces: Slipknot's new masks
We take a look at the (mostly) all-new Slipknot masks
You can read all about Slipknot's new masks, new members and new music in the latest issue of Metal Hammer magazine.
Perhaps the most drastic change of the bunch, Corey’s new face is that of a man torn in two and stitched back together. A metaphor for the band’s struggles, perhaps?
Rarely one to change up his look, Mick’s mask has incorporated a few more cracks and gnarled edges to fully round out the Hockey Goalie From Hell look.
The gas mask makes a half-return in the form of this gimpish attire that we can only assume has taken some inspiration from that clockwork Nazi ninja from Hellboy.
Shawn 'Clown' Crahan
The clown face remains, but it is a battered, war-torn shadow of its former self. Still the scariest-looking motherfucker in the band by our reckoning.
Is that a metal makeover for our favourite mega-nosed percussionist? We approve. Although we wouldn’t fancy getting that snoz caught in anything...
Jim’s theatrical jester face makes a return and looks even more evil than ever. We can only assume it now also features a special Massive Beard Hole.
While at first glance there might not be much new to report here, we’re 99% sure those spikes are getting even longer, so approach with caution.
