Just a couple of weeks before the arrival of his seventh album, The End, So Farthe Iowa-based band Slipknot, has compiled its videos to publish again, now in high definition, dating from 1999 to 2022, with a total of approximately 30 videos from the most incipient beginnings of the group.
His debut video ‘Iowa’ from 2001 and ‘Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)’ 2004, are already available in their new version, unlike some known themes such as ‘My Plague’ Y ‘The Blister Exists’ that still maintain the standard definition at the time of publication, although it is hoped that in the future we will be able to see them in high quality.
The group, which has a total of nine members, recently revealed that some tense discussions arose when it came to composing and creating new material, as a result of the large number of people thinking of different ideas. However, this has not prevented his percussionist, Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan, from directing all the videos corresponding to his last three studio installments. 5: The Gray Chapter from 2014, We Are Not Your Kind of 2019 and the next to be released The End, So Far.
The latter has been teased with three singles since its announcement and some accompanying official videos to offer a glimpse of what will be “a reboot” for Slipknot, vocalist Corey Taylor commented in July. Drummer Jay Weinberg joined in commenting on the album, noting that the band “turned up the dials on experimentation,” referencing the involvement of DJ Sid Wilson, who sampled “different moons around different planets” to contribute to the tracks that we will hear in The End, So Far.
While the album awaits its official release on September 30, several of its members, including Corey Taylor, are currently working on solo side projects and plan to start recording their second album early next year.
