Slipknot Unveil Ghoulish NSFW ‘The Negative One’ Video: Watch

Slipknot have released a video for “The Negative One,” rich with sex and satanic rituals, but not definitely not suitable for viewing in most office cubicles.

To celebrate the band’s first release since 2008’s All Hope is Gone, drummer and director M. Shawn Crahan adapted the band’s interactive website. The result is a full-length ghoulish nightmare complete with severed goats heads and a woman stripping off her clothes as she loses her marbles in a dimly lit, tiled cell.

“The Negative One” is the first single from the metal band’s fifth album, due this fall.

“I can say that, to me – and this is only my opinion – it’s a cross between Iowa and Volume 3… but that’s honestly just scratching the surface,” frontman Corey Taylor told Kerrang of the album in February. “I think the fans are going to be very, very excited when they hear this stuff.

“It feels like the story of the band so far, which is a totally different take on what I’ve been used to writing with Slipknot. But I think because of everything we’ve been through, it’s time to tell that story. It’s going to be everything you want in a Slipknot album, and everything you wouldn’t expect.”

The upcoming story will be the first one since the death of founding bass player, Paul Gray, as well the departure of drummer Joey Jordison.

Slipknot will headline both nights of their very own Knotfest, taking over San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, Calif., Oct. 24-26. Among the 30-plus acts are Danzig, Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, Anthrax and Volbeat. The venue will boast five stages and more than 20 festival attractions.
