Slipknot create huge buzz with release of new track ‘The Negative One’

After teasing us for a number of weeks now, Slipknot have finally released their new single, their first in six years and the first since the death of Bassist Paul Gray and the departure of Drummer Joey Jordison.
Despite ‘The Negative One’ being the first song without Paul and Joey the band still got a monumental buzz going with a series of cryptic teasers. Speaking to BBC Radio, vocalist Corey Taylor offered up info on ‘The Negative One.’ Stating “People don’t know what to expect from us and that’s kinda the way we like it. The great thing is that … The Negative One’ isn’t our single, Taylor says. “That was just a gift for the fans, like we wanted them to hear a piece of the album. The single comes out in a few weeks and it’s completely different. It’s more melodic, but it’s dark, it’s powerful man, it’s something different, people are going to lose their minds when they hear that.” Corey goes on to say, “It’s got the spirit. The thing I love is that everyone’s reactions are very, very similar. They love the fact that there’s new Slipknot out. They also love the fact that it feels like old school meets new school. Like you can feel the original craziness of the early stuff but you can tell that the evolution has happened. And that’s kind of what we were shooting for, ya know? Remember I said I wanted the album to feel like a cross between ‘Iowa’ and ‘Vol. 3′ and I think we did that. Wait till you hear the whole album, because this story is so deep and so honest and so crazy that people are going to lose their minds when they hear it.”
Slipknot’s video for ‘The Negative One,’ which was directed by percussionist Shawn Crahan, is creepy as hell. Mixed with dark imagery and a terrifying female character, the visual element adds to the full experience of ‘The Negative One.’ After weeks of Slipknot’s visual teases, we finally know where they came from!
