Slipknot .5: The Gray Chapter Album Cover Art

Slipknot
.5: The Gray Chapter
MP3 | CD | Vinyl
Roadrunner Records
Release Date: October 21, 2014

These past six years have been a rocky ride for both Slipknot and their fans. When the band released their last record, All Hope Is Gone, in 2008, it was met with mixed reactions. Many of the band’s long-time fans felt the album ventured a bit too far into Stone Sour territory — That’s the other band that singer Corey Taylor and guitarist Jim Root were in: a band that specializes in more lighter, radio-friendly, hard rock fare. Many of the tracks from All Hope Is Gone would not sound out of place on a Stone Sour record. On the other hand, the album was a huge success and garnered Slipknot hordes of new fans and saw them continuing to be a massive concert draw throughout the album’s tour cycle.

Slipknot New Masks 2014

Slipknot has released the third advanced track from their highly anticipated new album, .5: The Gray Chapter. The track is called “Custer” and whereas the first two tracks sounded like a cross between the band’s second album Iowa and their third Volume 3: The Subliminal Verses, this new track harkens back to the raw brutality of their self-titled debut.

Listen to “Custer” here below.

Slipknot Release First ‘Official’ Single “The Devil In I” From New Album

So, apparently when Slipknot released the song “The Negative One” (and video) from their upcoming and as yet untitled fifth album last month, it was just as a gift to the fans. That song is an album track that was not intended as the “official” first single. Today, the band released the audio for what is actually being billed as the first single.

Listen to the audio here below.

The song is called “The Devil In I” and is much more melodic and radio oriented, whereas “The Negative One” sounded like it would have been at home on the band’s extremely heavy second album, Iowa, the new song is more reminiscent of their more recent mainstream sounding output such as their last album, All Hope Is Gone. At any rate, it’s a pretty great tune and indicates that maybe the new album is multi-dimensional, offering a bit of something for everyone.

Slipknot has just premiered the song “The Negative One,” the first single from their highly anticipated and as yet untitled fifth album. The song can only be unlocked by registering at the band’s official site.

The track is super heavy and in the vein of Iowa or Volume 3: The Subliminal Verses. Plus, we finally know what the cryptic phrases that the band have been teasing refer to: “The Prescient/The Nascent/The Quotient/The Cystic/Symbolic/Condition/Egregious/Replete With/These Lesions/Succumb to/The Selfish/Creation” are all lyrics in the song.

As part of our continuing coverage leading up to the impending and, as yet untitled, Slipknot record, we are following the band’s teaser clips that they have been releasing for brief periods on their website. The clips disappear after about a day and they have been forcing YouTube to remove unauthorized user uploads, so the first three are already difficult to find.

Today the band released the creepiest clip yet. Fortunately there are still user uploaded versions of it, so check it out below while you still can. NSFW warning.
