Heavy metal band Slipknot known for its iconic masks and aggressive sound, has released a new single titled “Bone Church”. Unlike the usual Slipknot ragers, this song focuses on slow beats and soft vocals.
The lyrics, written by lead vocalist Corey Taylor, are cryptic and atmospheric, drawing the listener into the haunting world of Slipknot. The music video for “Bone Church” is just as intense as the track itself, with surreal visuals that complement the dark and foreboding atmosphere of the song.
Percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan stated: “On the road, we have a ‘jam room’ set up backstage at every show, where we play, practice, warm up and sometimes try out new ideas, ‘Bone Church’ started life in a jam room on the .5: The Gray Chapter tour. We’ve been bringing it closer and closer to life ever since, and finally, here it is. This one is for the fans a further vision deeper into Slipknot’s history, which is still being written. Enjoy.”
“I always thought, What would it be like if Slipknot was big enough that we weren’t held to albums? Hey, instead of waiting two years for 12 songs, I’m gonna give you one song every month. So in reality, I’m shaving a year off for the same thing. You have to go with me on this journey, but what I promise you is, there’s artwork that goes with it, there’s utility that goes with it, it’s cheaper than what a normal individual song would be… And it’s gone through all the filters, it’s gone through the band, it’s gone through Corey Taylor, it’s gone through a professional mixer and masterer no avenues have been chopped up, it’s all business as usual. And we want to do this because I think it’s time for you, our fans, to get everything.”
