Go Deep Into the ‘Knot with Slipknot’s Video Autobiography

Slipknot's new album, .5 The Gray Chapter is out, and it's the first album without Paul Gray and Joey Jordison.  The guys had been leaking out song after song on the web, so people could check it all out before the album released, and now that the CD is out, you can get deeper into 20 years of the 'Knot.

The guys explain what Slipknot is to them, talk about the thinking behind the masks, the rise of the band, and all the dirt and slime that is the mighty Slipknot!
