vol 5 is coming...

.5: The Gray Chapter Propaganda
On July 15th 2014, Slipknot began releasing a series of teaser photos and videos to the world. The first video (below) was shown with the words:
"The Prescient/The Nascent/The Quotient."

For months, the band’s website and social pages had gone black, but all of a sudden there are quick-hitting images suggesting some new information is coming.

Most of the imagery features a hard-driving sound with no lyrics while some creepy imagery of a young woman flashes upon the screen. In the first trailer, a few percussive sounds opened the clip, followed by a building guitar lick. Meanwhile, the visuals show the woman in darkness hiding her face from view, then at a distance as she dons a white dress and finally there’s a close up of a bloody mouth before the clip quickly cuts out.

SLIPKNOT continued to release more TEASER videos up until they released the 'full' music video for the 'The Negative One', which made sense of all the previous teaser videos.

These clips were later used in the first music video, 'The Negative One' which was directed by Mr. Shawn Crahan.
