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.
Updating our story from a few days ago: Slipknot released a third album teaser clip via their website earlier today.
Watch all three released clips here below.
The band also announced the new clip via their Twitter account. The tweet was captioned “The Prescient/The Nascent/The Quotient,” leaving us to wonder “What does it mean?” a la double rainbow guy. Whenever we’re able to decipher it, you’ll be the first to know.
