You wouldn't believe how unbelievable Slipknot are

Blabbermouth can barely save themselves from puking up their office festive pies with excitement at how astonishingly astonishing Slipknot are now:

Grammy-award winning hard rock iconoclasts SLIPKNOT have once again defied expectation. While no strangers to radio success, SLIPKNOT are climbing the charts again, but this time with an introspective track that challenges what some would expect from a hard rock radio song. This genre-bending new single, "Snuff", is currently Top 5 at Active Rock and Top 20 at Modern Rock and is climbing steadily.

When the time came to create a visual for "Snuff", once again the band did the unexpected. The band has unveiled a short film (see below), co-directed by SLIPKNOT's own M. Shawn Crahan and renowned photographer/director P.R. Brown, to accompany the track.

Cling, cling, to the crust of the Earth, for doesn't the very idea of a hard rock band knocking out a ballad with an accompanying video with pretensions threaten to almost disprove the very idea of gravity?

Let's hope Blabbermouth never buy an easy-listening collection by a nice, well-scrubbed young man. When they get to the lame cover of the rock song, their very heads might pop.
