Slipknot Fans Think They’ve Found The New Masks

Are these snippets of new Slipknot masks?

As we reported earlier today, Slipknot posted a cryptic video showing the different eras of masks, which flickers between images. And because we live on the internet and there are some seriously hardcore maggots out there, some Slipknot fans have been scouring the video for glimpses of new masks… and they were not disappointed. 

Check out the video below to see if you can spot them. Blink and you’ll miss it.

Did you catch them all? If not, a bunch of Slipknot-hungry Twitter users have got your back. Going through the video one frame at a time, stopping and scanning the footage for clues like a digital Sherlock Holmes, the Slipknot army have found what they think are images of the new Slipknot masks.

Judging by the images below, we can see different styles of face gear, from a detailed bronze mask to a featureless white sheet. We have no idea if these are the real masks but YOU BET YOUR ARSE WE ARE EXCITED TO FIND OUT. New Slipknot masks means a new Slipknot album, and it’s not long to wait now!

Slipknot are due to unveil something on Thursday, May 16, according to a cryptic video posted on their website. On Friday, they will be performing live on Jimmy Kimmel. A busy week for the Iowa killing machine.

Slipknot are headlining Download Festival in the UK on June 14 – 16get your tickets now.
