Everyone has a favourite era of Slipknot masks. The lo-fi, freaky imagery of the 1999 debut, the more gruesome-looking Vol. 3 visuals, the stylised Gray Chapter aesthetic… the Iowan nontet’s ever-changing faces are just as integral to the Slipknot story as their music.
Clown and Sid have changed dramatically over the years, whereas Craig and Mick have found a formidable formula they’re sticking to. But which mask is your favourite?
We’ve put together a poll below for you to pick your all-time favourite Slipknot masks from the past six albums. Every member from 1999 to present day is included, so we can create the definitive line-up of masked maniacs.
The most popular masks will be announced in the near future.
Slipknot’s new album We Are Not Your Kind will be released August 9 via Roadrunner Records. Pre-order your copy now.
