Another album teaser arrives! Slipknot shared new song “Birth Of The Cruel,” following two previous tracks “Solway Firth” and “Unstained” in their upcoming sixth LP WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND. The new album will be released on Friday, August 9 via Roadrunner Records. Scroll down for the album artwork and tracklist. Slipknot last released their LP.5: THE GRAY CHAPTER in 2014, revisit here.
With the accompanying music video, “Birth Of The Cruel” unveils a casual charisma of WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND, which drives listeners’ curiosity. The music video posted on YouTube is vertical footage video featuring masked metalheads Slipknot members. Of the video, the flicker of the metal band’s purgatory masks appears in a flash. It agitates the tension and noise for the whole song. Video viewers comment the crudely made YouTube video as “challenge accepted,” “different” and “eerie.” While the video diverts some attention, the song “Birth Of The Cruel” does not lose its attraction. Its gripping beats and blistering attacks stand out in spooky ritual. The brooding new share definitely gives a taste for the full album. Check out the video below.
In support of the highly anticipated album, Slipknot is hitting the road for the rest of 2019. Slipknot’s massive Knotfest Roadshow continues on August 6 until September 8, featuring special guests Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth.
