You may be thinking to yourself that Slipknot already has an official clown member in the band (Hi Shawn!), to which you wouldn’t be wrong. That being said, the nine-member metal group has always had a bit of a horror edge to them, which is why the below video from YouTuber Adêtue works so damn well!
A drum cover of the band’s song “The Devil In I”, Adêtue performs it while dressed and made up to look like Pennywise from Andy Muschietti’s IT (review). The end result is not only a pretty badass cover but one that looks like it would fit right into the band’s music video library.
All I know that is that what we need now is for the band to get license approvals for their next masks to be their own versions of horror movie characters. If that wouldn’t be one of the most badass moments in horror/metal crossovers, I don’t know what would!
