Slipknot releases bizarre short film, 'Pollution'

Weeks after releasing its music video for 'Nero Forte', gargantuan Iowan heavy metal band Slipknot has returned with a harrowing short film, titled 'Pollution'. 

The 20-minute surrealistic avant-garde project was directed by Slipknot's head honcho, Shawn Crahan, known to many as Clown. Clown released a statement along with the video, stating: "I set out to make a short film that makes you question your own existence, here in this reality.  When you lay down in your bed, next to the one you love, do you ever ask yourself - is it possible that this person could slit my throat while I’m sleeping? Enjoy. Pollution is everywhere."

The short film comprises of multiple segments with accompanying track titles, as well as the inclusion of the complete music video for 'Nero Forte' buried deep within the abstract imagery. 

Slipknot will be performing in Singapore alongside Trivium on 24 March, at Fort Canning Park as part of SG Rockfest II. Organised by LAMC Productions, Singapore Rockfest II is set to be held at Fort Canning Park on 4 and 24 March 2020. Doors open at 5pm. Tickets can be found here and all authorised SISTIC channels.
