SLIPKNOT has begin work on the official music video for the song “Nero Forte”.
Percussionist M. Shawn Crahan, better known as Clown, who is also the art director for SLIPKNOT and directed the band’s DVDs, took to the band’s Twitter earlier tonight to share a short video from the location of the shoot.
“Nero Forte” is taken from SLIPKNOT‘s latest album, “We Are Not Your Kind”, which came out in August.
Guitarist Jim Root recently told Kerrang! magazine about “Nero Forte”: “This is a Clown song, which is amazing. This one is going to be great live. It’s very percussive, and reminiscent of ‘Psychosocial’ [from 2008’s ‘All Hope Is Gone’] — but maybe an evolution of ‘Psychosocial’. Obviously, Clown is a drummer and percussionist, but he’s also a songwriter — and he always has been. Now we’re able to collaborate as songwriters, and this is what we end up with. When Corey [Taylor, vocals] came in and started diving into the vocals, he came up with this extra melody in the chorus line very late into the process. That really drew me into this song.”
“We Are Not Your Kind” sold 118,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
