Mick Thomson Finds You


Mick Thompson is a scary guy.

I shook his hand once and he nearly pulverized all of my finger bones and knuckles to dust.

He’s also been stabbed in the head by his own brother. Most people will never be stabbed in the head, let alone by a close family member.

And then there’s this video, which is 110% guaranteed to give you nightmares.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you…

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently teased some “massive news” from the band coming “in the next month or so.” Fans have thus far assumed it’s one of two possibilities:

1) The release of Look Outside Your Window, the album Corey Taylor, Shawn “Clown” Crahan, Jim Root, and Sid Wilson recorded during sessions for 2008’s All Hope is Gone. In January of 2020, “Clown” claimed that the album would be released “this album cycle.” Taylor has previously said that the eleven-track record has “a Radiohead vibe.”

2) This past November, Clown revealed that the band was working on new music. Shortly thereafter, Taylor said that “we’re thinking about kind of putting another album out maybe next year.” Then, in December, drummer Jay Weinberg told an interviewer that he “can’t talk about [new music],” which at least kinda suggests there’s new music about which to talk.

You’ll know more when we do.
