Original licensed Slipknot Masks of the cult band Slipknot from Iowa / USA
The controversial US-American Nu-Metal band Slipknot caused quite a stir since their foundation. With their first demo "Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat.", which was released in 1996, they aroused the interest of some record labels, but the brutal sound - a mixture of hardcore metal, hip hop, death metal paired with archaic rhythms and their shocking Slipknot masks - was a bit too violent for the American radio landscape.
Controversial lyrics and flamboyant stage presence.
Aside from the band's thuggish sound, their outward appearance is also an essential part of their overall image. Since the beginning, Slipknot have appeared with specially designed horror masks that rival any Halloween mask. Each Slipknot mask reflects the character of its wearer and has a direct reference to personal experiences of the respective musicians. This is also reflected in the sometimes very crass lyrics, which have already led to hostility and censorship several times. Also, these lyrics were already brought in connection with some school massacres, but the band strictly distanced themselves and expressed their condolences to the bereaved families of the victims.
Slipknot masks as a cult object
In the meantime, Slipknot masks have become a real hit, and not only among fans. At Halloween parties, metal festivals and of course at concerts of the band you can admire the Slipknot masks. And since there are always new designs - especially when a new musician joins the band - it never gets boring and there are always new Slipknot masks on the market.
