Viola and I have been out and about this holidays season. Needless to say, the past week or so hasn’t been very productive for us. However, this was partially because were working diligently on the post we published yesterday. In the process of catching up on email, I was informed about the new film by Slipknot for their new single, “Snuff.”
The video premiered on Noisecreep last Friday. “Snuff” shows a different side of Slipknot than I’m used to hearing, and the video has a surprising twist. Here is how Noisecreep explained the video:
Subtleties fill the film. The scenes unfold in apartment number 009. A skull sits next to a snow globe. Sun peaks through the apartment windows at different points, providing the concept of a time shift. It’s not clear if any of this particularly matters, but the sum of the parts seem to indicate that it does. A lot.
In the end, the short film for ‘Snuff’ provides a haunting look into the obsessed mind of a melancholy lover, heartbroken over a lost paramour. Perhaps we all live double lives in the end.
The video was directed by M. Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan and P.R. Brown. Without further adieu…
