The Skinny: The mighty Slipknot headlined Heavy MTL 2015 and, as they usually do, capped off an already fantastic event with their awe-inspiring live show and signature “Beast Mode”-inducing metal. Touring in support of their latest piece of molten metal, 5: The Gray Chapter, it was not only a treat to see the guys play to such a large crowd, but to also pick the brain of Mr. Shawn Crahan (aka #6, aka Clown). Always a righteous dude, Clown gave us this awesome Tales of Touring Terror story, not to mention that he’s going to help us further by being in the premiere our forthcoming 9th Web TV series, Rockblot!
