    After conquering the universe for two decades via their unique brand of metal Slipknot have gone and created their own! 
    In monumental news for maggots, the nine-headed metal machine has combined forces with The Sandbox to launch their very own metaverse, Knotverse.  

    Knotverse will allow fans to experience a Web3 home for both Slipknot and Knotfest experiences, as well as enable them to participate in live concerts and socialise with other fans in the virtual metal community. The band promises experiences curated by Knotfest and Slipknot specifically for their culture, providing uses with unique NFTs and generative collections, plus Knotverse concerts, gaming experiences, fan experiences, collaborations, wearables and plenty more. It'll all be based out of the Knotverse Lands which will inherit the festival’s dark carnival theme and integrate more than 20 years of Slipknot themes and imagery, authentically recreated in voxel form.

    M.Shawn 'Clown' Crahan shared his thoughts on this forward-thinking new offering from Slipknot

    “When I started playing Quake online in 1999 and Minecraft in 2011, it was another level”, says M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan. “But at the time, I couldn’t have Sid [Wilson] scratching next to me, I couldn’t offer visual art to fans. All we could do together was play the game. But little ideas like that are not only possible now, they barely scratch the surface. We are listening, we are watching, and we are going where our fans are leading us. And if you don’t understand or you’re worried, know that we’re going to help bring our fans along. We are getting in this for all of us, with all of us, and we can’t wait for you to see what we have coming up.”
     

    “We’re proud to welcome Slipknot and Knotfest as the first heavy music band to open a home for their community in The Sandbox open metaverse,” said Sébastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “We’re building the future of digital expression and social interactions and this partnership invites a diverse, freethinking new audience to experience the benefits of true ownership where any Slipknot NFT can be used not only in The Sandbox but on any other compatible platform.”

    You can find Knotverse online and join the Knotfest discord now. 

    Slipknot dropped a live video for the recent single The Chapeltown Rag a little while back. The video which consists of footage taken across the USA during their Knotfest 2021 run brings the barely controlled chaos of Slipknot's live performance to your device, on-demand, whenever you damn well, please.  Watch the carnage unfold below, Maggot! 

    The launch of the Knotverse seems to be another indicator that the band's seventh full-length album, which Corey Taylor has been publicly teasing for a while, will soon be upon us.
