Slipknot revealed their new masks in the music video for their intense track “Unsainted” back in May. 

Along with that unveiling, fans quickly realized that there was a ninth member in the band.

After the band parted ways with Chris Fehn earlier this year, Slipknot fans began to wonder if the band would leave the percussionist’s spot open or fill it with a new member.

While it’s clear the void has been filled, it looks like fans won’t be learning the identity of this member anytime soon.

Rumors have circulated from fans that the percussionist is actually Fehn, while others believe it to be a member of their road crew.

Then, they were recently toying with fans’ emotions over the matter, trolling us all over the identity of the mysterious ninth member.

Thanks to Reddit user Conflixshuns, we can see the words “Who is the new guy?” written across one of the drums.

Now, fans think they’ve cracked the code. 

The mysterious percussionist has been dubbed the “Tortilla Man” by fans in places such as the Slipknot Reddit.

Those fans now believe there is a photo of the masked musician. A photo is circulating on Reddit of a man leaving a hotel behind another member of the band. 

Fans cite a similar style of shoe as the percussionist wears onstage.

The commenters have been going back and forth trying to figure out if this is the man we’re looking for. We’ll just have to wait and see when the band finally decides to give us some answers. 

More Slipknot news

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has opened up about people who deny that the Holocaust or slavery ever existed. 

Taylor took to Twitter to blast those who deny those historical events and talk about how disrespectful it is. 

“I’m gonna say this for the fuckers in the back: JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T BELIEVE SOMETHING IS REAL, THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT ISN’T REAL. Denying things like the Holocaust. slavery, etc is a travesty to the memory of the survivors and disrespectful to the people who fought for them,” he wrote. 

Taylor’s tweet comes right after news that a high school principal was reassigned after he couldn’t say that the Holocaust was a factual historical event.
