Slipknot tease Iron Maiden-inspired stage production in recap video
Prior to the kickoff of the Knotfest Roadshow at the end of the month, Slipknot have released a recap video of their European run. During the video, we see pre-show huddles, performances and a glimpse of the band's stage setup—a setup Corey Taylor says was inspired by Iron Maiden.
Check it out below!
In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Taylor discussed the Iron Maiden-inspired production setup.
“Honestly, it’s everything that we’ve wanted to do for years, and we just never had the budget, and we had also had a lot of people around us telling us we couldn’t do it. The show looks amazing. Not only is it interactive—there’s video, there’s fire—but the whole set looks like an industrial complex. This is our attempt to create some Iron Maiden stuff, which is something we’ve been trying to do for a while.”
