"My favorite Slipknot song is 'Duality.' I remember first hearing the song when they debuted the music video, which added an amazing visual element. The gritty energy and stripped-down aesthetic really made the song feel that much more raw. I think this song is Slipknot at their most creative. I love the mix of heavy and melodic--it moves seamlessly between the two. This song is a perfect example of how pissed a song can sound without having to be full throttle the whole time. I love the subtle but eerie piano intro and the way Cory whispers the first six words. It's haunting and beautiful at the same time. All of these delicate balances within the song bring even more meaning to the song's title. This song has always been a source of creative inspiration for me. Songs like this are what bands like Demon Hunter strive to write. It's got it all--heaviness, emotion, grit, power, melody, killer riffs--all wrapped up in a creative and unique package."
