Slipknot Premiere Crushing New Song, "The Negative One"

Slipknot Premiere Crushing New Song,

After a long series of video teasers for their highly anticipated fifth album, Slipknot have premiered a far-beyond-heavy new song, "The Negative One"--their first original song in six years, and first ever without drummer Joey Jordison, who split with the group in 2013, and bassist Paul Gray, who passed away in 2010. The track can be streamed below or on Slipknot's official website.

Crank it up loud and let us know what you think in the comments.

Frontman Corey Taylor has described the musical direction of the new album as "a great mesh" of 2001's 'Iowa' and 2004's 'Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses).' "You've got the gorgeous melodies and the artistic direction of 'Vol. 3' and then you've got the absolute brutality of 'Iowa,' he said. "And I think people are gonna lose their minds when they hear it."
