Slipknot are riding high on the release of their critically acclaimed sixth album, We Are Not Your Kind, which is trending toward a No. 1 debut in the U.S., U.K. and other countries. Today, August 14th, the band gave fans new insight into the LP via a "Twitter Listening Session" in which drummer Jay Weinberg broke down the album track by track — from the John Carpenteresque horror-soundtrack intro "Insert Coin" to far-beyond-brutal closer "Solway Firth," which the band recently played live for the first time ever. Watch the clips below.
