Slipknot have been making several of their live performances available for free streaming over the past while and the band are keeping things going with their documentary, Slipknot Unmasked: All Out Life becoming available now.
The documentary features interview and footage shot during their in-studio live session at Maida Vale Studios for BBC 1 earlier in the year.
The band has been uploading performances from the show featured in the documentary over the past while. Finally, it’s culminating in the entire doc coming to YouTube.
The documentary is offering “A unique and fascinating insight into the career and controversies of one of the most successful and contentious heavy metal bands of all time: Slipknot.”
“The film combines new interviews, backstage access and an exclusive live session from the nine-piece group, performing six career-defining tracks at the legendary Maida Vale Studios in front of an intimate audience. The six tracks, one from each of the band’s albums, transport the group, acknowledged by many as one of the most extreme live acts ever, from their usual arena-sized shows to a uniquely intimate and intense setting. The film highlights the group’s phenomenal 25-year career, revealing how one of the most relentless and intense-sounding groups ever have struggled with drink, drugs, depression and the death of a band member, topped the charts, outsold their peers and picked up a Grammy along the way, whilst staying as bold, fearless and exhilarating as ever.”
