Report: SLIPKNOT's 'Duality' Video Cost Nearly Half A Million To Produce

A KCCI TV (Iowa) report on the making of the new SLIPKNOT promotional video for the song "Duality" has been posted online at this location.

The clip, which reportedly cost between $300,000 and $500,000 to produce, was shot at a house in West Des Moines, Iowa last Saturday (March 27) and featured more than 350 fans of the group (or "maggots", as they're affectionately called), many of whom had traveled from as far as Ukraine and Great Britain to attend the shoot.

Since the filming was completed, the family in West Des Moines, Iowa, who rented their house to SLIPKNOT for the shoot, have asked the band to replace or fix a number of items that they say were severely damaged by the hundreds of "maggots" who were present for the filming. These items include broken windows throughout the house, new painted kitchen destroyed, damage to the driveway, torn-up lawn, front door destroyed, rugs sustained water damage, whole house needs repainting, gutters were broken, back door and window frames broken, equipment missing, basketball backboard trashed, damage from cigarette butts, ceiling destroyed where chandelier fell, and picnic tables broken.

The "Duality" video shoot was helmed by the directing duo of Mark Klasfeld and Tony Petrossian. The track comes off the band's new album, "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)", due on May 25 through Roadrunner Records.
