Toronto video and music production company Reel Wolf Productions has released the video for "Hail The Villains", featuring Sid Wilson from SLIPKNOT, Necro and Psych Ward. In the video, each of the emcees cosplays as a comic book supervillain as a tribute to the characters that they grew up with.
Wilson, who appears in the clip as comic-book villain The Riddler, is seen solving a Rubik's Cube while asking the audience a series of riddles via placards, including: "What kind of room has no doors or windows? I am the end of every place, the end of time and space — what am I? What tastes better than it smells?"
The clip is described as "a fan tribute to those infamous characters that have inspired generations of storytellers."
Wilson recently announced plans to work with former LIMP BIZKIT member DJ Lethal on a project called LETHAL WILSON.
SLIPKNOT was forced to postpone its North American trek with MARILYN MANSON by three weeks after singer Corey Taylor underwent what he described as "an unplanned spinal surgery."
The summer trek is likely to be SLIPKNOT's last U.S. tour in support of its latest album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", which was released in October 2014.
Following the tour, SLIPKNOT and BLACK SABBATH will co-headline the combined Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, a two-day festival scheduled for September 24-25 in San Bernardino, California.
