It's almost Halloween and you know what that means. Time to watch lots of scary things and hide behind the sofa because they're actually too scary. In celebration of that, are some of the music videos that gave us the creeps the most.
The Motionless In White frontman tells us about his first exposure to Slipknot, and how they went from being a band he just didn't get, to one of his biggest influences.
“The first time that I ever heard and saw Slipknot, I was not a fan. I was raised on the idea of this traditional five-piece band, that’s just what my dad and my uncle (who were my sources of musical discovery) instilled in me. When I saw this band that had two members that seemingly just fought each other on stage and didn’t do anything musically I was like ‘this is wrong!’”
"I don’t understand why I had that mentality other than I was just bred to believe in this five-piece band. It didn’t take long though. I don’t really know what changed, but I soon realised how amazing what they do is: it’s scary, it’s aggressive and I guess I was hooked. I like it when you come from not liking a band, to having them win you over. It just proves they’re a great band that can do that to somebody who didn’t want to like them.
"I think your opinion changing shows a progression of your interests and your maturity. People change over time, and it’s a cool thing to observe about yourself. Slipknot were a band I wasn’t really into, then they became one of my favourite bands and a huge influence on Motionless In White. It’s really cool to have that."
