10/27/06 - SLIPKNOT to Release a "Film" - "Voliminal: Inside the Nine."
Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn Crahan, aka Clown, says that he put a lot of work into the band's upcoming video release, "Voliminal: Inside the Nine" and requests that people not call it a DVD. In a recent interview, Crahan says, "I don't really like that term; I'm calling it more of a movie than I am a DVD," "You're talking three-and-a-half years in the making. There were over 300 videotapes at 60 minutes apiece to analyze, and I watched every single one of them. There's, like, 325 edits in the thing, and each one of them are precisely put in for an exact reason. "So at the end of that, I didn't turn in a DVD, y'know? I turned in a movie, period. A film."

Crahan, conceived and directed the two-disc set which includes one disc of live footage, music videos and interviews with each of Slipknot's nine members and the 90-minute "film", which is a stream-of-consciousness style presentation that takes viewers on stage, backstage, in the dressing room, on the tour bus and anywhere else that was part of Slipknot's experience while making and touring in support of 2004's platinum "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)."

"Voliminal" will be released on Dec. 5 via Roadrunner, but unfortunately for fans, it will probably be the last from the band for two years. "We're all taking a nice two-year break," he says. "We've been home for about a year. I'm sure that within a year from now we'll probably be writing. It's a little too early right now to say what's coming in the future, but we are still a very violent organization when it comes to our art; I'm very interested to see where we're all gonna be at this next level of all our lives."
