Slipknot's "XIX" Video Is Eerie, Fiery and NSFW

Slipknot have done a pretty great job staying in our brains since the release of .5: The Gray Chapter, their October 2014 album that came after a six-year break and a death in the family. 

Today they've released a grimly cinematic music video for "XIX." The brave watcher will encounter images of lace-covered women driving a hearse up to a gnarled tree in a field, and, hey, okay, sure, said women's breasts. The ritual builds to the burning of a coffin, which is like a more expensive method of cremation. Also they send it off into water, which is a Viking thing.

Recently in Slipknot World, Corey Taylor announced that he's voiced a character on the BBC's Doctor Who and the band's putting on three haunted houses through November 1. Trip a little further back and you'll find Taylor covering Green Day.
