Slipknot. A genuine sonic phenomenon, a nine-piece force of nature and one of heavy music’s most important, recognisable, uncompromising and creatively ingenious bands. Yet to their millions of fans across the world, affectionately known as “maggots”, Slipknot aren’t just a musical entity, they’re also a counterculture and a way of life. Now their incendiary live show from Slipknot’s .5: The Gray Chapter album cycle is captured on DVD/Blu Ray and digital formats and set for release on 20th October via Eagle Rock.
Shot in high definition and directed by Slipknot’s own M. Shawn Crahan, aka “Clown”, Day of The Gusano documents the Iowa band’s long-awaited and first ever show in Mexico City in December 2015 and will be released on digital, DVD and Blu Ray formats, as well as special gatefold deluxe triple vinyl/DVD and CD/DVD packages.

Talking about Day of the Gusano, Clown tells us:
Slipknot still has dreams for itself. Finally playing Mexico was one of them. It’s been a surreal life of rock and roll for Slipknot and the fact that the dreams still go on for us is simply incredible. Thank you.
Guitarist Jim Root continues:
We had such a great time at Knotfest Mexico… Not only with all the friends and bands that were there, but with the fans and the crowd we had to document it with. Now we get to share it with the world.
