History Behind his Mask

There is meaning behind each Slipknot members' mask. They are a reflection of their personalities or a past personal experience. Jordison's Japanese Kabuki mask reflects a personal experience; when he was younger his mother came home drunk from Halloween. Joey was terrified of the emotionless stare of the mask. In the early days of the Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat album he wore one plain white. For the Self-Titled album Slipknot, he decorated it with a few stripes and dots of paint. For Iowa he painted it with fake blood all over his mask, and for Vol. 3 he did a variation of designs on it, more notable with claw slashes. He also quotes: "The design enables it to feel however you want it to feel; scary, evil or perverted. All those things held in one mask". He has made about 1000 different styles for his mask. His new mask showed at the Fuse Fangoria Award show is gray with red and black markings.
