Among the band’s most popular tracks, a Slipknot song that really stands out is “Snuff,” which is a track off of the band’s 2008 studio album All Hope Is Gone.
Considering the extreme aggression that the band is typically known to display, “Snuff” is a much different beast (though, it is still very heavy in its own right).
Metal YouTuber El Estepario Siberiano decided to cover the Slipknot song over on his channel recently, but with an interesting approach.
Rather than cover the song with your typical metal instrumentation, he covers the song using a… handpan.
This approach makes for a captivating presentation that sounds both lovely and haunting. You can check out El Estepario Siberiano’s cover of the Slipknot song “Snuff” via the video player below.
Earlier this year, we ranked all of the Slipknot albums from worst to best (not including the band’s most recent release, The End, So Far). Below is what we had to say about All Hope Is Gone, but you can check out the full ranking (as well as find out where we placed the 2008 album) by following the link below.
“A big testament to Slipknot’s greater artistry is that of All Hope Is Gone. This record marks the last studio album that the late Paul Gray would take part in creating.
“On All Hope Is Gone, Slipknot take much of the slower, moodier elements heard on The Subliminal Verses and create a truly intriguing and fascinating work of emotional atmosphere.
“There are still several moments of aggressive cuts, but this album represents what more the band are capable in creating. In a lot of ways, The Subliminal Verses feels like a “radio heavy” sort of safe – whereas All Hope Is Gone is a more daring kind of heavy for a mainstream heavy metal band like Slipknot.”
