Slipknot To Enter The Metaverse With Their Own ‘Knotverse’


Masked metal titans Slipknot have announced they are headed into the metaverse with the upcoming launch of their own ‘Knotverse‘. The group have partnered with The Sandbox to make their vision a reality, bringing the band and their activities into the digitally interactive realm, while also serving up NFTs and more.

According to the band’s website Knotfest, “The roadmap will see unique NFTs and generative collections, plus metaverse concerts, gaming and fan experiences, unique collaborations, wearables and much more all in a concerted effort to increase the presence of heavy culture in the metaverse. Additionally, the partnership will include a vital element of utility through access to new music, IRL events, festival experiences, merchandise, gear, masks, and more.”

Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan commented:

“When I started playing ‘Quake‘ online in 1999 and ‘Minecraft‘ in 2011, it was another level. But at the time, I couldn’t have Sid scratching next to me, I couldn’t offer visual art to fans. All we could do together was play the game.

But little ideas like that are not only possible now, they barely scratch the surface. We are listening, we are watching, and we are going where our fans are leading us. And if you don’t understand or you’re worried, know that we’re going to help bring our fans along.

We are getting in this for all of us, with all of us, and we can’t wait for you to see what we have coming up.”

Sébastien Borget, COO and co-founder of The Sandbox added:

“We’re proud to welcome Slipknot and Knotfest as the first heavy music band to open a home for their community in The Sandbox open metaverse. We’re building the future of digital expression and social interactions and this partnership invites a diverse, freethinking new audience to experience the benefits of true ownership where any Slipknot NFT can be used not only in The Sandbox but on any other compatible platform.”
