It’s safe to say that few expected the opening track on Slipknot‘s latest album “The End, So Far” to go where it did. A relative step into the unknown for the masked chart-toppers, that song, “Adderall“, has certainly fueled some heated discussion around the internet. In order to nail the low end tone for it, the band’s bassist Alessandro “V-Man” Venturella had to venture a bit of out of the box himself.

In doing so, he found himself utilizing an old Fender P-Bass lent to him by Justin Chancellor—the acclaimed bassist of the enigmatic progressive alternative metal superstars Tool. An interview with Knotfest saw Venturella explain how that came about:

“When we did ‘Adderall‘, we were looking around and I didn’t want to use my standard bass that I use live. Kindly, Justin from Tool lent us this really old P-Bass—That’s the bass that I wrote ‘Adderall‘ [with.] Those types of little things just make the album special.”
