Vermilion (5:16)

Cover of Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses

From Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses and 18 other releases

“Vermilion” is a song by American alternative metal band Slipknot, the song is released as the second single from their third album, Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses).

When the band plays the song live, they switch from their ordinary masks and wear their alternative “death masks”, which is an actual cast of each member’s face.

“The differences (between the two tracks) are subtle — ‘Vermilion, Pt. 1’ is about the enrapturing, the buildup, the anticipation and the neurosis,” says Taylor. “‘Part 2’ is the aftermath, the pieces that have to be picked up later, and maybe the guilt of having lived through it. “. Both songs are said to be about lost or unrequited love from a possibly suicidal person’s perspective.

    This remains one of anthems of my life, no matter how deep into black metal elitism I fall.

    Glad they grew out of the pointless screaming constantly with repetitive droning riffs, so much more talent than that. Still don't get the barrel hitter and DJ though. [3] This track is one of their finest moments for sure.
