Slipknot Announces The Knotverse, A Metaverse And NFT Hub For Maggots

Earlier this month, eighteen-handed Iowan sexual gorgon Slipknot started teasing something called “The Knotverse,” which we hoped would be some sort of narrative in the world surrounding Slipknot like the MCU, but which we knew that he would finally be a NASCAR-like theatrical hybrid event relating to NFTs. And that’s the last one!

Slipknot has partnered with The sandbox announced The Knotverse, a “Web3 home for the Slipknot and Knotfest metaverse experiences,” which will include…

…unique NFTs and Generative Collections, plus Metaverse Gigs, Game Experiences, Fan Experiences, Unique Collaborations, Wearables, and more. It will ultimately offer fans of the heavy culture utility unique access to new music, IRL events, festival experiences, merchandise, gear, masks, and more.

Says the Slipknot clown of the project (via Kerrang!):

“When I started playing Quake online in 1999 and Minecraft in 2011, it was another level. But back then I couldn’t have Sid [Wilson, Slipknot DJ] scratching next to me, I couldn’t offer visual art to the fans. All we could do together was play along. But little ideas like these aren’t just possible now, they barely scratch the surface. We listen, we watch and we go where our fans take us. And if you don’t understand or are worried, know that we’re going to help bring our fans in. We’re in on this for all of us, with all of us, and we can’t wait for you to see what we have to come.

I know I’m old and I have a tenuous hold – the best – on concepts like NFTs and cryptocurrency, but I’ll be honest, it feels like a chat room. It looks like a big chat room with customizable 3D avatars where you can spend money on things that don’t exist. And hey, maybe Slipknot fans will get access to all sorts of physical tangible goodies, but mostly I anticipate a lot of people looking at their credit card statements, wondering what’s going on, and then thinking, Oh right, that bundle of fictional shirts I bought while fucking amp after listening to “The Blister Exists.”
