After weeks of online buildup, the members of Iowan metal outfit Slipknot revealed their new onstage looks on Tuesday (July 1), just in time for the launch of the inaugural run of the Rockstar Energy Mayhem festival, which they'll be co-headlining with Disturbed beginning July 9 in Seattle.The images of the new masks are available exclusively at Spinner.com, as a way to promote the band's long-awaited fourth LP, All Hope Is Gone, slated for an August 26 release.The masks, unveiled at Spinner.com, were described as "creepier" and "more intricate" than ever, with one reminiscent of that worn by horror film character Hannibal Lector.Some of Slipknot's new masks are markedly different from their previous versions, while others have changed only a little. A press release claims that "the latest masks are creepier and more intricate than ever," which they certainly seem to be.

Some of them look very similar to the previous masks but updated--like the eyes on Mick's mask are more detailed. Joey's is just insane, 133's looks dangerous, but I like how Corey's is a lot different this time. What's up with Sid's looking sort of out of place. Like something out of Stargate. haha.

Mick's mask still looks the same but it's still one of the coolest, and 133's mask is pretty awesome too.
