Go psychosocial for Shin Megami Tensei V Vengeance and Slipknot collab

Atlus introduces metal behemoth Slipknot, and a whole host of spooky new masks, in a recent promo video for Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance RPG.

If you’re a fan of spooky visuals, unapologetically aggressive music, and the undeniable comfort of a boiler suit, then you’ll have no doubt heard of a little band called Slipknot. The nine-piece from Iowa has been making a name for themselves in the gaming community for a hot minute, and most recently revealed a Slipknot Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance collaboration in a new promo video from developer Atlus.

With a Dead By Daylight collab that recently showcased their infamous masks in all their gory glory, it’s no surprise that the nu-metal legends are dipping their blood-spattered fingers into even more videogame pies. In the final promotional video for Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, members M. Shawn Crahan (better known as Clown) and newest drummer Eloy Casagrande discussed how Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance inspired their most recent stage masks.

The creepy casts are based on the demons Loup-Garou, Daemon, and Gurulu from Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, and Clown and Eloy explain how their sculpted masks pay homage to the ancient battle between angels and demons in Atlus’ newest RPG. When it comes to Slipknot, the creepier the better, and SMT V is a perfect representation of their otherworldly stage personas.

With Vengeance being a bigger and better version of the original SMT V, the RPG from the developer behind the hugely popular Persona games offers up a new story path, different areas to explore, as well as gorgeous visuals and new music. Whether that means a Slipknot tie-in song or not, we don’t know. But even if we don’t get one, we can still see a huge battle between angels and demons playing out to Duality looking and sounding pretty damn cool.
