In November of 2013, Jim Root went into his garage to begin writing new Slipknot song. He did this after a six-year break in recording, following the loss of a friend and bandmate, all amidst a period of great personal and professional change.
Nearly a year later the result was .5: The Gray Chapter - an intensely heavy and deeply personal album that has been hailed as a masterpiece by both critics and fans.
