Slipknot Guitarist Stars In New Lupara Video

Lupara, featuring ex Broken Hope guitarist Jeremy Wagner have shot their first video with Thompson starring.

The Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson is featured as the main actor in the first video from Lupara, the Chicago-based extreme metal band formed by ex-BROKEN HOPE guitarist Jeremy Wagner. The storyline for the clip ? "No Pity On the Ants" ? revolves around a sadistic killer who enslaves half-a-dozen prisoners for his own twisted enjoyment. The video features Thomson as the killer. This marks the first time Mick has been featured in a music clip outside of SLIPKNOT.

"No Pity On the Ants" was directed and produced by Frankie Nasso of Raging Nation Films (MUDVAYNE, HATEBREED, ALL THAT REMAINS, WALLS OF JERICHO). The song comes off LUPARA's self-titled debut album, out now on Crash Music, Inc.

Commented LUPARA guitarist Jeremy Wagner: "The treatment that director Frankie came up with, along with the input from the band will make this video legendary. The song itself is one of our strongest and best-mixed on the album. When the music ties in with the storyline, the viewer will go on a crushing and terrifying journey with this video. I can't wait for the world to see this one. . . The few clips I've already seen of the narrative and the band performance have surpassed all of our expectations. Frankie and his crew, the extras, everyone involved went above and beyond to make this the best. We had a blast doing this vid...I promise, it slays! Having Mick on board made everything even better. His presence anywhere whether it's on stage, in person, or on film, is awesome, powerful, and intimidating. Mick is a true friend, and he f-ing rules...we couldn't have asked for a more perfect monster."

Well, everyone are allowed to have their own opinion and taste for music! But saying that Slipknot sucks just because YOU dont fancy their music is just so f***ing lame! Now to break it down to ya' Slipknot is one of the most talented bands out there! Each of their members are geniuses at what they do! Take Corey for example the f***er can sing whatever he wants from screaming to singing!
And as one of you said Mick is a crazy guitarist! So is Jim. But whatever i dont give a f***. Slipknot rocks my world! Peace out maggots! G'night!

Think about it, wouldn't that also mean say they're awesome because you like them is also lame? And there guitarists aren't really that great in the grander scheme, one of them is a Cynic fan though so they obviously have good taste.
