Slipknot’s ‘Duality’ Festively Covered Using Acoustic Guitar, Slide Whistle + More
Slipknot‘s “Duality” is quite the fan favorite and has been covered countless times by esteemed acts and budding musicians alike. Here, the song is given a remarkably unique makeover as YouTuber Leo Moracchioli utilized some peculiar instruments to put his own spin on the ‘Knot classic.
Despite being led by an acoustic guitar, this cover maintains a strong sense of aggression. The rhythmic foundation is left mostly intact with an electronic bass, children’s drum kit and massive timpani to bring home the thundering percussion of “Duality.” Aggressive acoustic strumming and accented horns keep the sinister overtones at the forefront and even the barking vocal style doesn’t sound out of place in this stripped down version.
Moracchioli runs through a myriad of costume changes, taking on the role of several Slipknot members. There’s an overall aura of silliness here, especially when the slide whistle comes in to play, but make no mistake, this cover is seriously good!
All is quiet on the Slipknot front for now as the band prepares to work on new material for the successor to 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter. Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan had stated that the band has begun to write new material, but did not disclose any information beyond that.
