Directed by Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan, Slipknot’s Day Of The Gusano documents the Iowa metal legends’ first-ever visit to Mexico City, in December 2015. Capturing a show that was part of a very special Knotfest Mexico, Day Of The Gusano features exclusive interviews with Slipknot’s members talking about the importance of their fanbase and the band’s long-awaited first-ever show in Mexico City, as well as intense, brutal live concert footage from the show itself.
Knotfest launched in 2012, but it wasn’t until 2015 that Slipknot took it to Mexico, with a bill that included Megadeth, Cradle Of Filth and Lamb Of God. Knotfest has returned to Mexico every year since, with this year’s line-up seeing A Perfect Circle, Korn and Anthrax on the bill for 28 October.
In advance of its 20 October DVD release, Slipknot’s Day Of The Gusano received a special one-day cinema screening at cinemas around the world, including the UK, Europe, North America, Canada, Japan, Russia, Australia and, of course, Mexico, where the documentary was filmed.
