This masked cellist apparently prefers Slipknot

While the world muses over the identity of Slipknot’s Tortilla Man (Gilbert Gottfried? Is that you?), there’s another mystery to be solved. Who is this masked cellist with a fondest for the band’s music?

We know nothing of this uber-Maggot’s identify, other than (a) his masks are from the wrong era; and (b) he really loves the band.

The video’s description reads “This project was created with love and was driven by passion. One of the challenges I encountered in the making was to insufflate a more orchestral feel to Slipknot’s material.

“All content was approached with care and respect for Slipknot’s music, and Slipknot’s international family. No profit intention is involved. The only purpose for this work resides in reaching out, communicating and sharing creativity. I am grateful and excited to be able to share it with you all!”
