It seems unlikely that Slipknot’s permanent replacement for late bassist Paul Gray made an appearance on the masked metal band’s latest album, .5: The Gray Chapter.
While band members have acknowledged that original Slipknot bassist Donnie Steele played on some of the record, guitarist Jim Root tells Blabbermouth that he and guitarist Mick Thomson did most of the bass work on the new album.
As for the bassist who will be with the band from here on out — Alessandro “Vman” Venturella’s distinctive hand tattoos were spotted in the video for “The Devil in I” from the new record. Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has also confirmed that Venturella is playing with the band.
