Here are the most replayed scenes in Slipknot’s ‘The Dying Song (Time to Sing)’ video

Music videos can be a really powerful way to boost the creativity of a song, can’t they Slip knot really need a lot more than their masks to be visually arresting. The video for their latest track “The Dying Song (Time to Sing)” wasn’t super complex, but fans obviously found some scenes more exciting than others.

In May, YouTube launched a new feature called “most played”. While the concept itself is pretty self-explanatory, it essentially allows viewers to see a graph of the most popular moments in videos as they were replayed the most often. We’ve already used it to see the most played parts of Guns ‘n’ Roses“November Rain” video in early Junein honor of its 30th anniversary.

Since the release of Slipknot’s The end, for now is now less than two months away, we wanted to analyze the most played scenes from the video for “The Dying Song (Time to Sing)”, which they released about two weeks ago. Although there’s a bit of a mysterious, cult-like story between the footage of ‘Knot performing the song, Slipknot fans seemed more concerned about the members of the band themselves.

The first segment of the video that seems to have been played a lot is the opening of the song, which features Corey Taylor sings a few lines a cappella. In the video it starts around the 0:35 mark and he pretty much just stares at the camera during this part. It’s pretty creepy.

The next two most played scenes are centered around Sid Wilson, probably because his new “mask” is a drastic comparison to his predecessor – which he actually still carries. The first of these two starts around 2:43 and the second takes place a minute later around 3:44.

What’s even creepier than the fact that Wilson uses his We are not your kind mask as a prop in the video is that it is animatronic. The band posted a clip of the mask while performing “The Chapeltown Rag,” and indeed it was seemed to sing along to the song. So maybe Maggots returned to the aforementioned scenes in the video for “The Dying Song” to see if it sang there too.

It’s easy to see the most played parts of any YouTube video, especially on the app. When you drag the playback cursor, a gray graph appears above it. The higher the peak, the more plays that scene received.
