Have you ever thought the person who sang the pt.1 is now at the pt.2 situation, seeking the external solution again 'cause she isn’t real?

I always thought Vermillion was about a serial killer obsessed with his new victim. Afterwards, once the killer completes the task… she isn’t real anymore and gone forever.

Like killpop maybe this song the she is the industry so basically maybe his love of music is making him sad losing Paul and Joey that was a tragic you know maybe it builds him up not to lose her at all

I guess Corey talks about a person who stucks in depression and tries to kill all of the aspects of his trait to feel better but it is the opposite of the willing that a patient needs.

Slipknot-spit it out
If fast rap and metal had a bastard child… it would be spit it out.
Honestly, most nu-metal has rap mixed in.

I’ve been watching your videos for the last hour. Im a metal singer myself and its awesome to watch someone react to some of the deep tool, korn, and slipknot songs without negative judgemet. I’ve tried to get counseling my whole life and have always been met with a reaction that my pain through childhood abuse, and my mental status from such is a result of my own sins. I dont believe in therapy or counseling anymore because through all of the judgement I’m also smart enough to know that most counselors have never experienced any real horrors in their lives and are making assumptions based on text books. I wish I had different experiences. I’d love to have someone listen to me the way you do these artists. My lyrics are a reflection of me, but never tell the whole story. You are doing something wonderful, and even though I’ll never see another therapist, you give me hope that maybe after I’m gone someone may hear what I’ve been screaming and take the time to understandit without judgement. Thank you for what you do. @heartsupport

I’d love to see you dissect some Radiohead. Your thoughts on songs like Creep or Nude (Don’t get any big ideas) would be a great start. Appreciate this type of video a lot! As both a musician and person with some mental health struggles.

Please do any of TEN.56s songs. I just discovered your videos with slipknot and literally cry at three of them. I suffer from PTSD and depression and this band is very therapeutic for me so I’m very curious to hear your views on them.
Thanks for doing what you do and listening

Vermillion 2 is basically is the prelude to 1 . In vermillion 2, an obsessed man rapes and kills an innocent lady and leaves her body in the meadows. His jealousy lust and lost love leads him to murder her. After that god tries to take her soul to heaven, but because in her death she is not buried with rituals, her souls gets stuck in earth.

Now starts vermillion 1: where her souls wakes up in modern world. Her soul wonders, and she is not able to recognise and talk to anyone. Frustrated she goes crazy, then a butterfly comes along and gives her soul hope

Pt 1 is from the viewpoint of an obsessive person who murders the girl when he realizes that he “can’t make her real” (be what he wants her to be). Pt 2 is the come down after the killing (“all the torment and the pain leaked through and covered me” refers to her blood literally and the emotions of the even figuratively). In Pt 1 he’s trying not to let his obsession build up inside of him. In Pt2, it’s his guilt that he’s trying to not let build up inside of him.
