This year's Halloween came with a total dose of brutality produced in Iowa.

The macabre non-metal theme Slipknot presented "All Out Life" this week, the band's first release in four years. The song is accompanied by a video directed by the co-founder and percussionist of Slipknot, M. Shawn "Clown" Crahan.

Watch the video below.

Slipknot's leader, Corey Taylor, talked about "All Out Life" with Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1, and called the band's next album "one of the darkest chapters in the history of Slipknot; it's very good "

The song delivers a double message, Taylor said in a press release: "Gather everyone, but also remind them that the past is not something that is dismissed with disdain."

"People are so eager to find the next big thing that is sometimes – in all the bands and artists that have come before, making the past feel disposable, like something dirty. (Expletive) That: Why Should we pay? Do you pay attention to your mediocre future when you can not bother to celebrate an incredible past? I prefer to hear a guaranteed blow than a forced failure. "All Out Life" is the anthem that reminds people that it is not the date in the Music is the power of permanence. "

Plus: Slipknot will be playing at the Iowa State Fair Tribune next summer
