A full hour-long special will be aired on Tuesday (March 17)

[b]BBC Radio 1[/a] have produced a documentary about nu-metallers Slipknot.

The documentary, titled ‘Hell Bound’, is hosted by DJ and former A/Bloodhound Gang member Daniel P Carter and shows a behind-the-scenes look at the Iowa band’s recent ‘Prepare For Hell’ UK tour.

A shortened video of the documentary is available now via BBC iPlayer, while a special hour-long version will be broadcast by Radio 1 on Tuesday (March 17) at 9pm.

Slipknot launched their first full UK tour for more than six years in Sheffield earlier this year (January 16).

The ‘Prepare For Hell’ tour was the band’s first run of UK dates with their new touring bass player, British musician Alessandro Venturella. Drummer Joey Jordison, who left Slipknot in 2013, was replaced by Jay Weinberg, son of Max Weinberg, the long-serving drummer in Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band.

Meanwhile, guitarist Mick Thomson was rushed to hospital earlier this week with stab wounds following a knife fight involving his brother.

Thomson and his sibling, Andrew, are reported to have both required medical assistance following a fight. Police confirmed that the brothers both sustained serious injuries, with Mick Thomson suffering a stab wound in the back of his head. Neither of the pair’s injuries are considered life-threatening.

The fight took place early on Wednesday (March 11) at Mick Thomson’s home in Clive, Iowa with police stating that the pair were drunk when they arrived on the scene.
