Slipknot's hard-hitting, aggressive metal anthems are getting the lullaby treatment…

The band's song "Falling Away" is a great introduction to Big Scary's sound. At first, we hear a common piano line that rings out above a fuzzed-out drum kit. But once the chorus kicks in, a mix of percussive keyboard and angelic vocals carry us away on a pop cloud.
"I love the use of dark and light in the clip, it really draws you in. Not quite sure what you're looking for or where the story is leading you until right at the end," singer Tom Iansek tells Spinner.
"The song itself is about being told life's lessons as opposed to learning them for yourself. It's essentially a song about growing up. But the video portrays an older man with dementia and is a journey in a senior's mind, trying to recapture a younger version of himself. The director, Daniel Cummings, brought that to it and the dichotomy between these two angles is one of my favorite things about the video."
