Their latest track is taken from the metal outfit’s upcoming live EP called ‘The Other Side Of Metalism’. The group also released a live performance clip rife with glitch effects, the band performing in front of industrial-themed CGI backdrops.

In the video description, the band talked about the impact Slipknot has had on them and their music.
Voice Of Baceprot recalled them being “drawn and intrigued” with their mask-wearing idols and wondered how the band were able to pull off success while obscuring their faces, unlike other popular artists who “use theirs as a commodity”.
“We, then, realised that they instead focused on their musical capabilities,” they wrote. “Their heavy thumping yet easy-listening music is probably just one of the many reasons why they are so beloved by many metalheads across the globe.”
The band added that this inspired them to place “musicality above all else” and not abandon their identity.
Voice Of Baceprot’s ‘Before I Forget’ is the third of five tracks from ‘The Other Side Of Metalism’. They first dropped their cover of Irish band One Minute Silence’s ‘I Wear My Skin’ earlier this month, followed by a version of American rock outfit Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Testify’.
The trio are set to release two more live tracks in the next two weeks, including a live rendition of their original single ‘School Revolution’. The full EP will officially arrive in early August, per a press release.
In other news, it was revealed yesterday that founding Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has died at age 46. Jordison, who left the band in 2010, passed peacefully in his sleep.
