(Banana 101.5) With the upcoming deluxe edition reissue of their album 'Iowa' just days away, Slipknot's Shawn "Clown" Crahan sat down to talk about the album and compared it to 'Apocalypse Now' and the beloved Stanley Kubrick adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Shining.'

During a recent interview with Artist Direct, Clown was asked to compare their album 'Iowa' to a film. The Slipknot percussionist sounded as if he had been waiting for someone to ask him that question as he delivered his well thought out answer:

I would say, not necessarily 'The Shining', but if you can imagine that child running through the maze at night with the snow falling and back-stepping his footprints to trick his father. It's not so much the movie itself. However, think about this kid running through a maze. I guess the metaphor would be life and having forces out of control, which would be the weather. It's deep snow coming down. It's freezing. You've got to fight all of this. He's running. Sometimes, he has to back-step and use trickery to move forward and be able to survive.
