The members from Slipknot in this video share their impressions of the sculpted masks that were inspired by the demons Gurulu, Daemon, and Loup-Garou from the game. They further share their unique perspective on masks, the iconography of the demons of Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, and how the band’s own masks affect their creative process.

Originally released in 2021 for the Nintendo Switch, Shin Megami Tensei V opens with the protagonist awakening buried and unconscious after stumbling across a grisly murder scene. He finds himself in an apocalyptic wasteland embroiled in a war between angels and demons. Before bloodthirsty demons can claim his life, a saviour emerges, and they unite to become a mighty being, neither human nor demon: a Nahobino. The Shin Megami Tensei™ series has a rich history in the gaming space and celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2023.

The latest title in the series, Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, allows players to enjoy the story of Shin Megami Tensei V in its entirety, with a new story path that was not told in the original release. In addition, Shin Megami Tensei V has fully evolved with stunning visuals tailored to modern consoles and new areas, demons and music to support an improved battle system, providing a smoother and richer RPG set amidst a war between demons and angels.
