Spliknot Iconic Mask History, "Clown #6"
Spliknot makes up with its nine band members, who are battling their demons. The members put on their masks and perform on the stage putting their soul into the song.
The mask culture in the band began with their first performance back in 1995. Back then, Halloween was just around the corner and the band was rehearsing. At the same time, they were going around in circles wondering what they would wear for the gig. That is when the idea of putting on a mask crossed the percussionist's mind.
A few days earlier, Shwan had visited the mall with his then-girlfriend, and as he walked into a Halloween store, he was drawn by the iconic clown mask. He tried on the mask and suddenly felt something else.
The American musician bought the mask, and while his bandmates were rehearsing, he pitched the idea of wearing the mask to their first gig.
At first, some of the members thought it was "stupid" but eventually agreed to it. After more than two decades, the band makes an official appearance with their masks on performing for their devoted fans.
