Slipknot symbol
On the cover of the pre-release of the album 5. The Gray Chapter, the nonagram looked different from the one featured on the previous covers. It was the first time when the new color scheme including black and red was introduced. The regular cover of the 2014 album was built around a depiction of a skeleton, with the name of the band in red above, while the name of the album was given in white and placed below.
