Hooked Like Helen Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Slipknot’s “Duality” with Epic Cover

Hooked Like Helen is taking on Slipknot’s iconic hit “Duality” with their own twist in “Duality (reimagined)”, and let me tell you, it’s a wild ride from start to finish! Nikki Stipp’s vocals lead the charge into a realm where emotion reigns supreme, backed by orchestral vibes that escalate to a hair-raising climax. Collaborating with Dublin-based composer Sean Michael Rooney, known for his work with the likes of Falling in Reverse and Papa Roach, adds an extra layer of depth to the track, blending delicacy with monstrous intensity.

Behind the scenes, the journey to this rendition wasn’t all smooth sailing. The band scrapped their initial approach, opting for a new direction that marries pop and rock while channeling the energy of Slipknot’s live performances and the magic of Disney classics like Frozen. And if that’s not intriguing enough, their lyric video, set in an eerie abandoned warehouse, promises to intensify the song’s already evocative atmosphere.

But there’s more than just music here. Hooked Like Helen is about more than just tunes; they’re about making a difference. With Nikki’s 11 years of sobriety under her belt, the band champions causes like addiction recovery, trauma healing, and supporting research for Epidermolysis Bullosa. In fact, they’re set to play a benefit show for EB research co-founded by none other than Eddie Vedder and his wife, Jill.

And if you’re not familiar with Hooked Like Helen yet, you’re missing out. From scoring scenes in Emmy-winning docu-series to sharing stages with the likes of Jewel and PVRIS, this duo knows how to make an impact. Their upcoming EP, “Promise Me You’ll Run,” is poised to showcase their versatility and evolution, promising a tidal wave of new alternative rock material that’s sure to leave a mark.

So, if you’re ready for a musical journey that’s equal parts cathartic and electrifying, dive into “Duality (reimagined)” and let Hooked Like Helen sweep you off your feet. You won’t regret it.
