This papercraft is Mick Thomson, an American musician, created by Mayan Paper. Mick Thomson is best known as being one of two guitarists in the Grammy-winning heavy metal band Slipknot. There are black and red two versions for this paper toy.
When performing with Slipknot, Thomson is known as "Number Seven", being that the eight piece band follows a numbering scheme for its members, ranging from 0-8. His number is also tattooed on his left arm, as "seven", which can be seen in music videos such as Dead Memories. During his interview from Voliminal: Inside the Nine, he has stated that he suffers from severe joint and back pain, which on one occasion temporarily left him unable to walk, and causes him difficulty when performing.
Aside from Slipknot, he did a guitar solo on the song "Deliver My Enemy" by the band Malevolent Creation. He appeared unmasked as a serial killer in the music video "No Pity on the Ants" by the band Lupara.
Slipknot is an American heavy metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. Formed in 1995, the group was founded by percussionist Shawn Crahan and bassist Paul Gray. After several lineup changes in their early days, the band consisted of nine members for the greater part of their tenure: Sid Wilson, Paul Gray, Joey Jordison, Chris Fehn, Jim Root, Craig Jones, Shawn Crahan, Mick Thomson, and Corey Taylor. However, the death of Paul Gray on May 24, 2010, left the band with only eight remaining members. Former guitarist Donnie Steele was the band's touring bassist in 2011.
Slipknot is well known for its attention-grabbing image, aggressive music style, and energetic and chaotic live shows. The band had somewhat of a meteoric rise to success following the release of their self-titled debut album in 1999. The 2001 follow-up album Iowa further increased the band's popularity. After breaking for their first hiatus, Slipknot returned in 2004 with Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) and once again in 2008 with their fourth album All Hope Is Gone, which debuted at the top spot on the Billboard 200. Additionally, the band has released one live album, 9.0: Live, one compilation album, Antennas to Hell, as well as four live DVDs.
