Through deductions via our comrades at MetalSucks and ThePRP, it's pretty clear that Slipknot's new bass player is one Alessandro "Vman" Venturella.

In addition to playing guitar for Spinefarm Records band Krokodil, Venturella has performed guitar tech duties for a handful of bands, including Mastodon, Deftones, and Anthrax.

Confirmation comes via some hand tattoo forensics. Here is a screen capture from the Slipknot video:

Meanwhile, here is a photo of Venturella playing guitar sans mask:
