This darkly atmospheric funk-metal song is the most un-Slipknot track on We Are Not Your Kind
. The fact that it is bereft of bottom-heavy guitars didn't bother axemen Jim Root and Mick Thomson as some might suspect. "It shows a little bit more of what this band is capable of, in the sense that we've always done moody songs, or heavy soundscapes," Root told Kerrang
He added that the track "Do Nothing/Bitchslap," from the band's 1996 demo Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat
, is also close to being funk. "There's a fine line of this evolution - you don't want to lose sight of what you are," Root said, "but 'Spiders' shows that you don't always have to paint with the same color."
