"Absolute Zero", definitely offers some interesting creativity as the main character is stuck in some sort of other-worldly realm. Within this realm, two versions of Stone Sour perform the track throughout the area; one colored grey and the other colored gold. The man is presented with a choice, his body getting twisted and warped as he struggles to make a truly impossible decision. Corey Taylor said:
"Absolute Zero" is the anti-hero anthem of House of Gold & Bones – Part 1. "It essentially lets you know that the hero isn't perfect, but he will do whatever is necessary. The video is loosely based on the fact that in the short story, the hero ends up in a very strange world and he has to figure out what's going on and what he'll do."
