Joey Jordison’s Sinsaenum Bandmates Issue New Statement On His Death: “We Did Everything In Our Power To Help And Couldn’t Get Through To Him”

Sinsaenum (Mayhem, Kreator, etc.) have issued a new statement regarding the passing of their bandmate Joey Jordison (ex-Slipknot). A cause of death has yet to be revealed, but the group said that the drummer “had his demons, and nothing hurts more than knowing that [they] did everything in [their] power to help and couldn’t get through to him.”

Here’s Sinsaenum’s full statement:

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend and brother Joey Jordison.

He was of course one of the most influential drummers in the genre, completely rewriting the game of metal drumming, and it was truly an honor to share even just a small part of that with him.

He brought something to the table that no other musician could, and his love and passion for music was unmatched in a world of jaded artists.

For us Joey was family, and like family we argued and cried, but mostly laughed, and cared deeply for one another.

His public image had a serious tone, with an evil exterior, yet he had the biggest heart, and we were lucky to be able to see the softer side of him.

Joey also had his demons, and nothing hurts more than knowing that we did everything in our power to help and couldn’t get through to him.

He never felt he was better than anyone and would go out of this way to put everything, and everyone above his own needs.

Our hearts go out to Amanda, to his family, and to the true friends that were checking in on him.

And to all our fans and friends who reached out to us in this time of mourning, thank you.

Considering everything; moving on will be difficult at first, especially since we had already started writing the new album, but we will persevere, and will honor his legacy in everything we do moving forward. This next record will be dedicated to the memory of him, as that’s what Joey would have wanted.

Hails, and Horns as Joey would say. We miss you Jsaenum, and will love you forever.

–Sinsaenum.”

Joey Jordison (Ex-Slipknot, Etc.) Is Working On A Book

Joey Jordison has revealed that he is working on his first book. He told the Impact metal channel the following:

“I’ve had a couple of offers from book companies and stuff like that, and I’ve been so busy, of course, with new music projects and recording and touring that I haven’t really gotten down to it. I can’t do it on the road, because everything else takes all my time as far as — you’ve got travel, you’ve got all these things that you have to do, and, of course, soundchecks and then you’ve got the show, and then you’ve got meet-and-greets, and then you’ve gotta meet the fans, of course, after the show. That takes all of your time. But as far as the book is concerned, I already started it, to be completely honest, and it will just take some time to make sure it’s absolutely detailed. Because I can’t complete it without completing the SINSAENUM tour [laughs], ’cause it wouldn’t make any sense.”

Joey Jordison (Ex-Slipknot, Etc.): “I’m Completely, One Hundred Percent Back, Stronger Than I’ve Ever Been”

Back in 2016, Joey Jordison (Sinsaenum, Vimic) revealed that he was suffering from a nurological disorder, called transverse myelitis, around the time of his departure from Slipknot. Now, in the below interview with Metal Wani, the drummer said he is now “completely, one hundred percent back” and “stronger than [he has] ever been.”

Jordison said the following:

“I’m completely, one hundred percent back, stronger than I’ve ever been, and I’m not just saying that — that sounds like a cheesy fucking line; I understand. But it took me a long time, man, to recover and get my strength back, because I got hit with something that… I mean, I never felt anything like this.”

“We all know the flu, the common cold, all that type of stuff. This is nothing like that. I woke up one day and my back was completely on fire. Next thing, my legs were wobbly, next thing you know I collapsed — I lost my legs. It was the scariest fucking thing I’ve ever went through in my life, and I busted my ass, got the right trainers and I was not not gonna play drums again, because this is what I’m on earth for. I have a great lady that supported me and killer trainers.”

“Man, failure was not an option whatsoever, ’cause I’m here to play music — that’s what I’ve been put on earth for. I think, honestly, in a weird way, it was a life lesson more than anything, and I wouldn’t change it for anything. I just was not gonna let this beat me.”

Sinsaenum (DragonForce, Ex-Slipknot, Etc.) Premiere “Final Resolve” Music Video

Sinsaenum (DragonForce, ex-Slipknot, etc.) have premiered a new video for their song “Final Resolve.” This track is from the band’s new album “Repulsion For Humanity,“ which will be released August 10.

Frederic Leclercq (DragonForce) commented:

“It is still death metal, it’s undeniable. But we found it interesting to mix it with other elements that we all like. This is only one aspect of the album and what Sinsaenum is about – ‘Final Resolve’ is just an obvious first single due to its catchiness. Because yes, it is possible to play death metal and be catchy [laughs].”

Leclercq also added the following about Attila Csihar (Mayhem) who’s role has been limited this time around:

“Attila is still a member of Sinsaenum. He contributed to some backing vocals and lyrics but basically had to step out of this album/tour cycle. Nevertheless, he is still one of us. We have his full ‘blessings’ on the new recordings — we were in constant communication during the recording of Repulsion… and Sean did an amazing job on vocals.”

Csihar himself added:

“Ave Sin-Bloods! Because of my duties with my other bands, I could not take part as much as I wanted in the latest Sinsaenum recordings. But that does not mean that I stopped playing with the band — it is just temporary. Check out our new album because it will shave your goosebumps, it’s a frightmare!! We will never stop to open the depths of hell in your souls. Stay tuned and raise your demons!”
