Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison spoke in an interview with Stormbringer and revealed the story about how they decided to form Sinsaenum. Here’s the statement:

“Slipknot were touring on ‘All Hope Is Gone’, and we had Dragonforce open up for us. Dragonforce bassist Frédéric Leclercq and I] just started hanging out, and the next thing you know, we started talking about our love for death metal and black metal and talked about side projects and stuff like that.

A lot of bands talk about, ‘We need to work together. We need to do this. We need to do that. As soon as we get off tour, we’re going to form a band,’ but this really came into reality, and now, he were are. It’s been a great journey so far, and the journey continues.”

He also talked about his current health status and said:

“Everything’s fine. Tons of therapy; great trainers. All my health is good. Can’t complain. I keep getting this question, and it starts getting annoying. It starts pissing me off a little bit [laughs], but I can kick my leg out.

I lost my legs completely, and I start thinking about people that honestly have lost their legs completely — they can’t walk or [are] on crutches and stuff like that — and how thankful I am for my trainers and my lady and the determination to be able to get back up on my feet and not let anything beat me.”
