Sinsaenum are premiering the new video for their track Splendor And Agony with Metal Hammer.

The track is taken from the band’s upcoming debut album Echoes Of The Tortured, released on July 29 via earMUSIC.

Sinsaenum is led by former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison, who is joined by Mayhem and Sunn O)))’s Attila Csihar, Daath and former Chimaira keyboardist Sean Zatorsky, Loudblast guitarist Stephane Buriez and Seth’s Heimoth on bass. Frederic Leclercq, who plays bass in Dragonforce, is on guitar.

Leclercq tells Metal Hammer: “This is the video I’ve always wanted to make. We had a great team called Independent Film and they understood the vision I had.

“The song is brutal and I wanted to incorporate elements of horror movies which I love too. Im so happy with the result - we all are. It’s beyond our expectations.”

He adds: “The location was perfect, the make up artists did an amazing job and the filming process was intense. Some of us slept very little so it was easy to ‘get into it.’

“One thing about the contact lenses, we could see shit with them. So we were really blind in a hot steamy factory, covered in blood, with death metal blasting through the PA - perfect.”

Jordison is the cover star of the latest issue of Metal Hammer, out now in print and via TeamRock+.
