Joey Jordison: How metal's prodigal son made his return

2016 was the year Joey Jordison broke his silence on Slipknot, beat his health issues, and returned with two blistering bands

Few musicians have experienced the extreme highs and lows that Joey Jordison has lived through over the last 20 years. But even by his own momentous standards, 2016 was a big one for the former Slipknot drummer. In Metal Hammer’s world-exclusive cover story back in June, he revealed that he had been suffering from transverse myelitis, a horrific neurological condition that had threatened to leave him permanently paralysed. Meanwhile, he also announced the arrival of two new bands, Vimic and Sinsaenum. It’s been a hectic 12 months, and as 2016 draws to a close, Joey avows that he is a much happier man than he was at the start of the year.
