Hear Joey Jordison and Sinsaenum's Death-Metal Cover of Melvins' "Hooch"

Supergroup featuring members of Dragonforce, Mayhem and more update sludge classic

Sinsaenum — the heavy-metal collective featuring notable subgenre-spanning members like ex-Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison and Attila Csihar of black-metal icons Mayhem — are back after the recent release of their second full-length Repulsion For Humanity with a new standalone single. The group has taken on the Melvins' definitive anthem "Hooch," off Kurt Cobain–co-produced 1993 classic Houdini, spinning the sludgy doom track even further into extreme territory with a harsh blackened edge. The accompanying video solidifies the louder, heavier, more disgusting approach with blood-smeared closeups of band members on what appears to be each one's descent into madness. The resulting black-and-white product is equals parts horrifying and headbangingly catchy. 

Though Sinsaenum's foundations can be traced back to the 1990s, they only really got the ball rolling around two years ago with the release of their self-titled EP in June 2016. Since that time, the band has stayed busy, churning out two more EPs and two full albums, including last month's Repulsion on German label earMUSIC. While no U.S. dates have been announced yet, Jordison and Co. will be covering a fair amount of European ground over the next few months
