THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED. The winner was Francesco La Rosa with the following video. Thanks to all who entered, shared and commented on all the other entry videos, it was an amazing display of community and brotherhood.
We're sure you have all heard recently that Joey Jordison has left Slipknot, after 18 long years, five albums, four DVD's, countless tours, six grammy nominations and one grammy award in 2006 for best metal performance. We wish Joey good luck with his band 'Scar The Martyr' and with everything else he does in the future, as well as wish the band continued success.
In the past, Sick Drummer Magazine has helped several bands find new drumming talent and even helped place a few guys in great bands. This contest is not affiliated with the band or management in any way, but we thought what the hell… it couldn't hurt!
It's also a great way to help get your name out there and create some added attention to extreme drumming in general. We will send a contest playlist link to the label for their review and possible news coverage regardless, but do not expect anything from them in return.
