Rising Ukrainian metal sensations Jinjer are here to party and throw down this weekend with the announcement of their fourth album Macro, due for release on October 25 via Napalm Records. Accompanying the announcement of the release is the first single off the record, titled “Judgement (& Punishment),” which you can view below:
Set to a stylized, playful spin on classic fairy tales – featuring witchcraft, and band members as animated figurines – the track introduces a reggae vibe to offset their usual groovy savagery. It’s an interesting development, albeit one that feels natural. It’s Jinjer‘s catchiest song yet, and a promise of expanded horizons for the band.
Macro follows Jinjer‘s Micro EP, released earlier this year to warm critical reception. Links to various pre-order packages can be found through Napalm Records, BigCartel, and IndieMerch. Jinjer will also be touring Europe this fall with The Agonist as support. Tickets can be purchased here.
