We were treated to a new single by Ukraine’s finest metal act Jinjer some odd weeks ago, and now they finally confirmed the release of their upcoming Micro EP. Earlier this year, they stated that they were going to record a new, short and progressive EP in September. While we had no idea what they meant by ‘progressive’, we might get a glimpse at it with “Ape”. So please, take a listen and get your own impression of the new Jinjer sound.
It’s been two-and-a-half years since the release of Jinjer‘s latest album King Of Everything. For now, we will get some appetizing new songs, while Jinjer keep being one of the most heavily touring metal bands around. Here’s what they stated about Micro on their Facebook page:
‘Nearly two and a half years since releasing and touring for our “King of Everything” album, we all got the urge to start writing new music again. The passion to create new songs had grown bigger than you could imagine and we converted all that energy into something special and brand new … And it seems like we’ve created a monster and we can’t wait for all of you to give it a listen.’
As “Ape” (the aforementioned first single off Micro) confirmed, the new material is heavy and progressive. At the very least, it’s very technical music that doesn’t work with a poppy attitude at all. Jinjer walk against the grain and still focus on creative and progressive songwriting, while sounding bigger than ever before. Just take a listen to the song’s breakdown at the end; it’s probably one of the heaviest ones Jinjer ever crafted!
