The announcement of the brand new Jinjer record Wallflowers, out August 27 via Napalm Records, has not only caused immediate ripples around the world and delighted international reviewers and fans alike, but the band’s first single Vortex, has already gained 2.5 million cross-platform streams/views in no time!
Continuing their unstoppable way to the top, the band has just released their head-splitting second single Mediator and a brand-new crushing music video. The second track cut from the new album demonstrates once again that their unique sonic vision combined with visual attitude is more than peerless. Frenetic drumming combined with technically adept, fast-firing bass and guitar attacks, merging with the unmatched mix of Tatiana Shmayluk’s clear vocals, pungent rap-like passages, and ferocious growling. The track’s high-quality audiovisual bombardment draws the viewer into the spell of the progressive spectacle and constructs the visual antithesis of the postmodern utopia thematized within the track.
Wallflowers not only presents a methodical and premeditated next step in the band’s already imposing career but moreover, it mirrors the personal adversities they’ve faced due to the worldwide events of the last year. Wallflowers is not only an upgrade to the progressive groove metal sound that all Jinjer fans crave but also a sonic pressure cooker of technical musicianship, emotional fury, and an intense soundtrack befitting the harrowing state of the world today. Hailing from the conflict-ridden Ukrainian region of Donetsk but now calling Kiev their home base, Jinjer truly do not mince words or riffs on Wallflowers. Their exceptional precision of modern metal paired with tough-as-nails attitude has earned them a fiercely loyal, rabid fanbase and massive critical acclaim, making Jinjer one of the most talked-about bands today and garnering them many sold-out performances across the globe. With nearly all of Jinjer‘s releases composed between vans, backstage rooms, and constant touring, Wallflowers continues where its predecessor Macro left off, only this time with less distraction and more time to focus on songwriting.
