*In this segment we put guitarists and bassists from every metal genre you could imagine in the spotlight!*
Welcome to the first bassist that I will talk to you about today from our brand new segment Kings Of Strings, this will be a weekly segment that I will put out for you guys every friday. It main purpose will be to put the spotlight on a bassist or guitar player from every metal genre you could think of. This week will be all about bassist Eugene Kostyuk!
JINJER is by far one of the most beautifully fierce bands I have heard in some time. They have these beautiful melodic vocals, followed up by deep and thundering screams via lead vocalist Tatiana Shmailyuk. JINJER has easily become my favorite female fronted band. Tatiana has two incredibly different styles that are at complete opposite ends of the spectrum. She first welcomes you in with her beautiful clean singing voice and then blows your mind with her deep screaming tone. It’s just an amazing thing to witness when she bellows those harsh screams. The Ukrainian band was formed in 2009, but wasn’t truly complete until Tatiana joined the band in 2010. JINJER released their debut ‘Inhale. Don’t Breathe’ in 2013, and followed that up in 2014 with ‘Cloud’. They also took home the the Best Ukrainian Metal Band of 2013 award. The band’s most recent release is ‘King Of Everything’ which released July 29th, 2016 and is their Napalm Records debut. The band is considered one of Ukraine’s best kept extreme metal secrets, the technically sophisticated four-piece JINJER represent an incredibly catchy mix of metalcore, djent, hardcore, and groove metal. Don’t even begin to compare them to any other female fronted band you’ve ever heard, they are their own breed of band. The band has now released a live intimate video of “Pisces” from their recent album. The song gives you a musical tour of everything the band is truly capable of. The band will be touring again starting end of March – check out all dates here.
