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.

Review: EX DEO – ‘The Immortal Wars’

Facebooktwittermail

After what has seemed like forever, Canadian death metal band Ex Deo has returned to bless us with their third full length release, ‘The Immortal Wars’. After releasing ‘Caligvla’ in 2012 with a bit of touring, the band decided it was time for a break in 2014. It was soon being reported that the return of the band was unlikely. Lead singer Maurizio Iacono, Jean-Francois Dagenais, Oli Beaudoin, and Stéphane Barbe went back to their main project in Kataklysm. Also featured in the band is Jonathan Leduc on the keyboards and François Mongrain on the bass guitar. Only a year later in 2015, the band announced that they were to begin work on their follow up. In January of 2016, it was revealed that the band’s next release would be titled ‘The Immortal Wars’. It has been a long road since then, but the time has finally come. On February 24th, 2017, Ex Deo will be releasing the album on Napalm Records. It was produced and mixed by Jens Bogren in Sweden. The Roman themed heavy metal band is prepared to unleash hell. You can preorder the new album here. Continue reading

After 36 years of touring and writing new music, Grave Digger is still at it putting out fantastic power metal anthems. Their new album, ‘Healed By Metal’ dropped on January 13th, 2017 on Napalm Records. It is their fourth release with the label and their 18th album overall. ‘Healed By Metal’ lives up to the big expectations following their previous, stellar release, ‘Return of the Reaper’ (2014). This record also features the debut of new keyboardist, Marcus Kniep. The rest of the band remains the same from the last album including Chris “Reaper” Boltendahl on the vocals, Stefan Arnold on drums, Jens Becker on bass, and Axel “Ironfinger” Ritt on the guitars. The German power metal band continues to put out strong material consistently almost every 2 years. You can buy ‘Healed By Metal’ on Amazon  or you can get it on iTunes. Continue reading
