Jinjer pull out all the stops on their latest EP, setting them apart
If there was ever any doubt that Jinjer are an unstoppable force in the Metalcore scene, that can be erased with the release of their new EP, 'Micro'. Twenty minutes and five punishing tracks of some of their most progressive metal yet, Jinjer set off to prove they are not just another cliche. Album opener, "Ape", wastes no time in setting the tone for the whole album. Tatiana's clean and harsh vocals are amazing as usual but the music is a step up from previous efforts. Although every track is dynamic in its own way, standout tracks include "Teacher, Teacher!", and "Perennial". The album closer, "Micro" is a short, abstract piece that is probably a needless filler, but it doesn't hurt, especially coming after the four crushing songs that came before it. Jinjer are a band to be taken seriously and 'Micro' is proof of that. Any fan of Metalcore--or even progressive metal--needs to check this out!
