Watch Jinjer’s Full “Alive In Melbourne” Set

Jinjer have shared footage of their entire March 5, 2020 show at Max Watt’s House Of Music in Melbourne, Australia. That set is now available as a new live album titled “Alive In Melbourne.”

Eugene Abdiukhanov commented:

“When this idea first came about, never could I imagine that it would grow into the project that it has become. First it was supposed to be a single video or maybe 1 or 2 more, then it was meant to be an online concert video for Knotfest.com …. and now, after 6 months of planning, reacting and fighting to get this little piece of heavy metal history out to our fans and friends: Alive In Melbourne is out!

From picking the cover artist Gabriel Nicoletti, to writing the very intense and personal band history in the linear notes … this album was not only something that I felt that our fans deserved in these strange times but it also helped me get through some of my own darkest times during the first Covid-19 lockdown. This was a moment in time that none of us will forget anytime soon.”

Jinjer Premiere “Retrospection” Live Video

Jinjer have premiered a new live video for their song “Retrospection.“ The clip was recorded during the band’s March 5, 2020 show at Max Watt’s House Of Music in Melbourne, Australia. That set will be released as a live album titled “Alive In Melbourne” on November 20. Eugene Abdukhanov commented:

“It‘s still pretty incredible that 4 Ukrainians travelled 14,770 km just to sing in their native language… to the welcoming ears, eyes and open arms of Melbourne. This night will forever be burned in our hearts and the beat of ‘Retrospection‘ fit that night like never before. Shows like this should happen each time we perform and we cannot wait to get back on tour to make sure that happens every night. Until then just enjoy this moment in time called ‘Alive In Melbourne‘.”

Jinjer Premiere “Sit Stay Roll Over” Live Video

Jinjer have premiered a new live video for their song “Sit Stay Roll Over.“ The clip was filmed during the band’s March 5, 2020 show at Max Watt’s House Of Music in Melbourne, Australia. That set will be released as a live album, titled “Alive In Melbourne,” on November 20. The group said the following about “Sit Stay Roll Over’:

“For some, ‘Sit Stay Roll Over‘ was the so-called ignition point where lots of fans first took notice of Jinjer – and it‘s still a burner today even though it sometimes gets lost between all our other tracks! It’s also one of the most technically complicated and extreme songs we’ve ever written, taking the band to the outer realms of death metal… Even after all these years of performing it countless times it still takes quite a lot of effort and concentration to play flawlessly live. We‘re pretty excited to have it put back to the forefront again on our upcoming live album!”

Jinjer commented:

“Some shows just deserve to be carved in stone and memorialized forever. This was the case regarding our first ever Australian tour in March 2020, where we hit a few milestones all at once: we finally played on every continent there is to play on, our first time in down under was a complete sellout and more importantly we experienced the love, passion and craziness we’ve always heard so much about the Australian crowd.

Hell, there were even fans from New Zealand that showed up to the party. Now, after nearly half year of lockdown I can barely watch this footage without shedding a few tears. If any of you knew how much time, patience, nerves and effort we put into making this live album possible- you would probably be surprised we managed to pull it off at all.

Adversity kept coming and coming, and coming at us again and again but here we are ‘Alive In Melbourne‘ 2020 is real and it’s coming out in all it’s visual and sonic glory! Let’s watch it, listen to it and let’s remember how a real metal gig should look and sound: the sweat, the volume, the performance and the crowd … we need this feeling back! I am proud that we managed to capture this place in time and share it with you as our first official live album!”
