Jinjer Premiere “The Prophecy” Music Video

Jinjer have premiered a new video for their song “The Prophecy.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Macro.” Bassist Eugene Abdukhanov commented:

“When we wrote ‘The Prophecy’ in 2019, little did we know that it would prophesize things to come in 2020 … the entire screwed up, scary and confusing year all wrapped up in our brand new single. That being said — we are not only very excited for this new video, but to also announce that we will release videos for all tracks from our ‘Macro’ album. It’s the very least we can do in these strange times!”

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!”

Jinjer, Zlam, & Violateress Members Cover Sepultura’s “Mask”

Eugene Abdukhanov (Jinjer), Vladislav Ulasevich (Jinjer), Oleg (Zlam), and Sergey (Violateress) recently teamed up for a quarantine cover of Sepultura‘s “Mask.“ The group said the following about that:

“Taking the opportunity during lockdown to honor one of the best metal bands EVER, the mighty Sepultura, Vlad and Eugene joined fellow Ukrainian musicians/friends in Zlam and Violateress to cover “Mask” – not only a classic banger but it also fits the current state of the world today! Let the mask you put on your face entering stores be the only one you ever wear. Peace, Love and Harmony – Stay Safe and ENJOY!”

Jinjer Premiere “Noah” Music Video

Jinjer have premiered a new video for their song “Noah.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Macro.”

Bassist Eugene Abdukhanov commented:

“Tatiana wrote “Noah” from the point of view of what if he did not succeed in perpetuating Life on Earth? Looks like we might find out sooner than we think! Times are scarier, tougher and stranger than ever. Our/your livelihood and everything we know and cherish are on the verge being swept away by a storm like nothing we’ve faced before.

Will we have our own modern day Ark? Will we manage to jump on board in time or has it already set sail? What will be left over after it‘s all said and done? These questions are torturing all of us right now and the future is disturbingly uncertain. But we will survive and will get through this, like we did during so many dark times before. Together. Strong and revitalized with a much better understanding of what we are.”
