    I thunk this band is full of talent. Amazing guitarist, bassist, and drummer. Great front woman too!

    Roman Ibramkhalilov, Jinjer's guitarist:



    And the whole band with their most popular video because it surprised viewers:

    I haven't listened to a full album of theirs, mostly songs they have up on Youtube. The first one I listened was Pisces and was blown away by the performance. A singer with a great vocal range, great musicians and nice riffs. Also a black ESP Horizon with what seems to be stock SD pickups at Drop A producing such a great guitar tone? Refreshing.

    Love them. It's always great fun to show Pices to an unsuspecting viewer/listener, especially those not that into metal :D I wouldn't be too suprised if I found them via this forum actually about 2 years back or so, because that's where I got more than half of the new bands from in the last 10 years or so, and it definitly wasn't from some friend or listening to it in a club or so... seen them live twice and they're spectacular, even better than on record, and Tatiana is one hell of a front woman. Every move, every smile, every slight variation to the songs, fits perfectly. As a bassist though, I always found me wanting chamaeleon eyes so I could focus on her and bassist Eugene at the same time. And jump around. :D It's great to see that they're getting the recognition they definitly deserve, touring the Americas, South Africa and all that.
    Last time, they opened with this one and her lows at ~4:00... that was probably the first time ever that I just stood there, jaw dropped, starring in disbelieve of what I just heard for a moment (hadn't heard that song before, not in that version, and even that recording doesn't really do it justice)

    I think her death growls are superior to Alissa from Arch Enemy. I first heard them on Liquid Metal and I thought they had two singers, I assumed a dude was doing the extreme vox.

    Big Jinjer fan here, have been since I first heard "Sit, Stay, Roll Over" when it was first put up on YouTube, and they haven't let me down since, this brand-new tune included! :metal:

    They were in my area recently. In Chicago on a Sunday, and in southern Wisconsin on a Monday. I regret that I did not get to see them live. I'm already old to be caught in the middle of a slam pit (do they still do that nowadays?), I have work so I can't stay up late, and I have kids and wife who wouldn't understand this.

    Yeah I saw that in their latest clip. But most of the previous clips and specifically those two posted above he's using the ESP and getting a heck of a tone in such a low tuning. With the new multiscale that can only improve in terms of clarity.

    Saw them live with Wintersun, Arch Enemy and Tribulation this year. My favourites among them in that show.

    I saw them live in small club at the begining of year. Maybe best live show of this year. Amazing voice and very “honest” performance. 6505+ some unknown 2x12 and that Horizon with Roman precise playing...sounded almost heavenly. Unfortunatelly after 2 songs he break string a changed guitar to some Ibanez copy and “godlike” sound was away, but still much better than average Peavey/ESP users sound -:)
    Next gig near my hometown is in January with Soliwork and Amorphis. Can’t wait.

    I tried listening to them when that video for "Pisces" suddenly started showing up everywhere. After a few songs my impression is that they're capable musicians playing wholly unremarkable songs (very similarly to the bassist and drummer from Mudvayne through most of their discography). Hearing that new one really sealed the deal for me. I felt like I was listening to Korn in the early 2000s again (as well as several aggressively bad metalcore bands), and not in a good way. Hey, I get that some listeners find it easy to connect to domestic abuse narratives, and who's to say that this song isn't written with absolute sincerity from a place of knowing what going through something like that feels like. However, I've yet to hear a song in that vein that impressed me from a songwriting perspective and whose only noteworthy trait wasn't limited to just being the shock value of the lyrics.

    Pass.

    I listen to the new album every now and then. The playing and vocals are awesome and what some think they might lack in writing, they sure make up with the overall attitude!

    This played on my siriusXM radio in my vehicle today and it definitely got my attention. This is absolutely beautiful especially right at 2:53 . :cool: I have never gotten into this band but something tells me that perhaps I should. :evil:

    I just discovered this band and it is totally kicking my ass. Most sensational thing I've heard in years.

    I came across jinjer randomly as I had spotify switch to "teacher, teacher" - a killer song off of their new 2019 EP.

    I didn't realize at first that the screams were created by the same woman who is clean singing and it's hard to believe. Unreal actually. Her clean singing is fantastic too.

    Just can't get enough of this band at the moment.

    I saw them last year and was surprised/blown away at how tight they sounded. Been a fan ever since. Arguably the best vocalist in metal at the moment.
