Jinjer release new official music video for “On The Top”!

Ukrainian modern metal front-runners Jinjer have returned with a vengeance! Today, Jinjer turns heads with a new music video for the gut-punching anthem “On The Top.

Never failing to deliver an unforgettable hook, “On The Top slinks along a punishing groove before soaring into melodic passages, just another example of what listeners can expect to be met with on the band’s upcoming full-length album, Macro, out in October 25th via Napalm Records.

“While one is climbing, the rest is falling down in the name of profit – Is it lonely on the top?”

The band states this about the new song/music video:

“Have you ever felt like a rat in a rat race? It seems like the world is spinning faster and faster every single day and everyone is going crazy searching for this thing called success. However, we tend to forget that real happiness has nothing to do with it- not a career, achievements, money etc. Is it really worth climbing up the ladder just to be ON to the TOP if there is nothing or no one there for you in the end? It’s OK to want to be the best you can possibly be but just remember that success has its price but it’s up to you to decide how much you are willing to pay for it. It’s your choice to make but your burden to bare …”

About the band:

In less than 10 years, the four-piece progressive groove metal wrecking machine known as Jinjer have carved their very own place in the heavy metal landscape and are poised to go even further in 2019 and beyond. Hailing from Donetsk, this Ukrainian musical oddity formed in 2009 but consider the official start of the band with the addition of the incredible vocalist and femme fatale, Tatiana Shmailyuk, in 2010. Since then, Jinjer have been nominated and won the Best Ukranian Metal Act award for Best Ukrainian Metal Band multiple times.

This year’s Micro EP was received with open arms by fans and critics alike, climbed to the top of many industry charts and radio station lists worldwide and once again showcased the musical depth and songwriting talent of the band, as well as Tatiana’s amazing vocal range. The band will build upon these successes with Macro.

 

Line-up:

Tatiana Shmailyuk – vocals
Roman Ibramkhalilov – guitars
Eugene Abdukhanov – bass
Vladislav Ulasevish – drums
